The Legacy of the First Blade continues next week.
The second episode of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’s Legacy of the First Blade DLC will be released on January 15, Ubisoft announced today.
Titled Shadow Heritage, this latest chapter continues the story from Episode 1, Hunted, and sees players investigating “a blockade initiated by the Order of the Ancients around the port city in Achaia.” In order to begin Shadow Heritage, players will have to complete Hunted, progress beyond the Naxos portion of Chapter 7 in the main story, and reach at least level 28.
Legacy of the First Blade is available as part of the $40 USD Season Pass or as a separate $25 USD purchase.
The Daughters of Lalaia and A Poet’s Legacy, the fourth and fifth episodes of Odyssey’s free The Lost Tales of Greece DLC, will also be released this month, in addition to a new level scaling setting. This new option, available on all difficulty settings but Nightmare, allows players to adjust “how drastically the enemies will scale to their level.”
Legacy of the First Blade began in early December with Hunted and introduced the story of Darius, the first assassin to ever wield the hidden blade. IGN’s review called it “a brief but welcome new slice of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey that sets the stage for the more traditional Assassins-versus-Templars-style micro-drama that was mostly missing from the base game.”
