Ubisoft has brought back the option to pass time in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. Meditating allows your character to wait around to pass time, causing the time of day to instantly shift from day to night, or vice versa. We’ll explain how to pass time in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey so that you can control the daylight to your preferences. 

How to Meditate and Pass Time 

Passing time in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is very easy. Simply press and hold down the touchpad on your PS4 controller or the View button on an Xbox One controller to begin meditating. On PC, meditation is mapped to the M key by default. This will cause the sun to quickly shift across the sky, changing the time to roughly half a day ahead from when you began meditating. 

It’s important to note that meditating cannot be done while you are in dangerous areas or are engaged in combat. Make sure you are in a safe location before attempting to altar the time of day.

Although passing time doesn’t have much of a direct impact on the game, there are still a few reasons to do so in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. Passing time to change the time of day can affect the movement of citizens and guards in a location, which can allow you to sneak into buildings to steal items when no one is around. 

Meditating and passing time also comes in handy when trying to take cool photos using the game’s photo mode. Different levels of daylight can make for some impressive shots if you play with the lighting angles just right. If you find a great spot to take a photo, consider experimenting with different times of day to enhance the lighting in your photo and create different effects.
