Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed Origins is looking good on the Xbox One X, as new gameplay footage from CenterStrain01 on YouTube showcased 17 minutes of the open world action adventure running on the console. The city of Memphis is revealed in all of its glory.

In a new Q&A, Ubisoft noted the numerous ways that Assassin’s Creed Origins would take advantage of the Xbox One X. Along with support for 1080p and 4K resolutions, with images on 1080p displays being oversampled. Dolby Atmos provides greater sound fidelity while high dynamic range (HDR) lighting will provide more realistic skies. Sunsets and fire effects look more vibrant while shadows use greater texture buffers to appear sharper than other consoles.

That’s not all though. The draw distance for grass, plants and whatnot is twice as far as the Xbox One while the larger memory and CPU allow for higher quality architecture and vegetation. The added memory also allows for faster transitions from Senu (the eagle) to Bayek. The development team also noted that the Xbox One X allowed players to see “even more of the details of the world the team created” thus allowing for a more stunning rendition of Ancient Egypt.

Assassin’s Creed Origins is out on October 27th for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

    “Sunsets and fire effects look more vibrant while shadows use greater texture buffers to appear sharper than other consoles. The draw distance is twice as far as the Xbox One while the larger memory and CPU allow for higher quality architecture and vegetation”.

    That’s it? Man, the original Xbox One must have been straight garbage compared to the base PS4. What shallow upgrades these “enhanced” games are offering sure don’t sound like enough justification to spend another 500 bones for the so-called “best 3rd party console version of a game” over the PS4 Pro, let alone the Xbox One, and One S. I wonder what measly amount these fools are being offered for trade-in towards their Xbox One just to get some “higher quality architecture and vegetation”. Hilariousness!!!

    They sound so desperate to justify that $500 price tag….

    Honestly it will be nearly impossible while making sure all games run on Xbox One hardware.

    Slightly higher resolution and framerate don’t sell consoles…exclusives / good prices do.

    • StarkyLuv

      Slightly higher resolution and framrate are what Sony fanboys screamed from the mountaintops the last 4 years. I wonder what changed…

    • talocaca

      Maybe we check different sites.

      Yes…it was nice to have the best versions of multiplatform games (specially since the PS4 was cheaper than the Xbox one at launch).

      However most people own a PS4 for the exclusives.

      Uncharted, Horizon, Persona 5, Yakuza, Hellblade, Until Dawn, Ratchet and Clank, Bloodhound, The Last Guardian, Nioh….I could keep going.

      Honestly the one game that I feel I missed out by not having an Xbox is Sunset Overdrive….mostly because Microsoft paid to make it exclusive….and it was made by Insomniac, a developer that owes a lot of their success to Sony.

      You’re completely right. Sony has the best exclusives, and trust me, Sunset Overdrive is fun, but it wasn’t a game to flaunt. That’s the thing that sucks about console wars. Xbox fanboys flaunt Sunset Overdrive, and Sony fanboys downplay it, ignoring the fact that it was developed by the beloved Insomniac (that’s not sarcasm, I love Insomniac). If Sunset Overdrive had been a PS4 exclusive though, Sony fanboys would’ve raised it on a flagpole and toted it as one of Insomniac’s greatest games, while Xbox fanboys would’ve said it was just “meh.” This is the curse of fanboyism, and it needs to stop. Sometimes I wish I could resist the urge to read these comments. Lol

      if resolutiongate and the bad PR taste everyone had in their mouths from the year prior weren’t factors, Sunset Overdrive would already have a sequel by now.

    • José

      Yes, but until the middle of 2016 sony practically had no exclusive, and if I’m not mistaken * sarcastic mode on* the Xbox wasn’t in front, even though as early as 2014 the price of the two consoles were the same and the Xbox had great exclusives…
      concluding, exclusive sell but are not the main reason, and probably the X will show that.

    • zcar_driver

      I know there are more exclusives for the ps4, but..
      The games you listed are 3rd person games. I don’t care for 3rd person games. I did try Sunset Overdrive when it was free. Glad I didn’t pay for it. Played maybe 1hr. I have thought of getting a PS4 for GT sport, but with forza/PC2 I am ok. Is there any FPS exclusives for the ps4 to make it worth my while?

    • V3

      Because that’s what mattered at the begining of the gen. Now that the Ps4 is getting 3rd part exclusives and devs abandon the X1, it’s the most important thing.

  • Mr Xrat

    All those crumbs and it’ll still be another dead open world at 30fps with medium textures.

      I’ve told you before, I own both consoles, and love them both. You need to stop being so hateful, you’re a virus to the entire gaming community. That being said, I feel the need to make two points. I take it you never played State of Decay because it’s a Xbox exclusive. It was a surprise hit for many, and State of Decay 2 is the only Xbox One exclusive I’m really stoked for. Sony does have the better exclusives, which is why I own both consoles. I use my PS4 solely for it’s exclusives, the only reason I bought it. All the multiplatform games I play on Xbox One (better online service, best in class controller), and there are many who own both consoles that do the same. I will say this, Xbox Live is a much better service than PSN. PSN just got hacked (again) so I’ve already updated my password. You should do the same, bud.

    Can’t wait for this. Might be in the minority here but these upgrades sound exciting. I love the free enhancements and am a bit overwhelmed by the back catalog of games I want to load up. Maybe ill finally finish tomb raider.

  • C. Hoffer

    Anyone that owns a One/S would be well served to upgrade and throw the old console out. At least the new console is worthy of playing games on.
    As for the writer… would be better if they drew up a comparison to similar systems rather than the weakest of the lot.
