Assassin’s Creed Origins DLC gets dates

Ubisoft have finally revealed the dates you can play Assassin’s Creed Origins’ major DLC.

First up, The Hidden Ones will arrive on January 23rd, though it did briefly appear on Xbox Live earlier today. Mistakenly, of course!

The highly anticipated Discovery Tour update is next up on February 20th, and finally the second and final major piece of content – The Curse of the Pharaohs – will release on March 6.

The Hidden Ones will follow the tale of the growing brotherhood and takes place four years after the events of Origins. It increases the level cap to 45 and opens up the Sinai region for exploration.

The Discovery Tour update will be free to everyone who owns Origins, or can be purchased as a standalone experience on PC for $20. Fighting and collecting is switched off for the mode, and the core experience will be about discovery and learning through Ancient Egypt.

Finally, The Curse of the Pharaohs will tie in with Thebes as you explore a curse which is plaguing the region. This will also include new gear and it will increase the level cap to 55.

More news on these pieces of content as we get them.
