Assassin’s Creed Odyssey DLC The Fate of Atlantis dated

First episode of new story expansion launching in late April, trailer also released

Ubisoft has confirmed a launch date for its next major Assassin’s Creed Odyssey DLC, a story expansion called The Fate of Atlantis.

It’ll be told across three episodes, starting with Fields of Elysium’s April 23 release as part of the Xbox One, PS4 and PC game’s season pass .

The second and third episodes, Torment of Hades and Judgment of Atlantis respectively, will arrive by mid-2019.

According to the official blurb, The Fate of Atlantis sees players confront deities and mythical beasts as they “continue their Odyssey in the Greek afterlife to uncover the great mysteries that lie within the ancient realms of the gods”.

Each episode will introduce new ability enhancements, which are divided into the different branches of the skill tree, starting with Fields of Elysium’s Ares Bull Charge, Might of Artemis, Kronos Time Warp and Ares Madness.

Ubisoft says there are two ways to access The Fate of Atlantis:

  • Following the main game, players will have to complete the questline Between Two Worlds, the mythological main game story arc, and Heir of Memories, the Lost Tales of Greece questline that is available after completing the former questline. Finally, they must have reached character level 28 or above.
  • Otherwise, players will be able to use a shortcut created specifically for those who would like to play The Fate of Atlantis and who do not fulfill all 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.

While there won’t a new mainline entry in the Assassin’s Creed series in 2019, the next game in the blockbuster franchise will reportedly feature a Norse setting and Viking storyline.
