Assassin’s Creed Odyssey will officially get 60 FPS support on both PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S through backward compatibility tomorrow, August 24.
Ubisoft shared the news on Twitter, revealing that it will be part of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’s Title Update 1.6.0. This is obviously a welcome addition for those with next-gen consoles, especially as there is no proper PS5 or Xbox Series X/S version of 2018’s Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.
Adding 60 FPS support to older games is becoming a big trend in this PS5 and Xbox Series X/S generation, and Assassin’s Creed Odyssey follows such games as Dark Souls 3 and The Last of Us Part 2 in giving fans another reason to jump back in.
In our review of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, we said that its “open-world adventure through ancient Greece is a gorgeous thrill, and the best the series has ever been.”
Assassin’s Creed games are known for their post-launch support, from bug fixes to expansions to DLC, and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is no different as it recently got its Siege of Paris expansion.
Bringing Assassin’s Creed Odyssey to 60 FPS is great for fans who want to jump back in to the story or experience it for the first time and get ready for Assassin’s Creed Infinity – a game that represents a huge shift in the franchise as it is reportedly an online platform that could include multiple historical setting and evolve over time in a way seen in Fortnite and Grand Theft Auto Online.
