Assassin’s Creed Odyssey DLC will be series’ most ambitious post-launch content yet

Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey is getting a wealth of post-launch content, Ubisoft have revealed.

There will be a mixture of free and premium content which is focused primarily on story, but there will also be daily and weekly battles and challenges, Assassin’s Creed 3: Remastered, and much more.

Scott Phillips, the Game Director of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, has revealed all the details in a new video.

 

First up, the Season Pass will offer two massive Story Arcs, comprised of three episodes each. The first of which – Legacy of the First Blade – will begin in December. The episodes will dive into the lore of Assassin’s Creed, but also explore Greek myths.

In Legacy of the First Blade, you’ll fight alongside the first hero to wield the iconic hidden blade, learning why Assassin’s chose to fight from the shadows. Ubisoft intend each episode to launch six weeks apart, meaning the story of Legacy of the First Blade should conclude around March 2019.

The aim is to create a TV show like dynamic with shorter, sharper episodes that can be experienced all in one go or as they release.

The second story arc – The Fate of Atlantis – seems to follow Greek Mythology and the first civilisation as you confront dangerous creatures and explore the sunken city. These episodes will begin releasing Spring 2019.

All Season Pass owners will also receive the high definition Assassin’s Creed 3 Remastered with all of its DLC, and Assassin’s Creed Liberation Remastered in March 2019. This will also be sold seperately for those who do not wish to purchase the Season Pass.

Meanwhile, free content will see players explore The Lost Tales of Greece which includes three quests involving familiar characters and will release in-between the Season Pass episodes.

There will also be recurring in-game events, such as a ship to sink or mercenary to kill. Daily and Weekly Contracts can be collected all over Greece. Overtime, Ubisoft will also add a New Game Plus Mode, new mythical creatures, and the return of Discovery Tour so you can explore Ancient Greece in full without conflict.

Amazingly, Ubisoft have also said that there will also be more additional content to be revealed at a later date. Now we know why there won’t be another Assassin’s Creed game next year.
