Assassin's Creed: Origins Post-Launch Content Revealed!

Assassin's Creed Origins will be updated with plenty of content after its launch. Of course, there'll be extra content released gradually for Season Pass Owners but there will be free content for all players as well!

Let's take a look at the content that will be included in the Season Pass..

500 Helix Credits and an exclusive rare weapon, the Calamity Blade – Both available at launch.

The Roman Centurion and Horus packs – These exclusive item packs will grant Season Pass holders a new outfit, weapons, shield, and mount when they become available in November of this year.

The Hidden Ones (DLC 1) – This expansion takes place years after the events of Assassin’s Creed Origins in a new region occupied by a Roman force. Bayek and the new Assassins will clash with the Romans as the Brotherhood continues to grow, and players will have a new level cap. Slated for release in January 2018.

The Curse of the Pharaohs (DLC 2) – The second expansion focuses on Egyptian mythology, pitting players against undead pharaohs and famed Egyptian monsters. Bayek will need to explore a mystical new realm and discover the root of the curse that has brought these creatures to life. This expansion will also raise the level cap again and introduce new skills for Bayek. Scheduled for a March 2018 launch.

And for the free content..

The Nomad’s Bazaar – Track down a wandering merchant who will give you daily quests to pursue and reward you with exotic mystery rewards. Available at launch.

Photo Mode – Capture the beauty of the Egyptian landscape, indulge your inner wildlife photographer, and discover interesting photos taken by other players. Available at launch.

The Trial of the Gods – Face off against the Egyptian gods in boss battles during special timed events, and receive valuable rewards for victory. Kicks off 15 days after launch.

Discovery Tour – This new game mode turns the world of Assassin’s Creed Origins into a combat-free living museum. Read more about this mode and the educational guided tours in our previous coverage. Available in early 2018.

Horde Mode – Hone your skills with blade and bow against endless waves of enemies in the Gladiator Arena, see how your scores stack up, and challenge your friends asynchronously. Available in early 2018.

Trailer for the Post-Launch content..

The Curse of the Pharaohs looks really interesting. Looks similar to AC 3's DLC where it breaks out of the main story and dives deep into the mythology. It will be cool to come up against all these crazy creatures. just for the fun of it.

Discovery Tour sounds really cool. The AC games have always been a visual spectacle as well as being very historically accurate. It will be nice to explore Egypt in the game without having to deal with the annoying guards.

The developers have also been pushing the notion that this game will be more RPG-based so it will be cool to test my skills in The Trials of the Gods as well as Horde Mode. It will be a nice incentive to keep playing long after completing the game.. so long as they don't push micro-transactions as pay-to-win.

So, all-in-all, this is the timeline for all Post-Launch Content..

I have always bought the Season Pass and all extra content for the AC games and it will be no different this time. I have mostly enjoyed the extra content that have accompanied the AC games and expect this to be similar.

What about you guys? Any of this content interest you or are you content with the main game? Let me know in the comments below..
