Undead Pharaoh Mayhem Coming Late
Assassin's Creed Origins is the latest game in the series of, well, assassinating people. The games see you take on the role of fictional members of a secret society of assassins at various points in the past. The games have previously taken players to Italy and the Carribean, and the latest title has you gallivanting around ancient Egypt as one of the titular assassins. A gameplay trailer for the DLC has been released alongside the announcement of the one-week delay.
The Curse of the Pharaohs DLC will see a few new settings added to the game - namely Thebes, the Valley of the Kings, and the Egyptian afterlife. Grave robbers have stolen artifacts from the tombs of the pharaohs, and (to the surprise of no one) this has somewhat angered their restless spirits. It's up to you to right these wrongs and put a stop to the undead pharaohs who are tormenting the land, and you'll have to travel to the afterlife to do it. There you will see some unique elements of Egyptian mythology like the fact that they believed part of your soul was represented by a bird with a face on it. You'll be able to fight these new enemies with new abilities that can be earned by leveling up to the new level cap of 55.
Originally, Assassin's Creed Origins - Curse of the Pharaohs was aiming to release on March 6, 2018. That date has now been pushed back a week to the following Tuesday of March 13, 2018. If want to get your hands on the DLC, you can grab it as part of the Season Pass for the game or purchase it individually on release for $20 or your regional equivalent. You can pick up the game (and its upcoming DLC) on the PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
