I’m still not sure how the upcoming DLC will factor into the canon of the series, as it’s far and away one of the weirdest pieces of content the series has released. Assassin’s Creed III had the Tyranny of King Washington, which was what the Apple of Eden revealed would happen if President Washington took control of the Piece of Eden, luckily, Connor sunk it in the Atlantic Ocean.
With this, I can only guess an artifact is wreaking havoc and whatever we’re seeing is a byproduct of that. Curse of the Pharaohs takes place in the Valley of the Dead, a new area of the already massive map in Assassin’s Creed Origins.
Curse of the Pharaohs is part of the Season Pass for Assassin’s Creed Origins and will raise the level cap from 45 to 55, featuring new weapons and tombs to explore and will be available tomorrow. You can also purchase the content separately.
