Assassin’s Creed Odyssey gets a big PS5 and Xbox Series X|S upgrade

Ubisoft releases welcome patch for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey that gives the game a boost on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S.

Ubisoft has released an update for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, giving the game a boost on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S.

Improved graphics are usually the focus of attention for each new console generation. And while that is obviously important to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S, improved performance is proving to be just as essential.

Ubisoft – a troublesome publisher to praise at the moment, admittedly – is one of the best when it comes to keeping games alive with post-release content and technical enhancements.


Assassin’s Creed Odyssey was released in 2018 and has received an eye-watering number of content expansions that make an already sizeable adventure stupidly large. Ubisoft is now giving the game a welcome frame-rate boost on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S for users playing via backwards compatibility.

The modest-sized update adds 60 FPS support on all three platforms and is available now in all regions.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey – Title Update 1.6.0

Patch Sizes:  

  • Xbox One: ~370MB
  • PlayStation 4: ~470MB

Game Improvement:  

  • This update adds 60 FPS support when running the game on Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 through backwards compatibility.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, which was released last year as a cross-generation title, is already playable at 60 FPS. Hopefully, 2017’s Assassin’s Creed Origins will receive a similar upgrade in due course.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
