Legacy of the First Blade is Now Available in Assassin's Creed Odyssey

Ubisoft has officially made the first episode of "Legacy of the First Blade" available in Assassin's Creed Odyssey starting today. The company released a new introduction to the series yesterday along with some additional information as you dive into what is supposed to be the first of several DLC additions to the game. No word yet on when the next episodes will roll around, but we're guessing nothing will hit until around mid-Q1 of 2019.

Darius – who fans might remember as one of the ancient Assassins enshrined under the Villa Auditore – has been living in hiding since killing Persia's King Xerxes. He's a man of many secrets, some of which you'll gradually discover over the course of Legacy of the First Blade. Along with his son or daughter, Natakas or Neema (with the one you meet determined by who you're playing as), he'll prove a valuable ally in your battle against a new enemy.

Intended for players level 28 and above, Hunted will unlock once you're past the Naxos questline in Episode 7 of the main storyline. It'll give you a chance to chase the new level-70 cap and unlock a new high-level Assassin Ability, Death Veil. Intended for meticulous sneakers who don't want to leave a mess, Death Veil reduces the risk of alarms by making every stealth-killed enemy instantly vanish. The second and third episodes, Shadow Heritage and Bloodline, will also add one new Ability apiece when they launch in early 2019.
