Assassin’s Creed: Origins Curse of the Pharaohs delayed until March 13

The second and final DLC in the current Assassin’s Creed: Origins Season Pass – Curse of the Pharaohs – has been delayed until March 13.

It was originally scheduled to release March 6, but has been pushed back a week for some last minute polish and to ‘deliver the best experience possible to our players’ according to a Ubisoft spokesperson.

The DLC is included in the $20 Season Pass and will receive an introductory quest in the base Origins game on February 27, entitled Lights Among the Dunes.

Alternatively, if you want something a bit more relaxing, The Discovery Tour DLC just released this month.

Curse of the Pharaohs is a massive expansion which adds the location of Aaru, undead Nefertiti and giant scorpions. The storyline will be seperate from the main game and see you fighting Egyptian beasts and pharaohs with a raised level cap to 55 and new gear and weapons.
