Assassin's Creed Origins Will Release Free Updates and the First Major Expansion in January

Ubisoft is kickstarting Assassin's Creed Origins' 2018 with a bang.

Assassin's Creed Origins will be receiving some big content updates this year starting this month. Ubisoft is promising to release a mix of free updates and DLC expansions across all platforms for January.

While there's no exact date yet, Ubisoft will release a new quest later this month that will lead into the first expansion titled, "The Hidden Ones."

In addition, Heka chests will now have more items available as rewards, adding items from the Nightmare, First Civilization, Gladiator, and Wacky packs into the pool of items players can win. Players will also be able to sell their outfits at weavers shops for extra cash.

All of this is in preparation for The Hidden Ones. If you recall when Ubisoft announced its 2018 content plan last year, The Hidden Ones features Bayek face off against the invading Romans who have taken over an entirely new region in the game.

The expansion will introduce a new story, full of new locales and characters, as well as raise the level cap from 40 to 45. The expansion is free for season pass holders, but non-subscribers will presumably pay for the expansion.

Ubisoft also announced that the Trials of the Gods limited event will return this month. Players will be able to face off against Anubis from January 9 to 16, and Sobek from January 23 to 30.

The updates, expansion, and limited timed events will be coming Assassin's Creed Origins later this month on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
