Assassin’s Creed Origins December Updates Brings Nightmare Mode, Horde Mode, And More

Origins December

In an update from Ubisoft, the team shed some light on the Assassin’s Creed Origins December updates that would be rolling out. Some of the major points include a new difficulty mode, new quests, and a new boss available in Trials of the God.

Due to the popular demand for increased difficulty, a new Nightmare mode is being released which leave enemies “more resilient to damage and more dangerous”. Players will need to be more careful and tactical in the action they take part in with Bayek. Speaking of action, Horde mode is releasing a new event quest by fighting off unlimited waves of foes to test fans warrior abilities. One other major item is the addition of the warrior goddess Sekhmet into the Trials of the Gods, who is sure to test the might and abilities of all assassins.

Below are the release notes for the Assassin’s Creed Origins December update per Ubisoft:

  • New Challenges
    • Nightmare mode: a new Nightmare difficulty level will be available. The enemies will become more resilient to damages and more dangerous.
    • Enemy scaling: by popular request, we will add the enemy scaling option. When this option is activated, the game automatically scale the lower level enemies to your level.
    • Nightmare and First Civ pack items will be available in the Heka Chest.
  • Two new quests
    • A new quest introducing Horde mode. The event quest, Here Comes a New Challenger, will introduce you to Horde mode to satisfy your warrior longings. You can prove yourself in the Cyrene arena against unlimited waves of foes. We recommend Level 32 or higher.
    • A new surprise quest!
  • Trials of the Gods
    • This month, players will have a chance to fight the last god of the god trio, the warrior goddess herself, Sekhmet. Are you ready to face the fiercest hunter known to the ancient Egyptians?
    • But it does not end here. Back in November, many of you proved worthy when you beat Anubis and Sobek in the first two Trials of the Gods. We know that not everyone had the chance to face those gods at that time but fear not, now is your time. Players will have the chance to confront all three gods.
