Meet Darius, the Legendary First Wielder of the Hidden Blade in a New Episodic Story Arc
Montreal — December 4, 2018 — Today, Ubisoft announced that the first episode, Hunted, in the new post-launch story arc for Assassin’s Creed® Odyssey, Legacy of the First Blade, is now available.
Hunted 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.
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 post-launch plan is the biggest and most ambitious in the franchise, and the launch of Legacy of the First Blade marked 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, two major milestones of the Assassin’s Creed franchise history, which will be released in March 2019.
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.
