Assassin's Creed Assassin's Creed Origins Ubisoft

Assassin's Creed: Origins isn't even out and Ubisoft is already preparing to milk their product with a season pass (at least the game includes free add-on content, which I suppose makes a difference). The season pass will include new storyline quests, timed events, and customizable items.

The Hidden Ones 

This story-driven expansion builds upon the growth of the Brotherhood; taking players years after the events of Assassin's Creed: Origins as they clash with an occupying Roman force in a new region. This expansion will extend the level cap, allowing players to keep on making their character progress. It will be out in January 2018.

The Curse of the Pharaohs

In this story-driven expansion focusing on Egyptian mythology, players will fight against undead pharaohs and explore a mystical realm. During their journey, players will encounter famed Egyptian beasts such as Anubis warriors, giant scorpions, and more. The Curse of the Pharaohs will increase the level cap further and introduce brand new abilities. This one will be out on March 2018.

The Roman Centurion and Horus Packs

These are two exclusive add-on packs that include a new outfit, weapons, shield, and mount, and will be available on November, 2017.

A package of 500 Helix Credits and the Calamity Blade, a weapon which sounds like it should be in a Final Fantasy game, will also be available at the title's launch.

The season pass is included in the Assassin's Creed: Origins Gold Edition and is also available for purchase separately for $39.99.

Free Content

If new storylines, increased level caps, and quests aren't enough, Ubisoft is tossing a bone with free add-on content to challenge players. These include:

  • The Trials of the Gods
    Epic boss battles against Egyptian gods that take place during special timed events; with victorious players receiving prestigious rewards. The first Trial of the Gods event will be available 15 days after the launch of the game.

  • The Nomad's Bazaar
    A wandering merchant gives players daily quests to complete in order to earn mysterious exotic rewards. Available at the launch of the game

  • Photo Mode
    Players will be able to capture and share the beauty of the Egyptian landscape and indulge their inner wildlife photographer while discovering in-game pictures taken by other players. Available at the launch of the game.

  • Horde Mode
    Players will fight endless waves of enemies in the Gladiator Arena. They will be able to compare their scores with friends and challenge them asynchronously. Available in early 2018.

  • Discovery Tour 
    This new educational mode turns the world of Assassin's Creed: Origins into a combat-free living museum and will give everyone the opportunity to learn more about Ancient Egypt through guided tours curated by historians and Egyptologists. Available early 2018

Assassin's Creed: Origins
will be available on October 27, 2017
