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)
  • CPU: Intel Core i5 2400 3.1GHz or Ryzen 3 1200 or AMD FX 6300 3.8GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 2GB Video Memory with Shader Model 5.0
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 or AMD Radeon R9 285
  • RESOLUTION: 720p
  • FPS: 30 frames per second target
  • SETTING: Low video preset
  • DX: DirectX June 2010 Redistributable
  • HD: 46GB

Assassins Creed Odyssey Recommended System Requirements (30FPS @ 1080p High Settings)

  • OS: Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 (64-bit versions only)
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-3770 3.5 GHz or Ryzen 5 1400 or AMD FX-8350 4.0 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 4GB Video Memory with Shader Model 5.0
  • GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 4GB or AMD Radeon R9 290X 4GB
  • RESOLUTION: 1080p
  • FPS: 30 frames per second target
  • SETTING: High video preset
  • DX: DirectX June 2010 Redistributable
  • HD: 46GB

Assassins Creed Odyssey Recommended 4K System Requirements (30FPS @ 4K High Settings)

  • 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 1080 or AMD Radeon Vega 64
  • RESOLUTION: 4K
  • FPS: 30 frames per second target
  • SETTING: High video preset
  • DX: DirectX June 2010 Redistributable
  • HD: 46GB

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.

Running on 30FPS on this game is not a shame. For this cind of games you do not need 60FPS, but that's my experience with non-multiplayer games. I hope i can run it on med/high.

NO, it is not... It is not year 2000's. Multiplayer, or not, Action, RPG or FPS game. It doesn't matter. 60 fps > 30 fps, and 1080p/60 fps it should be a standard in modern gaming.

Bullcrap, I can play with 30fps just as good as I play with 60, 120 or more FPS... -_-
It's important to have a constant FPS more than having high FPS, I will take a 99.9% 30fps than a fluctuating 60-120fps every day of the week... I'm not a fan of micro stutters, I also adapt really easily to 30fps, so get gut and learn to adapt... once adapted you don't notice it and don't think it's bad...

Well I played Origins at absolute Max settings at 1440p for 60 FPS.


Not only did it run well but visually it's one of the best looking games ever released. The game was demanding and rightly so.


As for Odyssey, it looks like another demanding game but I'm sure there will be plenty of options to adjust to get to 60 and it'll no doubt still look great.


Nice to see Ubisoft still making the effort for PC gamers with their PC requirement, excessive range of graphic options and actual side by side comparisons detailing the changes in game. Other devs need to take note.

Its a good thing I didn't pre-order this game. Seriously Unoptimized. Devs are just getting lazy and no matter how good the GPUs released are, devs just claim that their sub-par game is so beautiful it needs the freaking world to run it.

That's not the point, he is speaking on behalf of everyone, these acts of "leaning back" on new tech makes what you bought 2yrs ago as high-end not so high-end.

Count yourself lucky 12 years ago a AAA game wouldn't even run properly on a high end card that was 4 years old just think about that.

@Shadespirit: Wizz is absolutely right, this is nothing new. AAA games have always lasted no more than a few years on high end GPUs (assuming ultra settings at 4K these days). Like it or not, that's just how it is.

It just goes to show quickly graphics software and hardware technology is evolving. It's not being "lazy" or "laid back" it's called advancement. That's a fact.

the fact is that companies want us to make the jump to 4k or 144Hz offering us tons of products like monitors, but game companies still cant achieve good fps on 1080 with a 1060 cause their games "look beautiful". So is a little bit contradictory to us, gamers, who are in the middle of the sandwich as i see it.

From what I can tell, to achieve 1080p 60 FPS on Ultra you simply need a setup that you would need to achieve the same on many of the other titles out there, so I don't really see what this fuss is about. As for the so-old-so-tiring-so-knowledge-lacking claims regarding developers being lazy at optimizing their games in general, most people clearly know nothing about the technicalities of this industry and prefer to cling to these simpler explanations such as the developers being lazy.

Bingo Bango, people think that if they have the best hardware, that software isn't good enough to put their hardware to their knees, in fact, software is limited by hardware, not the other way around... And I love how people are totally fine with crysis games running like crap due to poor optimization, but much better-looking games tons more things on the screen with ton of AI and dynamic objects to grab and so on, are viewed as poorly optimized. People are sheep really XD
