The Curse of the Pharaohs is the second of Assassin’s Creed Origin’s expansions, and it’s out now. It’s big, and beautiful, and already a lot more fun than the The Hidden Ones. We’ll have more to say on it once we’ve survived a few more battles against Murderous Undead Pharoahs.

Loving it so far, that first fight was a bitch (playing it on Hard). Hidden Ones was okay but kind of more of the same, at least I got two cool mounts from it. The Afterlife zones in the new DLC are freaking beautiful and look great on 4K, I have to turn it down a notch though because my PC is showing its age.
