Ubisoft has been busy furiously patching Assassin’s Creed Origins once more. As we said in our review, it’s an awesome game but its vast ambition is matched by the number of bugs and performance issues that can be encountered. None of it is game-breaking, but it sure can be distracting.

Fortunately, the latest 1.05 patch for Assassin’s Creed Origins tackles dozens and dozens up these issues, including a few PC-specific ones such as improved performance and stability, multi-GPU performance and a fix for an infinite loading loop and black screen hang that some of your poor mites have had to put up with.

One other really big change is a fix for the level of detail issues. This is a fix for all platforms as, after the 1.03 update, some folks were experiencing texture quality and LoD deteriorating over time. It didn’t seem to affect everyone, but for those that did run into this, it’s a vital fix.

I know it’s really small but I think my favourite change though is a fix for the whistle sometimes not happening when you call for your mount. It seemed to muck up if you were performing an action while whistling, and my camel would just coming tearing in after my silent call to usher him (her?) in from the wilderness.

Scene does not want to cr4ck the game because its broken in so many ways and ubicr4p does not want to fix the game because scene will cr4ck it faster then anyone can smell a silent fart so this is how it will go:



  • after 1 year there will be a "complete edition".

  • a week later it will be cr4cked.

  • a month or 2 later ubigreed will remove vmpotect.

  • a week later it will be cr4cked, again.

  • 3 to 4 months later ubiglitch will remove denuv0.

  • after almost 2 years this game will be cr4cked again as a real complete edition.

  • Assassin's Creed: Origins Delayed but Fixed Edition, coming in 2019 lol

you are just waiting for a cracked game so you keep screaming Denuvo when there is no concrete proof that that Denuvu is indeed hurting the game

It's heartening to see devs try...at least try to fix their issues with ongoing support. I really hope it gets patched out soon.

Try this: Change the display refresh rate, in the game's settings menu, from 60Hz to 50Hz and enable Vsync. Then drop LOD and Shadow to around High setting. Now, let me know if you get locked 50fps during gameplay. Targeting 50Hz instead of 60 allows some breathing room for quad-core i5 CPUs in this game.

origins will not be in discount for a long time, probably summer sale will be the one. i didnt encounter any significant bugs and i finished the game before this patch was out. just saying that you can play it safely if you want to.
