After a slew of post-launch treats and updates, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’s first DLC episode is now live. Hunted is the first episode in Legacy of the First Blade, a new storyline featuring legendary Assassin and wielder of the original hidden blade, Darius. Check out the launch trailer above. While Odyssey sees Ubisoft pushing Assassin’s Creed further and further from its roots, continuing Origins' efforts in transforming the series into a gargantuan RPG, Legacy of the First Blade is a nod to the past. If you’ve got a great memory, you might even remember Darius, or his statue at least, from Assassin’s Creed 2.
