Yesterday afternoon, Ubisoft Communications Specialist Chris Watters published an informative blog post regarding the upcoming Season Pass DLC and free content plans for Assassin’s Creed Origins.The trailer embedded above includes a brief overview of this content and timeline images along with further descriptions are listed below.
Season Pass Content Includes:
The Hidden Ones (DLC 1) – This expansion takes place years after the events of Assassin’s Creed Origins in a new region occupied by a Roman force. Bayek and the new Assassins will clash with the Romans as the Brotherhood continues to grow, and players will have a new level cap. Slated for release in January 2018.
The Curse of the Pharaohs (DLC 2) – The second expansion focuses on Egyptian mythology, pitting players against undead pharaohs and famed Egyptian monsters. Bayek will need to explore a mystical new realm and discover the root of the curse that has brought these creatures to life. This expansion will also raise the level cap again and introduce new skills for Bayek. Scheduled for a March 2018 launch.
The Roman Centurion and Horus packs – These exclusive item packs will grant Season Pass holders a new outfit, weapons, shield, and mount when they become available in November of this year.
500 Helix Credits and an exclusive rare weapon, the Calamity Blade – Both available at launch.
Free Content Includes:
The Trial of the Gods – Face off against the Egyptian gods in boss battles during special timed events, and receive valuable rewards for victory. Kicks off 15 days after launch.
The Nomad’s Bazaar – Track down a wandering merchant who will give you daily quests to pursue and reward you with exotic mystery rewards. Available at launch.
Photo Mode – Capture the beauty of the Egyptian landscape, indulge your inner wildlife photographer, and discover interesting photos taken by other players. Available at launch.
Discovery Tour – This new game mode turns the world of Assassin’s Creed Origins into a combat-free living museum. Read more about this mode and the educational guided tours in our previous coverage. Available in early 2018.
Horde Mode – Hone your skills with blade and bow against endless waves of enemies in the Gladiator Arena, see how your scores stack up and challenge your friends asynchronously. Available in early 2018.
Based on all the details above, I would say that Assassin’s Creed Origins will have plenty of content to keep fans busy well into 2018 even if they decide not to pick up the Season Pass right away. The Discovery Tour is one feature that I’m certainly interested in as it truly will test the development team’s knowledge of history as it relates to the game.
Assassin’s Creed Origins launches worldwide on October 27th for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Are any of you looking forward to the game and if so do you plan on picking up the Season Pass? Please feel free to let us know in the comments section below.
