Assassin’s Creed Origins will be getting free and paid content after launch
Your adventures in Egypt won't end just because the game does.
As is common among big-budget AAA games these days, Ubisoft won't be done with its upcoming stealth action game Assassin's Creed Origins at launch. The studio has a wealth of post-release content planned for the game, and today it's revealed exactly what players can expect both in terms of free and paid options.
Those who purchase the Season Pass will receive two major DLC packs: The Hidden Ones, an expansion that sees protagonist Bayek take on Roman forces in an entirely new region with an increased level cap; and The Curse of the Pharaohs, which pits Bayek against undead Pharaohs and monsters from Egyptian mythology in a supernatural realm. The Hidden Ones is slated for release in January 2018, while The Curse of the Pharaohs is due in March 2018.
Check out our hands-on with Assassin's Creed Origins
We've delved into the tombs of Assassin's Creed Origins and uncovered all the juicy details on what to expect from the upcoming game.
On the free side of things, Assassin's Creed Origins will be getting a series of timed events 15 days after launch where players can take on Egyptian gods for special rewards. In early 2018, the recently-unveiled Discovery Mode will turn the world of Origins completely docile, allowing players to soak in the wonders of Egypt without hostility. Finally, early 2018 will also bring a horde mode where players will fight against waves of enemies inside a gladiatorial arena, with online leaderboards to compare your scores against the rest of the world.
