The game that refuses to end might just be endless.
A Ubisoft fan page has tweeted about play testing an upcoming Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Community Tool that will be supposedly by revealed at E3.
Let’s be honest, there’s plenty crammed into the over one hundred hours of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and all its DLC. But after a tweet from fan page @AccesstheAnimus and some reporting from PCGamesN, it looks like we might be getting some long rumoured community creation tools at E3 that could allow the addition of user-made story content to the game.
E3 is approaching and we can finally mention that we were kindly invited to test an upcoming community oriented tool for #AssassinsCreed Odyssey!

Ubisoft have long been talking about wanting to put players more in control of their experience, so some sort of community creation tool would definitely line up with that sentiment. Also, after many players felt let down by lack of choices within the Legacy of The Blade DLC, some more open creative tools would be the perfect make good for the lack of meaningful choices.
This tweet would also seem to match up with some Reddit rumours previously reported by Rock Paper Shotgun. Specifically, one deleted (and then of course preserved) Reddit comment in which a Ubisoft Community manager appears to have announced a “Story Creator Mode.”
Of course, none of this is confirmed by Ubisoft, but it’s an awful lot of rumours that are all starting to line up. Community tools to let players create their own stories would really be a huge addition for fans of the franchise. And, naturally, E3 would be the perfect place to announce it. You’ll have to stay tuned to our live E3 Coverage to find out if it proves true.
