Announced at E3 2019 and released shortly after, the Story Creator Mode is supposed to allow players to make their own quests for the game and then share them with other players. To some, blocking these low-effort XP quests will be seen as a way for Ubisoft to force players back into paying for that stuff, although Ubisoft says that this move is to preserve the overall "quality, integrity and goal of Story Creator mode". So, naturally, people started creating quests that were basically XP farming tools. "These exploits risk jeopardizing the overall quality, integrity, and objective of Story Creator Mode and results in less visibility for the creative, interesting and frankly fantastic community stores that have been published". We are also working on corrections and changes to reduce the impact of such searches and quests on the player's experience. Ubisoft has noticed a glut of missions meant to easily boost XP, and has announced changes to the mode to prevent farming.

Ubisoft will hide user-created stories that allow for experience point exploits or any other sort of cheating moving forward.

If you like your games stealthy and Ubisoft-y, check out all the weird and wonderful playable characters in Watch Dogs Legion. To continue with the main missions, players needed to gain levels by accomplishing side quests, which resulted in pacing issues that significantly diminished an otherwise impactful story. Many speculate that Ubisoft is cracking down on this to manage any sort of competition for Odyssey's in-game store. If you assumed Ubisoft would be okay with XP farming in a single-player game without any striking competitive aspects, you'll need to consider again. Outside of the Hidden Blade and Atlantis stories, the company also released a fully remastered version of Assassin's Creed III and Assassin's Creed III: Liberation, plus a host of free content including the episodic Lost Tales of Greece missions. On the reception that had the last installment of the popular franchise, the writer says that "It is very gratifying to listen to people who have been fans of the series for so long, get on Twitter and social networks and read that they love the game".
