Earlier today, Ubisoft announced that the second major DLC for Assassin's Creed Origins, Curse of the Pharaohs, will be releasing worldwide tomorrow.

Set four years after the main campaign, Curse of the Pharaohs opens with Bayek paying a visit to Thebes, the legendary Egyptian City of the Living, as he investigates a mysterious plague that has befallen the region.

The 4K trailer for the new DLC can be seen above, a trailer that's just under two minutes and has everything from ancient relics to undead enemies.

To combat these new threats, the level cap will be raised to 55, and seven new abilities have been added, including four new archery skills.

New achievements/trophies will also be available for those with the DLC with six new challenges being added to the list. The Pharaoh's Curse, as the locals call it, likely has something to do with all the grave robbers treating the Valley of the Kings like a strip mine for antiquities, forcing Bayek to hunt down key artifacts linked to each pharaoh in order to put them to rest.

If you're fond of sand dunes and salty air, interactive history lessons and non-combative fare, you might fancy Assassin's Creed Origins' Discovery Mode. Additionally, the new gear, outfits, and weapons will all be inspired by classic Egyptian mythology. Season pass owners will be able to download the DLC automatically while those without the pass can purchase it for $19.99.
