"The Hidden Ones" expansion is set several years in the past with the Romans in a mysterious region. The first expansion will be released in January 2018.
The Curse of the Pharaohs, on the other hand, is much more of a fantasy. During their journey, players will encounter famed Egyptian beasts such as Anubis warriors, scorpios and more, as they investigate the cause of the curse that has brought the dead pharaohs back to life. Scheduled for a March 2018 launch.
The announcement of these new features has no doubt created a new surge of excitement for the fans and with only 2 weeks to go until it is released on October 27, the hype is certainly intensifying with each and every day. The game is divided into two contents - the free, and the paid. For those interested in picking up the season pass, gamers will have to toss Ubisoft $40 and you'll automatically be granted access to the upcoming expansions as they officially release into the market. But what are the differences between the free and paid contents? At launch, you'll also get 500 Helix credits, an in-game currency, and a legendary weapon, the Calamity Blade.
Ubisoft has an interesting variety of games set to be released this Fall, including the latest game in the Assassin's Creed franchise.
The Season Pass for the game will add about two story-driven expansion that builds upon the growth of the Brotherhood and focusing on the Egyptian mythology.
The Season Pass will be available for $39.99, or it will be included in the Gold Edition of Assassin's Creed: Origins.
What are the free contents? The first activity, to begin with, is "The Nomad's Bazar". Available at the launch of the game. Kicking things off is a photo mode, which will allow you to take pictures on your travels and share them with the Assassin's Creed community directly through the game.
Photo Mode, Horde Mode, and Discovery Tour are three new modes that will be available to all players for free. 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.
Horde Mode: Players will fight endless waves of enemies in the Gladiator Arena.
