A wonderful new trailer for the first of the two episodic DLC for Assassins Creed Odyssey has been released and there is quite the touch of familiarity. And I am not just referring to the fact that they revealed part of this trailer mid-September, but to the fact that the Hidden Blade – the symbol of the Assassin Order is making a return…entrance?
The first of the three-part episodic DLC will have the player meet Darius I, the very first individual to wield a Hidden Blade. Ezio did a lot of exploring across his games and we did discover some secrets back then that are being played out now.
Legacy of the First Blade introduces us to a new enemy type, presumably Persian who are hunting down Alexios/Kassandra whom they refer to as the ‘tainted ones’. The DLC will have us tracking down and assassinating leaders of this powerful new faction and eliminating them, much like we did to the Cult of Kosmos.
The trailer also revealed one more incredibly badass thing in relation to our ships. Getting quite the upgrade, our ships appear to be able to fire short streams of flame from the bow (1 minute 16 secs). Obviously this will be a new upgrade for players to seek out, but one that will be put to very good use.
Legacy of the First Blade will be available to download for Season Pass holders on December 4th, 2018. The Season Pass will also grant you the next two episodes of Legacy of the First Blade, as well as the three episodes of Fate of Atlantis.
