The game will be available on October 27th. While there's some intriguing DLC on the way via two big story packs next year, 2017's free content is looking ridiculously good fun. Bayek and the new Assassins will clash with the Romans as the Brotherhood continues to grow. The latter, meanwhile, will introduce a "a new, mystical realm" in which you'll encounter "beasts such as Anubis warriors, scorpios, and more" as you investigate the curse that has resurrected dead Pharaohs.
These DLCs will include story expansions, new weapons, outfits, shields, mounts, and credits. At launch, you'll also get 500 Helix credits, an in-game currency, and a legendary weapon, the Calamity Blade. Check out everything included in the season pass at the bottom of this article, via Ubisoft. For more, check out our breakdown of all six Assassin's Creed special editions.
The Horde Mode will let players fight an endless battle against different enemies in the Gladiator Arena, which will be launched on early 2018.
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. Kicking things off is a photo mode, which will allow you to take pictures on your travels and share them with the Assassin's Creed community directly through the game.
Ubisoft has announced plans to release new adaptations of Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune for the PS4 and Xbox One next month. Players will be taken to a story several years after what happened in the base game, which will be a battle against the occupying Roman army in another region. This will open up a new region and also up the level cap which we now know is sitting at 40. Slated for release in January 2018.
The second DLC pack, The Curse of the Pharaohs, is the most exciting though.
The Curse of the Pharaohs, on the other hand, is much more of a fantasy. Available at the launch of the game. The first Trial of the Gods event will be available 15 days after the launch of the game.
Finally, players will be able to complete daily quests to unlock a variety of mysterious loot and rewards at The Nomad's Bazaar. They will be able to compare their scores with their friends and challenge them asynchronously.
