Here's how January looks for Assassin's Creed Origins

The Hidden Ones

Ubisoft says that all players will receive a free quest that ties in with The Hidden One expansion.

Ubisoft said that the expansion is a "vast story" but didn't provide any indication of its actual length in terms of hours.

The Hidden Ones also launches this month. This update will also increase the game's level cap from 40 to 45.

Update to the loot chests item pool, which adds all the items from the Nightmare and First Civilization packs, as well as the Gladiator and Wacky packs.

Players will also be able to sell outfit at the various weaver shops dotted around the regions.

Matt Patricia To The NY Giants Looking More and More Likely

Pokémon Go will drop support for some Apple devices next month
In addition to the iPhone 5 and 5c, this change affects first-, third-, and fourth-generation iPads, plus the iPad 2. It's also worth noting that Pokemon GO may well see a noticeable drop in players once the update rolls out.

SC: Not mandatory to play National Anthem before a Movie
Supreme Court has stated that playing of the national anthem - " Jana Gana Mana " at movie halls is not mandatory. The new decision, Indian news outlets reported, allows theatres to choose whether to play the national anthem.

Some of the other additions to Assassin's Creed Origins in January include the return of Trial of the Gods and new costume packs.

Ubisoft has been more than happy to keep Assassin's Creed Origins in the spotlight, especially after it impressed many people by revitalizing the Assassin's Creed series.

Ubisoft has not set an exact date for The Hidden Ones' arrival, but we're expecting it sooner rather than later - Trophies for the expansion have already been spotted out in the wild. Once that's over, players will be able to take on the devious Sobek from January 23 to January 30. "Assassin's Creed: Origins", despite being a stealth action game primarily, has some of the heaviest RPG elements in the history of the franchise, and it would do well to have a New Game+ mode.

Players would probably prefer stronger assurance that a New Game+ mode will be added, but the recent revelation from the developers at least offers hope that the feature will be introduced eventually.
