In what we might be able to consider Triple-A gaming's best experiment, Ubisoft has re-highlighted its January update plans around Assassin's Creed Odyssey -- a game that has so much planned post-release content support, it's kind of making the opposition look stupid.
"Episode 2 of the first DLC" is already a mouthful, but that's exactly what Odyssey players can expect this month as Ubisoft drops "Shadow Heritage" on January 15.
Continuing the story arc from the first episode, in the second installment players get to investigate a blockade initiated by the Order of the Ancients around the port city in Achaia. To have access to the second episode, players must have finished the first episode, Hunted, of the DLC, completed the Naxos questline in Chapter 7 of the main story and reached character level 28 or above.
Ubi has also politely reminded us that both the fourth and fifth episodes of The Lost Tales of Greece -- the free content available to all, are also out this month.
To start A Poet’s Legacy, players need to reach Chapter 5 of the main story and make their way to the Boetia region. The first quest is called “Praxilla’s Admirer”, and we recommend that your minimum Level is 34.
A new Cyclops named Arges will be added to the game, with a recommended level of 50, while new items and features are also in the January pipeline:
The Dionysos Pack contains a gear set, mount and a legendary dagger. As always, this pack will be available in the store and at the Oikos of the Olympians at the same time.
In addition, the Athena Character & Naval Pack will arrive later this month.
The new title update will bring to the game one of the most requested feature: the Level Scaling setting. Visit the options menu to find it; from there players will be able to customize how drastically the enemies will scale to their level. The option will not be available in Nightmare Difficulty mode to maintain its challenging nature.
Two new tiers will be added to the Mercenary Ladder.
A new vendor will be added to the game. Hephaistos’ Workshop can be found in the Myson Cave in the Malis region.
