Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey is all set for its first DLC episode this coming week but it has received a major patch prior to that which has addressed several issues within the game, pertaining to post level 50 content and mastery. With the new patch, you can now spend ability points earned on additional stat bonuses which are linked to the three ability trees. This way, you now have more progression to work towards in the game, even if you had hit the cap before. Definitely something the completionists will dig.
The game is also giving players the ability to fast travel to mythical monsters in the game. The PC version specifically is getting a very interesting feature where you can set Alexios or Kassandra’s walking speed. Imagine that, the future of gaming is here lads.
There are a few more QoL changes that should’ve been a thing before, but better late than never right?
- Added an option to dismantle items directly at Blacksmiths.
- Wearing the full set of a Legendary Armor now gives more powerful bonus than the version available for engraving.
- Addressed a display issue that caused Stats upgrades to appear downgraded after Level 50.
- The Child of Poseidon achievement/trophy will now unlock when conditions are met.
The Assassin’s Creed subreddit has a host of other info on the fixes with the new patch, you can go check that out here. The first DLC is called Legacy of the First Blade and the first episode is set to release on December 4. And this begins Ubisoft’s plan to keep you playing this game for 6 months. Let’s see how that works out.
