Assassin’s Creed Odyssey: The Fate Of Atlantis DLC Starts April 23rd
The first episode of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey‘s Fate of Atlantis DLC is coming on Tuesday, April 23, Ubisoft announced today. And yes, that is next week. Episode One: Fields of Elysium will whisk players to Elysium and set up the DLC’s mythology-fueled storyline ahead of Episode Two: Torment of Hades and Episode Three: Judgment of Atlantis, which will arrive later this year.
Following Legacy of the First Blade, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’s second post-launch episodic story arc, The Fate of Atlantis, will begin on April 23rd with Fields of Elysium. This will take players further into the Greek afterlife to take on mythical beasts and deities.
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.
Fields of Elysium will be followed by Torment of Hades in mid 2019 and Judgement of Atlantis later this year. To access Fields of Elysium, players will have to complete the Between Two Worlds questline and the Heir of Memories, the Lost Tales of Greece questline. A shortcut is also available for players that want to jump into Atlantis immediately.
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 first episode, Fields Of Elysium, launches next week on Tuesday, April 23rd. The remaining two episodes, Torment Of Hades and Judgement Of Atlantis, will launch by “mid-2019”. It’ll be available as part of the game’s £34/€40/$40 season pass (which includes Legacy Of The First Blade, Assassin’s Creed 3 Remastered and Fate Of Atlantis) or sold separately at launch.
The Fate of Atlantis storyline starts after you’ve completed the main game and you’ll need to complete the Between Two Worlds questline, along with the Heir of Memories and the Lost Tales of Greece questlines that follow. A character level of 28 or higher is also required. You can check the full details here.
