Ubisoft has confirmed it will be patching the Shadow Heritage DLC for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey after considering feedback from players over the past couple of weeks.
In case you missed all the hullabalo over Shadow Heritage, gamers were pretty miffed to discover that the DLC largely dismissed any relationship choices you made. In other words, even if you pursued a gay romance during the campaign, Shadow Heritage forced you into a same-sex fling.
Given the understandably negative reaction to this, Ubisoft has now confirmed that it will be patching the mission to better reflect your choices.
‘After hearing player feedback and discussing within the development team we are making changes to a cutscene and some dialogue in Shadow Heritage to better reflect the nature of the relationship for players selecting a non-romantic storyline. These changes, along with renaming a trophy/achievement, are being made now and will be implemented in an upcoming patch.’
‘We’ve also been carefully looking at the next episode, Bloodline, to ensure the paths that players experience mirror the choices they make in game.’
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey launched in October for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One, and you can read VideoGamer’s thoughts on the stealth-flavoured adventurer here. If you’re looking for another excuse to revisit the game, there’s a new mythical monster to battle if you fancy it.
