It’s going to introduce Darius, the first person to ever wield the iconic hidden blade. Since it takes place during the main game’s story, a lot of people are wondering how to start Legacy of The First Blade DLC quest in AC Odyssey. That’s exactly what we’re going to show you in this guide.

Where to find Legacy of The First Blade starting quest?

In the previous game, you automatically got a quest that would lead you to a particular NPC. He or she would take you to the new map and let you enjoy the expansion. This time, the DLC is part of the main map. There’s no new region to explore – instead, the developers decided to enrich one of the underutilised areas of the existing map. It’s Makedonia, the peninsula in the far north of the game’s world.

There is a gate though – you won’t be able to access the DLC quest until you’ve completed chapter 7 and played through the events on the island Naxos. You’ll also have to be at least level 29. Once you’ve fulfilled both of these prerequisites, simply go to Makedonia. Your hero should notice some changes. From there on, the game will lead you down the intended path. The game will give you a quest called The Horsemen Cometh, which starts in the Ship Dock in western Chalkidike, in Makedonia.

Of course, you can also leave it until after you’ve finished the game. The new story is relatively independent from the main one. It does tie into the events of AC Odyssey, but it doesn’t require much previous knowledge. As the game won’t let you play it before you’ve gotten a broader sense of the world, there’s no reason to worry about stumbling into things you’re not supposed to see, or aren’t prepared to find out.

How to install Legacy of The First Blade DLC on PS4?

Although in the game it will say the DLC is installed you have to actually go to the Playstation Store and download the add-on before you can play it. Thanks to Marcos who pointed this fact out in the comments. There was a patch deployed today on PS4 that makes you believe you already have the First Blade DLC installed when you look in the in-game store. Once you load up your game and go to Macedonia the quest won’t trigger. This is because you have to actually download the First Blade DLC from the Playstation Store first. The best way to do this for me was to go to the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey icon on the PS4 home screen. Go down into the details of the game and there should be a link to the add-on section in the PS store. You should now see the First Blade DLC available as free to Season pass holders to the right. Click on it with X and you should be taken to the store page where you’ll have the download button. Once you download it start the game and then you’ll be able to activate the quest.

    For ps4 with season pass in the game menu it might says the dlc is installed but you actually have to go to the store and download it

    1. O

      I can’t download it. It says not available for purchase because I already have the story pass (season pass). Suggestions?

      1. Z

        There is 2 once is the dlc the other is the first episode. Choose the first episode one it’s like 2.7 gigs

        1. O

          By uninstalling and reinstalling the game does that lose all of my progress? I’ve finished the game and killed all the members so I wouldn’t want to lose any of that!

          1. D

            You probably figured it out a long time ago, but for the record: No, uninstalling a game will not make you lose progress. The game software installed on your console and your saves are completely separate files. As long as you don’t go out of your way to delete the save files, you’ll always have them and you can uninstall/re-install the game as many times as you want.

        1. A

          This is a perfect description on how to download it, I was so confused and frustrated with all the other instructions. Thanks so much Lori

      4. R

        It said the same for me. What you need to do is go to your home screen, go to odyssey icon and press the down button to go in details. Go to the bottom where it says playstationtm store, press right key and then once you are in the add on menu click on the dlc and download it from there.

      Bro you gotta understand this is on Ps, and the fact that this is probably the greatest AC since brotherhood. Don’t be so quick to judge, you probably just don’t like having to explore and extend the gameplay rather than it spelling it out for you

      Tell me about it, have the Xbox and have completed the game. With no link on the game or DLC. As i remember there was also issues on Orgins .

    3. C

      don’t believe you

    I have the season pass and have downloaded it from the store on ps4 but it has still not shown up yet

    In trying to figure out why I can’t access the DLC despite downloading from the store I went to my system storage to uninstall and reinstall the game to see if that would make it work only to find that in the installed Add-Ons tab there appears a lock next to The Blade of Darius. I take this to mean that despite having a season pass and it existing in the store for download that it is still seemingly inaccessible to PS4 players, in the US at the very least.

    1. J

      I have the same “lock” symbol in my system storage section

      This is a psn problem. I had to restore my licenses and then it worked just fine.

  5. C

    Thank you for directing PS4 people to go to the store and download (what should have auto downloaded). I spent the last 45 minutes or more trying to get a starting quest, going to Makedonia, seeing the content listed as installed, etc. I wish I came across your article first.

  6. S

    For those who have a lock next to there dlc in storage just restart your xbox or playstation worked for me

  7. A

    Found that by restoring my licenses through PS4 account management I was able to unlock the “Blade of Darius” add on.

    Still no DLC or link on the game. I am on Xbox, have ifnshed everything on the game, including the map. Ubisoft jokes just like Orgins . I have done a hard reset., but am not reinstalling the game.

    I can not open the dlc. I have downloade it twice. For two days its been saying waiting to install.

    1. G

      Did it ever work? Were you ever able to play it?

  11. N

    Holy **** thank’s for pointing out the *dl in the ps store* thing! I was really sad not being able to start it and didn’t found this information before

  12. G

    I have the Ac odyssey cd, and for some reason it says it’s downloading but when it finishes, I go to ps notifications and it says waiting to install. When I press start, it says application not found, and it acts like I must download ac odyssey from the ps store.

  13. J
