Today, Ubisoft® announced the release dates for the episodes of the first post-launch story arc of Assassin’s Creed® Odyssey, Legacy of the First Blade.

As the story of Hunted unfolds, players will discover whether Darius is friend or foe, while meeting new characters, engaging in gripping naval combat, fighting new and powerful enemies, and uncovering revelations about the Assassin’s Creed universe.
Legacy of the First Blade continues to bring players’ choice to the forefront through the relationships they build with colorful characters and the decisions they make along the way. In Legacy of the First Blade, players can also customize new equipment and master new special abilities as they fight their way across Greece, engaging in visceral battles on land and on sea to continue their Odyssey and become a true hero of legend.
After Hunted releases on December 5, the second episode, Shadow Heritage, and the third episode, Bloodline, will complete the first story arc early 2019 on all platforms.
