Prepare to learn more about the legend who was the first to wield the Assassin’s Hidden Blade in the first episode of the Legacy of the First Blade DLC with its first episode – Hunted, set to release on Dec. 4. Find out more today.
In a rather exciting announcement, Ubisoft, the publisher and developer of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, has confirmed that the first DLC for their critically acclaimed title, is set to release next Tuesday and will take players on a grand adventure as they encounter Darius, the legend who was the first to wield the Hidden Blade the Assassin’s would become known to wield throughout the history of the series.
During your time through Episode I – Hunted, you will discover the truth behind who Darius is and whether or not he is a friend or foe in the Assassin’s Creed universe. However, there’s more than just Darius for Kassandra and Alexios to encounter. Ubisoft has confirmed that player choices will still be at the forefront throughout the DLC and they will continue to build relationships with a colorful cast of characters they will encounter.
Along with an all-new story to experience, players will also have the ability to try out new customizable equipment, new abilities to master, and even engage in vicious battles across both land and sea as they continue to write create their very own odyssey within the world of Assassin’s Creed.
Ubisoft has confirmed that both the second and third episodes; Shadow Heritage and Bloodline, will complete the first story arc of Assassin’s Creedy Odyssey in early 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Ubisoft’s commitment to post-launch content is one of the biggest in the history of the franchise and will continue on with two major episodic storylines: Legacy of the First Blade and The Fate of Atlantis. Those who own the season pass will also get a chance to get their hands on both Assassin’s Creed III Remastered and Assassin’s Creed Liberation Remastered, which are set to release in March of 2019.
You can find out today why we called Assassin’s Creed Odyssey an “Odyssey worth experiencing” and why Ubisoft Montreal “didn’t want us to just blow through the story or focus on a single thing. They wanted us to live in this digital world, to see the sights, to visit with the locals, take on weekly or daily bounties and even take time to see just what Greece would have been like had we been alive in those times,” and why we scored the game a 10 out of 10 in our review.
Stay tuned as we’ll keep you updated with future announcements for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey as they are made.
