The early DLC for Assassin's Creed Odyssey has some decent enough missions, but Ubisoft's entire season does not justify it. The second half – The fate of Atlantis – it looks like it would be a far more interesting adventure. Launching next week, April 23, it reminds me of many underworld-delving second expansion for AC: Origins. It seems there's more to Atlantis than being a watery of a Grecian real estate with some glowy bits on ̵
The fate of Atlantis seems to be following closely the steps of the great curse of the Origins of the Pharaohs Expansion, which captures players in the Grecian afterlife. There are gods to meet, monsters to kill, and I'm feeling anxious that it can all be some sort of huge holodeck simulation thing deep in the intestine of Atlantis. There will be some great new environments to explore, starting with Elysium itself, and a new set of skills to learn in a unique new land, named after the gods of the land. The Ares Bull Charge, Artemis and Kronos Smile Time Warp are just like fun new toys to play.
It seems that the new expansion will take a moment for new players to reach, requiring a level 28 or higher character and completing end-quests of the story between the two worlds and heirs of memories. However, just like its Origins origins, there will be an option to skip straight to The Fate Of Atlantis with a level of 52 pre-equipped characters, but you are likely to be gone, wisely. I must accept that I am eager to go back to the game and see what they can do with the training wheels taken. Historical Greece is good and good, but the unpredictable fiction is more exciting.
The first episode, Fields Of Elysium, will be launching next week on Tuesday, April 23. The remaining two episodes, Hades Torture and Judgment of Atlantis, will be launched by "mid-2019". It will be available as part of the season pass of £ 34 / € 40 / $ 40 of the game (which includes Legacy Of The First Blade, Creed 3 Remastered and Fate Of Atlantis of Assassin) or sold separately at launch.
