Ubisoft have released a patch for Assassin's Creed Origins. The patch adds a new quest and some options for selling your outfits back to to the Weaver shops. Support for the upcoming The Hidden Ones DLC has also been added.

Last week's article on the subject of Assassin's Creed Origins prophesied about the arrival of a new patch and now it's here. The 3GB patch brought support for the upcoming DLC and a bunch of other stuff. 

The quest that'll act as an introduction for the Hidden Ones DLC has been added. Incoming Threat will probably have you run around the game's Roman territories, and Bayek will have a bunch of fresh blood to spill. Inconspicuously.

The loot pool of the Heka Chests has been updated to contain all the latest Store items from the Nightmare, First Civilization, Gladiator, Wacky, and Almighty packs.

The Hidden Ones is the first DLC Assassins Creed Origins will get this year. It will boast a new story and bump the level cap up to 45. The DLC is a part of the game's season pass. You can also buy it à la carte, or not at all.

The latest update has enabled the option to sell your outfits back to the Weaver shops. The bug that caused issues and prevented the player from climbing and fighting while in the quest "The Final Weighing" has been removed and the difficulty of Hippodrome races has been reduced. Yaay, horses.

Time for some rumours. We know that The Hidden Ones will be dropping this month, but Ubisoft didn't say exactly when. So, naturally, people start snooping around and looking for stuff. Apparently, if you fire up the game's client on Xbox One the DLC's release date reads 23 January. That's next Tuesday, so the wait to find out if this is true won't be that long.
