When Assassin’s Creed Odyssey launched some were unable to play the game on their PC. Soon it was revealed that CPUs that don’t have AVX support are not able to play the game. This is about to change as Ubisoft will allow CPUs without AVX support to play the game.
Ubisoft has noted that it is aware of the issue that is preventing the CPUs without AVX support to run the game. Ubisoft has assured that it is working on a solution to let Assassin’s Creed Odyssey run on CPUs without AVX support.
Thanks to your support, we were able to identify the common cause of a few instances of reported crashes: the impacted CPUs didn’t support AVX – more details below.
We heard your feedback and are now actively working on a solution to extend the supported CPUs for our players to be able to run Assassin’s Creed Odyssey without AVX support, within the minimum requirements.
As this is an ongoing process, we are not able to provide an ETA just yet, but rest assured this is a high priority for us and we will keep you updated on the progress.
Speaking of the game, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey will also come to Nintendo Switch aside from being released for PC and consoles. However, the game will be a cloud version for Switch and will not render on the hybrid console itself.
Not only that, PC users will soon be able to stream the game with Google Project Stream. Since October 5 Google Project Stream is streaming Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and is playable through Chrome browser.
But, the privilege to stream the game is extended to “a limited number of participants”. Those who take part will have access to the game till January 2019. Google will be sending out invitations for the next two months.
Google Project Stream is a technical test that is designed to “push the limits ” of streaming “with one of the most demanding applications for streaming—a blockbuster video game”.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey in an open-world action RPG developed by Ubisoft. The game is now available for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
