Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’s latest update arrives tomorrow, February 26th, and it’s a whopper, introducing, among other things, the previously announced New Game + mode. It also fulfils Ubisoft promise to make adjustments to Episode 2’s controversial ending.
Ubisoft took flak for the ending of Odyssey’s DLC episode Shadow Heritage in January, when fans discovered that it forced their character into a specific relationship option, even if players had opted to role-play as gay – something entirely possible, thanks to Odyssey’s inclusive range of romance options – or if they simply had no interest in Ubisoft’s choice of partner.
The developer eventually pledged to amend the controversial ending, explaining that it would add the option for the relationship to remain exclusively non-romantic. When it first detailed Odyssey’s February update, however, news on these changes was conspicuously absent.
