The November update for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is here, and it changes the game pretty significantly. There’s a ton here to unpack, so let’s get started.
The big changes this time around center on the loot and leveling systems in-game. First of all, Ubisoft is adding on to The Lost Tales of Greece quests, which expand more on fan-favorite characters in the game like Leonidas. These new quests include some new challenges and boss fights will be sure to push players in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey to the limit. And Ubisoft has made sure to adjust the in-game level cap to level 70 in order to account for these new end-game challenges.
The update even includes some new cosmetic microtransactions. These new “Visual Customization” systems allow players to customize the look of their armors to make them look more visually appealing. These Transmog systems will allow those players that enjoy these systems
In terms of other changes, the UI in various areas has been tweaked to make it much more streamlined. Various combat mechanics have been adjusted, for example, NPCs no longer set players on fire accidentally. Photo Mode has been fine-tuned, and the issues that have prevented the Mercenary Live Events from appearing have been fixed.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey was released on PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One in early October, and has since then earned high praise in reviews. And although some gamers aren’t happy with the microtransactions and allege that the game was overly grindy, it’s still holding strong in sales, and appears to be well-received.
And this new patch is just the start of Ubisofts plans for the post-launch plans for the game. As the months roll on, we’ll see more content added to the game as DLC and in-game events. The next major update is a new mission set called Legacy of the First Blade.
