Ubisoft has detailed the content included in the Assassin’s Creed Origins season pass, as well as a host of free content that will be made available to players post-launch.
In a post on the Ubisoft blog, Ubisoft revealed Assassin’s Creed Origins will have two major DLC packs included in the season pass. “The Hidden Ones” will launch in January 2018 and will take place years after the events of the main game. It will feature a growing Brotherhood as they clash with an occupying Roman force, and will raise the level cap for players.
The second DLC pack, “The Curse of the Pharoahs,” will launch in March 2018 and will focus on Egyptian mythology. Players will battle undead pharaohs and other monsters with new skills and a further increased level cap.
The season pass will include both DLC packs, as well as the Roman Centurion and Horus packs, which will be available in November 2017 and include new outfits, weapons, shields, and mounts. The season pass will also include an exclusive weapon and 500 Helix credits. The season pass is available both on its own and bundled in the Assassin’s Creed Origins Gold Edition.
Ubisoft also revealed post-launch bonus content that will be available for free to all players. The Nomad’s Bazaar will feature a traveling merchant that gives players daily quests, granting exotic mystery rewards. The Nomad’s Bazaar and a Photo Mode will be available at launch.
The Trial Of The Gods will pit players against Egyptian gods in boss battles during timed special events. This feature will first be available 15 days after the launch of Origins.
In early 2018, Discovery Tour and Horde Mode will be released. As previously detailed, Discovery Tour will remove the combat element of the game, allowing players to explore the world and learn about Egypt. Horde Mode will feature endless wave-based combat in a Gladiator Arena, where players compete asynchronously for the high-score.
Assassin’s Creed Origins will have the series’ first difficulty settings and will release on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on October 27.
