Assassin's Creed Odyssey To Ban XP Farming In Creator Mode Missions

"However, since the launch of the beta we have noticed an increasing flow of farming quests, that exploit the tool to get large amounts of XP".

Despite the fact that Assassin's Creed Odyssey is a single player game and farming a bit of easy XP hurts nobody in the long run, Ubisoft says that doing so will "risk jeopardizing the overall quality, integrity, and objective of Story Creator Mode". It involves finding a particular player-created quest that instantly kills a bunch of off-screen enemies when you start it.

Ubisoft doesn't mention the shop in the announcement, but it seems a likely concern and would explain the actions the publisher is taking. The exploit was made with the game's Story Creator Mode.

"These exploits risk jeopardising the overall quality, integrity, and objective of Story Creator Mode and results in less visibility for the creative, interesting and frankly fantastic community stories that have been published", reads the forum announcement.

Ubisoft has had to crack down because too many people are using Story Creator Mode to craft repetitive questlines that farm huge chunks of XP. They also make the creative efforts of those who have made fun quests less visible. The studio said in an update that it is doing this to maintain the integrity of the creative mode, as well as to keep the XP farming missions from crowding out other community stories that are using the mode as intended.

Implement further solutions with upcoming title updates.

Now, existing XP farming quests won't appear in any of the automatic recommendation lists such as the Hall of Fame or Trending and any quests which are reported for farming will be hidden. To some, blocking these low-effort XP quests will be seen as a way for Ubisoft to force players back into paying for that stuff, although Ubisoft says that this move is to preserve the overall "quality, integrity and objective of Story Creator mode". Developers are also working on fixes that can be implemented at the software level to prevent players from making these types of quests in the first place.
