Assassin’s Creed Origins: The Curse of the Pharaohs is the second expansion to Assassin’s Creed Origins developed by the creators of the base game – Ubisoft Montreal. Assassin’s Creed Origins: The Curse of the Pharaohs revolves around a more complex representation of the Egyptian mythology. The story featured in this DLC focuses on the titular curse, which has brought one of the pharaohs back from the world of the dead and has unleashed legendary beasts.

The Curse of the Pharaohs is a big step outside of what we’re used to seeing from Assassin’s Creed Origins, and it pulls its whimsically mystical journey off well. Combat continues to be fun and challenging, and this time your biggest foes are fleshed out and varied enough to turn what could’ve easily been a monotonous series of fights into a highlight. Along with the side activities of hunting down stolen relics and exploring desecrated tombs, this surreal DLC goes above and beyond expectations.
Here’s hoping Ubisoft fixes these with patches soon. That said, it becomes easier to accept these concessions in trade for what is an expansion that is packed with content. It’s different and vibrant and expands Origins’ ancient Egypt setting in unique ways, and it’s got anywhere from ten to twenty hours’ worth of content. The Curse of the Pharaohs is, without a doubt, one of the best things to have come out of Ubisoft in the last couple of years.
Curse of the Pharaohs is a marvelous DLC that builds upon what makes Assassin’s Creed Origins great and takes it one step further into the realm of the fantastic. With new gear, weapons, upgrades, and abilities to unlock, Bayek has his work cut out for him taking on the animated dead. The story is unique and interesting, but the characters you encounter feel flat, and having to return to them to ask for information they withheld feels like an excuse to drag out the gameplay.
