Assassin’s Creed: Origins ‑The Curse of the Pharaohs DLC Delayed

Ubisoft appar­ent­ly need­ed a week delay for the lat­est DLC, The Curse of the Pharaohs, which was intend­ed to be released on March 6th. Instead, it will now launch of March 13th.

A gen­er­al rea­son of “deliv­er­ing the best expe­ri­ence for play­ers” was giv­en by Ubisoft. This expan­sion is includ­ed in the $20 sea­son pass, or can be pur­chased sep­a­rate­ly on all plat­forms. How­ev­er, every play­er gets access to the intro­duc­to­ry quest of the Curse of Pharaohs. You can play Light Among the Dunes, as part of a free update, on Feb­ru­ary 27th (if there’s no delay). 

The Curse of the Pharaohs takes you to the new loca­tions, like Thebes and Val­ley of the Kings. Expect to see “camel-sized scor­pi­ons”, Anu­bis-like guards, and undead pharaohs. The pharaohs will ran­dom­ly man­i­fest and have a time-lim­it to defeat. If you can beat this mini-boss­es before they go back to they go back, you will acquire loot and save some civil­ians. How­ev­er, Ubisoft warns they’re the most threat­en­ing part of the DLC and the game.

Bayek is also receiv­ing a lev­el cap increase, to 55, along with sev­en new unlock-able abilities. 

The sto­ry­line sur­rounds the Pharao­h’s Curse, which is caused by graves rob­bers des­e­crat­ing the Val­ley of the Kings. This brings the pharaohs out to Thebes, where they are slaugh­ter­ing the inno­cent. Bayek is tasked with find­ing key arti­facts of each pharaoh, so he can put them to rest.
