Assassin's Creed Origins Post-Launch Content Revealed

Assassin's Creed Origins Post-Launch Content Revealed

Ubisoft has an extensive plan to support Assassin's Creed: Origins following its release later this month. The Hidden Ones will be coming out in January 2018. The new installment will feature both a hefty season pass and smaller add-on content packs, most of which will be free of charge. It takes players years after the events of the title as they take on an occupying Roman force in a new region.

"We're committed at offering meaningful and solid new content for players post-launch so they can keep on enjoying their experience with our game." said Ashraf Ismail, Game Director. 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. It will also include two outfits, weapons, and more.

Also revealed as part of the free launch and post launch content loot drop is the Nomad's Bazaar, a wandering merchant who'll hand out quests for exotic loot, as well as a horde mode for the Gladiator arena, and, most importantly, a photo mode.

The second DLC pack, The Curse of the Pharaohs, is the most exciting though.

Good news for fans of Assassin's Creed, ancient Egypt, saving money or all of the above-if you happen to be an Amazon Prime member, you can pre-order yourself a copy of Assassin's Creed Origins for only $48 right now. "The Curse of the Pharaohs" expansion will be released in March 2018.

According to a report by GottaBeMobile, players who paid extra for "Assassin's Creed Origins" can get 500 Helix Credits and a Calamity Blade weapon.

The Roman Centurion and Horus Packs: Two exclusive add-on packs including a new outfit, weapons, shield and mount. Available at the launch of the game.

Photo Mode: Players will be able to capture and share the beauty of the Egyptian landscape and indulge their inner wildlife photographer while discovering in-game pictures taken by other players.

The Trial of the Gods - Face off against the Egyptian gods in boss battles during special timed events, and receive valuable rewards for victory. The first Trial of the Gods event will be available 15 days after the launch of the game.

The game will be playable on Xbox One, Xbox One X, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro and Windows PC.

The Season Pass will be available for $39.99, or it will be included in the Gold Edition of Assassin's Creed: Origins.

Players who bought the basic "Assassin's Creed Origins" will get all the free updates, modes, and in-game activities.
