Gotta pump up those MAUs

(Only half joking. No idea why they do it like this.)
If I had to venture a guess it's to keep updating the game on a regular basis. I've really had no complaints between Origins and Odyssey with how often they released new quests and other content. It's probably some of the best post-release support I can recall. From Ubisoft or otherwise.

The upcoming release of Atlantis has me so pumped that it motivated me to log in and collect the remaining Eagle Points they added a few weeks back and to finish the ? on Chios. So I have now officially completed every gold/blue quest in the game, the first DLC, and every eagle point and ? in the game.....

I think I have like 3 Forts to finish still!

Just so this doesn't creep up on anyone, the monthly update says that if you want access to the Atlantis dlc content you need to have finished both the Atlantis story ending and the Heir of Memories mission. If you are planning on getting involved day one then you should get those done asap. They mention that they will let you create a temporary save file to access the new content straight away but they don't really go into any detail as to what that involves, you might not be able to take your personal Kass/Alex into the dlc if you go that route, I dunno.

It's probably just like the booster/ACP in Origins. Not copying your gear and abilities wouldn't make a lot of sense (everybody plays differently), especially when they already have the capacity to clone save files.

But it will disable your achievements (and challenges?), so it's not a substitute for natural progression.

You would need the Gold edition for that, also on sale, for $33. Deluxe edition is just some minor gear and 2 hour xp boosters for XP and gold.
I wasn't that interested in the game but was out shopping and spotted the game for €25! Decided to get it.

Excited to jump in!
Both of these price points are insane for the amount of content you get from them. I paid full price for the game and DLC and even spent 20 bucks on some outfits and I feel like I got my money out of the game even at that cost!

Decided to pick the game back up again after not playing for months, and I feel totally lost in the story. The last big thing to happen that I remember was

Kassandra met her true father

but I don't remember a lot of things and characters up to that point. I'd start over, but I don't want to lose 30+ hours of progress...

Guess I'll just march onwards.

Bought this game at launch for Xbox One X, liked it plenty, but burned out after like 50 hours of play.

Double dipped for my "main" platform of PS4 Pro this week at retail for $20 and the game has a whole new lease on life for me... I'm addicted all over again.

I'm guessing it's due to various post release patches but I'm finding that other than some framerate hitches and slower load times, the PS4 version now is seemingly way more polished feeling than my Xbox playtime was last fall. I feel like animation in cutscenes, especially facial animations, are way more emotive now, and I just don't seem to encounter as much jank when I'm fighting or climbing. Glad to see the updates since last I played have actually created noticeable improvements for me!

Despite enjoying that first 50 hour play on Xbox, I think I probably underappreciated this game last year.

Just cheesed my way to level 99 on my NG+ so I don't have to worry about upgrading my favourite gear anymore. Now back to recompleting the requirements for the FoA DLC.
Just found this glitch. I was already over leveled for the content (I was in my 60s). Just tired of constantly switching out and upgrading gear. Hopefully the dlc doesn't raise the cap again.

Pls elaborate on this? I haven't heard of it before.

Pretty much you assign the recruit button to the same button as the crouch button. Then find a mercenary or other high level enemy, paralyze them instead of killing, then spam the crouch/recruit button. Every time you crouch you receive the XP you get from defeating them.

I'm sure they'll patch it out by the time the new DLC hits Tuesday, but a warning for those of you who want to take advantage of it: It bugs out the Call To Arms Ability—doesn't allow you to spend any Ability Points on it, and says you need to progress further in the story.

It's possible that there's a way to fix it that I haven't found yet(tried completing the recruitment of the Polemarch I used for it, recruiting other NPCs, reaching the next level the normal way), but if you want all you Abilities maxed out, keep this in mind.

For me, it was the very last Ability I had left to invest in, and that was because I wasn't interested in it at all, and never saw myself using it anyways. So, I'm not too bothered by it.
 
Decided to rebuy the game digitally including season pass for 40 bucks CAD during the sale.

I honestly really liked legacy of the first blade. As a father, some of those moments were poignant. I’m looking forward to the Atlantis DLC and then I’ll feel done with the game.

It’s funny, in the meantime I’ve fired up ac3 remaster and it sure makes a difference, having a game with a modern day arc. I like the new games but something has been lost with the directionless way the story has proceeded these last 6 years or so.

Interesting. Gave it a try on PS4. It.....kinda works? Though there seem to be some issues with it. Like, I can tap tap tap the button but eventually it stops working. And if I gain a level, it doesn't go up right away. I have to do a bit of fighting to trigger the level up despite it saying I'm already that level on the menu screen.

Seems like a glitch that may just cause trouble.

By the way... The Surgical Sniper Achievement is still stuck at 90% for me. :/

It's still working even as the HUD fails to catch up to your progress. Just look at your level progress when you go to the menu.

I didn't know about that bug, but I don't use Call to Arms either. When I had it before I respeced, it wasn't all that useful.

I think I might jump on the season pass too. I didn't think I would play the dlc anytime soon, but I'm blazing through the og content.

If you like the main game, you’ll like the dlc (ignoring the railroading in ep 2).

Got the platinum. It's the first time I ever cared to get one.

The railroading was partly why I was hesitant about getting it, but I love this game and I'm still not tired of it after 140+ hours.

ACIII and Liberation was also a nice incentive. Odyssey was my first AC game so I'm going to try to go back and play the rest.

I've been playing the hell out of Odyssey these past few months, and I decided yesterday to get back into Origins, which I had burned out on (around level 27).

Unfortunately, I was reminded why I didn't latch onto Origins the way I have Odyssey. For whatever reason, I get motion sickness when playing the former, which is a problem I haven't encountered in Odyssey. Whatever they changed between the two games completely fixed the issue for me.

Just started yesterday, played it for 2 hours

I'm in love with Kassandra already

Everything seems like a step up from origina so far. The music is better, the world is beautiful, the characters are much better so far (Bayek and his revenge story was boring as hell). Even the smaller interactions feel more personal due to the camera changes.

Gameplay is as bad as origins. Feels like you're fighting air. Bumped it down to easy so I can just mash my way through the game. I have Sekiro and DMC5 if I want to play something combat focused.
