Assassin’s Creed Crossover Stories asks the very big question of, “What happens when two Assassin’s Creed heroes meet?”
Over the past two decades many games and media have combined successful intellectual properties together to forge a lovechild of their two original ideas. We got great things out of putting two or more stuff together like Marvel VS Capcom, The Marvel Cinematic Universe, Super Smash Bros., The Spider-verse, The Kingdom Hearts series, Space Jam.
Ubisoft, not to be left out, has decided as well that now is the time to answer the big, “What If…?” question but towards their very own Assassin’s Creed series. Assassin’s Creed Crossover Stories is a new set of DLC available free for both Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and laying additional groundwork for the Ubisoft Extended Universe that connects multiple franchises together.
You can download the free DLC within their respective games and play the designated quests assigned to them. A few requirements must be met before you can run these crossover events however just to make sense of the story.
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla players must have reached Level 4 Settlement and completed the “A Wise Friend” quest in game. Once you do, the “A Fated Encounter” crossover event should become available.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey players must complete Chapter 1 and reach Megaris to access the content, “Those Who Are Treasured.” However, it is highly recommended that players finish the main game’s three story arcs (Family, Cult of Kosmos and Mythology) to avoid spoilers.
If you missed it, this year is Ubisoft’s 35th year anniversary. With that in mind Assassin’s Creed Odyssey will be available to play for free for a limited time starting on the 16th up to the 19th of December. It’ll be available on Playstation 4, Xbox One, Stadia and Windows PC through the Ubisoft Store and Steam. Some discounts for the game are available too, for up to 75% off discounts so you can keep your progression from the free to play weekend.
Ubisoft is currently developing a live service incarnation of Assassin’s Creed going by the name of Assassin’s Creed: Infinity. You can read about it here.
