Not too long ago, the video game publisher and developer Ubisoft released two separate 4K trailers for its forthcoming action-adventure title Assassin’s Creed Origins, with the company intending to display the wondrous beauty of its take on Ancient Egypt and the graphical might of the release. Now, the studio has decided to let PC fans know the minimum and recommended specifications required to run the game on their respective rigs should they want to hit such high marks of visual fidelity.

According to a fresh blog post from Ubisoft’s Communications Specialist, Chris Watters, the publisher and developer suggests that Assassin’s Creed Origins‘ minimum specs line up with 2015’s Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, and that those players should expect to run the game at 720p and 30 FPS by way of its auto-detect presets. Furthermore, fans who own machines with meatier hardware will “have the possibility of running 4K at 30 FPS or higher, or running standard resolutions such as 1080p or 1200p at higher than 30 FPS,” as explained by studio producer Jose Araiza.

As detailed in Ubisoft’s blog post, the PC-dedicated team at Ubisoft Kiev did its best to keep the minimum requirements to what they were on Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, which resulted in widening the range of supported machines, along with providing additional frame rate options ranging from 30 FPS to an uncapped frame rate. The developers also focused on dynamic resolution rendering on PC and other platforms so as to keep the frame rate “as close as possible” to targeted frames per second “at all times by adjusting the frame resolution on the fly.”

Taking all of this into account, it seems as if Ubisoft has put a lot of work into ensuring that Assassin’s Creed Origins looks spectacular on both PC and consoles when it comes out, with the publisher and developer having previously explained that the extra year off for the series helped the sequel overall. Without a doubt, the company wants to completely avoid the fiasco of a release that came with Assassin’s Creed Unity, as it ended up being one of the most broken games at launch.

Assassin’s Creed Origins is slated to release on October 27, 2017 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
