Legacy of the First Blade is the first of the two part post-launch story arc for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. With Legacy of the First Blade, players will tackle the story of Darius, the very first person who handled the Hidden Blade and was used as a reference in Assassin’s Creed 2.
Here are the details of the first episode:
In Hunted, the first episode of Legacy of the First Blade, players will meet Darius, a mysterious warrior who fights with the iconic hidden blade. Darius is a legend from the Assassin’s Creed lore whose tomb appeared in Assassin’s Creed 2. In Hunted, players will learn about a new threat: the Order of the Ancients, a secret Persian organization that will pose a deadly threat to our hero.
Each of the three episodes of Legacy of the First Blade will feature a new ability linked to each branch of the skill tree, Hunter, Warrior and Assassin. In Hunted, the first episode, players will discover Death Veil, a new Assassin Ability. Using Death Veil will cause the bodies of assassinated enemies to immediately disappear, which makes this new ability perfect for a stealth approach. In addition, new legendary gear and weapons will be available to help players face the new threat.
To gain access to the DLC, make sure that you have completed the Naxos questline in Episode 7 of the main story of the game and have reached at least level 28.
