New and exciting items are also packed with the DLC, headlined by two new legendary weapons, a fresh outfit, two new mounts, and several more weapons to add a new texture to the game.
As mentioned by Ubisoft, the first DLC will pick up where the main event of the game had left off four years back. Players will have to contend with the massive occupying army sent by the Roman Empire. Specifically for Bayek, the DLC will bump up the level cap to 45.
