The truth is, there’s not much to The Hidden Ones. It’s just more Assassin’s Creed Origins. Is that a bad thing? Considering that it adds a substantial amount of “more”, and that Assassin’s Creed Origins was already a fantastic game to start with, the answer to that is no. In fact, it’s a great thing. If you enjoyed the base game and at any time said “I want to spend more time in Egypt with Bayek”, then you’ll enjoy this expansion.

The Hidden Ones doubles down on everything that made Assassin's Creed Origins an excellent experience, providing an expansion that you will love if you enjoyed the base game.

Assassin’s Creed Origins: The Hidden Ones is probably exactly like you expect – it offers more of everything you liked about the base game, but it won’t surprise you or offer anything revolutionary (that will apparently come with the next DLC, The Curse of the Pharaohs, in March). For $9.99 US, you get 2-3 hours of new main quest to play through, and maybe another 5 or 6 hours of side quests and diversions.

Assassin's Creed Origins' first downloadable content, The Hidden Ones, takes players to a brand-new region and continues Bayek's story. If you were expecting something vastly new and different from this DLC, temper your expectations, as The Hidden Ones is just more of the same. More fortresses, more targets to kill, more Stone Circles, more treasure, and more levels. It's good enough for the price, but it lacks something new to make it really great.

Assassin's Creed Origins: The Hidden Ones is a rock solid expansion to a great game. It doesn't try to surprise or break the mould, but that's fine when the core gameplay remains this strong. For fans of Origins this is a no-brainer -- the story successfully builds upon the existing narrative, and there are some really enjoyable missions to sink your hidden blade into.

A lot of what The Hidden Ones gets right is its ability to take familiar concepts from Assassin’s Creed Origins and make them feel new again by means of a new purpose, a new story, and a new creed. A new direction to the story that makes Bayek more relatable, high-level combat keeps quests challenging even when you’re fully leveled up, and a more rewarding pace of loot provide an opportunity to feel something new without straying too far from what I loved about Origins in the first place.

Assassin's Creed Origins: The Hidden Ones it the ultimate example of "more of the same." Honestly, the core gameplay is as good as the full game and, in places, it's even better, with some real highlights.

It wasn’t all good though, since it brought in new glitches. While running around climbing up mountains, as you do, I found a few glitches. My favourite was when the mountain looked like it was eating Bayek. Another one, I slid through a small gap and got stuck in the middle of a building until I moved enough and managed to get free.

At the end of the day, The Hidden Ones provides us with a nice continuation of the main story, one that will appeal to those fans who felt like there wasn't enough focus on the origins of the brotherhood in the main game. It's largely a case of more of the same content, and the environments, while striking, are a bit mundane compared to some of the spectacular vistas seen in the main game. Still, it's good value and if you're looking to spend more time with one of the best games of 2017 you should definitely look into The Hidden Ones.

Tan bello y enigmático como el Egipto del juego base, el Sinaí presenta una mayor verticalidad que cambia en cierta medida la forma de abordar las distintas incursiones en territorio enemigo. Es cierto que no encontraremos ninguna mecánica nueva que revolucione la experiencia de juego de este nuevo género que ha adoptado Assassin's Creed, pero con simplemente adaptar la satisfacción del juego original a una escala menos, nos damos más que satisfechos.

Même avec son petit prix, il reste difficile de conseiller l'achat de ce premier DLC d'Assassin's Creed Origins. Redondant sur le fond et sur la forme, surtout dans ses premières heures, The Hidden Ones se contente de décliner des mécaniques suffisamment exploitées dans l'aventure principale sans apporter de véritables nouveautés, hormis ses superbes décors.

Ceux qu'on ne voit pas est grosso modo une sorte de mini version d'Origins avec son mini-open world inédit, sa poignée de missions et toutes ses petites activités annexes qui invitent les exploratrices et explorateurs à flâner çà et là. Au regard de son petit prix, il n'y a clairement pas escroquerie. En revanche, on regrette l'absence totale de prise de risque et de nouveauté.

The Hidden Ones pèche par son caractère expéditif, qui ne laisse pas le temps à son scénario et aux personnages qui y figurent de prendre de l'épaisseur, là où nous aurions aimé, vu le postulat de départ, assister à une intrigue riche en révélations. D'une durée de vie de 7/8 heures si vous voulez tout faire, tout voir, le DLC ne propose rien de fondamentalement neuf, récite avec rigueur une recette déjà éprouvée dans le jeu de base et minimise la prise de risque.

De vraag of je de Assassin’s Creed Origins Hidden Ones DLC moet aanschaffen komt voornamelijk neer op de vraag of je van Assassin’s Creed Origins hebt genoten en graag het verhaal verder wilt spelen. Er is immers weinig veranderd ten opzichte van de hoofdgame en met een verhaal van negen tot tien uur haal je genoeg waarde uit de aankoopprijs van tien euro. Wij zijn in ieder geval benieuwd naar de tweede DLC, The Curse of the Pharaohs, die in maart het daglicht zal zien.

Ukończyłem Assassin’s Creed: Origins dwa razy na dwóch różnych platformach, przy czym za drugim razem grę wymaksowałem na 100%. Jestem fanem serii od samego początku i niezależnie od jej aktualnego poziomu maksuję wszystkie tytuły bez wyjątku. Nie grałem raptem w kilka spin-offów i podobnie jak większość fanów, uważam, że przed Origins cykl wyraźnie obniżył loty.
