Ubisoft has announced the release dates for both the Season Pass and free add-on content for Assassin’s Creed Origins. The wide variety of content, which includes new story expansions and quests, timed events, and customization items, promises to add “several hours” to Ancient Egypt-set open-world game.
Here are the details:
DLC 1: The Hidden Ones (January 23) – Included with $39.99 Season Pass / Available separately for $9.99
This story-driven expansion builds upon the growth of the Brotherhood, taking players four years after the events of Assassin’s Creed Origins as they clash with an occupying Roman force in a new region of the world, the Sinai. This expansion will increase the level cap to 45, allowing players to continue to upgrade and customize their character. Players will have access to four new Legendary weapons, a new outfit, two new mounts and multiple new weapons as well as two new levels for all crafted gear.

Discovery Tour by Assassin’s Creed: Ancient Egypt (February 20) – Available as a free update for all Assassin’s Creed Origins owners / Available for purchase separately for $19.99 on Uplay and Steam for Windows PC
This new educational mode of the game lets everyone, from players to history-enthusiasts and non-gamers, choose between free roaming the beautiful world of Ancient Egypt to learn more about its history and daily life or embarking on guided tours curated by historians and Egyptologists. People can discover and explore a world free of conflict, time pressure or gameplay constraints, where storyline and quests are not active and the world of Ancient Egypt evolves into a combat-free living museum.
DLC 2: The Curse of the Pharaohs (March 6) – Included with $39.99 Season Pass / Available separately for $9.99
This new expansion offers players a completely new storyline to delve into as they travel to Thebes to investigate an ancient curse that is plaguing the region. The Curse of the Pharaohs focuses on Egyptian mythology, pitting players against famous pharaohs and Egyptian beasts as they investigate the cause of the curse that has brought the dead pharaohs back to life. This new piece of content will increase the level cap to 55 and give players access to new outfits and gear, including rare and legendary weapons, all themed around classic Egyptian mythology.
In addition to the two downloadable expansions listed above, the Season Pass includes the “Horus Pack” and “Roman Centurion Pack” with their own set of weapons, mounts, and outfits, a legendary weapon, and 500 Helix credits.
Ubisoft notes that a wide variety of free content, including “Trials of the Gods” and a new quest, “Incoming Threat,” a prelude to “DLC 1: The Hidden Ones,” in which players must head-off an incoming incursion and find where its coming from, will be available for all Assassin’s Creed Origins players.
Assassin’s Creed Origins is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
