'Assassin's Creed Origins' (ALL) Post-Launch Content and Discovery Tour Details - Screens

The latest installment in the open-world, action-adventure series, Assassin's Creed Origins is set in ancient Egypt.

For the last four years, the team at Ubisoft Montreal behind Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag has been crafting a new beginning for the Assassin’s Creed franchise.

In Assassin’s Creed Origins, the action takes place in Ancient Egypt, the most mysterious place in history, during a crucial period that will shape civilization. Playing as Bayek, a protector of Egypt whose personal story will lead to the creation of the Assassin’s Brotherhood, players will plunge into a living, systemic open world, and discover the secrets behind the Great Pyramids, forgotten myths, the last pharaohs, and – engraved in long-lost hieroglyphics – the origin story of the Assassin’s Brotherhood.

Assassin’s Creed Origins is a brand-new vision for the franchise embracing Action-RPG elements where players level up, loot and choose their abilities to customize their very own skilled Assassin. They will experience a completely new combat system, allowing them to attack and defend multiple enemies at once and equip ultra-rare weapons against unique and powerful bosses.

A revamped narrative experience allows total freedom for players to choose and complete quests at their own pace, each telling an intense and emotional story full of colorful characters and meaningful objectives.

With an entire country to explore, from deserts to lush oases, from the Mediterranean Sea to the tombs of Giza, players will fight against dangerous factions and wild beasts as they explore this gigantic and unpredictable land.


Ubisoft revealed release dates for upcoming Assassin’s Creed Origins post-launch content, including season pass content and free add-on content available to all players. Players can continue their journey through Ancient Egypt with a wide variety of content including several hours of new storyline expansions and quests, timed events and customization items.

DLC 1 - The Hidden Ones: 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. The Hidden Ones DLC is available for all season pass owners or can be purchased separately for $9.99 on January 23, 2018.

Discovery Tour by Assassin’s Creed: Ancient Egypt: 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.

Discovery Tour will be available as a free update for all Assassin’s Creed Origins owners and will be available for purchase separately for $19.99 on Uplay and Steam for Windows PC on February 20, 2018.

DLC 2 - The Curse of the Pharaohs: 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. The Curse of the Pharaohs DLC will be available for season pass owners or can be purchased separately for $19.99 on March 6, 2018.

The season pass is included in the Assassin’s Creed Origins Gold Edition and, in addition to the two DLC, includes the Horus Pack and Roman Centurion Pack with their own set of weapons, mounts and outfits, a legendary weapon and 500 Helix credits. The season pass is also available for purchase separately for $39.99.

Additionally, 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.
