The second DLC expansion for Assassin’s Creed Origins, The Curse of the Pharaohs, releases tomorrow, March 13. It’s available separately for $19.99 or as part of the $39.99 season pass. Watch the new launch trailer above.

The Curse of the Pharaohs presents a new story set four years after the events of Assassin’s Creed Origins. Bayek’s journey brings him to the ancient city of Thebes, the mystical Valley of the Kings, and even the Egyptian underworld. New enemies include anubis warriors and giant scorpions.

The undead Pharaohs periodically appear as powerful mini-bosses for a limited time, and represent a challenge for high level players. Then you’ll have to face them in the underworld, where they become even stronger.

To combat these new threats, the level cap will be raised to 55, and seven new abilities have been added, including four new archery skills. The Favor of Osiris lets you hunt in the afterlife longer by gradually refilling Bayek’s tools and arrows. Players can also acquire new outfits and gear themed around classic Egyptian mythology.

The Curse of the Pharaohs DLC launches tomorrow for $19.99. The season pass includes the first released DLC, The Hidden Ones, as well as two customization packs. Assassin’s Creed Origins is rated M for Mature.
