With Assassin’s Creed Odyssey just over a week away from launch, AMD has rolled out Radeon Adrenalin Edition 18.9.3 that brings up to 5% performance boost for the game on PC.
According to AMD, Radeon Adrenalin Edition 18.9.3 brings 3% performance boost for Assassin’s Creed Odyssey while using the Radeon RX 580 and 5% performance boost for the game while playing it on the Radeon RX Vega 64. Not only that, the game also brings support for Forza Horizon 4.
Furthermore, the Radeon Adrenalin Edition 18.9.3 also brings fixes for a couple of issues which also includes the issue of a random system reboot while updating Radeon Software on a system with 16 Cores chip. Check out the full release notes and download it here.
Speaking of AMD, a report has been making rounds on the internet suggesting that AMD Polaris 30 will be based on 12 nm process and these GPUs will be out as soon as next month.
Furthermore, the report suggests that AMD Polaris 30 will see 15% performance boost over AMD RX 500 series. While it isn’t confirmed but reportedly Radeon RX 680 will be the first GPU based on the AMD Polaris 30.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey will launch next month and like the previous entries in the franchise, the game will be full of side content. However, Ubisoft has assured that Assassin’s Creed Odyssey side content will add to the overall experience and some will even connect to the main single-player campaign.
In Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, for example, we had the chariot races. There was a trend in open-world games at that point to just have ‘stuff’, always have an icon for something to do near you. We’re moving away from that trend in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey. We try to make everything that we put in there have the story advance and grow, that different wheels in the game turn. Nothing spins alone, in a way. Everything that you do should feel valuable, make you grow.
Assassin’s Origins was also full of side content with a unique premise. However, as much unique as it was, the side content in the game was too much and to this day I haven’t discovered all of the regions let alone complete the side-quests. I hope that this is not the case with Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is an open-world action adventure game developed by Ubisoft and is scheduled to launch on October 5, 2018, for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
