No discussion of Assassin’s Creed bugs would be complete without mentioning Assassin’s Creed Unity.

If you're looking for 60 fps or higher at 1080p ultra, only the GTX 1070 and above accomplish that feat, though the GTX 1060 and Vega cards can get there at 1080p high settings.

That's a beast of a bow for hunter bow's. Unless you want to benchmark the game outside of the cities, AMD GPUs come up seriously short. For the recommended specs, the GTX 760 is typically around 25 percent slower than the GTX 770, while the R9 280X is about equal to the R9 380 I tested. My personal recommendation for AC Origins would be at least a GTX 1060 6GB. Digital Trends may earn a commission when you buy through links on our site.

You kind of have to go out of your way and abandon stealth all together for that to happen. There was no 10-hour prologue to get through before receiving the famous Assassin robes and weapons, and the Caribbean environments felt much more vibrant than the drab colonial villages of Assassin’s Creed III. The game settings menu estimates VRAM use of about 2.8GB using these settings, so the 1060 3GB still manages to perform well enough, but for very high and ultra quality you'll likely want a 4GB GPU. Though still filled with secret collectibles and missions, the Constantinople setting was also less memorable than Brotherhood’s Rome, and the game’s modern-day story component started to go off the rails and required too much suspension of disbelief. Video card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 or AMD R9 280X (3GB VRAM with Shader Model 5.0 or better).

That's keeping with Ubisoft tradition, which is unfortunate as we'd love to see the modding community tweak some aspects of the game.

Read our full Assassin’s Creed Revelations review. Again, it's impossible to measure the actual performance impact without a working crack, but what I've seen is that CPU utilization jumps way up in the cities, particularly if you're using a fast GPU. If you want to get 60 fps at 4k, your only real choice is going to be 1080 Ti, and then use a combination of medium and high settings. Copyright ©2020 Designtechnica Corporation.

MSI GTX 1070 Ti Gaming 8G

MSI provided all the hardware for my testing with its Gaming X graphics cards for most of the models. This is one of the more demanding individual settings, though turning this down still only improves performance by around six percent. Though, I myself am not crazy about the cursed weapons, too high risk, high reward for me.

But it’s all about personal preferences. AMD performance meanwhile remained flat, with some minor drops in some cases.

Similarly, going from Very High to Ultra only drops performance about three percent, so I'm not sure why Ubisoft felt the need to include six presets when two of them are mostly redundant—we would have been fine with Low/Medium/High/Ultra and just skip the Very Low and Very High alternatives. Why create parts of the game that requires the player to turn the game to easy?

On top of its technical issues, the game was just not interesting, with a contrived love plot dull characters across the board.

Of course, most of the settings only cause a minor change in performance, so there's only a limited ability to improve performance. James: Origins showed that I could totally dismiss the meta-plot of AC and give a damn about the characters. Terrain (Medium/High): adjusts the detail of the terrain, and using the lower setting improves performance by 4-5 percent. Read our full Assassin’s Creed Unity review. The American Revolution setting was almost completely ruined by poor draw distance that made everything look foggy, and the shorter buildings and forests weren’t very fun to climb.

It also means you might see occasional dips in performance if a background task kicks off. There's obviously more work to do to get AC Origins running well on AMD hardware, and Nvidia easily wins any comparisons you might make at these settings. It just means doing other stuff (livestreaming, or watching Twitch on a secondary display) will need more cores/threads than you're used to. Full details of our test equipment and methodology are detailed in our Performance Analysis 101 article. For dealing with bandits without leaving the comfort of your horse, the Ceremonial Staff (flaming scepter) is just the ticket.

New York, All of my current testing was done with the 1.03 patch, using Nvidia's latest 388.13 drivers and AMD's 17.11.1 drivers—which is an update from the initial testing I did at the time of launch. Even the more fantastical elements worked in Odyssey, and it found a sense of humor that was sorely lacking in the other recent games. Bring a fast CPU and an Nvidia GPU for the best ancient Egypt experience. I also did a manual performance run through the starting city of Siwa, including sword fights, assassinations, and riding around on a horse, and found that the built-in benchmark gives a reasonable comparison point.

There's about a 50 percent improvement in performance going from ultra to very low, and up to a 100 percent increase on GPUs with less than 3GB VRAM.

Assassin’s Creed II would serve as the template for the series for nearly a decade, and with good reason. In terms of visuals, going from the Very Low to the Low preset yields a good improvement in image quality with a negligible change in performance (about five percent). Thankfully, Odyssey delivered a more fully-realized vision the next year. For Assassin's Creed Origins on the PlayStation 4, a GameFAQs message board topic titled "What and where is the best weapon in the game". Aim for weapons with bleed, poison, or fire.

Sadly, the way it controls is awkward at best and game-breaking at worst and let's not even talk about how climbing every tree is exactly the same. 1440p requires some serious hardware if you want to come close to 60 fps—and yes, there's a very clear difference in feel between 30 and 60 fps in AC Origins. You'll need a decent GPU to run Origins. Character (Very Low/Low/Medium/High/Very High/Ultra High): level of detail on characters, again with a small one percent impact on performance. It's not character movement but rather framerate and location that largely determines CPU load. We are committed to taking advantage of any performance gains available with the new drivers to help players have the best experience they can in ACO with the hardware they have. If you want a consistent 60+ fps in AC Origins, you'll want a fast graphics card and a fast CPU. Ubisoft says it hasn't used any Nvidia GameWorks libraries this time, and told us, "We have been working very closely with both AMD and NVIDIA for quite a while (and continue to do so) to allow us maximize performance on both GPUs. Not surprisingly, 4k ultra is mostly out of reach for now. But the primary CPU testing, and what I'll focus on here, is done with the GTX 1080 Ti. It was a more focused and refined version of the 2007 original, with a much more likeable protagonist in Ezio and a more challenging combat system. I'll discuss the settings more in a moment, but AC Origins can definitely push your GPU to its limits.
