Ubisoft made the pledge when they took a break in 2019 from releasing a new Assassin’s Creed title that they would continue to provide a slew of content for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. With their last three major expansions and monthly side quest additions, they have most certainly delivered on that promise. With the announcement of the Fate of Atlantis DLC, the French studio has once again made good on their guarantee.
Exploring A Fantastical Afterlife
Following the main quests tales of larger than life heroes and mythical creatures, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey plans to double down on the expansive Greek mythology. Following the first three part DLC Legacy of the First Blade, the second major expansion comes in the form of yet another three part rollout. This time though, The Fate of Atlantis will explore vastly different themes than the initial expansion did.
The first episode Fields of Elysium will touch on something not yet explored by Odyssey with a venture into the afterlife. The rest of the expansion will see players delve even deeper into the Greek mythos of life after death, going even so far as interacting with gods and being introduced to fearsome creatures. The next episodes in the saga bear the titles Torment of Hades and Judgement of Atlantis, so it’s safe to assume fans will be taken far past the idyllic realm of Elysium.
In addition to a breathtaking setting, new aspects will be added to the gameplay as well. This will take the form of new abilities that will alter players’ existing skill set, offering even more customizable styles of play. To access these skills and the DLC’s plotline players will need to have their characters at level 28 at least, and have completed Heir of Memories and Between New Worlds quests. Alternatively, players can simply jump right into The Fate of Atlantis with a preset level 52 character, but this will result in an inability to transfer progress back to the main game.
Fields of Elysium will be available for download on April 23, either for standalone purchase at $25, or bundled with Odyssey’s season pass. The remainder of The Fate of Atlantis will be rolled out in the coming months. If the past DLC release schedule is anything to go by, fans can expect to see a new part of the episodic expansion every six weeks, although that has not been officially confirmed.
