Assassin's Creed Odyssey: The Fate of Atlantis Begins on April 23rd

By Rebecca Smith, 3 days ago
Two weeks ago, the achievements were revealed for the first episode of the next Assassin's Creed Odyssey DLC story arc, "The Fate of Atlantis". Ubisoft has now revealed that players won't have to wait much longer to get their hands on the upcoming content. "Episode 1: Fields of Elysium" will arrive on April 23rd, with the following two episodes due to arrive throughout 2019.

The Fate of Atlantis

"Episode 1: Fields of Elysium" sees players take on the Isu in the beautiful environment of Elysium as they try to get to the bottom of some sinister secrets. Their quest will take them to meet new factions as well as familiar characters, and they'll be rewarded with legendary weapons and gear for its completion.

Players will also be able to make use of new Ability enhancements that modify existing abilities and give even more opportunities to cater to individual playstyles. The enhancements are divided into Hunter, Warrior, and Assassin enhancements, and there will be several new enhancements introduced per episode. Episode 1 will bring along Ares Bull Charge, Might of Artemis, Kronos Time Warp, and Ares Madness in Fields of Elysium, although we don't have any details on any of these.

There are two ways to begin the DLC episode. The first way can be accessed once players have completed the mythological main game story arc, Between Two Worlds, and the Lost Tales of Greece questline Heir of Memories. They will also need to be at character level 28 or higher. This is the only way to access the DLC and earn its achievements, because the second method prevents players from doing the latter. The second method is for players who want to try out the DLC without meeting any of the above prerequisites. These players will find a shortcut where they'll enter the game as a preset level 52 character with specific abilities and resources. The Heir of Memories questline will still need to be completed, but any progress will not be carried over to the player's main game save and achievements cannot be earned using this shortcut.

The story arc will continue with two more episodes that pit players against deities and mythical beasts, as well as encountering plenty of friendly character. The second episode, "Torment of Hades", and the third episode, "Judgment of Atlantis", will arrive by mid-2019.
