Ubisoft cancels first Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey live event


Ubisoft has cancelled the first live event due to take place in Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey.

As announced on the Assassin’s Creed website, Odyssey’s programme of live events was due to kick off with the insertion of an Epic Mercenary called Damais into the game, providing fresh opposition for players. 

However, unspecified technical issues meant that Damais never showed up. Drolly, Ubisoft tweeted: “This week’s live event was canceled – apologies for the inconvenience. Rumor has it that Damais bailed at the very last minute. Apparently, he was intimidated by the idea of facing the misthios. He’ll give you a fair fight as soon as we track him down.”

Ubisoft’s jokey tone in the tweet announcing Damais’ failure to appear suggests that the technical difficulties which led to the postponement of Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey live events programme shouldn’t take too long to resolve. When the programme does get under way it should, according to Ubisoft, take this form: “Our live events will rotate weekly between Epic Ships and Epic Mercenaries, and are for players who have progressed to level 30 or above. Along with the daily quests and weekly contracts, completing these weekly live events will automatically reward you with a special currency, Orichalcum. This can be spent at a merchant named Sargon at the Oikos of the Olympians. To participate in live events, contracts can be activated at any quest board in the game, as well as on your ship. They will be identifiable by the blue Orichalcum emblem next to the quest name.”
