Assassin’s Creed Origins will receive two major expansions along with a number of smaller updates after its release on Oct. 27. This information comes from the Assassin’s Creed Origins season pass trailer, which can be viewed above.

The big expansions, The Hidden Ones and The Curse of the Pharaohs, are both story-driven experiences that will star Origins protagonist Bayek. Set years after the main campaign, The Hidden Ones will introduce the Roman empire and a new, unannounced, location. The Hidden Ones will also raise the level cap for Origins, allowing players to continue making character progress. The Hidden Ones DLC will release in January.

The second DLC, The Curse of the Pharaohs, will focus heavily on Egyptian mythology and take a more supernatural turn than the rest of Origins. Players will travel to a new and mystical realm to do battle against undead pharaohs, mummies, Anubis warriors and more. The Curse of the Pharaohs is set to release in March.

Also confirmed in the season pass trailer are two exclusive add-on packs that introduce a new outfit, weapons, a shield and a new mount. Players with the season pass will also receive 500 Helix credits and the rare Calamity Blade weapon.

If you don’t want to get a season pass, there are still some free updates to get excited about. Along with the previously mentioned Photo Mode and Discovery Tour, there will also be a Horde Mode coming for free in early 2018, a wandering merchant who gives daily quests and The Trials of the Gods. This last mode is a series of boss battles against Egyptian gods that will be available 15 days after the launch of Origins.

The season pass for Assassin’s Creed Origins comes bundled in the Gold Edition, Gold Steelbook edition, Dawn of the Creed collector’s edition and Dawn of the Creed Legendary edition of the game. It can also be purchased separately for $40. It is not included in the Deluxe edition or God’s collector's edition.
