Assassin's Creed Origins - Curse of the Pharaohs detailed, slightly delayed

Following the release of Discovery Tour, the next and last major DLC offering for Assassin's Creed Origins is the Curse of the Pharaohs expansion. While it was originally set to release on March 6, it has received a slight delay and will now release on March 13.

This DLC introduces the city of Thebes, where Bayek is sent to claim a mysterious artifact. He finds much more than that, however, with undead pharaohs lining the streets, murdering the populace. Bayek must then solve this 'Curse of the Pharaohs' by finding artifacts tied to each of these spirits in order to put them to rest.


The DLC boosts the level cap to 55 and offers seven new abilities for Bayek, such as Overpower Fury, which "heals Bayek and removes any status ailments when he unleashes an adrenaline-charged Overpower attack".

Ubisoft also released some narrated gameplay footage for the upcoming DLC, showing off some of the new additions.

Curse of the Pharaohs will be available for $19.99 or as a part of the game's Season Pass.
