Assassin's Creed Origins December update will bring a new difficulty level as well as enemy scaling. Two quests and the "last god of the god trio" will also join the game in December. Fresh item packs to be available in-game later.
Assassin's Creed Origins is getting updated in December. If you have been jonesing for some extra challenge in the stealth-stab-repeat game, I have some good news for you: the December update will bring the new Nightmare difficulty level. This means "the enemies will become more resilient to damages and more dangerous" says the announcement.
If that's not enough, the post also promises:
- Enemy scaling: by popular request, we will add the enemy scaling option. When this option is activated, the game automatically scale the lower level enemies to your level.
- Nightmare and First Civ pack items will be available in the Heka Chest.
On top af all that, two new quests will become available. One is a surprise and the other will introduce the Horde mode. "The event quest, Here Comes a New Challenger, will introduce you to Horde mode to satisfy your warrior longings."You'll be sent off to the Cyrene arena where you will have to show off your amazing s(kills) while dispatching "unlimited waves of foes". Level 32 or higher recommended.
Next up, we have the latest "Trial of the Gods". The "last god of the god trio" is the warrior goddess herself, Sekhmet. If you belong to the group that didn't get a chance to face off against Sekhmet's predecessors - Anubis and Sobek - fret not as you will be granted a chance to do just that when the Triad comes (back) in December.
In-game store will offer some new item packs in mid and late December: Gladiator Items Pack will be available on 12 December and Wacky Items Pack will be up for grabs on 26 December.
The Gladiator pack will contain "the Spaniard’s Armor, the Palladium shield, Hercules’ Gladius (sword), Labrys (heavy blade) and Neptune’s Grasp (spear)". The Wacky Items Pack, on the other hand, will feature a mount and four weapons. Not much else is known about the Wacky Items Pack except that it will "be a perfect fit for the bath Towel outfit" teases the post.
