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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Yes, 4 Duat worlds have one viewpoint each.

Animus Control Panel
For the first time in an Assassin’s Creed game, players will be able to tweak some game parameters to create their own game experience, thanks to the Animus Control Panel for PC.

The Animus Control Panel will be deployed on PC later this month. Ever fancied having three animal companions? The Animus Control Panel is your go-to.

  • 75 parameters within 11 categories
  • Three pre-created presets available
  • Presets created by players can be shared on a dedicated forum
  • The Animus Control Panel is embedded in Uplay Library’s page
