In this guide, we explain how you can access the DLC Crossover Stories for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and Odyssey, what requirements there are, and in what order you should play them since the story is divided between the two games.
The latest free DLC for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla came as a surprise, as it is a crossover with Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. Kassandra and Eivor, the protagonists of the last two Assassin’s, are found in Assassin’s Creed Crossover Stories, each kitty DLC for both Valhalla and Odyssey.
These are free expansions, so do not expect more than two or three hours of play on each title, but it is very interesting to see how the points of view of Eivor (he or she interchangeably) and Kassandra (she is the canonical character collide ).
As this is a shared story between the two games, it can be confusing, especially if you have both games and want to play both: how do you access the missions, and in what order?
Assassin’s Creed Crossover Stories: In What Order to Play AC Valhalla and Odyssey DLCs
If you only have Valhalla or if you only have Odyssey, you can play their respective DLC without fear of not understanding the story, since they also take place on different islands: Corfu in Odyssey, Skye in Valhalla.
That said, if you have both games, it is recommended that you start with the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey DLC, as it better establishes the reason for this encounter of two characters separated by more than a thousand years, and it is the logical temporal order (AC Odyssey came out two years before, and it is set 13 centuries before, after all).
I haven’t finished AC Odyssey and / or Valhalla, can I play the DLCs?
The answer is yes, both from a narrative and a technical point of view.
Now we will explain the requirements to be able to access the crossover missions and where to find them, but first, we want to make it clear that, although it is not essential to have finished the respective games to understand the story, it is, obviously, highly recommended to get all the references and don’t do “auto spoilers” of games, especially in Kassandra’s story.
That said, these are missions not directly related to the main story, and seeing the two characters interact is already a source of enjoyment.
How to start the DLC in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
Make sure in both cases that the game is updated to the latest version. It is not necessary to have passed the story, in fact, the only thing you should have completed is Chapter 1 of the story and have reached Megáride.
From there you must go to the port of Sami in Kefalonia, and look for the mission ” Who we love ” to go to Korfu.
How to start the DLC in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
In AC Valhalla you need to raise the settlement to level 4 and have completed the Valka missions so that it will settle in Ravensthorpe.
Once that is done, you will find Edys, a friend of Valka, who will take you on the mission ” A Fated Encounter ” and will start the crossover on the Isle of Skye.
