The REAL Dawn Of The Dead
By going back to the very beginning, it seems that Ubisoft have managed to breathe new life into the Assassin’s Creed series. We have to pin this on both the characters and setting, given how the game’s portrayal of Egypt was nothing of magnificent, while Bayek’s bloodstained journey was so investing we were getting hardcore Ezio flashbacks.
As to be expected, so much success is bound to bring about DLC. According to an article on Gamespot, Assassin’s Creed Origins has two expansions on the way, both offering plenty more content as well as the promise Bayek facing off against some of Egyptian mythology’s scariest customers.
Assassin’s Creed Origins is about to get its first DLC expansion. Called The Hidden Ones, it will introduce several hours of new story along with side quests, events, and items. Ubisoft has now confirmed the expansion will release on January 23 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
The Hidden Ones is a story-driven expansion that shares more about the growth of the Brotherhood. It takes place four years after the events of the main game in the Sinai, where players will clash with an occupying Roman force. The expansion increases the level cap to 45 and introduces two new legendary weapons, a new outfit, two new mounts, and multiple new weapons to the game.
Ubisoft also revealed more information about Origins’ second DLC, The Curse of Pharaohs. Unlike The Hidden Ones, Pharaohs will introduce a brand-new storyline, separate from the main game. This DLC will pit players against famous pharaohs and Egyptian beasts, and tasks you with investigating the cause of a curse that has brought the dead back to life. The Curse of Pharaohs releases on March 6.
Here’s hoping we’ll be able to let loose Bayek’s inner Kratos and slice apart the worst that the Land of the Dead has to offer.
