Assassin’s Creed Origins saved an almost-dying video game series when it came out back in 2017. The game was critically acclaimed for its story and outstanding visual fidelity. Four years from its release, it is still one of the best Assassin’s Creed games ever in the history of this long-running series. However, the game ran at 1080p 30 fps on the last-gen PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, which was what those consoles were capable of.
Because the game hasn’t been patched yet, it runs at 4K 30 fps on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X and Series S too. Although 30 fps is fine for a story-driven game like Assassin’s Creed Origins, it does not truly utilize the full power of modern-day consoles, which is a bit daunting.
Recently, Ubisoft India made a celebratory post over on their Twitter account which celebrates AC Day. Ubisoft also thanked all fans for their continued support and added a line showing their humbleness towards the massive community the series has garnered. They also teased upcoming AC Valhalla content through this tweet.
All this information might seem useless concerning Assassin’s Creed Origins and its upcoming 60 fps patch. However, a far more interesting detail is Ubisoft India’s reply to this tweet. The reply stated that Ubisoft had no specific details about the 60 fps patch, but could confirm that they are looking forward to adding 60 fps support to AC: Origins.
The fact that a tweet teasing more AC: Valhalla content and a 60 fps patch confirmation for AC: Origins are tied together could mean much more big news. We already have confirmation for an Assassin’s Creed Crossover DLC. The 60 fps patch could also suggest Ubisoft is working on bringing Bayek or other characters from Assassin’s Creed Origins into this Crossover DLC. However, this is mere speculation, and we are just chasing our imagination here. Although this would be pretty awesome, it could just never happen.
Regardless, this is some great news. Ubisoft is working hard behind the scenes on our beloved Assassin’s Creed series. We can’t wait for what they have in store for us!
