Assassin's Creed Origins - Release Date, System Requirements And DLCs

Assassin’s Creed Origins is taking us back to where it all began, with the birth of the Creed in Ancient Egypt. As well as letting us slide down pyramids, this long-awaited prequel revamps the series mechanics, adding in RPG-style progression, reworked combat, and even more. If you’re getting ready to explore the blue waters and golden sands of its ancient world, hitch up your camel and read on for Assassin’s Creed Origin’s PC release date, system requirements, DLCs, and pre-order bonuses.

Assassin’s Creed Origin’s PC release date

It’s no massive surprise that a new Assassin’s Creed game would launch towards the end of the year, in direct competition with some of the industry’s biggest hitters. Assassin’s Creed Origins is no different and will be diving (releasing) straight into a hay bale (your PC) on October 27.

Assassin’s Creed Origins pre-order

If you pre-order Assassin’s Creed Origins on PC at Green Man Gaming you will get access to an additional mission called The Secrets of the Pyramids. In it, you will unearth one of Egypt’s greatest mysteries, uncovering the knowledge of the construction of the first pyramids.

Assassin’s Creed Origins DLC

If you purchase the Season Pass or the Gold Edition of Assassin’s Creed Origins for PC, you will get access to a host of DLC. As soon as you start the game, you will be gifted with 500 Helix Credits and the Calamity Blade, and exclusive rare weapon. Then, in November, you will get a new outfit, weapon, shield, and mount.

The first proper chunk of DLC will become available in January 2018, and the second will release in March 2018. Here are the details on what’s included:

The Hidden Ones (DLC 1)

  • This expansion takes place years after the events of Assassin’s Creed Origins in a new region occupied by a Roman force. Bayek and the new Assassins will clash with the Romans as the Brotherhood continues to grow, and players will have a new level cap. Slated for release in January 2018.

The Curse of the Pharaohs (DLC 2)

  • The second expansion focuses on Egyptian mythology, pitting players against undead pharaohs and famed Egyptian monsters. Bayek will need to explore a mystical new realm and discover the root of the curse that has brought these creatures to life. This expansion will also raise the level cap again and introduce new skills for Bayek. Scheduled for a March 2018 launch.
