Ubi adds: "Players will also be able to acquire new outfits and gear, including rare and legendary weapons-all themed around classic Egyptian mythology".
Ubisoft also said that the DLC would take place four years after the events of the main game with Bayek journeying to they Thebes region to investigate an ancient curse. Instead of the mortal and deceitful Order of the Ancients, he finds undead pharaohs materializing in the streets and slaughtering civilians. The expansion focuses on Egyptian mythology, pitting players against famous pharaohs and Egyptian beasts, as they uncover the cause of the curse that has brought certain dead rulers back to life. "And as he works to quell the spirits of each restless pharaoh, Bayek finds his way into their individual afterlives, which exist as big, self-contained open worlds connected to portals in their tombs".
Curse of the Pharaohs will include a slew of new features and content including new crafting levels, resources, and an increased level cap of 55. The new skills will require 15 ability points to fully unlock.
