Ubisoft has detailed some of the content coming to Assassin’s Creed: Origins later this month, and fans will be relieved to know that the studio is getting ready to heavily support this iteration of Assassin’s Creed.
According to the company, the game will receive an extensive amount of post-launch support in both paid and free forms. The first patch, which drops sometime in November but has no release date, will unlock the enhancements for the upcoming Xbox One X and add HDR support on all platforms that support it. The patch will also include other fixes and stability improvements.
Along with the patch, Trials of the Gods – an extra mode that lets you fight ancient Egyptian gods – will get its first major boss on November 7. Anubis, the protector of the afterlife in Egyptian mythology, will be dropped into the game, and defeating him will net you some legendary loot. More information regarding the Trials of the Gods and future post-launch content will be revealed in the coming weeks.

Assassin’s Creed Origins blew my expectations away in so many areas, but there’s still something missing that made the likes of Assassin’s Creed II and Brotherhood so special. However, this is most definitely the best title since then, and one that I’ll be jumping back into very soon. The new combat system makes for some incredibly satisfying moments, while the design of the world is only matched by the likes of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Ubisoft Montreal can be proud knowing that they’ve delivered a level of AAA-production that likely won’t be seen again until Cyberpunk 2077 rolls around, but there’s just that last leap of faith that needs to be made to once again deliver a generation defining game.
Assassin’s Creed: Origins is available now.
