Assassin's Creed Odyssey: The Fate of Atlantis DLC is coming April 23rdPlatforms: Sony PlayStation 4 | Microsoft Xbox One | PC
Ubisoft announced today that the first episode of The Fate of Atlantis, the second DLC story-arc of Assassin's Creed Odyssey, will release on April 23rd.
Fields of Elysium is the first episode of three that will complete The Fate of Atlantis story-arc. The three episode story will see players "continue their Odyssey in the Greek afterlife to uncover the great mysteries that lie within the ancient realms of the gods".
In the Fields of Elysium episode coming on April 23rd, "players will traverse the paradise of Elysium, an realm of great beauty, to reveal sinister secrets while facing against the might of the Isu. Players will encounter both new factions and familiar characters, and acquire new legendary weapons and gear".
The Fate of Atlantis arc follows the game's first DLC story, Legacy of the First Blade, which is playable in its entirety right now for Season Pass owners. Because the second DLC is a direct continuation of the Assassin's Creed Odyssey story, players have two options if they wish to dive into The Fate of Atlantis:
- After the main game story, complete the questline Between Two Worlds, and Heir of Memories, the Lost Tales of Greece questline. Players must be at least level 28.
- Option two is for players who wish to skip straight to The Fate of Atlantis using a shortcut and do not fulfil 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", Ubisoft details in its press release.
Following the Fields of Elysium episode, subsequent episodes, The Torment of Hades, and Judgment of Atlantis will round out the story arc in mid-2019.
Assassin's Creed Odyssey Season Pass owners will be getting all of this lovely DLC, having already received a free copy of the recently released Assassin's Creed 3 Remastered and Assassin's Creed Liberation Remastered.
