Assassin’s Creed Origins: Curse of the Pharaohs gets an action-packed launch trailer


Itching to go back to Assassin’s Creed Origins after clearing the main game? No interest in exploring the game through a more historic lens? You’re in luck, as you can try out the latest DLC offering Curse of the Pharaohs, starting tomorrow. There’s a new launch trailer showing off some of what you’ll see in the expansion, which takes you four years into the future with hero Bayek as he makes his way to Thebes. 

As Bayek searches for a special relic, he’ll be forced to fight undead pharaohs — read, zombies — and take on Anubis warriors, scorpions, and additional creepy-crawlies that probably aren’t that fun to be around. It’s Bayek’s job to figure out what’s bringing all these things back to life, so that’s on you to help decipher as you play through the new chapter that focuses on Egyptian mythology. The game’s level cap will be increased and new abilities will be available to learn as part of the second DLC drop for Assassin’s Creed Origins

There’s a good amount of this shown off in the launch trailer, making this March release look like a pretty spicy one, especially if you’re in the mood to fight undead pharaohs. And really, who wouldn’t be?
