How will Assassin’s Creed Origins leverage the power of the Xbox One X?
Assassin’s Creed Origins will be visually stunning and fun on all platforms, but thanks to the power of the Scorpio engine, the Xbox One X will let players experience the most beautiful version of our game with all the stunning details, beautiful landscapes and incredible cities of Ancient Egypt.
- Assassin’s Creed Origins uses the power of the Scorpio engine to render the game in 4K resolution on 4K-capable screens. 4K allows us to make the work of our teams really stand out as we can display more of the details and textures they created. For players without 4K screens, the fact that the game renders in 4K will result in an oversampled image of higher quality on their 1080p displays.
- With Dolby Atmos players will feel right at the centre of Ancient Egypt, hearing more details with greater sound fidelity such as flocks of birds flying overhead for an immersive experience.
- With HDR, skies appear more realistic than ever with tons of subtle colour change in the blues. Sunsets look spectacular and fire effects are displayed more vibrantly and beautifully. Shadows now use bigger texture buffers to appear sharper and more detailed than on any other console version.
- Due to the greater amount of memory and more powerful CPU of the Xbox One X, Assassin’s Creed Origins can maintain higher quality architectural models, vegetation, rocks and display them at longer Draw Distances in dense environments like the grand cities of Alexandria and Memphis.
4K: 4K Ultra HD not available on the Xbox One or Xbox One S consoles.
HDR: HDR functionality available with supported games and TVs.
Xbox One X Enhanced: Enhanced features for Xbox One X subject to release of a content update. Games information at xbox.com/enhanced.
