Just ahead of its E3 2019 press conference, Ubisoft had an early surprise in store for one of its games. Assassin's Creed Odyssey, which released in 2018 and has been given a steady stream of additional content since then, including a custom story creator. The update is available now in open beta on PC--but that's not the only new feature coming to the game, as a fan-favorite aspect of the previous AC game is coming later this year.
The story creator mode lets you use characters from the main game and set conditions for mission completion. You can also set up strings of dialogue using a tool similar to the one used by the actual AC Odyssey developers. The tool set looks pretty robust, and quests created in the mode are playable across all platforms. You can even create a branching narrative that can result in multiple outcomes, and the dialogue options allow you to lie.

In addition, Ubisoft announced that a Discovery Tour mode will release in fall. This mode is similar to the one released for Assassin's Creed Origins. You'll once again be able to explore Ancient Greece and learn about the history of the world without conflict. It will cover 29 regions, 300 stations, and five different themes including philosophy, architecture, daily life, war, and myths.At the end of each tour you can take part in an interactive quiz. It will be available as a free update.
