The next major update for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, which launches on January 10, will let you set how intense the enemy scaling is, among various other additions.
Along with a look at the next installment in some of the game’s new and ongoing DLC questlines, the update adds a few new quality-of-life features. Hephaistos’s Workshop lets you review any engravings you’ve found or purchased before, while also buying new ones and enhancing current ones from Tier 6 to 7. He can be found in the Myson Cave in Malis.
You can now also tailor the enemy scaling to your liking. Across four settings, you’ll be able to set how intensely enemies scale to your level, ranging from heavy (“all enemies remain at your level”) to very light (“content is around four levels below your level”). The option won’t be available on the nightmare difficulty model, however.
The update also adds two new mercenary tiers make it an even tougher challenge to climb to the top of the ranks, a new boss fight against Arges the Cyclops (who drops a legendary weapon when defeated), Aya as lieutenant for the Adrestia, and more. Check out the full details here.
