Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Shadow Heritage DLC Releases January 15

Ubisoft have confirmed this morning that Shadow Heritage, the second chapter in Legacy of the First Blade, will launch on January 15th for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.

This will go alongside various other content and QoL updates for the game. In Shadow Heritage, players will continue the story told in Hunted, investigating a blockade around the port city of Achaia.

You will need to have finished the first episode of Legacy of the First Blade in order to access the DLC, completed the Naxos Questline in Chapter 7 of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and be Level 28 or above.

Meanwhile, the free content update – The Lost Tales of Greece – will continue through episodes four and five, entitled The Daughter of Lalaia and A Poet’s Legacy.

There will also be new items added to Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, such as the Dionysos Pack and The Athena Character and Naval Pack. And new features which add a level scaling system, two new tiers to the Mercenary ladder and a new vendor.

On top of all of that, Arges – a brand new Cyclop – has been added to the game. Beat him and you’ll be able to claim the legendary weapon – The Hammer of Hephaistos.

It’s all happening in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey this month! Will you be picking up Legacy of the First Blade?
