Assassin’s Creed Origins patch 1.2.0 fixes issues, prepares for upcoming expansion

Gaming / PC / PlayStation / Xbox

While some of the bug fixes are minor, some of the changes will definitely be welcomed by players.

Assassin’s Creed Origins will be dropping a new patch today to fix issues with the game and prepare for the upcoming “The Hidden Ones” expansion. Patch 1.2.0 will hit all the usual places that Origins is on and the patch size is pretty similar across the board. For both the PS4 and Xbox One, the patch is 3GB in size, while Uplay PC is 2.6GB and Steam is 1.2GB.

The patch fixes various cinematic transitions, issues caused when skipping transitions, issues in attacks and so on. While some of the bug fixes are minor, some of the changes will definitely be welcomed by players. Heka Chests, for example, will now include items from the Nightmare, First Civilization, Gladiator, Wacky (Q-tip staff anyone?), and Almighty packs allowing players to get the newer gear without having to shell out for it. Although not a core component of the game, the difficulty in the Hippodrome races has been reduced as well which should make them more enticing alongside the bevy of side quests available.

The full list of patch notes is below:
