This expansion will increase the level cap to 45, add four new Legendary weapons, a new outfit, two new mounts and multiple new weapons.

It will also be available for purchase separately for $19.99 on Uplay and Steam for Windows PC on February 20, 2018.
DLC 2 - The Curse of the Pharaohs focuses on Egyptian mythology, pitting players against famous pharaohs and Egyptian beasts as they investigate the cause of the curse that has brought the dead pharaohs back to life. This new piece of content will increase the level cap to 55 and give players access to new outfits and gear, including rare and legendary weapons, all themed around classic Egyptian mythology. The Curse of the Pharaohs DLC will be available for season pass owners or can be purchased separately for $19.99 on March 6, 2018.
Assassin’s Creed Origins was released last year on PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
