The post launch adventures and stories in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey keep rolling. Players are now able to journey into the mouth of hell in Episode 2 of The Fate of Atlantis DLC.
Titled ‘Torment of Hades,’ Episode 2 sees players travel to the Underworld. Ruled by the god Hades, the Underworld will test players with visions from the past and a debt owed to the god of the dead.
To play Torment of Hades, players will need to have completed the Between Two Worlds questline, the main mythological arc and the Lost Tales of Greece questline. They’ll also need to have reached level 28.

Players who don’t meet the requirements will be able to use a shortcut to get into the Torment of Hades content.
According to Ubisoft, the shortcut works as follows;
Players will enter Greece level 52 with preset abilities and resources, enabling them to start their adventure into the afterlife with Heir of Memories.
They will also have the opportunity to choose their hero. However, contrary to the previous option, player 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 DLC adds new abilities with each episode. In The Torment of Hades, a new ability has been added to the Hunter, Warrior and Assassin skill trees;
- Kronos Time Shift is part of the Warrior branch of the skill tree and will launch players into the air while temporarily blinding surrounding enemies. While you are in the air, time stops for a moment, letting you use abilities from above or in a chain with Leap of Faith’s ground smash. When you shoot in the air, the damage will also automatically crit targets.
- Ares Last Breath is also part of the Warrior branch of the skill tree. This healing ability will grant immunity to enemy attacks, restore 5% of damage dealt as Health and automatically parry enemy melee hits.
- Artemis Trickery is part of the Hunter branch of the skill tree and will transform players’ arrows into deadly traps that detonate and deal damage to enemies that come in close proximity. Any type of arrow can be used and will offer a different type of effect on detonation.
Torment of Hades is episode 2 of The Fate of Atlantis which is available as part of the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey season pass. The Fate of Atlantis is also available to purchase as standalone DLC.
