In order to give it a bit more polish, Ubisoft has chosen to delay Assassin’s Creed: Origins‘ second expansion, The Curse of the Pharoahs. Don’t worry, though, as the delay will only last a week, meaning that the game’s next piece of major DLC will still release in March.
It was during a conversation with Gamespot where this delay was confirmed, with the reason being Ubisoft’s desire to “deliver the best experience possible to our players.” That’s respectable and as good a reason as any, because it’s better to wait for a polished experience than play a flawed and buggy experience.
The Curse of the Pharoahs will bring another new location to Assassin’s Creed: Origins when it releases next month, that being the realm of Aaru. An afterlife-inspired realm, wherein one can walk through the reeds and do battle against Egyptian Queen Nefertiti, it will offer a new story, additional gear and an increased level cap of 55.
Expect to be able to play this second expansion come March 13th. Also, take note of the fact that it’s expected to be preceded by a free bridging quest, which will debut on February 27th. Like those before it, Assassin’s Creed: Origins‘ The Curse of the Pharoahs DLC will be available as part of the game’s season pass, or separately for those who’d rather go that route.
