Assassins Creed Origins will get a New Game Plus mode soon, Ubisoft has announced. Community Manager Dominik Voigt responded to a fan question on Reddit by saying, "New Game Plus is coming. We'll have more information to share soon."

Little else is known about the mode as yet, though New Game Plus modes in other games typically offer a chance to replay the campaign with a number of modifiers active, including increased difficulty for example. There's also no indication of a timeframe as to when we can expect the mode to launch.

The news comes just days after Assassin's Creed Origins' latest DLC pack, The Hidden Ones, launched for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The Hidden Ones is a story-driven expansion that sheds more light on the rise of the Assassin Brotherhood. It is set four years after the events of the main game and takes players to the new Sinai Peninsula region, where they'll have to "investigate a clash between a rebel faction and occupying Roman forces."

Another added content pack, the Discovery Tour, is coming to the game on February 20. The mode turns off combat and story quests, allowing you to simply explore and learn about the game's version of ancient Egypt at your leisure.

The new content adds to what was an already enjoyable experience. Our critic, Alessandro Fillari, said Origins' world feels "fresh and exciting to explore" and that the game "feels like the first step in the start of a new journey." He awarded the game a 7/10; for more, check out our full Assassin's Creed Origins review.
