A lot of what The Hidden Ones gets right is its ability to take familiar concepts from Assassin's Creed Origins and make them feel new again by means of a new purpose, a new story, and a new creed. A new direction to the story that makes Bayek more relatable, high-level combat keeps quests challenging even when you're fully leveled up, and a more rewarding pace of loot provide an opportunity to feel something new without straying too far from what I loved about Origins in the first place.

Assassin's Creed Origins' first downloadable content, The Hidden Ones, takes players to a brand-new region and continues Bayek's story. If you were expecting something vastly new and different from this DLC, temper your expectations, as The Hidden Ones is just more of the same. More fortresses, more targets to kill, more Stone Circles, more treasure, and more levels. It's good enough for the price, but it lacks something new to make it really great.

It's more Assassin's Creed Origins, almost to a fault. It's an already-big game getting a little bigger. But it's worth seeing through because it eventually makes one of the more salient points in all of Assassin's Creed. The title's fitting considering how the poignancy and moral nuance stays hidden until the end.

No big news for Egypt. This DLC doesn't offer any new mechanics or gameplay surprises. Anyway, the story and cutscenes are good enough to make us admire Bayek even more.

If you liked Assassin's Creed Origins, then you'll like this The Hidden Ones DLC. You just won't like it for very long though, as you'll have it wrapped up in an afternoon. It's an add-on that is sadly both lazy and derivative, and when players are being charged around £30 for a season pass, I don't think its unjustified to expect a little more bang for our buck.

A more than satisfactory expansion that takes us to Sinai to give us much more content and even improve somewhat the story arc of the creation of the Brotherhood of the Assassins with respect to the base game.

Assassin's Creed Origins: The Hidden Ones is a rock solid expansion to a great game. It doesn't try to surprise or break the mould, but that's fine when the core gameplay remains this strong. For fans of Origins this is a no-brainer -- the story successfully builds upon the existing narrative, and there are some really enjoyable missions to sink your hidden blade into.

Assassin's Creed Origins: The Hidden Ones does not offer anything fundamentally new. This is another episode for those who like last year's release. If you finished Origins already and want to continue the game, you can safely buy this DLC.

The Hidden Ones brings lots of fresh new challenges that might have become scarce for veteran players in the main game.

Assassin's Creed Origins first DLC offers nothing new to anyone who finished the main game : with its artifical difficulty and its mandatory levelling, The Hidden Ones only takes advantage of its magnificent background to please the eye, even if you may encounter more bugs in a few hours of gameplay than the entire series itself.
