The second post-launch story arch for Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey launches on April 23rd. The first episode, titled Fields of Elysium, kicks off The Fate of Atlantis and will be available across all platforms. Over a total of three episodes, players will explore the Greek afterlife and its various mysteries.
“As the story of Fields of Elysium unfolds, players will traverse the paradise of Elysium, an otherworldly realm of great beauty, to reveal its sinister secrets all while facing against the might of the Isu,” says Ubisoft’s press release.
Players will be able to tweak their character’s abilities by utilizing new ability enhancements. Ability enhancements are divided into each branch of the skill tree. Various enhancements will be introduced in each episode, starting with Ares Bull Charge, Might of Artemis, Kronos Time Warp, and Ares Madness in Fields of Elysium.
How to Start The Fate of Atlantis
To play The Fate of Atlantis, players will have two different options:
- Following the main game, players will have to complete the questline Between Two Worlds, the mythological main game story arc, and Heir of Memories, the Lost Tales of Greece questline that is available after completing the former questline. Finally, they must have reached character level 28 or above.
- Otherwise, players will be able to use a shortcut explicitly created for those who would like to play The Fate of Atlantis and who do not fulfill all the above conditions. Thanks to this shortcut, players will enter Greece level 52 with preset Abilities and resources. They will also have the opportunity to choose their hero. However, players’ progression using the shortcut will not carry over to the main game save. They will also not be able to obtain achievements.
The Fate of Atlantis is included in the Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey Season Pass. You can also purchase it separately for $34.99. Regardless of how you acquire it, it will be downloadable on April 23.
