Man, Chapter 7 just keeps on going - is it the game's longest chapter? When I finish it, how much main storyline do I have left?

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.

Yes it is a really long chapter but it has some entertaining quests for example in Olympia. After that there are maybe 2 or 3 hours and you are done with that questline.

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.

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.



Here you go:



Original quality pics:

Vanilla


Reshade (MXAO, clarity, some sharpening etc.)
Okay I have a 1080ti and an 8086k how do I do this?!?! plz help me out :)

Also started this game 2 days ago LOVING it so far :D

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.

I'm thinking about picking up the season pass. It's $50 CAD on Xbox. Worth it?
forgot how much i paid but i'm sure i got it quite cheaper, if you care to hold out a bit. though it was during those ps4 across the board sales, dunno how xbox metes those out

but regardless of saving a few bucks yeah it's worth it. if you care to mess with AC3 remastered at all (i personally didn't) it's a no brainer value

The Legacy of the First blade is fucking trash. Atlantis stuff is better but it's nothing groundbreaking. If you enjoyed base AC Odyssey and just want more, overall I'd say it's worth it.

Is it worth upgrading armor and weapons or should I just buy new ones each time I level up?
If you have certain sets you want to upgrade for their bonuses, only level them up every 10 levels because that’s when their perks go up a tier, otherwise you’re just raising damage/armour which aren’t as important.

That’s an end-game concern when you have completed sets for certain builds. As you’re progressing through the game, just rely on whatever you loot. No point holding on to items for cosmetic reasons as everything you loot can be used as a skin.

I took an extended break from this game and I am more lost than ever. I've been playing as Alexios this whole time, and frankly.... I'm sick of seeing and hearing him. I still have main game left to play, but I've beaten enough to access new game plus. I started a new game with Kassandra. Now, before I get too terribly far, I'm just wondering.... what would you guys do? Stick with my restart? New game plus to blaze through what I've seen before as Kassandra, because frankly I don't want to continue a plot I don't remember much of? Just start the dlc with a pre levelled character from the menu? Will that even let me play the rest of the game? Sheeeesh, this game might just be too damn big :(

I'm thinking I'm probably going to get the good ol AC fatigue again before I ever see this dlc in context with the rest of the story. Ah well, worst case scenario I have a few more hours of fun hiding in bushes and stabbing people.

Kassandra is leaps and bounds my favourite AC protagonist, it would be a shame not to get to play as her.

Do you know reshade? It's not complicated and there are tutorials. You can add effects to your games. I added MXAO, which does better ambient occlusion, clarity for a cleaner picture and added fxaa and smaa as Antialiasing methods instead of the in-game stuff. Gives me better performance and a clean IQ.

DLC is up in Europe (11.32GB):
"Journey into a fabled city of legend, encounter the mighty Poseidon, and discover the realm's destiny in the final episode of The Fate of Atlantis! "

How are the previous episodes of the dlc? Saw a trailer for the third one and I'm a sucker for the dumb AC lore so it kinda made me interested in the dlc.

Kassandra and Alexios have the same lines, Alexios has much better voice acting. But, considering the enormous amount of lines, neither of them is amazing. They're the same character/protagonist.

Replaying the game with the other character will simply increase your fatigue, you're not getting a different experience.

From what I have read, Kassandra's voice acting is more serious while Alexios is more sarcastic/goofy. So that could make a difference. But yeah, overall the story and the characterization stays the same.

Whether Alexios or Kassandra has better voice acting really is a matter of taste, though. People act like either Alexios or Kassandra is clearly the best, but just the fact that people say this about both characters show how divided opinions are.

I finished the family storyline, took down all the legendary beasts, and I've only got one more Atlantis artifact to find (on Lesbos)

I'm level 42 and all the Lesbos content is gated at levels 46-50. What's the quickest way for me to level up? I'm hoping to wrap up the game relatively quickly and the thoughts of wading through hours of side quests aren't filling me with excitement

Started the DLC and good god Atlantis is beautiful, even more so than Elysium. Quite a relief after the underworld.
I'm extremely impressed with that level design! Absolutely gorgeous, but quite intense on the hardware. Looking forward to the last dlc playthrough, afterwards it's time to put an end to the game. What an insane value that was!

Just finished the new episode: overall it was much, much shorter than the other episodes since things were more streamlined.

The Modern Day ending is really really bad.

No, although you should be doing it anyways.

There was a period where I ran out of quests; doing side activities caused another one to spawn.

You should be working on maxing out Isu knowledge regardless.

i did a side quest
(the one with the werewolf)
and it unlocked the revolution stuff. the new quest was only on the map, not on the list. thanks for the help!

The final dlc episode was a huge letdown. The location was nice, but the story was really short, and the series has now hit bad fanfic levels of writing. Good lord.

Download, open, chose the AC Odyssey .exe, chose the effects you want to add. I'll only go with clarity, fxaa, SMAA and MXAO. Install. This will add it to your game and you can start your game the normal way. In game you can open reshade with Pos1 I think. There you have to create and name a file for the game (there is a +). Continue and simply click on the effects you want to add.

This is a very short description, there are tutorials online and even on their site.

As I said, I would set in game AA to low and use Fxaa and SMAA from reshade, gives me better performance with a good image quality.

Going through the last DLC now, better environment than part 2 but its a bit of a let down that part 1 was the best looking of the three. Fanfic levles of writing? Looking forward to that ;)

Platinum get after 105 hours.

What an amazing game. Think I can confidently say it's my favourite in the series. That's now two AC's in a row that have been really, really good imo, excited to see what comes next.

It's pretty interesting to be so invested in AC again. I was a huge fan up until Black Flag also, but then completely lost all interest after that. Didn't think I'd ever beat another AC game until Origins.

Kassandra and Alexios have the same lines, Alexios has much better voice acting. But, considering the enormous amount of lines, neither of them is amazing. They're the same character/protagonist
Kassandra's VO actually is pretty amazing imo, I love her performance.

Said it earlier in the thread, but I was willing to do even the simplest of quests in this just to hear more of her dialogue.

Haven't gotten a chance to play it yet, and hearing that is disappointing, though I'm not too surprised. I believe they really punted this whole season pass of DLC, especially considering how great Curse of the Pharoahs was. Too bad.

Fields of Elysium is my favorite Odyssey DLC by far. I enjoyed Torment of Hades but the location was really, really boring aesthetically which was a huge shame after how beautiful and fun-to-explore Elysium was.

This 3rd episode, honestly... it just feels... rushed? There isn't that many narrative quests as in the other 2 DLC's, instad there's more "collect x amount of y" type of (optional) quests. It's a shame too, because the map itself is great.

Atlantis ep 3 spoiler:

Layla is just the worst. Honestly, I'd rather be a floating tablet again a'la Black Flag & Rogue. Also, AC continues to not know how to deal with modern day villains. The fight with Otso Berg was laughable, he went down in what, 4-5 hits? After so many games of teasing him. Speaking of which, it was nice to see Juno again, and well, Aita, after killing so many sages in other games. Kinda forgot about him because that storyline got dropped too, lmao. But, I dunno. The DLC demystified the Isu way too much for me. It just felt like playing through someone's fanfic at times.

I just started Ep 2 but Hades feels appropriate to what I imagined a hellscape to be.
