Do note that everything we say about Assassin's Creed Odyssey is based on a preview build of the game and the retail version could be very different from the game we played. This was because the publisher meant to support this year's Assassin's Creed Odyssey with plenty of post-launch content. Players will be able to choose whether they play each episode as it appears, or to wait and experience the story all at once upon the release of the final episode.
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.
The pass also includes two additional story arc packages. In a surprising saga filled with twists and turns, players will get even closer to Greek mythology and the First Civilization. Episodes will start arriving in the Spring of 2019, also spaced six weeks apart.
In addition, Season Pass holders will receive a copy of Assassin's Creed Remastered as part of the purchase price. Keeping in tone with Assassin's Creed Odyssey, accessing this new content will be all about player choice. Both remastered games will feature 4K and HDR functionality on PS4 Pro, Xbox One X and PC, higher resolution textures, a new graphics engine, other graphical enhancements and improved gameplay mechanics.
