Ubisoft is offering another major update for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Patch 1.2.0 coming April 4 and supporting the second upcoming DLC ​​and free quests Lost Tales of Greece. Most importantly, it introduces Gear Loadout functionality and fixes a ton of bugs with missions from both the original game and the first DLC!

Ubisoft is almost ready with the first episode of the second DLC The Fate of Atlantis – Fields of Elysium. It arrives on April 23 and patch 1.2.0 adds support. This probably means that we won’t be seeing any other game updates this month, making it the “April update” for the game.

The lost stories of Greece continue as usual with support for upcoming quests added in this patch as well. A small but useful change has been made that allows you to see these quests highlighted in the quest log now. In addition, if a quest from these series is not currently in your journal, it will still appear blue, as it should be, instead of white.

The best part of patch 1.2.0, for me at least, is the Gear Gearouts. This new feature allows you to switch seamlessly between prepared versions (uploads) on the fly. You will find the loading locations in the inventory, on the left side of your screen. Note that unlocking a new loading location will cause you to retreat a considerable amount of drachmas.

The best part of the patch notes lists a number of mission bug fixes and various other issues. If you have had a problem with a specific quest before and were unable to complete it for any reason, it is likely that this problem has been resolved now.

One of the most pressing problems of Update 1.1.4, when New Game Plus (NG +) was introduced, is now fixed. When you get a new legendary item, which is identical to an item you already own in the original game (usually cult and other reward weapons), the item will replace your old one, as it should be, instead of disappearing.

The size of the update is around 4 GB, with small differences for the three platforms for which it is available: PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Below you can see the full patch notes.
