Assassin's Creed Odyssey is kicking off its second major DLC, The Fate of Atlantis, by sending players into the ancient Greek afterlife. The first of three episodes, Fields of Elysium, will launch on April 23.

You can check out the trailer above, which boasts the stunning backdrops we've come to expect from Assassin's Creed, as well as a suitably dramatic score. A seething Cerberus also makes an appearance. 

Fields of Elysium promises encounters with various mythical beasts and Greek gods and players should expect to face the forces of the Isu during the adventure. More legendary weapons and gear are up for grabs and new Ability enhancements will be introduced with the episode, allowing you to modify existing abilities to alter their function.

The Fate of Atlantis storyline starts after you've completed the main game and you'll need to complete the Between Two Worlds questline, along with the Heir of Memories and the Lost Tales of Greece questlines that follow. A character level of 28 or higher is also required. You can check the full details here.

The Fate of Atlantis DLC will continue with a second episode, Torment of Hades, and conclude with Judgement of Atlantis, completing the second story arc sometime this summer.

Sarah's earliest gaming memories involve playing Jet Set Willy on the ZX Spectrum at a friend's house. These days, and when not writing guides, most of her spare time goes into MMOs—though she's quite partial to JRPGs too. She has spent much of the last decade playing the likes of Star Wars: The Old Republic, TERA, Final Fantasy 14, and World of Warcraft. Sarah has been writing about games for several years and, before joining PC Gamer, freelanced for the likes of TechRadar, GamingBible, and Rock Paper Shotgun. One of her fondest hopes is to one day play through the ending of Final Fantasy X without breaking down into a sobbing heap. She probably has more wolves in Valheim than you.
