Asassin’s Cred Ori­gins

XBox: The Official Magazine - - OXM INVESTIGATES -

For­mat Xbox One X | Re­lease 2017 The Xbox One X is a feral beast, and few third-party ti­tles squeeze more drops of se­cret graph­ics sauce from the 4K bot­tle than Bayek’s Egyp­tian open world. While it’s not tech­ni­cally a full 4K res­o­lu­tion game – nor­mally, Ori­gins runs be­tween 1700-1800p – Ubisoft Mon­treal uses such an ef­fec­tive tem­po­ral anti-alias­ing so­lu­tion, even the most ea­gle-eyed pixel-coun­ters couldn’t tell it’s not ren­der­ing at 2160p. The Xbox One X’s over­clocked, com­bined GPU/CPU so­lu­tion is put through its paces by this Ptole­maic sand­box and its AnvilNext 2.0 en­gine, so it’s a re­lief the con­sole can fall back on 8GB of GDDR5 RAM – this gor­geous slice of An­cient Egypt is lu­di­crously vast. The game ben­e­fited tremen­dously in terms of qual­ity from the fran­chise tak­ing a year off af­ter As­sas­sin’s Creed Syn­di­cate, and Ori­gins is eas­ily one of the best-look­ing Ul­tra HD games around.
