Travel to the Ancient city of Thebes in Assassin’s Creed Origins “The Curse of the Pharaohs” DLC

Ubisoft released the Assassin’s Creed Origins Curse of the Pharaohs DLC last week. This second piece of post-launch content continues Bayek’s journey and takes him to the ancient city of Thebes.

As part of the release of the Assassin’s Creed Origins Curse of the Pharaohs DLC, Ubisoft has provided us with a series of images. These images give us an in-game and real-world comparison of locations in the DLC.

With Assassin’s Creed Origins, Ubisoft has taken care to carefully recreate Ancient Egypt. The recently released and free add-on — Discovery Tour — lets players explore the recreation at their own pace.

The Assassin’s Creed Origins Curse of the Pharaohs DLC does not. However, the images provided by Ubisoft do show just how much effort has gone into creating this world.

These images show that Ubisoft has been dedicated in the effort of faithful recreating the world in Assassin’s Creed Origins Curse of the Pharaohs DLC.

While the locations are all based in reality, the new content that awaits players in the DLC is not. Bayek’s travels to Thebes are caused by a sickness plaguing the people. 

Players will be faced with ancient Pharaohs and mythical Egyptian creatures as they travel to the temples of Karnak and Luxor as well as the Valley of the Kings. 

A new level cap is introduced as part of the DLC which sees players able to reach level 55. All-new resources and crafting levels have been included too. Bayek will unlock new outfits, gear and weapons in the DLC, all of which are based on and revolve around Ancient Egyptian Mythology.

The Curse of the Pharaohs DLC is available as part of the Season Pass or can be purchased separately. 

Assassin’s Creed Origins is available for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
