You'll soon be able to transmog your gear in Assassin's Creed Odyssey, which, if you're not a World of Warcraft fan, means you'll be able to set your appearance separately to the items you're actually wearing.

Odyssey has some snazzy-looking armour and weapons, though you have to replace them fairly quickly as you acquire higher level but more common-looking bits and pieces. You can pay to upgrade your armour at Blacksmiths, but it's simpler to just keep equipping newer items instead.

The feature arrives in the game later this month, and then you'll never have to choose between that lovely looking helmet and something that actually raises your power.

Odyssey's level cap of 50 is also getting a boost - after Ubisoft found people were hitting it without even exploring half of the game. 20 new levels will be unlocked later this month, for a total of 70.

Handily, if you're already at level 50, any existing XP you've earned will be automatically converted into ability points when the new levels are unlocked. Nice!

A month after Assassin's Creed Odyssey launched, there are plenty of reasons to keep heading back - even beyond the huge amount of story available in the base game.

Last week, Ubisoft added the first of many free DLC story missions, named The Lost Tales of Greece. Next week brings a fresh quest with a tough, hulking Cyclops beastie to defeat. You can see him in the video above, alongside a look at the second Lost Tales of Greece mission, Divine Intervention, which will see Kassandra (or, I guess, Alexios) facing various mythical trials.
