Just finished the questline in Olympia yesterday. It was a lot of fun and very well made. On to arkadia now!
I think the main difference between origins and Odyssey is that Odyssey goes full rpg. More customisation, dialogue options(!), a more thought out skill tree, deeper loot and mercenary systems. I like both games and if I have to choose I would say ody because of the phenomenal performance of Kassandra. I catch myself exhausting all dialogue options regularly and even going for odd choices just to put her in a weird spot. I really like the way she was written, cocky and always a funny thing on her tongue.

Wow, I had no idea the sails of the Adrestia changed once again once you upgrade the hull to legendary level. That black/red/gold scheme of the hull itself was already the GOAT and the new black/gold/red sail makes it look even better.

On part 2 of the Atlantis dlc and
I'm mad at this dummy Alexios for letting Phoibe go off on her own again. Thought he would've learned this lesson by now with her previously dying and all.

Had two hours to play yesterday. Wanted to finally progress the main story because I'm level 34 and just reached Athens. Ended up killing three legendary animals from a side quest and not even touching the story. Again.
This game has just so much stuff around every corner.

Ok so I completed the june Tales of Greece 'Every Story Has An Ending' but no trophy.. I already completed the main quest and all quests involved so no luck in that as well.

Anyone encountered this problem?

Of and the finale tales will be included next week I assume?

Playing this on PC in 4k with HDR enable there are times were the visuals blow me away like nothing before. Honestly feels like what Id imagine next gen will be like.

Sorry for the hyperbole but the game is unreal looking at times.

Agree. Now add MXAO and clarity via reshade and it will look even better. MXAO is amazing and adds a lot of depth, especially on the vegetation. I will post a comparison when I'm back from work.

Have to turn it of in caves though because it can't deal with the fog.

That seems pretty inconvenient to turn off for every instance of fog.

How big a performance hit is MXAO? As it is I can’t even come close to maxing this game out at 4K with a 1080 Ti and 6700.

Incredible title

Been watching my SO play for 200+ hours now and I can safely say that an open world game hasn’t blown me away this much since BOTW.

Even on the consoles this game looks amazing. I think it's one of the most natural looking and detailed games ever made. If the character models were just a little better I'd say it would be up there with Red Dead 2.

From PlaystationTrophies.org: "If you are having trouble getting this trophy to pop, there is a final quest called "Moving Forward" that will only appear after the completion of the Socrates quest "We Remember" that appears in Athens."

You also have to have completed the main quest, I think.

It's a hit, but you can turn down the quality of the MXAO. I have a 1080ti and a 8700k and am playing at 1440p 60fps nearly maxed out. But I'm inserting SMAA and FXXA through reshade as well, turned down the ingame AA. Am happy with the IQ, added some clarity, now it looks sharp and clear.

The mercenaries are really start to piss me off. Guess I'll just start paying my bounty all the time so they stop screwing up my missions.

Do they show up more frequently based on the game's difficulty? Cuz I might lower it if they are related.

Is the one thing in the game that I'm really not liking.

They show up when you misbehave, like the police in GTA. Once you start progressing in the game, it’s kind of advantageous to fight them for gear and xp. The worse is when you’re sieging a fort and two mercenaries drop in to team up on you while you’re fighting 10 guys already.

Yeah I hate when that happens.

I think forts and the like should render you immune to mercenaries/bounties for as long as you are in the hostile zone. So the game should still keep track of your crimes, the bounty just shouldn't kick in until you leave the area. This should give you time to prepare for the coming fight, evade the mercenaries or pay off your bounty.

Another thing I don't like about bounties and mercenaries is how the bounty level stays the same no matter how many mercenaries you kill. If you kill a mercenary who is hunting you, the wanted meter should drop by 1 level.

It’s also kind of fun to defeat the weird looking mercenaries non lethally and make them lieutenants on your ship.

That's exactly why I don't like how they work. Yesterday I was at a fort and needed to kill a leader. I assassinated him and no one saw nothing. As I was leaving, two mercenaries just popped up behind me and killed me.

It felt so cheap that I stopped playing.

When you go to town and take out everybody plus the mercenaries, it feels nice. That said, you can always just pay them off as you’re racking up murders.

I really like it when mercenaries join the fight because it gets crazy really fast. What I don't like is when a high level mercenary joins the fight because he is a show stopper and I have to flee.

I get that sentiment for sure, but I do like how it changes up the gameplay to have to like, bail out and hide, and maybe wait until that mercenary is isolated and then make them pay dearly.

Yesterday I finished the family story quests and the emotional payoff was really good. I don't know how they did it but the emotional elements in this game are so well made that you almost have to get invested in. I guess it is a combination of really good actors (all hail Kassandra) and powerful face animation technology. It took me around 55 hours and I am lvl 46. Next goal is reaching lvl 50, get the number one spot of the mercenaries and win the arena. There is still so much to do it is crazy.

Remember you can kill the Bounty sponser to get rid of bounties. I often purposely get a 5 rank bounty, kill a dozen mercs then kill the sponsor (sometimes there's 2). Only time it's tricky is when the sponsor is also the Region Leader.

Is all the dlc out now, or is more incoming? If there's more incoming, any idea on when it'll all be out? Haven't started the game yet, and thinking of waiting until all the dlc is out now.

I've been playing this on and off for a few months and really enjoying it. I've just gotten to the point where it looks like a 3rd main quest line has opened up
Atlantis - Between Two Worlds.

What order would you recommend completing these main quest lines between family, cult and this 3rd line? Does it matter? Apologies if this has been asked before. I'm reluctant to search the thread due to spoilers.

My god, this game is so good, and I'm only a few hours in.

Kassandra is a lovely playable character. More of this please.

Just started the Atlantis DLC. The combat is a little more difficult compared to the last DLC. The kolossi and the adrenaline sapping created a few near death experiences.

Any tips on making it easier?

Reached level 50 yesterday and now is the time to clean up the arena and claim my place as the mightiest mercenary of Greece. Still having a ton of fun despite completed the family quest line and only strolling on islands I never visited before and killing cultists.
