Assassin's Creed Odyssey: Ubisoft Announces Changes in the Upcoming Patch
French gaming giant Ubisoft made some big announcement this week. The company has announced that it's making some changes to the recent DLC release for the "Assassin's Creed Odyssey.'
The DLC update has come under fire from the gaming world after a highly controversial new story chapter that unwound some players’ same-sex romance choices. As a result, the company was forced to release an apology statement, addressing the recent issue regarding the DLC update. The newly released update features a mandatory in-game relationship rendering any romantic decisions the player made null.
Originally, the new DLC content was going to remain unchanged as Ubisoft believed that the new DLC has no problem. Unfortunately, things are not going as planned. Ubisoft has made some mistakes. After hearing some feedbacks regarding the recent DLC update, the company has finally decided to make some changes.
In a recent blog post, the development team said that they’re planning some changes to a cutscene as well as dialogue choices for those players who are simply not interested in relationships at all. Ubisoft is already working on the issue along with some changes with trophy and achievement. All of these changes will be implemented in an upcoming patch. The company is also looking at the game’s next episode, the Bloodline, to make sure that this will not create a similar gaming issue.
The action role-playing game "Assassin’s Creed Odyssey" has been nominated for the GLAAD Media Award for the Outstanding Video Game award, a category that seeks to celebrate interactive experiences that features some impactful LGBTQ storylines and characters.
The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) has already released a statement, addressing the issue over the recent DLC update. The GLAAD’s action comes in response to the game's recent nomination for the Outstanding Video Game award.
The popular game will be joining four other nominees for the Outstanding Video Game category. These include "The Elder Scrolls Online: Summerset," "Guild War: Path of Fire," "Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire," and "The Sims Mobile."
This is the first-ever GLAAD Media Awards for the video game industry, which will be held on March 28 in Los Angeles, California.
