Assassin’s Creed Odyssey: Legacy of the First Blade Coming on December 4th
The release dates of the episodes of the first post-launch story arc for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, called Legacy of the First Blade, were revealed today by Ubisoft. The first episode, called “Hunted,” will be launched on December 4th across all available platforms. In Hunted and the upcoming two more episodes, gamers will continue their journey to find Darius, the legend who was first to wield the Assassin’s Hidden Blade.
Check out the launch trailer of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey: Legacy of the First Blade, featuring a cinematic video:
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.
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 customise 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.
After Hunted releases on December 4, the second episode, Shadow Heritage, and the third episode, Bloodline, will complete the first story arc in early 2019 across all platforms.
The Assassin’s Creed Odyssey post-launch plan is the biggest and most ambitious in the franchise, and the launch of Legacy of the First Blade is just the beginning for players who wish to progress further with new content in Ancient Greece. Season Pass owners will access two major episodic storylines, Legacy of the First Blade and The Fate of Atlantis. Players can dive into new episodes as they premiere, or experience the epic adventures in their entirety once all episodes are available. The Season Pass also includes Assassin’s Creed® III Remastered and Assassin’s Creed® Liberation Remastered, which will be released in March 2019.
Legacy of the First Blade can be purchased as part of the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Season Pass, which is available from £29.99, or separately as a story arc, on December 4.
