If you're looking for a more opinionated take on Assassin's Creed Odyssey, I played the game for about 8 hours last week and came away with a whole bunch of new impressions, majority being positive. Launching in December, Legacy of the First Blade will reveal more about the history that led to the formation of the Assassins.

But that's not all the season pass offers, it's just a bit of a sweetener, similar to Far Cry 3 in Far Cry 5's DLC bundle.

Story Arc II is titled "The Fate of Atlantis" and takes you to the fabled sunken city where you'll uncover its secrets and face godly creatures in a "surprising saga full with twists and turns" that takes you closer to Greek mythology and the First Civilisation.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey will have players become a legendary Spartan. "Each story arc will launch as a series of episodic adventures, with new episodes releasing approximately every six weeks". Even if you don't purchase the season pass, all Assassin's Creed Odyssey players will get access to free story content like the "Lost Tales of Greece" and timed in-game events.

Recurring In-Game Events: Each week a new epic ship or mercenary will appear, presenting players with challenging battles as they hunt down these powerful enemies. Daily and weekly contracts will send players on new quests across Greece.

Furthermore, the Discovery Tour first introduced in Assassin's Creed Origins will also return for Odyssey, enabling you to roam Ancient Greece at your leisure without combat or gameplay restraints and learn all manner of historical facts.

Many more updates: New monstrous and mythical creatures to defeat and a New Game Plus mode presenting new challenges and the ability to see how different choices affect players' stories.

The Assassin's Creed III remaster will also be available standalone for PC, PS4, and Xbox One when it goes live in March, Ubisoft said. Those who own the Collectors and Ultimate Editions will be granted three days early, starting October 2.
