Looks like Assassin's Creed Origins gets 60fps PS5, Xbox Series X/S update soon

UPDATE: Launches this week.

UPDATE 31/5/22: Ubisoft has now confirmed its impending 60fps patch for Assassin's Creed Origins, which will arrive for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S this week, on 2nd June.

That means it'll be ready for you if you're planning to play Oranges via Xbox Game Pass, when it joins Microsoft's subscription service on 7th June.

There's no word yet on any further new content coming to Origins, though it's worth remembering there was a while inbetween Ubisoft's similar 60fps boost for Odyssey and its star Kassandra getting new things to do.


ORIGINAL STORY 19/5/22: Ancient Egypt-set Assassin's Creed Origins looks set to receive a 60fps update for current-gen consoles in the near future.

The update has not yet been officially announced by Ubisoft, but details of its impending arrival on PlayStation 5 were scooped up by PlayStationSize, a Twitter account which regularly crawls behind the scenes of the PlayStation Store.

Patch notes for the update include an option to enable a "higher framerate" on PS5, and a "franchise menu". The update is expected to launch next week.

Assassin's Creed Origins reset the series back to the ancient world.

Ubisoft previously added a 60fps option to Origins sequel Odyssey, the series' brilliant entry set in Ancient Greece. Similarly, Odyssey now boasts a "franchise menu" which shows off and recommends various other recent Assassin's Creed games, such as Valhalla.

When that arrived, Ubisoft said it was investigating the technical possibility of doing similar for Origins and, well, here we are.

Of course, Odyssey's update arrived ahead of a very enjoyable crossover between its star Kassandra and Valhalla's Eivor, with new playable story missions in each game.

Without spoiling anything that went on there, fans are really hoping for similar in Origins, and a new crossover with its brilliant star Bayek. There's no mention of that, so far.
