Assassin's Creed Origins' Second DLC Is Launching Tomorrow

Due for release tomorrow, Curse of the Pharaohs jumps Bayek's story four years into the future, as our hero travels to Thebes in pursuit of a mysterious relic. Instead of the mortal and deceitful Order of the Ancients, he finds undead pharaohs materializing in the streets and slaughtering civilians. No trip to Thebes would be complete without dropping by the impressive Temple of Karnak or the Valley of the Kings and that's where players will be heading. New enemies include anubis warriors and giant scorpions. You will now, because ba are everywhere in the afterlife, and you can even hunt them if you're feeling mean. Once there, he discovers that dead Pharaohs have returned to haunt the living. When you get a heads-up that one is loose in the world, you'll have a brief window of time in which to track them down and temporarily send them back where they came from.

In addition to increasing the level cap to 55, seven new abilities are also available to be unlocked.

In the meantime, you can check out some of the gameplay ahead of tomorrow's launch. Ubi adds: "Players will also be able to acquire new outfits and gear, including rare and legendary weapons-all themed around classic Egyptian mythology".

If you're fond of sand dunes and salty air, interactive history lessons and non-combative fare, you might fancy Assassin's Creed Origins' Discovery Mode.
