Ubisoft has revealed the post-launch content for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, hinting that players may face off against the famed Xerxes I.
The DLC will launch as two episodic campaigns. Similarly to the post-launch support for Assassin’s Creed Origins, one of these packs will be historical and the other mythological.
The first campaign, ‘Legacy of the First Blade’, will introduce players to the first user of the hidden blade, which, according to established canon, was Darius. Darius, who was the commander of Xerxes’s bodyguard, slew the Persian king in 465 BCE, more than 30 years before the events of the main game. This story will begin releasing in December 2018.
‘The Fate of Atlantis’ will be the second pack, and promises to take players to the sunken city of Atlantis, where they will face off against all manner of creatures. This second set of DLC will begin launching in spring 2019.
Each campaign will comprise three parts, expected to release approximately six weeks apart. These packs will be available to anyone who buys the season pass, which will also be included in the numerous special editions of Odyssey. As an added bonus, the season pass will include a remaster of Assassin’s Creed III, which bundles in all of the DLC available for that title, as well as Assassin’s Creed: Liberation Remastered.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey was recently revealed to include a Discovery Mode that promotes player-led exploration. Meanwhile, OnlySP’s Daniel Pereira recently had the chance to go hands-on with the ambitious title, and his impressions will be available soon.
