[CORRECTION: Curse of the Pharaohs DLC has been pushed back from March 6 to March 13.]

Assassin's Creed Origins: Curse of the Pharaohs DLC is less than two three weeks away, launching March 6 March 13 as part of the season pass.

The Hidden Ones DLC raised the level cap from 40 to 45. This upcoming Curse of the Pharaohs DLC raises it from 45 to 55. With level-based enemies, this means you do not want to jump into Curse of the Pharoahs without leveling up first by completing vanilla Origins [GN score: 8 out of 10] and then The Hidden Ones. Otherwise, if you aren't leveled up, you'll just be seeing a bunch of unbeatable enemies with skulls over their heads, indicating that you've wandered into the wrong part of Egypt, my friend. There are new fighting skills to unlock, and whichever developer is playing in this video knows how to wreck shop with them. They're making undead pharaohs look like chumps; nothing more than a nuisance for you to sweep aside on your way to the bathhouse. 

Curse of the Pharaohs unlocks the city of Thebes which stands near the Valley of the Kings. Valley of the Kings is where enormous tombs were excavated from the rock for 16th to 11th century BC Egyptian rulers and nobles. Focusing on Egyptian mythology, you'll face off against undead resurrected rulers of Egypt, like Nefertiti, traveling into their individual afterlives—which are, in and of themselves, maps connected with portals to their tombs. The afterlife operates by its own rules. So be prepared for human-faced birds, ships sailing through golden fields of grain, and Fallout-sized scorpions.

Assassin's Creed Origins: Curse of the Pharaohs DLC launches March 6 March 13 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
