Oh wait, I didn't meant to use THAT title for this video! What Ubisoft did TOTALLY wasn't about undercutting user-generated competition, I'M SURE!

Assassin's Creed Odyssey released a Story Creator Tool last month that lets players make their own quests. Naturally, some of the quests made allowed for easy experience gains with rapidly defeated enemies, skipping Odyssey's grind.

While most publishers don't give a crap - these sorts of tools are there for people to do whatever they want with them - Ubisoft has decided XP farming quests are "exploits" and will now ban them.

Assassin's Creed Odyssey sells XP boosters on the game's heavily stocked microtransaction storefront. You do the math, 'cos Ubi sure has!
