Assassin's Creed Odyssey forced to cancel first Elite Mercenary event

Assassin's Creed® Odyssey

The first live event in Assassin's Creed Odyssey was set to go live on Tuesday, October 16, but was was cancelled by Ubisoft.

As announced on the Assassin's Creed website, Odyssey's programme of live events was due to kick off with the insertion of an Epic Mercenary called Damais into the game, providing fresh opposition for players. That didn't happen sadly, with technical issues forcing Ubisoft to cancel the event.

"Rumour has it that Damais bailed at the very last minute", Ubisoft said in a tweet. On their official twitter, Ubi pointed the finger at the debuting character Damias, who was "was intimidated by the idea of facing the misthios".


Ubisoft went on to say that the events should be up-and-running again come October 23. Players logged in to the game yesterday to be told that "Damais the Indifferent" was roaming Greece and needed to be taken down, but despite plenty of searching, Damais was nowhere to be found.

There's no additional information regarding when the live events will start now, but once they're underway, they're suppose to rotate weekly. This can be spent at a merchant named Sargon at the Oikos of the Olympians. A blue Orichalcum emblem will be highlighted next to the quest name. Are many of you now playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey?
