Think you’re just about reaching the end of everything to do in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey? Taken out the Cult of Kosmos and chased down all those Engravings? Soon you might be able to get even more out of Ubisoft’s action RPG – mounting evidence points to a quest creator tool for the studio’s Greek odyssey.
Earlier this week @AccesstheAnimus, a fan-run Twitter channel dedicated to analysing everything Assassin’s Creed, posted that “E3 is approaching and we can finally mention that we were kindly invited to test an upcoming community oriented tool for #AssassinsCreed Odyssey!”. They added “We can’t say much more for now, but we suggest you checking the #UbiE3 Pre-Show for more details!”. Intriguing indeed.
This potentially confirms what Dominik Voigt, Community Manager at Ubisoft, seemed to accidentally post in April about a “Story Creator Mode”, as reported by Rock Paper Shotgun. The post, since deleted but preserved on Reddit, reads “we are very happy to present to you in exclusivity Story Creator Mode, a community-generated Content feature that will be available to all Assassin’s Creed Odyssey players at a later date”. Though incomplete, the post finishes saying the studio wants to “take our philosophy of empowering player choice furth[er]”. Very, very intriguing.
To add even more fuel to speculation, Twitter users @ChirayataN and @ZeroELEC have highlighted that the quest builder might be confirmed by content that already appears in-game. A tooltip box, seemingly prompted by hovering your cursor over the game’s UI after logging in, says “My Stories: This feature will become available when the game is fully installed”.

It looks like the cat is very nearly out of the bag, and we’ll soon get the chance to send Kassandra and Alexios on many, many more errands, missions, and, well, anything else Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’s fans can cook up.
