    I have just over 70 hours and 98% completion. I probably won't be going for 100%, because the chariot races and gladiator stuff don't interest me.

    Patch 1.21 is out:




    My update is 8.93 GB not 2.3 GB as has been circulated. Same goes for other people. Just a heads up.

    Seems odd that the patch size is really close to the DLC size (~9GB).

    The cracked version of the game has a UPlay store/rewards unlocker... Pirates get all the goodies. :/

    Just completed everything for the DLC today. I thought it was pretty good but I still hate the whole split up between Bayek & Amunet (formerly Aya) for the sake of the Order (BS I say).

    Actually not.


    This is lame of course but all you really have to do is find a way to give yourself lots of coin (like a trainer) and hit the "blue camel vendor" treasure chest that he has there. 3000 a pop. Hit it as much as you want. Rinse and repeat. Unlock everything over time basically.

    Playing a female would make it less repetitive? :p

    Just me or does the Witcher look better? I am running 1080p but at pretty near max settings. I think that the lighting and color is a bit weak or washed.

    Witcher 3 is the first game I ever had to use ReShade to de-saturate so AC:O is definitely more washed out.

    Is there a mod or something to scale enemy levels DOWN to the player level?

    Good on Ubisoft for adding the Tour of Egypt expansion for free. Very cool (although covering all the statue's boobs up I kind of lame)

    Looking forward to playing this new DLC tonight. After that, I might make one round through NG+ after I finish up other games.

    Oh for anyone interested I just saw there will be a Twitch stream today, 3/14, at 1pm EST and if you watch a bit, you can get a free in-game item - https://assassinscreed.ubisoft.com/game/en-us/news/152-319982-16/assassins-creed®-origins-community-stream-twitch-drop - If you follow that link and use the Ubi widget to connect your Ubi account to Twitch prior to the stream, if you watch it for about 20 minutes, you'll automatically be awarded a free AC:O in-game item (it seems to be a bow this time). Guess this is something that Ubi may be starting for other titles as well.

    If only that stream wasn't at 3am for me. I always work towards free in-game loot for Ubisoft games but this time is a no go.

    Remembering why I stopped playing. FedEx go fetch side quests. And the ai is terrible. Can't believe I can sneak next to someone from the side (don't even have to be behind) and assassinate.

    My problem is that the game got extremely repetitive. Every camp or objective was the same.

    Ended up getting the season pass for this until Far Cry 5 goes on-sale. Heard good things about the 2nd DLC.

    More than once I was like "Ok that must be the end" and then my eyes bugged wide open and I found out otherwise... in a big way.

    This is a lot of content. It's really impressive.

    I just ran around and unlocked every viewpoint in the game. I have 58 vanilla (that's 100%), 4 in Hidden Ones, and 12 in Curse of the Pharaoh. Which means I have 74 out of 78.

    Are there 4 hidden viewpoints in the DLC somewhere? I know there's a Duat world in the 2nd DLC, are there towers in there?

    Just beat everything with both DLC included but the Hippodrome. Was a good run at 111 hrs & I hope that the next AC game runs with the improvements they've worked on.
