Assassin's Creed Origins Season Pass DLC Pits Bayek Against Roman Centurions, Undead Mummies

Ubisoft outlined Assassin's Creed Origins' post-launch DLC, both paid and free.

Assassin's Creed Origins is out this month and today Ubisoft laid out its post-release content plans for the game. This includes the two pieces of DLC planned for the Season Pass, as well as free content that will be available for everyone who purchased the game.

The first DLC to launch for the Assassin's Creed Origins Season Pass is a new story mission called 'The Hidden Ones' which is a story DLC that takes place some years after the base Origins storyline. On the Sinai Peninsula, occupying Roman forces are holding Egyptian cities hostage. Bayek will try and liberate the Egyptians from the Romans in a completely new region from the location in the base game. The level cap will also be increased in this DLC. This DLC will be out in January, 2018.

The second DLC is called 'The Curse of the Pharaohs' and it will see Bayek enter a mythical area where he must battle it out against the supernatural forces of Ancient Egypt like mummies, Anubis warriors, scorpios, and more. All the while players will have to figure out why a Pharaoh has risen from the dead to sow mayhem and destruction. The second DLC is out March, 2018.

The Season Pass will also unlock two outfit packs called The Roman Centurion set and the Hours set which will give Bayek Roman and Egyptian armor respectively, along with new mounts.

As for the free content that will roll out to owners of the game, these include a Trials of the Gods boss rush mode where Bayek encounters a glitch in the Animus and must fight against gigantic Egyptian gods. Another is The Nomad's Bazaar where a wandering merchant will offer players a unique daily quest that they can complete to earn exotic loot. And lastly there will be a photo mode because have you seen the game? It's gorgeous.

Assassin's Creed Origins takes Ubisoft's Assassin story to its ancient beginnings, and based on what I played and official previews it seems like Origins might be one of the most ambitious entries into the series in terms of scope and mythology.

Assassin's Creed Origins is out on October 28 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
