Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed Origins has received another update, bringing the PS4 version up to version 1.05 and weighing 1.3 GB. It will be releasing for Xbox One on November 20th with more information on the PC update coming when it’s available.

The update tweaks quite a few things like the difficulty of enemies in Hard Mode. If they’re below your level, they’ll pose more of a challenge than before. Other gameplay changes include the ability to toggle Bayek’s hair and beard selection, improved animations and navigation for the man, better shield stance behaviour when in a vehicle or on a mount and improved reactions and navigation from NPCs and animals.

Assassin’s Creed Origins has received a number of updates including a limited time event called Trials of the Gods that allowed players to battle against Anubis and gain some special loot as a prize. Some updates seem to have affected the game’s overall visual fidelity and it remains to be seen how Ubisoft will fix it. Check out the full patch notes here and some highlights below.
