Official Assassins Creed Odyssey system requirements announced by Ubisoft state they have optimised the game for AMD graphics cards and processors, where Ubi and AMD worked together during development. Interestingly they announce the requirements for 30FPS, so the official minimum and recommended system requirements for Assassins Creed Odyssey for 1080p, 720p and 4K are...

Assassins Creed Odyssey Minimum System Requirements (30FPS @ 720p Low Settings)

  • OS: Windows 7 64 bit, Win 8.1, Win 10 (64bit only)

As you can see Ubi have sent through the Assassins Creed Odyssey requirements for achieving 30 frames per second at 720p minimum specs, 1080p recommended specs and 4K recommended specs. When looking at last years AC Origins min requirements we can see that it also needed the GTX 660 to be able to run the game on low settings.

If your PC hardware could run AC: Origins last year then your PC should be able to run Assassins Creed Odyssey in a similar way this year.

If you are wondering what graphics cards series and individual cards are supported by Assassins Creed Odyssey at release on October 5th 2018?

Then the following list of graphics video cards series AMD Radeon R9 285/R9 380/RX 460/RX 560 or better, AMD Radeon 200/300/Fury X/400/500 series, Radeon Vega series: RX Vega 56 or better, NVIDIA GeForce® GTX 660/760/950/1050 or better, GeForce® GTX 600/700/900/10-Series, is the complete list of Assassins Creed Odyssey supported graphics cards at time of release.

Assassins Creed Odyssey will release on PC, PS4 and Xbox ONE in just under a month.

If you are looking to get a solid 60 FPS at 1080p high graphics settings on Assassins Creed Odyssey then we recommend an Intel i7 or Ryzen 5 1600 coupled with at least 8GB RAM, preferably 16GB, and either a GTX 1060 or a AMD R9 Fury.

Looking over these Assassins Creed Odyssey specs and considering performance from the previous title we can offer up some predicted Assassins Creed Odyssey Ultra 1080p requirements for your reference.

Assassins Creed Odyssey Ultra System Requirements (60FPS@ 1080p, predicted)

  • OS: Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 (64-bit versions only)
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-7700 4.2 GHz or Ryzen 1700X 3.8GHz
  • RAM: 16 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 8GB Video Memory with Shader Model 5.0
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 or AMD Radeon Vega 56
  • RESOLUTION: 1080p
  • FPS: 60 frames per second target
  • SETTING: Ultra video preset

These Ultra requirements for Assassins Creed Odyssey will get you playing very comfortably with almost all settings turned up to max at 1080p and achieving stable frame rates. This set of hardware is also a good spec for 1440p Assassins Creed Odyssey gameplay. So those people who like to run with a larger monitor size at high or above graphics settings will likely find the Ultra spec a very nice graphical experience in this next installment of AC.

What Game Engine Is Assassins Creed Odyssey Running on?

Like Assassins before it, the Assassins Creed Odyssey will run on the Anvil Engine. The lead dev team on AC Odyssey is Ubisoft Quebec, however there is a dedicated PC team for Odyssey's PC development, which is Ubisoft Kiev.

One unique PC feature for AC Odyssey is Dynamic Resolution Rendering, which untethers the rendered screen resolution to achieve a better frame per second rate.

So for example, you might venture out into the wilds and your Odyssey frame rate starts to drop as your GPU trys to render the greater distances. Instead of losing frame rates the Dynamic Resolution Rendering option would kick in and automatically lower the rendered resolution from say 1080p to 900p in order to gain you back the lost FPS. But once you move back indoors and your FPS naturally raises the rendered resolution goes back up to 1080p.

The PC version of AC Odyssey will also include some benchmarking tools to help compare and refine your games appearance and stability, in accordance to your hardware capabilities. This is always appreciated.

Ok, and as usual lets see if we can help each other out. If you played the previous Assassins Creed, please comment below with what graphics setting you played at, what resolution and what avg frame rate you felt you got, if you can remember what you got or think you got. Or state whether you felt the game ran badly for some reason on your PC setup. Its all helpful.
