Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Just Got A Massive Performance Boost

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey was a big turning point for the stealth-killer series, because, in many ways, it stopped being a stealth-killer series. The third-person historical action title took the series to Greece in a bold step away from the norm for the franchise - borrowing concepts from Assassin’s Creed Origins to move from stealth to brute force with a more complex combat system.

It was a controversial move for long-time fans of the franchise, but it’s proven successful, as the game’s follow-up, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, was one of the first official titles to make it to next-gen consoles. And now, Odyssey has stepped up to meet Valhalla in performance.

What is Assassin’s Creed Odyssey's Next-Gen Boost?

As part of a new update, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey players are now able to meet next-gen standards on the latest consoles. The update was released today (August 24) to allow for players on the Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 consoles to now hit 60fps without a huge load of storage to be dumped on their hardware.

Despite Odyssey being great for its time when it was released in 2018, you only have to look at the fact Ghost of Tsushima has had an upgrade in just a year to show we expect more. Whereas Odyssey was once pinned down to a 30fps maximum on the Xbox One and PS4/ PS4 Pro, it’s nice to see the game shape up to run similarly to the latest game in the series.

How Do I Download The Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Next-Gen Upgrade?

All you have to do to download the update is open Assassin's Creed Odyssey on your console and it’ll prompt you to start the download - it’s really as easy as that to get your hands on the next-gen upgrade of Ubisoft's Greek tragedy.

The download will be only 370MB on Xbox and 470MB on PlayStation too, so it won’t be a huge weight on your console either.

It’s great news that Odyssey is set to look even better on next-gen consoles. All in all, it means there’s no better time to jump into Odyssey and pick whether you want to play as Alexios or Kassandra.
