Today, Ubisoft announced the release dates for the episodes of the first post-launch story arc of Assassin's Creed Odyssey called "Legacy of the First Blade." The first episode, titled "Hunted," should release on December 4, 2018 across all available platforms. According to the publisher, throughout Hunted and the following two episodes, players will continue their grand Greek Odyssey to encounter Darius, the legend who was first to wield the Assassin's Hidden Blade.

As the story unfolds, players will discover whether Darius is friend or foe, while meeting new characters, engaging in more naval combat, fighting new enemies, and uncovering unprecedented revelations about the Assassin's Creed universe.

After Hunted releases on December 4, the second episode, Shadow Heritage, and the third episode, Bloodline, will complete the first story arc in early 2019. Ubisoft added that Legacy of the First Blade is just the beginning for players who wish to progress further with new content in Ancient Greece.

While Assassin's Creed Odyssey might not be as great as Assassin's Creed Origins, it's still a lot of fun and takes place in a massive world. In our review, we said the game "is a great entry in the wider series, largely bug-free, with great visuals and tight combat. But many of the 'new' features Ubisoft included aren't as well executed as you might hope from an annual franchise. I wish Ubisoft had fleshed out the mercenary ladder and mercenary crew a bit more to tie them into the game's story."
