Developer Q&A #4: Hot Community Topics

14/12/2017 09:00 AM

Continued support of Assassin’s Creed® Origins is something very important to all of our development teams. We are always listening to your feedback and we’d love to take this opportunity to answer the most frequently asked questions from the community.

Trials of the Gods

Will Trials of the Gods events be repeated an unlimited number of times?

Trials of the Gods events reoccur regularly. They're meant to give new challenges to endgame players –but don’t worry if you are not yet up to the task. Please don't rush, and continue enjoying the game at your own pace.

All Trials of the Gods events will rotate regularly, so no one will miss out on a challenging activity or its unique rewards.

Post-Launch Content

Will there be more legacy outfits?

We heard you loud and clear! We’re happy to introduce Edward Kenway’s outfit as a token of our own past. Anyone can claim it in the Ubisoft Club.

Will there be a New Game+ option added to Assassin’s Creed Origins?

We know that a large number of community members have requested a New Game+ feature. We are currently investigating the possibility of implementing this option in a future title update.


Does the PC version of the game include HDR support?

Yes, the PC HDR support was introduced in our latest Title Update 6 version 1.1.0. However, HDR support on PC is highly dependent on the drivers and Windows versions being used. Therefore, in order to benefit from the best experience possible, make sure to follow the setup guidelines and requirements here.

Will there be a PC-specific optimization update in the future?

We have been continuously adding optimizations for all platforms, which of course includes PC.

One of the benefits of the PC version of Assassin’s Creed Origins not being a port has been that, for the most part, any engine or render improvements are shared across all platforms. As soon as we identify a performance gain, we can move to introduce it into the most immediate upcoming title update that our timeline permits.

Franchise Plot

Will there be add-on content explaining the origins of the Isu for Assassin’s Creed Origins?

No, there will not be add-on content centered on the First Civilization. The two expansions for Assassin’s Creed Origins are:

  • The Hidden Ones [Expansion #1]
  • This expansion takes place years after the events of Assassin’s Creed Origins in a new region occupied by a Roman force. Bayek and the new Assassins will clash with the Romans as the Brotherhood continues to grow. Slated for release in January 2018.

  • The Curse of the Pharoahs [Expansion #2]
  • The second expansion focuses on Egyptian mythology, pitting players against undead pharaohs and famed Egyptian monsters. Bayek will need to explore a mystical new realm and discover the root of the curse that has brought these creatures to life. Scheduled for a March 2018 launch.

We will release more information on these closer to their respective releases.

Why was the Ankh mentioned in Assassin’s Creed Rogue but not seen in Assassin’s Creed Origins?

There are multiple pieces of Eden, and Assassin’s Creed Origins shows a glimpse into Egypt’s history. The Ankh story is one we may tell in the future!

What role do the comic books play in advancing the main plot of the franchise?

The main story in each game is the one set in the past, where the player will spend dozens, if not hundreds, of hours. The present-day plotlines, or the ‘meta-story,’ are the elements that revolve around multiple characters and plots, showcasing the struggle between Templar and Assassins in current times.

Desmond’s saga started, expanded, and ended in the main games. After a couple of years, iterating on different versions, we decided to get back to the modern day gaming section with a main playable protagonist. That new modern day hero is Layla in Assassin’s Creed Origins.

The transmedia at large has been used to expand on characters or to create new and exciting things in our universe (including comics, novels, movie, animated shorts, etc…). That is how Daniel Cross, Galina, and Otso Berg were created before appearing in the game. Juno’s story is part of the modern day story and part of Desmond’s cycle, yet the main story is not limited to Juno’s journey.
