Ubisoft has revealed its plans for Assassin’s Creed: Origins’s post-release content through January, which includes its first major piece of DLC.
On a recent post on the game’s official website, the publisher outlined the plans to further support Assassin’s Creed: Origins with new content spanning from the January 9 to 30. Leading the month will be a title update that includes a new questline celebrating the arrival of ‘The Hidden Ones’ expansion pack where players will get to explore a different region while fighting against Roman soldiers. Those who have already reached maximum level in game will pleased to know that the level cap has increased from 40 to 45 as well. However, no specific date for either the update or the expansion has yet been unveiled.
Changes to the in-game loot box system will also be made by adding the items previously found in the Nightmare, Wacky, Gladiator, and First Civilization packs into the item pool. Players will also now have the option to sell their unwanted outfits at weaver shops.
January also sees the inclusion of more Trials of the Gods missions. The first of the trials will be available between January 9 and 16 , when gamers will have the opportunity to take on the god of the dead, Anubis, once more. The second trial running between the January 23 and 30 will again feature the crocodile god, Sobek.
Several new packs will be added to the game that showcase additional weapons, including a pack tied into another Ubisoft title, For Honor, which features weapons from the Viking, Samurai, and Knight factions. Members of the Ubisoft Club will be able to purchase the Warden’s Oath outfit for 40 Uplay Units. The costume resembles one of the playable characters—the Warden—from For Honor.
