Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
A new mode for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Story Creator Mode, is here and it will allow us to tell our own stories in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
As if there was not enough story in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, we now have a tool that will let us add more. Not in a way were Ubisoft will be specifically writing us more but in the way of a new update that will allow all of us to use their tools to create and publish our own stories in the game’s world. Let me introduce you to the new Story Creator Mode that has hit Assassin’s Creed Odyssey for all players of the game right now. Yes, this is also a free thing for anyone playing on the PC, PS4, and Xbox One now and on until they shut the service down. Get ready to get lost further in this world now.
It sounds cool, but this new feature for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey will take a bit of work on our end if we want to add a new story in the mix. This is not something we can build within the game directly, but via a special website that is set up and uses a storyboard style system to craft with. It will allow for branching stories and use of what looks like all of the characters in the game. It will also allow us to write our own text for the story, which could be something dangerous to open up but allow us to make the story more than a bunch of collection missions. Obviously, none of these will be voiced over in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey due to the nature of games.
If I had to guess, there will be a bit of a buffer between when we craft our stories and when Ubisoft will place them in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. It would be the best way to make sure that we are getting original content and stories that are not just filled with all kinds of inappropriate content. Something I am sure they will be worried about and need to control to preserve their ESRB rating of the game. I guess we will see here soon when we all start creating our own stories in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.

Are you excited to see we will be able to create our own stories in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey or is that something that should be left to the professionals? How long do you suspect it will take to fully publish a story or will that all be based on the vetting process they are going to need for this? Will this push the longevity of the game out past their next title in the franchise or will it be a fad until then? Let us all know down in the comments and then feel free to discuss. As we get more for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, we will update you all here. Just be sure to keep an eye out for it all.
