Discover your true power, and the fate of the first civilization, with Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey – The Fate of Atlantis.
So says a tagline under the launch trailer for the latest piece of planned downloadable content for Ubisoft’s engrossing Grecian adventure, Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey. A new, post-launch story arc that will soon begin with the release of its first of three planned episodes. Said introductory episode is called Fields of Elysium, and will be released on April 23rd.
As the story of Fields of Elysium unfolds, players will traverse the paradise of Elysium, an otherworldly realm of great beauty, to reveal its sinister secrets all while facing against the might of the Isu. Players will encounter both new factions and familiar characters, and acquire new legendary weapons and gear.
Fields of Elysium will also introduce all-new Ability enhancements, which modify existing abilities to alter their function, giving players the opportunity to further fine-tune their playstyles. Ability enhancements are divided into each branch of the skill tree, Hunter, Warrior and Assassin, and several will be introduced in each episode, starting with Ares Bull Charge, Might of Artemis, Kronos Time Warp and Ares Madness in Fields of Elysium.
Following the first story arc, Legacy of the First Blade, The Fate of Atlantis will see our hero confront deities, encounter terrifying beasts of myth, and forge new bonds with a colorful cast of characters.
Fans of the game will have two ways to partake in The Fate of Atlantis’ campaign:
- Following the main game, players will have to complete the questline Between Two Worlds, the mythological main game story arc, and Heir of Memories, the Lost Tales of Greece questline that is available after completing the former questline. Finally, they must have reached character level 28 or above.
- Otherwise, players will be able to use a shortcut created specifically for those who would like to play The Fate of Atlantis and who do not fulfill all the above conditions. Thanks to this shortcut, players will enter Greece level 52 with preset Abilities and resources enabling them to start their adventure into the afterlife with the Lost Tales of Greece questline Heir of Memories. They will also have the opportunity to choose their hero. However, contrary to the previous option – players’ progression using the shortcut will not carry over to the main game save, and they will not be able to obtain achievements.
The remaining two episodes of Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey‘s The Fate of Atlantis DLC arc are expected to be released by mid-2019.
