Today, Ubisoft released the launch trailer for Assassin's Creed Origins: The Hidden Ones, which comes out tomorrow. While previous content has been limited to combat events and various costume packs, this download marks the game's first story expansion which focuses on the Roman occupation.
According to the publisher, this story-driven expansion builds upon the growth of the Assassins Brotherhood, taking players four years after the events of Assassin's Creed Origins. The Brotherhood is more established now but they have even bigger challenges to contend with. Bayek and the Brotherhood clash with the Roman army in an all-new region of the game known as Sinai. The base game dealt with topics like preserving the Ancient Egyptian way of life in a changing world, so expect The Hidden Ones to touch upon similar themes.
This expansion will increase the level cap from 40 to 45, allowing players to continue to upgrade and customize their character. Customers will also gain access to four new legendary weapons, a new outfit, two new mounts, multiple new weapons, and two new levels for all crafted gear. It seems as though the content is designed to keep players engaged over the long run.
The Hidden Ones will available to all season pass owners for free or can be purchased separately. Be sure to check out the expansion if you liked the base game.
