Ubisoft has planned a three-episode story arc to provide additional content for Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey and the first episode of the Legacy of the First Blade story is now available. Entitled Hunted, this episode introduces new elements and features to Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, beginning a new epic story where our hero encounters Darius, the first user of the iconic Assassin’s Hidden Blade. A legend from Assassin’s Creed lore whose tomb appeared in Assassin’s Creed II, players will find out if Darius is friend or foe and learn about a new enemy; the Order of the Ancients.
Legacy of the First Blade – Hunted
Each of the three episodes of Legacy of the First Blade will feature a new ability linked to each branch of the skill tree, Hunter, Warrior, and Assassin. In Hunted, players will discover Death Veil, a new Assassin Ability where bodies of assassinated enemies will immediately disappear, making this new ability perfect for stealth. In addition, new legendary gear and weapons will be available.
To access Hunted players must have completed the Naxos questline in Episode 7 of the main story of the game and reached character level 28 or above.
The Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey Season Pass, which includes Legacy of the First Blade and The Fate of Atlantis, can be purchased for $49.99. The first episode Hunted is now downloadable for players who already own the Season Pass or Gold Edition. The second and third episodes in Legacy of the First Blade will complete the story arc in early 2019.
