Beginning in December 2018, the episodes of this story arc will tell players about the history of the Assassins and why they prefer to attack from the shadows rather than face their enemies head on.

The Legacy of the Blade will center on the story of the iconic weapon that the Kassandra (or Alexios) uses and how it came to be in her possession.

The Fate of Atlantis, as the name implies, is focused on the lost city of legend.

In addition, Season Pass holders will receive a copy of Assassin's Creed Remastered as part of the purchase price. Aside from the expected story expansions, players will also get Assassin's Creed III Remastered.

Something to look forward to: Ubisoft announced the post-launch content coming down the pipe for Assassin's Creed Odyssey. This version of the title will feature improved gameplay mechanics and ergonomics, and a new graphics engine with enhancements like higher resolution textures, and 4K and HDR output for Xbox One X owners.

Free episodic quest lines will release regularly in-between episodes, providing a constant flow of new stories for players to discover.

Assassin's Creed III was first released in 2012 and followed the half-English, half-Mohawk Connor (real name: Ratonhnhaké:ton - try saying that five times quickly) as he played a pivotal role in the American Revolution. It will also be hosting a number of in-game events that everybody can participate in including daily quests and unique and challenging enemies. Ubisoft says it wants to provide "a continual stream of new content to all players, with quests that feature new and familiar characters". Discovery Tour will educate players about ancient Greece's monuments, history, and culture. This confirmed that Assassin's Creed: Odyssey is indeed launching on Switch simultaneously with the other versions. Many more updates, including 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.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on October 5. Those who own the Collectors and Ultimate Editions will be granted three days early access, starting October 2.
