Assassin’s Creed Odyssey: Torment of Hades Is Here


Assassin’s Creed Odyssey: Torment of Hades is now available, marking what is technically the fifth expansion for the critically acclaimed entry to the long-running franchise. Fields of Elysium launched two months ago, telling the story of the love triangle of greek gods Adonis, Aphrodite and Persephone as they battle for control over Elysium and entry into Hades.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey: Torment of Hades will be a much darker expansion than Fields of Elysium, sending players past the River Styx and into Hades itself to find familiar faces and formidable forces as you find new weapons and armor along the way. Expect plenty of combat and probably not much stealth, however players will find new abilities which they will be able to use upon returning to Ancient Greece.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’s Torment of Hades takes you to the Underworld to battle Cerberos, reunite with old friends, and outwit Hades himself. Discover devastating new skills and deadly new enemies in this gameplay preview of the second episode of The Fate of Atlantis story arc for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey post-launch content.

It’s unclear exactly how all of this ties in with the fate of the lost city of Atlantis, and hopefully Ubisoft is planning for an epic finale focusing more on the ancient technology discovered throughout Odyssey that players have loved finding in all Assassin’s Creed games and perhaps featuring more Isu, the ancient race that simply came… before.

Rocket Chainsaw reviewed Assassin’s Creed Odyssey at launch last year, giving it 4.5 stars, calling it “one of Ubisoft’s finest masterpieces.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey launched on October 5, 2018 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC platforms (and Switch in Japan). For more information, head to the official Assassin’s Creed website here.
