Assassin’s Creed Origins Quietly Backs Off From HDR Support For PC Version
Assassin’s Creed Origins launched for PC and console last month and despite Ubisoft’s claims about putting love into the PC version of the game, it is a mess in terms of performance and now Ubisoft has backed-off from including the HDR support for the PC version Assassin’s Creed Origins.
As noted by Gamingbolt, Ubisoft initially announced that Assassin’s Creed Origins will be getting HDR support on PC, PS4 Pro, and Xbox One X. Now Ubisoft has edited their post and the PC version has been excluded from the list of versions that will be getting HDR support.
As I mentioned earlier, the PC version of Assassin’s Creed Origins is a mess with dismal performance even when the game is utilizing almost 100% of the CPU at all times. Given all the issues with the PC version of the game, Ubisoft might be looking to avoid further blunders.
One reason for the game’s dismal performance on PC is reportedly the use of Denuvo DRM and VRM Protect at the same time. Both of these are DRMs that protect the game from being pirated and reportedly these alone utilize 30-40% of the CPU performance.
However, Ubisoft has denied that DRM is the cause of high CPU usage and explained that scope of the game as it features a “living, systemic and majestic open world of Ancient Egypt” with beautiful landscapes with complex geometry with no loading screen, it requires a lot of processing power. Ubisoft further added that the game has been optimized to run at a steady 30 FPS.
Assassin’s Cred Origins is third-person action adventure game set in ancient Egypt developed by Ubisoft for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. The vents in the game showcase the birth of Assassin’s Brotherhood whose mission is to maintain peace and freedom.
