Assassin’s Creed Odyssey has been available for a month now, but Ubisoft is far from done with supporting the massive open-world action RPG.
In a new video today, developers from the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey team detailed the slew of new content that will be making its way into the game over the course of this month. For starters, a new series of quests and events will begin hitting Odyssey this month to give you a chance to interact with more characters in the world of Greece. One new quest in particular called “The Show Must Go On” finds your own version of Kassandra or Alexios filling the role of an actor and re-enacting the Battle of 300 in a play.
Also hitting Assassin’s Creed Odyssey this month will be new Epic mercenaries and Epic ships to hunt down. Taking down these foes will net you rewards such as new equipment and updated ship models. A new underworld set of gear has already found its way into Odyssey with a new set of wearables, a new ship design, new mount, and new weapons all arriving later in November.
One of the more noteworthy additions that Assassin’s Creed Odyssey will be receiving on November 13 is that of a new mythical creature to do battle with. This new beat, a Cyclops, will be available to fight in a new mission that will be added to your quest log. Taking down this creature will net you a new item as a reward.
As for other broad changes coming to Odyssey, Ubisoft will also be boosting the level cap greatly this month. The current cap locks at 50 but after a new update, it will be increased to level 70. Luckily, those who have already hit level 50 themselves will have all of the XP that they’ve gained since hitting the cap carry over to their character once the level cap is increased. In addition, players will now also be able to customize their gear more to their own visual liking via a new system that will be rolled out soon. Lastly, the costs to upgrade items are being nerfed, per fan feedback.
All in all, there are a ton of changes coming to Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and they all seem for the better. This continues to be one of my personal favorite games of 2018 and these new updates definitely make me want to dive back into the world of Greece sooner than I expected.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is available now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. If you’d like to hear more about all of the changes mentioned above, you can find Ubisoft’s new video at the bottom of the page.
