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.”

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.
