Around five years after the release, a new update for Assassin’s Creed Origins arrives. This is primarily aimed at owners of the new generation of consoles, but PC gamers can also expect a few improvements.
This is (probably) in update 1.6.0
First and foremost, patch 1.6.0 for AC Origins brings the ability to play the game at 60 FPS on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S. Additionally, a new Franchise menu is making its way into the main menu, as per the official post on the Ubisoft forums.
However, these improvements do not explain why update 1.60 weighs in at a whopping 2.9 GB on PC. Apparently numerous bug fixes are finding their way into the game after the previous patch caused a few problems. Performance and stability are also said to have been improved.
Detailed patch notes are not yet available. At least you can find the provisional download sizes here, with the data for the new generation of consoles to be submitted later:
- PC: around 2.9GB
- Xbox One: rund 3GB
- PlayStation 4: around 8.2GB
We’ll keep you posted and will update this message as more information and official patch notes become available.
What’s happening in Assassin’s Creed?
The AC series in particular often has to take a beating for its formulaic world design. In the GameStar podcast we discuss what makes a really good open world for us. Small spoiler: It has little to do with size.
As early as the end of 2021, information about a new Assassin’s Creed leaked out that could overturn Ubisoft’s usual approach. You can read what it could be about in our analysis of Assassin’s Creed Infinity.
Finally, we put the Mark of Ragnarok DLC to our test. The addon for the latest series part AC Valhalla can be entertaining, but it also misses opportunities along the way.
