Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’s final story DLC has a release date

Judgment of Atlantis launching in mid-July

Ubisoft has confirmed a July 16 release date for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’s Judgment of Atlantis DLC.

Following on from April’s Fields of Elysium and June’s Torment of Hades, Judgment of Atlantis is the third and final episode in Odyssey’s The Fate of Atlantis story expansion.

Each episode includes new ability enhancements, which are divided into the different branches of the skill tree and aid players as they confront deities and mythical beasts in the Greek afterlife.

The Judgment of Atlantis release date announcement was accompanied by the screenshot above, offering a first look at Poseidon’s realm.

Ubisoft opted not to release a new entry in the Assassin’s Creed series this year, instead choosing to back 2018’s Odyssey with the “biggest and most ambitious” post-launch content plan in the history of the franchise.

Reporting its annual financial results in March, the publisher said Assassin’s Creed Odyssey had set series records for player engagement and DLC sales.

In June, Ubisoft released an Assassin’s Creed Odyssey story creator mode, enabling players to craft their own quests and share them with the community.

Free for all owners of the game, it’s based on the story-designer tools and branching dialogue systems found in Ubisoft Quebec’s open-world action title.

While there won’t a new 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.
