With update 1.20, Assassin's Creed Odyssey continues to evolve per its publisher's service-based approach. The biggest feature of the patch that can be used today, of course, is the custom gear loadouts feature, which essentially allows you to group and categorize certain sets of gear to equip in various situations. If you're looting an encampment using stealth, for example, it may be best to quickly equip multiple pieces of gear that allow your character to move more nimbly. Rather than wading through menus and manually equipping each individual piece you want, it's possible to pay a small amount of in-game currency to unlock a loadout slot. This is a feature that will be most helpful to endgame and New Game+ enthusiasts, but it also helps strengthen Odyssey's RPG foundation as a whole.

Outside that single feature, though, there's not much available now that changes the game enough to bring existing players back. While the backend for the Fate of Atlantis DLC is included in this update, the package itself won't be available for another two weeks. Following the tradition of most single-player games this late in their release cycle, Assassin's Creed Odyssey update 1.20 is mostly a small collection of bug fixes designed to further polish the experience.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey is available now on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
