Ubisoft have posted their May 2019 schedule for Assassin's Creed: Odyssey and players will be getting an all-new The Lost Tales of Greece episode, a Heraclean selection of new items, as well as a bunch of improvements in Title Update 10.

Assassin's Creed: Odyssey's new The Lost Tales of Greece episode is called One Really, Really Bad Day, and it's actually about identity theft in the olden times. 

"You receive a frigid welcome in a small village in Lokris as you discover that an imposter has been posing as you, tarnishing your good name. You will need to figure out who this person is, bring an end to their scheme, and clear your name", Ubisoft wrote. 

One Really, Really Bad Day is coming on 14 May 2009 for all players, and we strongly suggest not reading this sentence more than once, because Ubisoft's choice of the name can start sounding really ominous, real fast.

As for the new Assassin's Creed: Odyssey items, we've mentioned they're mostly Heraclean, and the first one is a Herakles Character Pack, which contains a gear set, a mount and an axe.

The Hydra Naval Pack contains a ship design, a figurehead and a crew theme, along with including Herakles to aid you on your quest. The packs will hit the store on 21 May 2019.

Ubisoft will be releasing Assassin's Creed: Odyssey's Title Update 10 in May, but they didn't provide a fixed date. Instead, they wrote it launches in late May, and gave a few improvements that will be featured.

As of late May, Unique Legendary Lieutenants will scale up with players, increasing their perks over time, while Anigmata Ostrakas will indicate their regions. 

Assassin's Creed: Odyssey players will have visual hints to indicate items assigned to other loadouts, and there will also be a reduction in weekly contract objectives, so as to "make them simpler and faster to complete."
