Legacy of the First Blade: Hunted is a brief but welcome new slice of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey that sets the stage for the more traditional Assassins-versus-Templars-style micro-drama that was mostly missing from the base game. Though it's isolated to a single region and only gives you a handful of targets, an intriguing villain and the backstory of new characters sets a good foundation for more Assassin’s Creed Odyssey – which is always a good thing.
In terms of delivering more quality Assassin’s Creed content to the player, Legacy of the First Blade succeeds in the way you would have expected it to, delivering similar mechanics and adding a few neat new wrinkles here and there. Narratively though, the DLC is a missed opportunity, and for anyone with even the vaguest investment in Odyssey’s story, to say nothing of the series’ larger lore, that will probably nag at your enjoyment quite a bit.
There's not a whole load different when compared to the base game, but the first episode of Legacy of the First Blade does a good job at introducing new elements - like gear and the Persian threat - while also building on the same foundations already laid out. It's a promising start from a narrative perspective, as we're already intrigued as to what other webs we get tangled in with the Order of the Ancients, and we're sure that more challenges will emerge as the story goes on.
