The Assassin's Creed Origins: The Curse of the Pharaohs expansion adds the long-awaited supernatural twist to gameplay. Challenging undead rulers appear randomly and you have to take them down. This not only gives you new missions, but it also results in even better rewards.

According to Ubisoft, The Curse of the Pharaohs offers gamers a completely new quest to delve into as they travel to Thebes to investigate an ancient curse that is plaguing the land. The expansion focuses on Egyptian mythology, pitting players against famous pharaohs and Egyptian beasts, as they uncover the cause of the curse that has brought certain dead rulers back to life. Each expansion increases the level cap and this one is no different. The Hidden Ones first raised the cap to 45 while The Curse of the Pharaohs increases it to 55. This means that you can keep on leveling up and finding better gear. The publisher says that the second expansion will launch on March 13, 2018.

Assassin's Creed Origins takes place in Ancient Egypt, a land of majesty and intrigue, but one which is disappearing in a ruthless fight for power. You play as a Bayek, the first Assassin, who must unveil dark secrets and forgotten myths as you go back to the one founding moment: the origins of the Assassin's Brotherhood.

Assassin's Creed Origins launched on October 27, 2017 on Xbox One, Windows PC, and PlayStation 4. Be sure to check it out at retailers if you like third-person adventures. The game supports 4K resolution on Xbox One X and looks incredible due to its upgraded textures.
