PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S owners who wish to revisit Assassin’s Creed Origins with a smoother level of performance will seemingly be able to do so beginning as early as next week. That’s according to the latest finds unearthed by Twitter account PlayStationSize, which recently discovered a few new details on the official PlayStation Store that allude to a new Assassin’s Creed Origins patch for enabling higher frame rates, as well as a “franchise menu,” for PS5. The news follows a tweet from Ubisoft that confirmed it was looking into adding 60 FPS support for the critically acclaimed 2017 installment that introduced a massive, open-world Egypt to the long-running franchise. Ubisoft released a 60 FPS update for the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S version of Origins’ Greek-inspired follow-up, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, in August 2021.

Ubisoft previously added a 60fps option to Origins sequel Odyssey, the series’ brilliant entry set in Ancient Greece. Similarly, Odyssey now boasts a “franchise menu” which shows off and recommends various other recent Assassin’s Creed games, such as Valhalla.
When that arrived, Ubisoft said it was investigating the technical possibility of doing similar for Origins and, well, here we are.
Of course, Odyssey’s update arrived ahead of a very enjoyable crossover between its star Kassandra and Valhalla’s Eivor, with new playable story missions in each game.
