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
- Xbox One: ~370MB
- PlayStation 4: ~470MB
- 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.
