Kicking off with missions, there will be two missions that will be added to the game: The Show Must Go On and Lost Tale of Greece, Divine Intervention. The first mission will have you pose as King Leonidas during the Battle of 300 for a theatrical act. The second will place you a set of trials that will take action and bravery to complete.
Ubisoft has also added Epic Events to the world of Ancient Greece to even out the odds against the descendent of Leonidas. Both epic mercenaries and ships will roam throughout the world, so watch out as they will be tough to defeat. On top of the intense combat already mentioned, Steropes the Cyclops has appeared and will need a high level character to defeat the mythical creature.
