The announcement of these new features has no doubt created a new surge of excitement for the fans and with only 2 weeks to go until it is released on October 27, the hype is certainly intensifying with each and every day.
The Season Pass for the game will add about two story-driven expansion that builds upon the growth of the Brotherhood and focusing on the Egyptian mythology. Both those with a season pass and those without will be getting free content post-launch, with two DLC packs for the game coming early next year.
The Hidden Ones (DLC 1) - This expansion takes place years after the events of Assassin's Creed Origins in a new region occupied by a Roman force. The first expansion will be released in January 2018. But only players who are willing to spend more can access the paid contents. This expansion will extend the level cap, allowing players to keep on making their character progress. But they're also dipping back into their reserve of family-friendly properties and will also launch new versions of Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune in November. This DLC is coming out later, in March 2018.
The Roman Centurion and Horus Packs are two exclusive add-on packs that bring a new outfit, weapons, mount, and shield. Season pass holders get 500 Helix credits and an exclusive rare weapon at launch. The Nomad's Bazaar and Photo Mode will be in the game from launch but you'll have plenty of time to prepare for the horde mode which isn't rushing in your direction with deadly weaponry until 2018.
The Trial of the Gods - Face off against the Egyptian gods in boss battles during special timed events, and receive valuable rewards for victory.
Photo Mode: Players will be able to capture and share the beauty of the Egyptian landscape and indulge their inner wildlife photographer while discovering in-game pictures taken by other players.
Far Cry 5 isn't out until early 2018, but you will be able to play it later this month on the PS4 Pro console at Armageddon. The Horde Mode is set in a Gladiator Arena where players can challenge themselves and fight endless waves of enemies.
The Origins Gold Edition and Steelbook Edition also contain the Season Pass, but for no extra cost. The Photo Mode allows players to capture wonderful pictures and landscapes around their characters.
