If you were one of the many that fell in love with Assassin’s Creed Odyssey late this year, Ubisoft has some good news for you. The publisher revealed their Assassin’s Creed Odyssey DLC dates, with the first release coming next week.
December 4th marks the first of several Assassin’s Creed Odyssey DLC dates. On Tuesday, Ubisoft will release the first of three episodes in their Legacy of the First Blade story arc. The first episode drops on the 4th and is titled Hunted. The published teases that “throughout Hunted and the following two episodes, players will continue their grand Greek Odyssey to encounter Darius, the legend who was first to wield the Assassin’s Hidden Blade.”
Ubisoft continues, saying “As the story of Hunted unfolds, players will discover whether Darius is friend or foe, while meeting new characters, engaging in gripping naval combat, fighting new and powerful enemies, and uncovering revelations about the Assassin’s Creed universe.”
It sounds as Ubisoft will be utilizing these Assassin’s Creed Odyssey DLC dates to build further connections between the wider Assassin’s Creed universe as a whole. Here’s more from their statement breaking down what to expect from Legacy of the First Blade in its entirety:
“Legacy of the First Blade continues to bring players’ choice to the forefront through the relationships they build with colorful characters and the decisions they make along the way. In Legacy of the First Blade, players can also customize new equipment and master new special abilities as they fight their way across Greece, engaging in visceral battles on land and on sea to continue their Odyssey and become a true hero of legend.”
Ubisoft didn’t give exact dates for Episode 2 and Episode 3 of Legacy of the First Blade. They did announce their titles though. Episode 2 will be known as Shadow Heritage and Episode 3 will be dubbed Bloodline. Both are expected in early 2019 across all platforms.
Another episodic story arrives after Legacy of the First Blade which Ubisoft has named The Fate of Atlantis. Both comprise what the publisher is calling their “biggest and most ambitious” post-launch plans for the franchise. You can get access to it all via the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Season Pass which is currently going for $39.99.
