Ubisoft has canceled one of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’s first live events. The NPC “Damais The Indifferent” was supposed to show up in the game this week but he did not. Delays and cancellations are unfortunate, but Ubisoft’s tweet about this instance provides a nice amount of levity to soften the blow.
“Rumour has it that Damais bailed at the very last minute,” Ubisoft said in a tweet. “Apparently, he was intimidated by the idea of facing the misthios. He’ll give you a fair fight as soon as we track him down.”

While the Damais The Indifferent event has been canceled, Ubisoft is adding a new “epic ship” to the game on October 23. You’ll find this ship in the Aegean Sea.
Odyssey launched earlier in October for PS4, Xbox One, PC, (and Nintendo Switch in Japan), and it was a massive success; it broke sales records for Ubisoft.
Ubisoft is promising the “biggest and most ambitious” follow-on content in franchise history for Odyssey. This includes two new storylines, Legacy of the First Blade and The Fate of Atlantis, which each contain three instalments that will be released episodically. That content is paid, but Ubisoft is also offering a third storyline, The Lost Tales of Greece, to all players for free.
GameSpot’s Assassin’s Creed Odyssey review scored the game an 8/10.
“Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’s ambition is admirable, which is reflected in its rich attention to detail for the era and its approach to handling the multi-faceted narrative with strong protagonists at the lead,” reviewer Alessandro Fillari said. “While its large-scale campaign–clocking in at over 50 hours–can occasionally be tiresome, and some features don’t quite make the impact they should, Odyssey makes great strides in its massive and dynamic world, and it’s a joy to venture out and leave your mark on its ever-changing setting.”
