Get Assassin's Creed Odyssey Fields of Elysium for Free

Ubisoft announces that Fields of Elysium, the first episode of The Fate of Atlantis expansion for Assassin's Creed Odyssey is free to keep for those who pick up their copy between now and September 1st (thanks DSOGaming). According to the announcement, you can get the PC version through Uplay, Steam, and the Epic Games Store. While we can find a listing for The Fate of Atlantis on the Uplay Store, we see no individual listing for Fields of Elysium. Update: Here's the Uplay link (thanks Orogogus). As for the Epic Games Store, we can't even find a listing there for the base game, so we're not sure what to make of that. But this is now available with its 100% discount on Steam, so one two out of three isn't bad. Here's word:
Assassin's Creed Odyssey took a big step into Greek myth this year with The Fate of Atlantis, a three-part post-launch story arc that brought Alexios or Kassandra into the Greek afterlife – and, eventually, to the titular lost city of Atlantis, once a teeming center of the mysterious First Civilization. If you haven't yet begun your journey into The Fate of Atlantis, its first episode – titled Fields of Elysium – is free from August 26 through September 1. During that period, players can download and keep Fields of Elysium on PS4, Xbox One, and PC (via Uplay, Steam, or the Epic Games Store).

Fields of Elysium transports players to Greek mythology's equivalent of heaven, a vibrant paradise of white cliffs and flowering meadows presided over by the Greek goddess Persephone (actually a member of the First Civilization, or Isu). However, this seeming utopia hides dark secrets and super-powered enemies, as well as treasure-filled labyrinths and four new enhancements for your Abilities, which let you wield the powers of the Isu in battle.

Once downloaded, Fields of Elysium is open to Assassin's Creed Odyssey players who've reached at least level 28 and finished the Between Two Worlds questline, along with the Heir of Memories questline. Players who want to jump straight into Fields of Elysium's content, meanwhile, can take a shortcut option and begin playing with a pre-leveled character (although you'll still need the Assassin's Creed Odyssey base game to play). Should you decide to continue your journey by purchasing The Fate of Atlantis or the Season Pass, any character progression or loot you earn in Fields of Elysium will carry over into the second and third episodes, Torment of Hades and Judgment of Atlantis.

Fields of Elysium is pretty fun, especially because you can get fairly different endings (for the NPCs, not for yourself) depending on your decisions. It's also beautiful, excellent for screenshots.

I think the Atlantis episode is cooler (if shorter), but this is a solidly good DLC.

I haven't gotten very far into the game (just got through the tutorial for the land grabs), and while hanging off Zeus Testicles was fun, does the story pick up? AC:Egypt was ok, but I really had to push myself to finish the game.

Yeah, I mean, right now you've literally seen 2% of the story. So it definitely does pick up, although it's not going to reach earth-shattering heights or anything.

I actually thought the story in the last 3pack of DLCs was better than in the main campaign.

I feel like the weird end/post game shit with Pythagoras is pretty awesome. But I liked most of it... usually burn out is self inflicted when I'm trying to clear islands/teritories for OCD reasons. Just go do a fucking assasination/story mission and it's all good! Like with Witcher/Skyrim, almost everything is optional.

The freeform assasinations themselves are the best the games have seen. Good variety, not as bespoke as some previous but definately more flexible and numerous. (Often there is a reason/clues for limited aproach targets).

Sometimes you pull off a brilliant stab and gone act, often it's a shitshow, but the combat is better than any other supersized open world game I can remember so it's all good. Traversal is good as well but nobody is ever going to beat Saints Row 4 at that, which was a much smaller game anyway.

The interactions/conversations? Well it's super basic outside of the usual monologues from historical celebrities. It's not going for the quality of witcher or bland quality of a bethsoft title, it's usually just a little decision tree to help work some context out of the stabbing. But some character moments are outstanding. That kid on crete is brilliant, and shoving the cyclopses eye up the goats ass and other bestiality gags are all refreshingly repugnant.

Whatever it's flaws and liberties taken, no game has done Pellopenesian War greece this good. Athens is shockingly good to clamber about in, the regional stuff is usually interesting for at least a character or historical or cultural lesson. Bayek from Origins rules, and as a character was a lot more interesting than Kassandra, but she has her own "Get paid, get laid!" no nonsense sytle, and I think Odyssey is the better game.
