Assassin’s Creed Origins was revealed at Microsoft’s E3 presser, and so far, it has been shown extensively on the Xbox One X. This has led many to suspect that the game may have some sort of marketing deal with Microsoft- much like 2014’s Assassin’s Creed Unity did.

Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot, speaking to Gamespot, has confirmed that there is some manner of deal in place- though of course, he did not delve into any specifics.

“We did a deal with Microsoft on Assassin’s Creed: Origins, which is taking really good advantage of the power of the machine. We like very much what they are doing because instead of having a Kinect or something this time the industry went after more power for the machine, so more immersion, better AI, and overall better games.

“We like that because it means the industry will grow because the better the experiences, the more people want to have it. We think it has a good potential. If Microsoft is really behind it, it can do well,” Guillemot told GameSpot.

It sounds like Ubisoft at least is on board with the Xbox One X- then again, Ubisoft is always willing to jump head first into new hardware and new industry paradigms, even before anyone else. They were aong the most ardent supporters of the Wii, DS, 3DS, PS Vita, Wii U, PS Move, Kinect, VR, and even the Nintendo Switch- so it makes sense to see them all on board with the Xbox One X, too. Assassin’s Creed Origins launches on October 27 for the Xbox One, PS4, and PC.

    This doesn’t really mean anything other than a marketing deal imo. Phil said they wouldn’t be doing any 3rd party multiplat exlclusive content, so people are jumpin the gun imo.

      From Jez Corden – WindowsCentral:

      “I spoke to a developer from Ubisoft working on that game and inquired about the version parity between PS4 Pro and Xbox One X. He told me that Assassin’s Creed Origins will be 4K at 30 FPS on both the Xbox One X and PS4 Pro, which I found a little confusing. If the PS4 Pro can handle 4K 30, how is Assassin’s Creed Origins utilizing the Xbox One X’s additional overhead? It isn’t, apparently.

      The developer told me that both versions use dynamic resolution scaling to maintain frame rate stability, so more intense scenes might see the 4K resolution drop below momentarily to keep the game running smoothly. He said that the Xbox One X version’s resolution would most likely drop below True 4K far less often, and perhaps not at all when compared to the PS4 Pro, but also that the differences would be “imperceptible to the human eye.”
      If the difference between Assassin’s Creed Origins across Xbox One X and PS4 Pro will be imperceptible, and this trend extends to other major third-party AAA games like Call of Duty: WW2 and Destiny 2, what’s the point of getting an Xbox One X over a PS4 Pro?”

      Very interesting. I’d of atleast hoped they’d push for Ultra settings on the X1X….Origins looks good, but the combat is so bad it annoys me to watch it. I just can’t buy it! Lol

      “the Xbox One X version’s resolution would most likely drop below True 4K far less often, and perhaps not at all when compared to the PS4 Pro”

      That is the part people will take notice of when Digital Foundry do side by side comparisons.

      No one wants second best on multi format titles.

    • MickaelSuarez

      “No one wants second best on multi format titles.”
      No one ? Are you sure ?
      Around 30 million Xbox One have been already sold, it’s twice less than PS4, but clearly not “no one”

    • Fweds

      I’m sure, there was no choice before but from November that choice will be there, i agree that the 30 million is a great sign that people want Xbox over PlayStation and very soon they will have an even better choice as will new console buyers of also having the best multiplayer experience.

    • MickaelSuarez

      “I’m sure, there was no choice before”
      No choice ?

      “from November that choice will be there”
      Just remember that even Phil Spencer isn’t expecting selling more X than S.

      And clearly, with a $100 and maybe $150 difference, the X must clearly outperform the Pro for being appealing to a wider public than the actual Xbox customers.

      “If the difference between Assassin’s Creed Origins across Xbox One X and PS4 Pro will be imperceptible, and this trend extends to other major third-party AAA games like Call of Duty: WW2 and Destiny 2, what’s the point of getting an Xbox One X over a PS4 Pro?”

      I see you are getting 5 Fake Upvotes from “Mrxrat” Upvote Bot on all your posts now !, so you are likely to be him as a multi which means no further discussion with you.

      Good day.

    • MickaelSuarez

      ?
      If someone like my comment, he upvote it, i don’t have any problem with that.

      On my 1st comment, Mark also upvote my comment, does it mean that my account belong to him ?

      You have upvote the comment of THE4point2TFLOPweakness, does it mean that you are THE4point2TFLOPweakness ?

    • Fweds

      Ok I will explain it once, Mrxrat uses multis and pretends to be more than one person on most posts, he also uses an Upvote Bot(look at the names) which means the Upvotes are fake, it is currently given 5 Upvotes. I

      Yes you can also get real Upvotes as well but unfortunately because the Upvote Bot is being used no one really takes any of those votes or posts seriously.

    • MickaelSuarez

      And so what is the link with my account ?

    • Mr Xrat

      When that hypershill Jez Corden can’t even talk up ACO what other hope is there?

    • THE4point2TFLOPweakness

      Outdated info mr sony poopnie hahaha

    • MickaelSuarez

      “mr sony poopnie”
      Cute, how old are you ?

      “Outdated info”
      Outdated no, read carefully
      “He said that the Xbox One X version’s resolution would most likely drop below True 4K far less often, and perhaps not at all when compared to the PS4 Pro, but also that the differences would be “imperceptible to the human eye.””
      So yeah, even if they maintain a “4k” resolution on X, the differences will be “imperceptible to the human eye for the dev…

    • THE4point2TFLOPweakness

      The Protato will not even sniff 4K haha

    • MickaelSuarez

      What eloquence! /s

      Once again, read carefully… if you can…

  • Mr Xrat

    Yep, just like Unity, and we all know how that went.

  • Fweds

    Well he did get 5 Upvotes, Oh hang on ! Just noticed they are fake to get himself to the top of the page.

  • Mr Xrat

    Yep, another game tied to MS’ failing console that performed inexplicably worse than on PS4 and even PC. There’s only one reason for that, of course.

    SOW is another third-party that tied itself to S**tbox and got corrupted by MS’ cancer. First the delay now the loot crate microtransactions. It keeps happening!
