Let's just be friends.

A patch that corrects Assassin’s Creed Odyssey straightwashing is available now, Ubisoft has confirmed.

Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey update 1.1.4 fixes the Shadow Heritage DLC, which drew ire for forcing players into heterosexual relationships, alongside the introduction of a New Game plus mode.

The changes made to the Shadow Heritage storyline will let players essentially dump and befriend Natakas or Neema making a baby. The changes mean that players won’t have to continue in a heterosexual relationship in the upcoming Bloodline DLC, which arrives on 5 March,
