Ubisoft now offers Fields of Elysium
, the first episode The Fate of Atlantis
the second post-launch story arc of Assassin's Creed Odyssey
, adding to the
ever-more complex cascade of content for the sequel. Word is: "Throughout Fields
of Elysium, players will continue their odyssey in the Greek afterlife to
uncover the great mysteries within the ancient realms of the gods."
covers the news, and offers
this launch trailer
from last week. Here's a futile attempt to simplify the release news and where
it fits with their DLC roadmap:
Fields of Elysium introduces players to
the paradise of Elysium, an otherworldly realm of luscious growth and no
conflict, ruled by the goddess Persephone. As the story unfolds, players uncover
its sinister secrets while trying to unlock the power of the Staff of Hermes to
find a way out of Elysium. Helping Hermes, Persephone's friend Hekate as well as
the human Adonis, players uncover the true nature of Elysium as it inevitably
descends into civil war.
Each of the three episodes of The Fate of Atlantis will introduce new ability
enhancements related to the three branches of the skill tree – Hunter, Warrior
and Assassin. In this first episode, players will discover four new ability
- Ares Bull Charge is part of the Warrior branch of
the skill tree, and will summon a projectile that takes the form of a bull
charging forward. The projectile knocks down any enemy it hits and pierces
- Ares Madness, also part of the Warrior branch of
the skill tree, will allow players to have a new fighting set that
overpowers their enemies for a short period of time.
- Might of Artemis is part of the Hunter branch of
the skill tree. Enemies, when hit by the stun, automatically take critical
damage from any subsequent melee attack for the duration of the stun.
- Kronos Time Warp is part of the Assassin branch of
the skill tree. This ability will grant each head shot additional slowdown
time and higher damage, which is perfect for fighting enemies.
In order to play Fields of Elysium, 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
created specifically 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
enabling them to start their adventure into the afterlife with the Lost
Tales of Greece questline Heir of Memories. They will also have the
opportunity to choose their hero. However, contrary to the previous option,
player progression using the shortcut will not carry over to the main game
save, and they will not be able to obtain achievements.
