Assassin's Creed: Origins Title Update Accompanies First Expansion

This month, Ubisoft is adding content to Assassin's Creed: Origins alongside its first expansion, The Hidden Ones.

The new update adds a mission introducting The Hidden Ones expansion, an update to the Heka chests that adds Nightmare, First Civilization, Gladiator, and Wacky packs to their item pool, and adds an option to sell clothes you don't want to the weaver.

The Hidden Ones expansion itself adds a new region to the game that gives a place for Bayek and his assassins to clash with the Romans across a series of character quests. It also increases the level cap from 40 to 45, so you have five more chances to see Bayek explode into light in the middle of conversations with people.
