Assassin's Creed Origins: Curse of the Pharaohs is a great expansion that does a fantastic job of bringing ancient Egypt's spiritual side to life. Channelling the creativity of a clearly talented team, the DLC breaks the series' historical shackles and provides a memorable adventure packed with cool boss encounters. Curse of the Pharaohs is right up there with the best that Ubisoft's franchise has to offer.
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.
Bayek heads to Thebes to retrive another lost artifact, only to find himself taking a trip into the afterlife. The base map for this expansion seems about as big as the Hidden Ones expansion, but the additional afterlife regions add scale and scope to this DLC. The regions also untether Ubisoft's artists from reality, allowing them to come up with some grand vistas as a result. Curse of the Pharaohs is what Origins needed and stands as one of the better expansions for an Assassin's Creed game.
