The old man and the sea.
The second episode of Assassin's Creed Odyssey's Legacy of the First Blade DLC, Shadow Heritage follows faithful formula Ubisoft, described in Episode 1
Shadow Heritage does a good, subtle job of home to its themes.
The majority of its plot is about The Tempest, Shadow Heritage's new mythical tyrannical antagonist, Master Naval Commander and part of the Great Order, the next branch of cultures to dismantle, although I did not eventually find her threatening as the Huntsman of Episode 1, The Tempest sets the stage for a maritime centric episode where ship-to-ship ship fight gets an equal share of billing and you get a new tool like terrorizing the Aegean: a surprisingly devastating frontal flamethrower.
But Shadow Heritage does a good, subtle job of home-based issues – as many characters come Expressed by what kind of life they want for themselves with the time they have left, this allows for some touching personal reflections along with some surprisingly light-hearted moments, but as it is tradition in Odyssey, just so many of these moments delivered over the top.
Shadow Heritage takes place exclusively in the sunny region of Achaia.
And in the same way as episode 1 – you can see the pattern yet – Shadow Heritage takes place entirely in an area: this time it is Summery region Achaia, its coastline and the glassy water that surrounds it, but as episode 1 is Macedonia-focused experience, your mileage may vary depending on how much time you've already spent there.
Finally, Shadow Heritage adds a new skill to Hunter Skill Tree called Rapid Fire, so you can consume adrenaline to fire your bow in quick succession – this is another tool in the mercenary toolbox, although I didn't find it particularly useful, but outside a few new legendary weapons and the aforementioned flamethrower, the biggest change introduced to the gameplay.
