Assassin's Creed Origins Patch 1.1.0 Adds Nightmare Difficulty And Enemy Scaling

Horde mode and lots of fixes.

A rather large patch is going out today for Assassin’s Creed Origins in the form of patch 1.1.0, and this has added a new nightmare difficulty as well as the option to have enemy levels scale to meet player level so battles remain challenging. Additionally a Horde mode has been added to the arena too. Additionally there have been a number of fixes and improvements to the overall experience on offer.

If you’re a fan of the Hippodrome then you’ll be happy to know that the drachma rewards have been increased. There are also options to customise beard, hood, and hair in the gear menu, the compass can be hidden on the HUD, fixes to stop sound from overlapping at times, and a number of visual issues have also been addressed. The patch is 3GB on console, 2.7GB through UPlay, and 1.2GB on Steam.

You can view the full patch notes below.

    That all looks good to me! Glad to see the inclusion of auto-scaling. That should ensure the game is still challenging whilst I mop up some unfinished quests.

    I’m thoroughly enjoying origins. Ubi have do well in reviving the Series. Wasn’t sure with combat at first but now it makes sense.

    Just a heads up a new quest tied to the horde mode is available with this patch. The start point is just outside of Balagrae in the Green Mountains area.
    No spoilers but it’s worth doing as the reward is pretty special.
