And there’s 50% off the season pass too.
Are you looking to make your Assassin’s Creed Odyssey play-through somehow even longer? Then you might be interested to know that the first episode of the game’s Fate of Atlantis story expansion is currently free on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
Fate of Atlantis, if you’re unfamiliar, jettisons any pretence at historical accuracy, instead setting players loose in a sprawling world inspired by Greek mythology. While later episodes shift the action to the Underworld and, eventually, Atlantis itself, Episode 1 kicks off the fantastical action with a jaunt through the afterlife and the, perhaps slightly sinister, paradise of Elysium.
Eurogamer’s resident Assassin’s Creed aficionado Tom Phillips had plenty of positive words for Fate of Atlantis’ grandly ambitious narrative and diverse settings, all of which helped create an assured denouement for the game – a relief following on from the clumsily handled story beats of the preceding Legacy of the First Blade season pass arc.
Those wishing to draw their own conclusions can download Fate of Atlantis Episode 1, Fields of Elysium, for free until 1st September. The offer is open to anyone (Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’s base game is required to play) via Uplay for PC and the Xbox and PlayStation stores.
If you’re impressed enough to want to play through the whole thing, there’s currently 50% off Odyssey’s season pass – which includes the Legacy of the First Blade and Fate of Atlantis DLCs, plus Assassin’s Creed 3 Remastered – until 2nd September. And those that don’t already have it can pick up the base game for half price right now.
