Assassin's Creed Origins to Feature Free Post-Launch Content

The Assassin's Creed Origins season pass includes two DLC packs, one of which is all about undead Pharaohs

Assassin's Creed Origins, the first brand new AC game since 2015, is due for release on October 27th, 2017 and takes the franchise to ancient Egypt for the first time, putting players in the role of Bayek as he fights back against Roman legionaires. Players will be able to continue exploring a vast and mystical Ancient Egypt thanks to a wide variety of post-launch content including several hours of new storyline expansions & quests, timed events and customization items. The first expansion will be released in January 2018. 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. Bayek will need to explore a mystical new realm and discover the root of the curse that has brought these creatures to life. This DLC is coming out later, in March 2018.

The season pass will cover two major expansion packs. But the developer would not sell these downloadable contents without buying the Season Pass, which costs $39.99. Before then though, season pass purchasers will be on the receiving end of two content packs, each containing an outfit, a mount, a shield and a couple of weapons. They will also be available for free to all players. At launch you'll receive 500 Helix Credits and the Calamity Blade exclusive weapon. Completing the said daily activity will give players new in-game contents after the official launch. Yeah, thought so. The Trials of the Gods event is kicking off 15 days after launch on October 27, and means huge boss battles against the biggest names in Egyptian hieroglyphs. Players can also use the Photo Mode and Horde Mode.

Horde Mode: Players will fight endless waves of enemies in the Gladiator Arena. The Photo Mode allows players to capture wonderful pictures and landscapes around their characters. They will be able to compare their scores with their friends and challenge them asynchronously.

Promising a attractive and vast open world to explore and also get a little bit stabby in, Assassin's Creed Origins looks set to revitalise the series; something that we're very happy about.
