Big Updates Headed to Assassin’s Creed Origins This Month, Title Update and First Major Expansion

Assassin’s Creed Origins is set to get some big updates this month, and Ubisoft has laid out the roadmap that players can expect for the remainder of January. First up is a title update that will bring a new quest to celebrate Origins‘ first expansion. Along with that, the first expansion, called The Hidden Ones, will bring a major new story component to the game. The Hidden Ones is included as part of the season pass or as a purchase for those who did not get the pass.

We hope you enjoyed the festive season and best wishes for 2018 from the entire Assassin’s Creed team! Without further ado, here’s what’s in store for Assassin’s Creed Origins in January.

A new title update will be released in January to add more content to the game. Here’s what you can look forward to:

The Hidden Ones

January marks the arrival of the first major expansion, The Hidden Ones. In this expansion, Bayek and the Assassins will clash with the Romans, who occupy an all-new region in the game.

Assassin’s Creed Origins is a massive game that was very well received, and this shows Ubisoft’s intentions to make the game even bigger. Here’s a bit from our review:

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.

Are you excited for the January Assassin’s Creed Origins update?
