Ashraf Ismail, the director of the upcoming Assassin’s Creed game, has gone on record saying that he believes that the version of Assassin’s Creed Origins on Xbox One X is the most beautiful version, even in the face of other platforms like the PC, the Playstation 4, and the Playstation 4 Pro.
The Xbox One X has often been said by Microsoft and a number of developers to be an extremely powerful system, able to compete with some of the most powerful PCs. While we haven’t really seen any gameplay on it that would back up these various claims, all of the devs that are singing its praises, such as Monolith and here at Ubisoft, can at least make a person think.
Assassin’s Creed Origins on Xbox One X is probably going to be a beautiful game no matter how you slice it, anyway. The game will be taking place farther back than any Assassin’s Creed game before, back during the Ptolemaic period of Ancient Egypt.
Players will be able to see the pyramids and Ancient Egypt at its height, traveling through vast tracts of desert, and seeing ancient Egyptian cities with all of the glorious architecture they built.
With all of this coming along with the game, it’s no surprise that players will gravitate towards whichever game not only allows the best technical specifications including framerate and visual quality, but the console that can give it the best.
While the Playstation 4 has proven to outsell the Xbox One by a huge margin, and the Playstation 4 Pro has an enormous lead due to it coming out a year before the Xbox One X, there’s no telling what might happen when the Xbox premium console finally becomes available.
To see how Assassin’s Creed Origins on Xbox One X actually looks, you’ll have to have both the console and the game when Origins releases on October 27 for the Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PC.
