Ubisoft has released a new trailer for Assassin’s Creed Origins detailing all of the content coming to the game following its October 27 release. In short, there’ll be two story-driven DLCs, with one of these being an undead-themed Egyptian mummy expansion, The Curse of the Pharaohs. The trailer also lists all of the free DLC coming post-launch, which includes things like the Horde mode, and the educational Discovery Tour.
The Assassin’s Creed Origins season pass grants access to both of the story-driven DLCs. The first of these is called The Hidden Ones, which comes out in January 2018. The second DLC is called The Curse of the Pharaohs, and will be released in March 2018. Both feature the game’s protagonist Bayek, so either he won’t die in a blaze of glory at the end of Origins, or they're set mid-story.
Thanks to a glitch in the Animus, players will be able to engage in epic battles against Egyptian gods in Trials of the Gods. The first of these time-limited events will take place shortly after the Origins release, with the promise of ‘prestigious awards’ for taking part.
Finally, players will be able to complete daily quests to unlock a variety of mysterious loot and rewards at The Nomad’s Bazaar. Like other recent big releases there’ll be loot chests in Origins, but they won’t require you to dip into your own money as they’ll be purchasable using only the in-game currency. Neat-o.
Assassin’s Creed Origins is out on October 27 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
