Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Patch 1.3.0 Adds Torment of Hades

Ubisoft has kept its promise to continue updating and supporting Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. We’ve seen some interesting pieces of DLC, along with a slew of improvements to the game. The goal has been to make it not only one of the best in the Assassin’s Creed series, but one of the better games of this generation. Now, patch 1.3.0 is incoming and will go live for PS4 users on May 23, 2019 at 2 am EDT. Let’s take a look at some of the most notable things this update has to offer.

Right off the bat, we’ll be getting Episode 2 of Fate of Atlantis, which is called Torments of Hades. This is the second in a three-part story arc that, as the name suggests, tasks the player with uncovering the mysteries of Atlantis. In addition to that, players will also get in-game support for the upcoming Lost Tales of Greece, which are smaller episodic stories. You will need to own the $39.99 season pass or $24.99 DLC to play the expansion.

In terms of improvements, Ubisoft has done an excellent job with this update, as there are dozens of fixes. You’ll find that enemy fire attack has been slightly reduced to make things more balanced, as well as an increase to Ikaros’ damage output.

There will also be some fixes to The Fate of Atlantis DLC involving progression issues. Some players were experiencing an issue that prevented them from completing The Keeper and the Kyros, which will be fixed with the latest update. But that’s not all, as many quests from the main game will also have similar improvements.

You’ll also find UI fixes, updates to perks, improvements to the game’s photo mode, and more.
