Here’s a look at the new content, features and changes Ubisoft will bring to Assassin’s Creed Odyssey in February 2019: a new Lost Tales of Greece quest, a new Game + mode, a new maximum level, many new Fast locations Travel, new Mercenary levels, in-game store packs and much more! We are going to take a look!
THE LOST TALES OF GREECE: THE SEDUCTION OF A BROTHER
In the next episode of The Lost Tales of Greece Free DLC content, you will meet a “lost poet” who will take you to the port of Kechries where you will have to help two brothers to cope with the recent death of their father. Unfortunately, your presence inspires sibling rivalry as they compete for your affections, and it is up to you to unravel this family drama.
A Brother’s Seduction is now available in the game. For the start-up mission to appear for you, you must have completed Chapter 5 of the main storyline of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. This requirement is the same for all Lost Tales of Greece quests.
This time the starting mission is called “The Return of the Prodigal Son”. and is available in Korinthia. All quests in the series are always marked with blue icons for easy identification.
NEW GAME + AND NEW LEVEL CAP
Many of you have asked for it and Ubisoft has finally added it! The new Game + (NG +) mode arrives in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey with update 1.1.4 later in February 2019.
NG + allows you to start the game from the start and make new and different choices, while keeping all your levels, equipment, upgrades, abilities, money, mounts, etc. hard earned.
To access New Game +, you must have completed the main Story Arc. A new option in the menu allows you to copy your eligible backup game as New game +. You can switch from one character to the other if you want to discover the different voiceovers and gameplay. To start an NG +, simply choose a valid safe location and use the newly available button to copy this backup location and make it NG +. You will never lose your usual game progress. NG + will be saved separately in a different file / location.
The current ceiling level of 70 appears to be too low, it seems. Ubisoft increases the maximum level to 99 with update 1.1.4. This change is also accompanied by a number of other benefits to compensate for the more grid you will have to do to reach the ceiling.
In addition to the new level limit, two additional levels of mercenaries are also added – 10% more Orichalcum and a higher epic equipment drop rate. Be careful though. The mercenaries of these levels are of high level. You may need to reach their level and their equipment before you start climbing to the new peak.
Three additional engraving levels will be available on Hephaestus workshop. Also new Ship improvements will be made available. As in the previous update, these would most likely be additional levels to the already existing benefits. Upgrading them shouldn’t require any unique items, except for standard crafting materials.
NEW QUICK TRAVEL POINTS
Have you ever felt like you were crossing ancient Greece too slowly? Were you frustrated by the long rides in the back of your horse or by racing from point A to point B and then being sent back to point A? Ubisoft recognized your frustration and introduced 22 new Fast Travel points to the game. Most of them will be placed near ports and harbors, so you’ll also have quick and easy access to Adrestia (your ship) faster.
