It must be said, Ubisoft has certainly been hitting the mark so far with all the new features and content in their Greek epic Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, delivering wholeheartedly on their promises on release. Now even better news has leaked for fans, as Ubisoft tease a Story Editor.
A leak and a fan-site post suggest Ubisoft is developing a story editor for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, which will allow gamers to craft their own missions for the Ancient Greece-set action-adventure game.
In April, Ubisoft community manager Dominik Voigt, apparently by mistake, put up a post which mentioned a “Story Creator Mode” for Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey. It was subsequently taken down, but – as ever – captured and preserved by Reddit.
And now, Assassin’s Creed fan-site Access The Animus has tweeted: “E3 is approaching and we can finally mention that we were kindly invited to test an upcoming community oriented tool for #AssassinsCreed Odyssey! We can’t say much more for now.” Which sounds very likely to be that story editor.
Assassin’s Creed: Origins came with an Animus Control Panel, which allowed players to tweak various parameters in the game, and a full-blown story mission editor for Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey would represent a logical step forwards from that.
Another Twitter user revealed a tooltip which popped up when playing Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey’s Fate of Atlantis DLC and referenced something entitled “My Stories”, which further suggests a story editor is in the works for the game.
Hopefully, Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey’s story editor will be announced during Ubisoft’s E3 press conference, due to take place at 9 pm UK time on Monday, June 10. For further information, keep an eye on Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey’s website.
