Assassin's Creed Origins: Curse of the Pharaohs Launch Trailer Is Suitably Sinister

In this new expansion players will take on an all-new storyline set four years after the events of Assassin's Creed Origins. Instead of the mortal and deceitful Order of the Ancients, he finds undead pharaohs materializing in the streets and slaughtering civilians. Zombies in Assassin's Creed. The add-on sees protagonist Bayek travel to a whole new region where he's tasked with bringing down undead monstrosities.

Shadows of the Pharaohs mark the biggest threat from the otherside-who first appear within a limited-time window; and by way of more powerful reincarnations thereafter.

With a level cap boosted to 55, Bayek also has new crafting levels - with appropriate resources at his disposable - and new abilities. You can view the launch trailer below.


What do you think about the launch trailer for "The Curse of the Pharaohs" expansion? In all, the new skills require 15 Ability Points to unlock, so you'll want to keep an eye out for any glowing question marks on the map to help you earn them more quickly.

Assassin's Creed Origins takes place in Ancient Egypt, a land of majesty and intrigue, but one which is disappearing in a ruthless fight for power. In the vid, you'll get a concise look at the all-new story, in which Bayek must voyage to the old capital of Thebes to research a shocking condemnation that has covered the locale.
