Ubisoft has revealed what post-launch content players can expect for Assassin's Creed Origins - both for free and as part of the game's season pass. Kicks off 15 days after launch.

The Roman Centurion and Horus packs - These exclusive item packs will grant Season Pass holders a new outfit, weapons, shield, and mount when they become available in November of this year. The Bazaar, which is downloadable at launch, gives players daily quests for rewards.

Photo Mode - Capture the beauty of the Egyptian landscape, indulge your inner wildlife photographer, and discover interesting photos taken by other players. Assassin's Creed: Origins second story DLC will be available in March, 2018. This is rather self-explanatory because many games have this mode nowadays. Players fight endless waves of enemies in an arena.

Assassin's Creed: Origins has two major DLCs in the works - one of which is an undead-themed Egyptian mummy expansion, The Curse of the Pharaohs. The Hidden Ones also increases the level cap and is slated for release in January 2018. The Hidden Ones will take place years after Assassin's Creed Origins, continuing Bayek's story and further establishing the role of the Assassin's Brotherhood moving into the future. Fortunately, it seems that the game's boxes are only available to buy with in-game currency. Encounter famed Egyptian beasts such as Anubis warriors, Scorpios and more, all while investigating the curse that brought the dead Pharaohs back to the world of the living.
