First Assassin's Creed: Origins DLC due out this month

Over on Assassin's Creed's official website, Ubisoft detailed what players can expect from Origins in January starting with a title update.

Here, players will get stuck into a fresh adventure set in new Roman-occupied territory, which the French publishing giant claims will offer a "vast" new story.

Ubisoft says that all players will receive a free quest that ties in with The Hidden One expansion. If you recall when Ubisoft announced its 2018 content plan previous year, The Hidden Ones features Bayek face off against the invading Romans who have taken over an entirely new region in the game.

The game's daily free Heka chest will soon be able to reward items from the latest paid-for cosmetic DLC sets, too - that's the the Nightmare, First Civilisation, Gladiator and Wacky packs. This update will also increase the game's level cap from 40 to 45. "We are now investigating the possibility of implementing this option in a future title update". The Hidden Ones will be available at no additional cost to Season Pass owners. It yet to reveal the precise release date as well.

Though New Game+ mode is not guaranteed to be added just yet, players can still look forward to some other notable pieces of content that will arrive this year, including the expansion named "The Hidden Ones" that is due out later this month as well as "The Curse of the Pharaohs", which is expected to be released in March. This month also sees the return of the mighty Anubis and Sobek, so if you missed (or failed) beating them first time around, you can tackle them again with Anubis appearing between January 9-16 and Sobek from January 23-30. The company noted these delays are courtesy of the development of Assassin's Creed Origins. Finally, the Warden's Oath outfit hits the Ubisoft Club also on January 30.
