Assassin's Creed Origins The Curse of the Pharaohs DLC has a launch trailer

Due for release tomorrow, Curse of the Pharaohs jumps Bayek's story four years into the future, as our hero travels to Thebes in pursuit of a mysterious relic. For more on Assassin's Creed Origins, check out our previous coverage. Bayek's objective would be to hunt down key artifacts linked to each pharaoh in order to put them to rest. These include buffs to abilities like Dash Boost and Overpower Fury or new archery abilities like the option to infect Predator Bow kills with Flesh Decay, pierce shields with Hunter Bows, or even gradually refilling your tools and arrows while in the afterlife with Favor of Osiris. In all, the new skills require 15 Ability Points to unlock, so you'll want to keep an eye out for any glowing question marks on the map to help you earn them more quickly.

The expansion's launch trailer's worth a watch if you want to get hyped for the imminent release, complete with sinister music and a brief look at the big baddies that you'll be going up against. Bayek will also have to contend with undead pharaohs and huge monsters, such as the giant scorpion in the launch trailer below.
