Assassin's Creed Odyssey Legacy of the First Blade Episode 2 Out Now

Ubisoft have already released Episode 1 to their first Assassin’s Creed Odyssey DLC Episode, and now players will be able to download Episode 2 (of 3).

“In Shadow Heritage, a letter from Darius leads players to investigate a mystery through which the hero will come face to face with a new threat, The Tempest, a mastermind of naval battle who commands her own fleet. With her superior naval techniques and deadly weaponry, she will stop at nothing to ensure the hero’s demise.”

While the first episode brought a new Assassin ability, this episode will come with a new Hunter ability - Rapid Fire.

“It will allow players to rapidly shoot arrows without having to reload with the firing speed increasing with each skill level and will be a valuable skill to all players, not only those with a Hunter playstyle.”

ASSASSIN’S CREED® ODYSSEY LEGACY OF THE FIRST BLADE, EPISODE 2, NOW AVAILABLE

Battle The Tempest and Unravel a New Mystery in the Latest Story Arc Episode 

Montreal— January 15, 2019 — Today, Ubisoft announced that Shadow Heritage, the second episode in the first post-launch story arc for Assassin’s Creed® Odyssey Legacy of the First Blade, is now available across all available platforms.

In Shadow Heritage, a letter from Darius leads players to investigate a mystery through which the hero will come face to face with a new threat, The Tempest, a mastermind of naval battle who commands her own fleet. With her superior naval techniques and deadly weaponry, she will stop at nothing to ensure the hero’s demise.

Each episode of Legacy of the First Blade will feature a new ability for each branch of the skill tree: Hunter, Warrior and Assassin. The first episode, Hunted, introduced a new Assassin ability, and in Shadow Heritage players will discover a new Hunter ability, Rapid Fire. It will allow players to rapidly shoot arrows without having to reload with the firing speed increasing with each skill level and will be a valuable skill to all players, not only those with a Hunter playstyle.

To access Shadow Heritage, players must have completed Hunted, the first episode of Legacy of the First Blade, and the Naxos questline in Chapter 7 of the main story of the game, and must have 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 is 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 and will be released this March.

The Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Season Pass, which includes the two story arcs Legacy of the First Blade and The Fate of Atlantis, can be purchased for $49.99. Legacy of the First Blade is also available separately for $34.99. The first episode, Hunted, and second episode, Shadow Heritage, are now downloadable for players who already own the season pass or Gold Edition. The third episode of Legacy of the First Blade will complete the story arc beginning of March.
