See Assassin’s Creed Origins’ first DLC The Hidden Ones in action


Assassin’s Creed Origins is getting its first downloadable content drop on Jan. 23 in the form of The Hidden Ones, and there’s a new trailer celebrating its impending release.

It looks just as gritty as you probably expected, and Bayek is in rare form. If you enjoyed playing through the main game, there’s a lot more here to see. 

The Hidden Ones is a mission that takes place four years after the ending of Origins, which expands upon the Brotherhood and its burgeoning growth, stopped in its tracks by Roman forces in the Sinai region.

You’ll get things started with a free quest to all players called “Incoming Threat” that lines this new plot thread out nicely. It’s meant to act as an introduction to the DLC that even players who don’t decide to purchase can enjoy. 

The Hidden Ones will include the entirety of the Sinai region to explore, a new level cap of 45, four new legendary weapons, two new mounts, a new costume, and several other weapons that you can seek out in-game as well.

That should round out your experience with the first DLC, but there’s still more to come later in March, when The Curse of the Pharaohs releases. Bayek will have to face off against some bizarre, mythical creatures in that release, so stay sharp and stay ready. 

If you’ve been hankering for more Assassin’s Creed Origins, The Hidden Ones should whet your whistle quite nicely when it releases on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC tomorrow.
