Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Bayek Unlock Guide

With the recent news of this arrival, many will be wondering what you need to do to unlock Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Bayek. This guide will show you all you need to know about how to unlock the first assassin for the ancient Greek entry into the franchise, as well as what he does.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Bayek- What is Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Bayek?

In Assasin’s Creed Odyssey, Bayek will be available as a special lieutenant on your ship. This means that he will be able to add various strong bonuses to your ship during combat. He will also be able to be summoned during land combat through the “Call to Arms” skill. When used, if Bayek is equipped, he will distract and attack enemies for 20 seconds.

How to Unlock Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Bayek

To obtain Bayek in Assasin’s Creed Odyssey, you will need to purchase him from Ubisoft Club. This free service is similar to the My Nintendo service. You can clear various challenges to receive either in-game currencies or the Ubisoft Club exclusive units. You will need to have 40 units available to receive Bayek.

Once you have enough units, you will need to proceed to the Ubisoft Club menu. This is accessible in the main menu, where it can be found at the bottom underneath “Options.” Proceed into the sub-menu, and find the Bayek lieutenant option. He should then be available for you to use on the Adrestia.

Some fans on Reddit, however, are finding that they cannot unlock the Egyptian assassin just yet. Many are finding that neither him nor Evie Frye from Assasin’s Creed Syndicate can be equipped as lieutenants. The current prevailing fix to this is to finish the main questline. However, as of writing this seems to be a simple bug and may be addressed by Ubisoft in future.
