Ubisoft has a ton of DLC planned for its latest open-world adventure, Assassin's Creed Odyssey, and players can now jump into the game's first free post-launch story mission. The first chapter in The Lost Tales of Greece is available now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC as part of Odyssey's new 1.0.6 update, which also makes a number of other changes and improvements to the game.
Once players have installed the update, they'll be able to jump into a new questline titled The Show Must Go On. In the patch notes on Reddit, Ubisoft says that the quest is open to all players who have made it to chapter 5 of the story and can be found in the Elis region, but it recommends that you reach at least level 34 before tackling the new questline.
The Lost Tales of Greece is a series of free story missions that Ubisoft will release "between" the game's paid DLC episodes. Ubisoft says these will "feature familiar faces and new characters from the world of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey." Players can also purchase a Season Pass, which entitles them to two "major" storylines broken up into three episodes apiece. The first of these, Legacy of the First Blade, is slated to kick off this December.
In addition to the new story quest, update 1.0.6 makes improvements to the Mercenary menu and other aspects of the game. Now, you'll be able to select the ability to auto-craft normal arrows if you have enough resources, and the cost to upgrade your gear has been reduced. You can read the full list of changes in Ubisoft's patch notes.
Assassin's Creed Odyssey released for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on October 5; a streaming-only version is also available for Nintendo Switch in Japan. The game had one of the best launch weeks of the franchise and received positive reviews. GameSpot awarded it an 8/10 in our Assassin's Creed Odyssey review and said the game "makes great strides in its massive and dynamic world."
