Assassin's Creed Odyssey Story Creator Mode Being Changed to Prevent XP Farming

Sorry no free XP for you Kassandra. You'll have to stab those Spartans the old fashioned way

Ubisoft is taking action against players who are using Assassin's Creed Odyssey's Story Creator mode to exploit the game's character levelling system. As detailed in a post over on the Odyssey forums, Ubisoft plans on changing the way that Story Creator Mode functions to discourage any experience farming quests. Unfortunately, numerous first quests to be made were specifically for XP farming, allowing players to quickly level up with very little effort, which is something Ubisoft is now cracking down on.

However, the publisher's official stance is that the "exploits risk jeopardizing the overall quality, integrity, and objective of Story Creator Mode". Players who continue to use the tool in this way will be banned.

Consequently, Ubisoft says it's now working on a number of "fixes and adjustments" to shift "the focus back to the tool's intended design and use". It's a possibility, but flooding the recommendations screen with monotonous and uninspired quests flies in the face of everything Story Creator Mode hopes to accomplish. In addition to future updates not yet specified solutions are being offered.


Not a fan of farming " However, since the launch of the beta we have noticed an increasing flow of "farming quests", that exploit the tool to get large amounts of XP.

A better question might be this: how will Ubisoft's decision affect the game itself? "This wisdom literally opens new doors, as each knowledge tier you attain lets you pass through certain gated barriers, which in turn lets you access more insights and more powerful loot". It wants to reward creativity and will be issuing a fix to prevent these XP farming creations from being so effective. For more general Assassin's Creed: Odyssey news, keep an eye on the game's website. I bought the boost like many and it made the game much more enjoyable. Outside of the Hidden Blade and Atlantis stories, the company also released a fully remastered version of Assassin's Creed III and Assassin's Creed III: Liberation, plus a host of free content including the episodic Lost Tales of Greece missions.
