Including new DLC and level scaling.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey January 2019 content was today detailed by Ubisoft.
In terms of DLC, the second episode of Legacy of the First Blade will be available from 15 January. To access the content, you’ll need to have completed the first DLC episode, Hunted, as well as the main game’s Chapter 7 questline, Naxos.
A new legendary Cyclops Arges known as the Bright One will offer the chance to obtain the Hammer of Hephaistos. You’ll find the new foe “on a Volcanic island in the Angry Caldera of Arges,” Ubisoft said, adding that players need to be at level 50 before attempting the feat.
Additionally, “the fourth and fifth episodes of the free content The Lost Tales of Greece, respectively named ‘The Daughters of Lalaia’ and ‘A Poet’s Legacy’, will be available in January,” Ubisoft added.
Perhaps the best part of new January content is the ability to customise level scaling. “Visit the options menu to find it; from there players will be able to customize how drastically the enemies will scale to their level,” Ubisoft said of the feature. “The option will not be available in Nightmare Difficulty mode to maintain its challenging nature.”
Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey is currently available on Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4.
