"We know that a large number of community members have requested a New Game+ feature". Far too many game companies release half baked games and it seems as if Ubisoft agrees. Now players can look forward to the biggest addition yet as the developer has announced the game will receive its first major story expansion, titled The Hidden Ones, sometime this month. It did reveal that the level cap has been increased from 40 to 45. Season Pass owners will get this expansion for free, but it is not yet clear how much it will cost for those without Season Passes. Items from the Gladiator and Wacky packs, as well as the Nightmare and First Civilization packs will be added to the Heka chest items pool.
There are also players who are not quite ready to leave ancient Egypt just yet even though they have already finished the game, and they would like to have more reasons to hang around.
There's free stuff coming to Origins as well - a new quest to set the scene for The Hidden Ones' arrival, a Warden outfit from fellow Ubisoft game For Honor, and the return of two Trials of the Gods. You'll be able to fight Anubis from January 9-16, followed by Sobek from January 23-30.
Pierce County deputy fatally shot after responding to home invasion; manhunt underway
Daniel McCartney, 34, was chasing the suspect when shots were exchanged, fatally wounding the officer, authorities said. A police officer has died after being shot during a response to a burglary in Frederickson, Wash late last night.
Some New Game+ modes may allow players to carry over items or abilities from their initial playthroughs.
The Hidden Ones also launches this month. "Assassin's Creed: Origins", despite being a stealth action game primarily, has some of the heaviest RPG elements in the history of the franchise, and it would do well to have a New Game+ mode.
