Ubisoft announced that the first episode, Hunted, of the first post-launch story arc of Assassin’s Creed® Odyssey, Legacy of the First Blade is now available across all available platforms. The first episode introduces new elements and features to Assassin’s Creed® Odyssey along with the beginning of a new epic story where they encounter Darius, the legendary first user of the iconic Assassin’s Hidden Blade. Legacy of the First Blade is part of the Season Pass of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.
New Character: Darius
In Hunted, the first episode of Legacy of the First Blade, players will meet Darius, a mysterious warrior who fights with the iconic hidden blade. Darius is a legend from the Assassin’s Creed lore whose tomb appeared in Assassin’s Creed 2. In Hunted, players will learn about a new threat: the Order of the Ancients, a secret Persian organization that will pose a deadly threat to our hero.
New Ability: Death Veil
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, the first episode, players will discover Death Veil, a new Assassin Ability. Using Death Veil will cause the bodies of assassinated enemies to immediately disappear, which makes this new ability perfect for a stealth approach. In addition, new legendary gear and weapons will be available to help players face the new threat.
To have access to the first episode Hunted from Legacy of the First Blade, 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.
