Updated December 5, 2018: Ubisoft detailed other changes to Assassin's Creed Odyssey for December. However, the story missions and Mastery Levels are by far the biggest additions.

Many games have level caps which hinder progress nowadays. This is one of the main reasons why certain players stop exploring end-game content. Assassin's Creed Odyssey suffered from a similar problem, but Ubisoft is addressing that very soon.

In a post on the game's website, the company said, "We heard your Ability Point woes, and we have an answer to them. We're excited to introduce the Mastery Levels System – the best way to upgrade your character later in the game. This new system will be included in the upcoming game version."

The "Mastery Levels System" is a new way to upgrade your character once you reach Level 50. You have the ability to spend your experience points in the new Mastery Levels that will help you sharpen your hunter, warrior, and assassin skill trees even further by increasing their statistics. For example, you can improve your damage, resistance, health, armor, or other attributes.

There are a total of 72 Mastery Levels and each one of them can be upgraded twenty times. This effectively means that you can level up till the end of time. This is a great way to keep players engaged because Diablo III also employs similar mechanics with the "Paragon" system.

Hopefully this will bring high-level players back. While Assassin's Creed Odyssey might not be as great as Assassin's Creed Origins, it's still a lot of fun and takes place in a massive world. In our review, we said the game "is a great entry in the wider series, largely bug-free, with great visuals and tight combat. But many of the new features Ubisoft included aren't as well executed as you might hope from an annual franchise."
