Assassin's Creed Odyssey Season Pass Includes Assassin's Creed III Remastered

Assassin's Creed Odyssey is nearly here and though fans of the franchise have so much to look forward to already, Ubisoft just drastically upped the hype levels with post-launch stories on the way - including the hidden blade's origins - and what the Season Pass will entail.

There's a catch though, it's cloud-based, and the announcement was only made on the Japanese version of the Nintendo Direct, meaning Assassin's Creed Odyssey Cloud Version is a Japan exclusive.

Story Arc 1 - Legacy of the First Blade: This episodic adventure will introduce players to the first hero to wield the iconic hidden blade, changing the course of history. The Fate of Atlantis will have players "confront godly creatures and uncover the secrets of the legendary sunken city [of Atlantis]" beginning in Spring 2019. This remaster will be released in March 2019 and can be purchased outside of the season pass for an as-of-yet unannounced price. Remastered will include all of the DLC released for the Xbox 360 version of the title - "The Benedict Arnold Missions", "Hidden Secrets Pack", and "Tyranny of King George" - as well as Assassin's Creed Liberation Remastered.

Remakes never seem to be as good as the originals, so if the civil war now brewing in the United States isn't doing much for you then you'll be able to relive the American Revolution in Assassin's Creed III Remastered, which is being included in the season pass Assassin's Creed Odyssey.

Free episodic quest lines will release regularly in-between episodes, providing a constant flow of new stories for players to discover. Which will you play first: the brand new game or the remastered classic? Gameplay mechanics and ergonomics have also been improved.

Weekly and daily "contracts" will be handed out, and players will have to track down an epic mercenary or ship to defeat.

Discovery Tour: The educational tool will let players explore the game world in a conflict-free environment and learn about Ancient Greece's monuments, culture and history.

Future Updates: These updates will include monstrous and mythical creatures to battle, a New Game Plus mode presenting new challenges and the ability to see how different choices affect players' stories and many more.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey is due out for PlayStation 4, PC, Switch, and Xbox One on October 5. Some of the digital bundles have an early access perk that will allow you to start playing on October 2.
