Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’s next episodic DLC begins next week

Ubisoft has announced the release dates for the beginning of the second episodic DLC for Assassin’s Creed Odyseey. The Fate of Atlantis will commence with Episode One — Fields of Elysium — next week and will be followed by an additional two episodes.

In The Fate of Atlantis, DLC players will “continue their Odyssey in the Greek afterlife to uncover the great mysteries that lie within the ancient realms of the gods.”

This Assassin’s Creed Odyssey DLC sends players to Elysium which is both a paradise and hiding something more sinister and dangerous.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey DLC

When the DLC launches it not only adds new missions and story content but will also introduce new ability enhancements. These are separated by the branches of the skill tree and will begin to be available in the first episode. 

The new ability enhancements include;

  • Ares Bull Charge
  • Might of Artemis
  • Kronos Time Warp
  • Ares Madnes

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey DLC has already seen one story-arc with Legacy of the First Blade. Now, players can dive deeper into Greek myth with The Fate of Atlantis. Fields of Elysium releases on April 23 with Torment of Hades and Judgment of Atlantis coming later in 2019.

For this DLC, Ubisoft has advised;

In order to play The Fate of Atlantisplayers will have two different options:

  • 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.

The Fate of Atlantis begins on April 23 with Episode One, Fields of Elysium.
