'Assassin's Creed Odyssey' Just Got Free Story DLC

Assassin's Creed Odyssey is getting a free story expansion that will continue Kassandra's journey across Ancient Greece - and beyond.

Announced last night, Ubisoft is releasing an all-new DLC quest for the 2017 game as part of a new series of 'Crossover Stories'. These are new adventures designed to bring together Assassins from different eras of the series' long history, the publisher explains in a blog post.

Take a look at the reveal trailer below!

The first of these Crossover Stories will bring Kassandra face-to-face (and blade-to-blade) with Eivor, the Viking hero of 2020's Assassin's Creed Valhalla. This story will be told across two unique quests - one in Odyssey, and one in Valhalla.

"Assassin’s Creed games have been massive dives into major moments of human civilization, with each title seldom crossing paths," Ubisoft writes.

"Outside of Easter eggs and mentions of the heroes who helped shape history, the major protagonists of Assassin’s Creed have never shared the same spotlight, but Ubisoft is about to change all that with its very first Crossover Story. "

Available to download right now, 'Those Who Are Treasured' is a brand-new story quest for Odyssey set after the events of the main game. It will see Kassandra (or Alexios if you chose poorly) exploring the world in search of a powerful and potentially dangerous Isu artefact.

Kassandra's story will then continue into a second free quest which is available to download in Valhalla. In 'A Fateful Encounter', Eivor will meet the hero of Odyssey for the very first time as the hunt for the Isu artefact nears its end.

“We had to keep in mind that Kassandra is over 1,300 years older,” explained Ubisoft Quebec associate creative director Clémence Nogrix.

"She has traveled the world and seen the rise and fall of the roman empire. We wanted to make sure that players felt she had learned and seen a lot, but that she was able to stay the same at heart. It was challenging in a way that we were attentive to each hero’s personality, but we made sure they both showed what they were made of on the battlefield. The team did an amazing job with that encounter scene.”

Both new quests are available to download on all platforms right now.
