Assassin's Creed Odyssey season pass includes Assassin's Creed III Remastered

Share

However, we'll have to wait until the remaster's official release to confirm whether or not it's good enough to justify giving Assassins' Creed III a second chance. The story will apprise players of the backstory behind the assassins.

Legacy of the First Blade will "introduce players to the first hero to wield the iconic hidden blade, changing the course of history" and will begin releasing in December 2018. Embark on a whole new adventure in the comments section below.

There's a meaty collection of goodies in Odyssey's season pass - as there should be, for $US40 ($56) - which includes two big DLC packs that encompass three episodes each, with new episodes releasing every six weeks. It has players discovering the secrets of mythical Atlantis and confronting "godly creatures".

Ubisoft has announced the post-launch additional content plan for Assassin's Creed Odyssey, including Season Pass and free narrative content released on a regular basis. The content will be focused on Greek mythology and the First Civilization. Like previous HD remasters, Assassin's Creed III Remastered will be available as a standalone title for those who don't want to purchase the Season Pass. Episodes will start arriving in the Spring of 2019, also spaced six weeks apart. Keeping in tone with Assassin's Creed Odyssey, accessing this new content will be all about player choice.

Assassin's Creed III was first released in 2012 and followed the half-English, half-Mohawk Connor (real name: Ratonhnhaké:ton - try saying that five times quickly) as he played a pivotal role in the American Revolution. Both games come with higher resolution textures, a new graphics engine and support for 4K and HDR. These episodes will feature familiar characters from the main game as well as some new faces.

Recurring In-Game Events: Each week a new epic ship or mercenary will appear and present players with challenging battles as they hunt down powerful enemies. Discovery Tour will educate players about ancient Greece's monuments, history, and culture. Daily and weekly contracts will send players on new quests across Greece.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey releases October 5 on PC, PS4, and Xbox One in the west.
