It is what I believe the last major patch day for Odyssey, and they're throwing out some doozies:

NEW! – Added the New Game+ mode

  • Players will be able to keep their current progression (Gear, Mounts, Spear upgrades, Ship upgrades, Abilities, Drachmae, Crafting Materials, etc.) when starting a New Game+.
  • To access New Game+, you'll need to have completed the Family Quest Line.
  • Increased maximum player level to 99. NINE NINE.
  • Added new Ship tiers to the game.
  • Added more Mastery Levels.
  • Added two Mercenary tiers and rewards.
  • Added 22 Viewpoints that can be fast traveled to.

That all sounds pretty dope! I haven't tried any of the DLC for this yet, whether it's the First Blade stuff or anything with Kassandra, but that probably just means I should try getting back into it for a bit.

I haven't logged in in a while and now there are tiers S1-S4 to go through. I doubt I'll ever get anywhere near level 99, so I'm curious how high level these people get.

The mastery levels were great but some of the percentages were awfully low. Kinda reminiscent of the badass rank problems in Borderlands 2. Still, that's a great incentive to return to that someday.

@sparky_buzzsaw: It definitely felt like the diminishing returns were a little aggressive. Good reason to spread the points around, though!

The idea that this game has a New Game + is hilarious. I’ve put close to 80 hours into it and I think I’m only halfway through. This was my GOTY last year but I just can’t imagine jumping back in any time soon after I finish it!

@soulcake: Well you are in luck, the second set of DLC is specifically that! At least according to the title we know

Apparently they also "fixed" DLC2 so at least it doesn't shoehorn a het relationship on you (necessarily). So I guess I'm in for another few hours exploring ancient Greece!

Level 99 seems... kinda nuts? I don't recall what level I am after DLC1 and finishing... a lot... of the side content, but it's certainly nowhere near 99!
