It is difficult to gauge how widespread the problem is, but Ubisoft is already looking into resolving the known issues.
Last week, Assassin’s Creed Origins had received a sizeable update with 1.03 which added Xbox One X enhancement support, new photo mode features and also fixed some known issues. Then patch 1.04 was released earlier this week on Monday which aimed at offering improvements to performance and stability.
Since the release of these patches however, many users have stated that these have led to a visual downgrade across the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro and the Xbox One. Poor draw distance and removed texture filtering are among the issues cited. “Since the last patch lighting, pop-ins, textures, and draw distances seemed have been tampered with. I had little to no problem with performance before so I don’t know why they changed this so much,” wrote a Reddit user. Similar issues have been reported across Reddit and even the Assassin’s Creed Forum.
The problem doesn’t seem to be universal and it’s difficult to gauge exactly how many people are experiencing this problem. Ubisoft has already begun trying to figure out the source of the problem. “We received a few reports from players that after the 1.03 update that there were drops in the draw distance. Is this the issue you are experiencing after installing update 1.04? If so did you also experience this after installing update 1.03? As I mentioned this was reported and is currently being investigated,” stated one Ubisoft Support Staff Member.
Hopefully, they are able to resolve these issues as soon as possible so that players can go back to having a great experience from the game.
