By now we should have all known that the first major DLC for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey was about to hit our PS4, Xbox One, or PC on December 4th. Ubisoft has been fairly open on when we can expect to continue our journey along in the game, if you have completed the core one too. What is interesting now is that we have a launch trailer for this DLC and it looks like we are getting another solid tie-in to another title in the franchise. Specifically Assassin’s Creed II for those who may not be completely up on all of the lore. Something that specifically ties into the assassin that used the first hidden blade and made them popular among the sect.
This first episode for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Hunted, it looks like whichever character you chose to go with will be meeting up with Darius I (presumably) to learn all about the blade and how it will shape the creed as the time rolls on. I say presumably as of this posting the name of the individual in the trailer was not mentioned directly to be said person even with Darius as the name, but way back in Assassin’s Creed II Ezio explored a tomb of said person who was the son of the Persian king Xerxes that was also listed as the first recorded person to use the hidden blade. It makes me scratch my head a bit on the timeline of the franchise given how Origins fits into it all, but it is a solid attempt with some DLC that looks to be more than a few extra fetch quests and contract kills. That is the more important part to me.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey — Legacy Of The First Blade
Ubisoft announced the release dates for the episodes of the first post-launch story arc of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Legacy of the First Blade. The first episode, Hunted, will release December 4 across all available platforms. Throughout Hunted and the following two episodes, players will continue their grand Greek Odyssey to encounter Darius, the legend who was first to wield the Assassin’s Hidden Blade.
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 customize new equipment and master new special abilities as they fight their way across Greece, engaging in visceral battles on land and on the 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.
