Murderer’s Creed video games have been large dives into main moments of human civilization, with every title seldom crossing paths. Exterior of Easter eggs and mentions of the heroes who helped form historical past, the most important protagonists of Murderer’s Creed have by no means shared the identical highlight, however Ubisoft is about to vary all that with its very first Crossover Story.
Launching tomorrow, this free DLC might be obtainable to obtain and play with one story in Murderer’s Creed Odyssey and one in Murderer’s Creed Valhalla. Right here’s the whole lot it is advisable know and the way Ubisoft designed it to bridge the hole between two of its hottest Murderer’s Creed video games.
Each Murderer’s Creed recreation is headlined by distinctive characters, heroes who proceed an age-old battle with their very own sense of favor, character, and a expertise for acrobatic anarchy. Whereas each fan has their favourite Murderer, you’d be hard-pressed to seek out anybody extra in style than Murderer Creed Odyssey’s Kassandra, a straight-talking and hard-hitting mercenary from historical Greece.
By no means afraid to get her arms soiled, Kassandra’s journey in Murderer’s Creed Odyssey was the stuff of legend, cementing her place as among the finest protagonists in your complete sequence. That epic trek by way of the myths and legends of Greek tradition raised the bar for the Murderer’s Creed franchise in 2018. However in the event you’re one of many many followers who’ve longed to see extra of Kassandra, we now have excellent news: She’s making a comeback.
“After we take a look at all of the Murderer’s Creed content material launched, they’re all linked by characters, lore, places, and moments in historical past. Even after the video games are launched there are tales to inform, inquiries to be answered,” says Ubisoft Quebec Affiliate Inventive Director Clémence Nogrix.
“After we appeared on the most just lately launched video games and their place within the total world timeline, we noticed a chance to deliver again the highlight on a really distinctive character within the model, with Kassandra. Along with her immortality beginning in 431 BCE, the notion of reference to different video games began there, and we wanted to kickstart her new journey, a singular odyssey in a manner by asking ourselves ‘What did Kassandra do when she turned immortal?’ So we began with Murderer’s Creed Odyssey, and seeing as Murderer’s Creed Valhalla was probably the most just lately launched recreation, it was a chance to bridge each of them and reply the query ‘’What occurs when two Murderer’s Creed protagonists meet?’’.
Tomorrow, gamers can expertise this bold crossover occasion firsthand, one which bridges each the worlds of Murderer’s Creed Odyssey and Valhalla to inform a brand new story. Filling in one of many many gaps of Kassandra’s century-spanning life–play the Odyssey enlargement to learn how she completed that feat — the These Who Are Treasured DLC sees Kassandra on the hunt for an Isu artifact that has world-changing potential.
Going down after the occasions of Murderer’s Creed Odyssey, Kassandra (or Alexios in the event you performed the sport as her brother) has determined to take a well-earned relaxation, spending their days consuming tremendous wine and their nights gazing on the stars. That break from exploring previous tombs and battling historical monsters involves an finish although when previous associates come calling, and a brand new quest to get well a harmful relic of the previous units the hero on a brand new quest that takes them everywhere in the world.
That journey ultimately brings Kassandra (you received’t see Alexios making this journey) to the Isle of Skye in Murderer’s Creed Valhalla’s crossover story, A Fateful Encounter, the place she runs into Eivor. That first encounter will see the 2 warriors combat out their variations on the battlefield.
Whereas Valhalla’s half within the Crossover Story retains you firmly within the boots of Eivor, Kassandra’s affect performs a serious half within the story. Having lived for hundreds of years, Ubisoft wished the fan-favorite character to point out how a lot she had grown over the ages, with out dropping any of her attraction alongside the way in which.
“We needed to remember that Kassandra is over 1,300 years older,” says Nogrix of Kassandra and Eivor’s first encounter within the crossover. She has traveled the world and seen the rise and fall of the roman empire. We wished to make it possible for gamers felt she had realized and seen quite a bit, however that she was in a position to keep the identical at coronary heart. It was difficult in a manner that we have been attentive to every hero’s character, however we made positive they each confirmed what they have been made from on the battlefield. The staff did an incredible job with that encounter scene.”
