Assassin's Creed Odyssey's November Update Brings New Story Content, Events, And More

Assassin's Creed Odyssey offers no shortage of quests and things to do, and that expansive well of content is get a little deeper. The free November update adds a bunch of interesting stuff mostly focusing on side content and gameplay tweaks. Along with a new Lost Tales of Greece questline, players can look forward to additional epic events, a battle against Steropes the Cyclops, new items, and several gameplay tweaks like a level cap increase.

The Lost Tales of Greece story unfolds in multiple parts, and will be marked as yellow side quests on your map. They won't appear until you reach Episode 5. These missions produce unique rewards and factor in player choice. The map will also contain the location of new epic battles against a mercenary and ship. Victory against these challenging foes will reward you with either new equipment or a new ship design, respectively. These events are for players that have reached level 30 or higher.

Some of the smaller touches in this update are the ability to auto-craft arrows, and the implementation of an extra visual layer for gear. As Ubisoft's official site says, "[the visual customization system] will allow you to combine the stats of one item and the appearance of another in the same slot."

Rockstar Working On Red Dead Redemption II's Missing Camper Bug

Rockstar Working On Red Dead Redemption II's Missing Camper Bug

If you've been playing Red Dead Redemption II, you may have noticed an issue in the game's second chapter, where people who should be important to the gang seem to not be available. While initially fans thought this was part of the game's realistic nature, allowing characters to live their own lives and do their own activities, it seems that it is a bug related to the progression of a quest.

“If you completed the mission ‘Polite Society, Valentine Style’ at the start of Chapter 2, but needed to use the Retry Checkpoint feature, then Sadie, Jack, John, and Abigail will only appear in camp when they have missions for you to complete,” writes Rockstar on the game's support site. “We are aware of the issue and are currently working on a fix to be included in an upcoming Title Update.”

If you haven't yet gotten to the point, Rockstar advises doing your best to do the mission in one go, since there is no word on when the title update fixing it may come.

Persona Dancing Games Get Demos Out Today On PS4

If you have been looking forward to the two newest Persona Dancing games, Persona 3 Dancing in Moonlight and Persona 5 Dancing in Starlight, then you probably know that their release is imminent. The two separate rhythm games bring the Persona 3 and Persona 5 soundtracks with new arrangements to a dancing game using the characters. For fans of Persona 4 Dancing All Night, you already know how the game plays, but for everyone else, two demos have been released on PS4 to help familiarize yourself with your Persona music delivery system.

The demo, which is only available in the U.S., takes you through four tracks each from the games' soundtracks. During the track, Persona characters dance choreographed numbers to the music, including fan favorites like Mitsuru, Joker, and more. Check out the demo trailer below.

Curiously, the demo is not set to be released in regions other than North America until December 11, which is after the game's worldwide release date. So if you live in Europe, you will need to wait another month if you're still on the fence.

Here's A Fun Secret For Overwatch's Robotic Butler B.O.B.

Here's A Fun Secret For Overwatch's Robotic Butler B.O.B.

Overwatch players are just now getting to know Ashe, the latest hero who was just added to PTR on PC and will likely be added to full game in the weeks ahead. Early reports are that Ashe is a blast to play, but is a high-skill hero, especially for players who hope to shoot the dynamite out of the air. Basically, Pharah beware! Players are also learning that Ashe's robotic butler B.O.B. may have a soft side when his gun arm isn't blowing away the competition.

 If Ashe waves at B.O.B., he will wave back. Blizzard even created two waving animations – one for if B.O.B. has his weapon drawn, and another if he's standing idle. This a fun little discovery that I'm sure players will use in the pre-game lobby, and, you guessed it, to grief players after B.O.B. mows them down. Just a heads up that you'll likely start seeing this animation as more players discover it.
