Assassin's Creed Odyssey: Lightning Rod Trophy Available From November 13th

By Sam Quirke, 7 months ago
Last week we picked up a couple of new trophies for Assassin's Creed Odyssey. While one was discovered to be linked to a new quest, the other remained a mystery. It looks like we'll be able to earn it from next week according to the November update from the developers.

The video starts by explaining where to pick up the new quest "The Show Must Go On", which we know is linked to the following trophy and is already obtainable:

The video then goes on to describe the weekly Epic Ship and Mercenary events which will give players more opportunity to earn the rare resource Orichalcum, plus some new Odysseus-themed gear and ship decor that can be purchased with it.

The next section describes Steropes the Lightning Bringer, a new mythical creature that will be arriving in the game next week and allowing us to obtain the remaining trophy in the game's list:

Although the video doesn't confirm the location, from the looks of things Steropes will appear in the appropriately named Steropes Bay on Andros island.

Another update coming this month is visual customisation, which allows players to customise the look of each armor component. This way players don't need to sacrifice their aesthetic preferences in order to wear the most powerful gear. The level cap is also increasing from 50 to 70. The experience that level 50 players have earned before the level cap raise will be honoured, giving those players an appropriate amount of ability points based on their hard work.

A lot of these updates will be included in the next patch, 1.0.6. Although no date was confirmed, we know Steropes is due to show up on November 13th and so we would expect the patch to hit at the same time.

We've got the full list of Assassin's Creed Odyssey trophies - check the list for guides to unlocking them.
