Assassin’s Creed Odyssey has treated us all to some new – and free – content, including the brand-new boss, Arges the Cyclops.
Sharing the news on Twitter, the AC account wrote: “Arges the Cyclops has arrived and is ready to be sparta-kicked in the Angry Caldera of Arges!
“Defeating him will reward you with the Hammer of Hephaistos.”
However, it’s not going to be an easy defeat…

First you’ll have to travel on over to Volcanic Island towards the east of the map. Turn off the game and turn it back on again and you should receive a new bounty quest for Arges the Cyclops.
For anyone who’s having trouble finding Arges, fast travel to the Viewpoint in Ash Hills on Anaphi island and sail to the right…. “Angry Caldera of Arges” is the spot”

So, why is defeating him worth your time? Well, the Hammer of Hephaistos is a new legendary weapon and you’ll also get an achievement and a trophy for your efforts.
Players are already reporting on how hard this new boss fight actually is, confirming he could be the toughest bad guy in the game.
It’s recommended you tackle him at no less than level 50 and make sure you have a legendary weapon in your arsenal.
If you think we’re exaggerating about the difficulty level, check out YouTuber GosuNoob take on the challenge in the video below.
