Assassin's Creed Odyssey Story Creator XP Farming Quests Have Been Banned

Not for much longer, however, as Ubisoft wants to put a stop to it. Despite the fact that Assassin's Creed Odyssey is a single player game and farming a bit of easy XP hurts nobody in the long run, Ubisoft says that doing so will "risk jeopardizing the overall quality, integrity, and goal of Story Creator Mode". When looking at player-created quests on the map, I saw as many farming ones as regular ones, all of them potentially taking the place of a more full-featured quest.

While you can't just make a quest that doles out XP or cash for nothing, it's possible to create one that's so quick, simple and low-effort that it's effectively the same thing. The in-game shop also offers a permanent XP boost item as a real-money purchase.

"Story Creator Mode was created to be a tool for players to let their creativity and imagination run free as they build their very own Stories to share with others, using a modified version of the tools our own designers used to develop the quests in the game", the update states.

Ensuring the continuation of the current political system led by the Kim family is a long-sought goal by North Korea . Ortagus denied the report , quoting top US negotiator on North Korea Stephen Biegun as calling it "completely false".

Ubisoft isn't pleased, and will implement changes to reduce the impact of farming quests. To some, blocking these low-effort XP quests will be seen as a way for Ubisoft to force players back into paying for that stuff, although Ubisoft says that this move is to preserve the overall "quality, integrity and goal of Story Creator mode". People were making many "farming quests" that would exploit the Story Creator tool in order to help others gain large amounts of XP. It wants to reward creativity and will be issuing a fix to prevent these XP farming creations from being so effective.

"These exploits risk jeopardising the overall quality, integrity, and goal of Story Creator Mode and results in less visibility for the creative, interesting and frankly fantastic community stories that have been published", reads the forum announcement.

It will begin by removing farming XP quests from its automatic recommendation system. It will begin sanctioning players who continue to make such cheats as well. While it is not technically considered cheating (it will be going forward) since players are simply using tools given to them by Ubisoft, the publisher certainly frowns on it because it renders its $10 lifetime XP boosters worthless.
