Re: Assassins Creed: Odyssey - 10/05/2018

I was long done with the main game in Origins before it's first DLC hit, so I was itching for more.
With this one, I'm not even halfway done with the main game, so no hurry for DLC, but increased level-cap will be cool.

Wonder what the DLC will be - for AC games, the DLC usually involves new areas instead of reusing existing ones.

Re: Assassins Creed: Odyssey - 10/05/2018

Well once again it's not a spoiler (as it's already been announced) but one DLC will focus on the Atlantis storyline. Lots of potential there. I actually LOVED the DLC for origins. The mythical types new locales were superb. Something along those lines will be very welcome.

Update: well I have been scratching my head a little the last few days as I have been at the level 70 cap for some time, but my XP gain stopped increasing about a third of the way up the bar. I just did a quick search and a few hours ago someone posted the same problem on the Ubi forums. Apparently a new patch for the gain hits tomorrow that might fix this. I hope so as I have lost a shit load of XP in the last few days due to this. Also, I noticed since the last update a glitch where the characters helmet no longer appears. Its weird.

First DLC out and I spent a little time on it. Seems more of the same so far. A new skill added as well that removes dead bodies. Shame not gonna be able to use it any time soon. After hitting the 70 cap nothing has been done about the 25 mill Levrl for each ability point from that point on. Utterly stupid move by Ubisoft, and hopefully they will rectify it soon. Its kinda defeating my desire to play the game if I can't level up at a reasonable rate. The Mastery points at this stage are just a complete waste of time.

Does the DLC have new areas, or is it inside the same Odyssey map, or a re-skinned one?

I didn't get a season pass/deluxe version of the game and decided to get the DLCs piecemeal (if their good), because I hate AC3 so much, I don't even want it for free.

It's the same map, not like Origins that had new areas to explore. There is a new branch of cultist types to kill, but only around 6. I never played AC3, so the season pass seemed worth it. Once I complete the DLC, which will probably be by the weekend, I will let you know if it's worth purchasing. So far its kinda meh.

That's a lot of money for the same map. True, the existing map is huge with a ton of potential, but Origins DLC seemed to give you more for your money (as have previous AC DLCs).

Re: Assassins Creed: Odyssey - 10/05/2018

So how does this DLC integrate into the game anyways?
Previous DLCs had you using the same character, so you just kept leveling up Bayek, for example. But if you're playing a different character here, what level do you start out at, 1? And what's the point of leveling up your current character if there's no additional content for him/her?

Re: Assassins Creed: Odyssey - 10/05/2018

Well the new DLC basically just looks like a new mission. On the Cult page you also have a new symbol which shows the several new cults types who need to be killed. They are supposed to fit more into the mythology of the AC series it seems. And you keep playing with your regular character. This is where the Mastery system is ineffective, if like me you have reached level 70, you have gained all possible abilities at this point, once you hit that level cap its a hell of a job just to get enough XP for one new ability point. I think the mastery skills have something like a total of 1400 ability points needed to gain them all. Times that by 25 million. And I spent hours and hours just to get 10 million. Forget it. I have not been playing as much simply because I feel like there is little point if my character has nowhere else to go. I will run through the DLC, but it not being a new area on the map also means I am not seeing anything new at this point. Its a bit of a let down after such a great game otherwise.

Really? How far are you in the game? When you finish one of the main missions, you’ll see a tab with the Cultists and how to unmask them.
