Earlier this month, Ubisoft announced that Assassin's Creed Odyssey will host weekly live events where players can hunt down a special mercenary or naval ship in the world for better prey and equipment. The idea was to switch between mercenaries and ships every week. So far, however, Ubisoft has not had much luck in actually getting the mercenaries to appear in the game.
After the first mercenary live event proved to be a failure, a bug prevented the NPC in the game, Ubisoft announced via Twitter that they are currently working to solve a problem that prevents the appearance of mercenaries. Therefore, there will be no live event this week.
However, not every hope is lost. The live event of the next week's naval ships is still ongoing. And, according to Ubisoft, this new ship will "redefine the naval war for Sparta."
Assassin's Creed Odyssey is now available for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
