Assassin’s Creed Origins has revealed the release dates for all its upcoming DLC, and it looks like Bayek will be busy for the next three months.
Origins‘ first major story expansion, The Hidden Ones, will launch on January 23rd. Set four years after the events in the mainj game, The Hidden Ones will see Bayek’s growing Brotherhood clash with a Roman force that’s occupying the Sinai, a new region being added to the map. The Hidden Ones will raise the level cap from 40 to 45, and will unlock new Legendary weapons, mounts, a new outfit, and more.
Discovery Tour—you know, the previously announced combat-free mode that will include daily tours of ancient Egypt curated by historians—will launch on February 20th. Players who already own Origins will receive Discovery Tour as a free update, while players who don’t own the game can purchase a standalone version of Discovery Tour for $19.99 on PC.
Finally, the second and final story expansion, The Curse of the Pharaohs, will launch on March 6th. Curse of the Pharaohs will see Bayek fighting against Egypt’s mythological beasts and the mummies of dead pharaohs as he investigates a curse. So much for historical accuracy. Curse of the Pharaohs will raise the level cap to 55 and will include new weapons, gear, and outfits that are themed around Egyptian mythology.
Ubisoft just released a free update to get Origins ready for The Hidden Ones that included a free precursor mission to the DLC plus some new items. However, in order to raise your level cap and explore the new region, you’ll have to purchase the DLC.
Assassin’s Creed Origins is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
