Ubisoft has recently addressed an exploit in the Story Creator Mode for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. Ever since June 10th of 2019, AC Odyssey players have been thinking outside of the box, and have created some really entertaining missions….. and exploits. Players have found a way to “farm” XP, and drachmae (in-game currency) by using this online tool. Players were able to design short quests that rewarded large amounts of XP and drachmae. Yeah, it was that simple. In a short amount of time, these controversial missions had spread across the Assassin’s Creed community, so much so that Ubisoft had to put an end to it.
In a recent statement by Ubisoft, the community manager had commented on the aforementioned Story Creator Mode.
The following adjustments will be implemented:
- XP farming quests will not appear in our automatic recommendation system – this includes the Hall of Fame and the trending section.
- Stories that are reported for exploitation or cheating will be hidden moving forward.
- We will be sanctioning those who continue to willingly and intentionally misuse the tool.
- Implement further solutions with upcoming title updates. We will share more information as we near these updates.
