New enemies chase the "obsessed".
By Colin Stevens
Assassin's Creed Odyssey's first major story-driven DLC, Legacy of the First Blade, has launched a launch car, which shows a very important assassin.
With Episode 1: Hunted released on December 4, Ancient of the First Blade follows the first killer to conceal a hidden leaf: Darius I, the son of Xerxes I. Although Darius had been a long time since the events of Assassin's Creed 2, Ezio continued to explore a tomb dedicated to Darius. Although the real story of the question is uncertain, many believe that Darius committed patricia and murdered Xerxes.
DLC will be divided into three episodes, with the first focus on Kassandra or Alexios who meets Darius. A new Persian enemy group appears in the trailer: they are seen as raging villages, wearing black masks and chasing the "tainted ones" that include the character of the player.
The Legacy of the First Blade was announced as part of the Odyssey Roadmap after launch, which contains another story-driven piece of content, Atlantis's fate, which will make players "confront divine beings and reveal the secrets of the legendary sunk city [of Atlantis]"From spring 2019.
As reported by Gamespot, Ubisoft announced that each set of content would consist of three chapters, half a week apart, the following two chapters from Legacy of the First Blade, Episode 2: Shadow Heritage and Episode 3: Bloodline are likely to come in mid January and late February and early March respectively.
Both DLC storylines are included in the game's season, but there has been regular free content to Assassin's Creed Odyssey since its launch. Although Ubisoft temporarily suspended live mercenaries, they are now running, and so far two have gone down: Abia The Shaded and Damais the indifferent.
