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.
A day ahead of the expansion's launch on March 13, 2018, Ubisoft released a thrilling launch trailer which gives you a taste of the action. Fighting these beings is difficult to say the least and requires a considerable amount of skill.
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.
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 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.
