Assassins Creed Odyssey will be getting its November update later this month, and as part of it the games level cap is going up.
Currently, the level cap is set at Level 50, and Ubisoft has found that players are hitting that without even exploring half of the game. Thankfully, then, that level cap will be going up to Level 70; if you’re no good at maths, that’s a whopping 20 more levels for you to grind. For those that have been stuck at Level 50 for a while now, any XP that you’ve earned will be converted into ability points when the update goes live, so you haven’t wasted any of your time.
The update will also allow you to transmog your gear. What the bloody hell does that mean, I hear you cry? Let me explain – isn’t it lovely when you find that piece of gear that, not only improves your stats, but also looks bloody lovely? You’re stronger, but you also look cool. But then, some new gear comes along; better gear, stronger gear, but it looks naff. What do you do? You want to be stronger and tougher, but you have a reputation to uphold, you want to keep that snazzy outfit on that you’ve grown attached to. Transmogging allows you to do that, as it basically allows you to change your appearance separately to the items that you’re wearing. Basically, you can keep your cool outfit on, but you get the better gear stats.
This update will follow on from last weeks update, which added the first free DLC—The Lost Tales of Greece—as well as a number of quality of life improvements. We were slightly critical of Assassins Creed Odyssey in our review, but it’s clear to see that Ubisoft intends to support the game and continually improve it moving forward.
