Ubisoft revealed their Season Pass DLC and the free content they have planned for Assassin’s Creed Origins on Twitter today. It looks like there is some interesting expansions in the future of Assassin’s Creed, especially if you like Egyptian culture.
For starters, people who purchased the Season Pass or a Gold Edition of the game, are obviously able to access all the DLC. Ubisoft did not state whether these expansions were being sold separately, each purchasable DLC has a month of release, so it is possible.
The Hidden Ones (DLC 1) – This expansion takes place years after the events of Assassin’s Creed Origins in a new region occupied by a Roman force. Bayek and the new Assassins will clash with the Romans as the Brotherhood continues to grow, and players will have a new level cap. Slated for release in January 2018.
The Curse of the Pharaohs (DLC 2) – The second expansion focuses on Egyptian mythology, pitting players against undead pharaohs and famed Egyptian monsters. Bayek will need to explore a mystical new realm and discover the root of the curse that has brought these creatures to life. This expansion will also raise the level cap again and introduce new skills for Bayek. Scheduled for a March 2018 launch.
The Roman Centurion and Horus packs – These exclusive item packs will grant Season Pass holders a new outfit, weapons, shield, and mount when they become available in November of this year.
500 Helix Credits and an exclusive rare weapon, the Calamity Blade – Both available at launch.
If you don’t have the Season Pass, not to worry. There is still plenty of free content on the way for Origins. In fact, most of it appears to be at launch, with a few items coming in sometime in early 2018. At least non-Season Pass holders won’t be too shafted.
The Trial of the Gods – Face off against the Egyptian gods in boss battles during special timed events, and receive valuable rewards for victory. Kicks off 15 days after launch.
The Nomad’s Bazaar – Track down a wandering merchant who will give you daily quests to pursue and reward you with exotic mystery rewards. Available at launch.
Photo Mode – Capture the beauty of the Egyptian landscape, indulge your inner wildlife photographer, and discover interesting photos taken by other players. Available at launch.
Discovery Tour – This new game mode turns the world of Assassin’s Creed Origins into a combat-free living museum. Read more about this mode and the educational guided tours in our previous coverage. Available in early 2018.
Horde Mode – Hone your skills with blade and bow against endless waves of enemies in the Gladiator Arena, see how your scores stack up, and challenge your friends asynchronously. Available in early 2018.
