Assassin’s Creed Odyssey – 20 minutes of 4K “Maxed Out” PC gameplay released

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is set to release next month on PC, Xbox One and PS4, offering several refinements over the game’s predecessor, Assassin’s Creed: Origins, offering a game with a larger scale while completing Assassin’s Creed’s transformation into a fully fledged RPG. 

So far, most footage for Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey has been limited to the game’s console versions, preventing PC gamers to see what their high-end hardware is capable of. Now Gaming Trends has released 20 minutes of PC gameplay for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. At this time it is unknown what settings this gameplay uses, or what hardware was required to run it at such a smooth framerate. 

The footage below showcases the first 26 minutes of the game, though this amounts to around 20 minutes of gameplay after cutscenes are taken into account. 

 
Assassin’s Creed Origins was a huge hardware hog on PC, demanding a high-end CPU, and insane levels of GPU performance at the game’s highest settings. This time, Ubisoft has partnered with AMD to help optimise the game, who will no doubt focus their efforts on better utilising the company’s high core count Ryzen processors and Radeon series graphics cards.
