following an increase in community content for XP Farming. Assassin's Creed Odyssey received an update last month at E3 adding the following: Story Creator mode. This mode, released in beta, allows players to create and share their own massive cross-card quests. These include branched narratives and a surprising complexity. However, after noticing a surge in simple quests designed solely to provide players with experience points, Ubisoft went to his community page to talk about banning the quests.
"Since the beta's launch, we've seen an increasing stream of & # 39; farming quests & # 39; using the tool to get large amounts of XP."

It also briefly mentions upcoming changes that further reward creativity and highlight user-generated quests.
