Assassin’s Creed got released and it’s not time to optimize the game to its fullest. You don’t want to play the game at low FPS, do you now?

Since it’s not a multiplayer game and it features no competitive element, having the lowest possible settings for higher FPS is not ideal. You want a good mix of visual looks and performance.

Therefore, you should really adjust the graphics settings in the game after your preferences. These are just the settings that we use in Assassin’s Creed: Origins along with some overall PC tips because this game is very CPU intensive.

    Assassin’s Creed: Origins Graphics Settings

    This game is better optimized for NVIDIA GPU’s, so if you own an AMD GPU, even the powerful AMD RX Vega 56 or AMD RX Vega 64, do not expect to get higher FPS than 60 FPS in 1080p at the medium video preset. Even the GTX 1060 runs the game better than the RX Vega 64 at the time of this writing.

    The Anvil Engine, which is the engine that Assassin’s Creed runs on, it not that good at scaling with lower settings, so lowering your settings might not give you the performance boost that you would expect at first sight.

    Also have in mind that Assassin’s Creed: Origins is very CPU intensive, meaning that you need a proper CPU/GPU combination to run the game properly.

    A handy trick is to use the Performance Tools in Assassin’s Creed: Origins by pressing F1 in-game. That way, you can see your FPS, CPU and GPU usage, and a overall score of your performance. Based on that score, you can adjust your settings.

    Graphic Quality: Custom

    Adaptive Quality: 60fps

    If you can hit more than 60fps with your GPU and CPU, then turn this off.

    Anti-Aliasing: Low

    No info on what type of Anti-Aliasing is being used.

    Shadows: High

    Environment Details: Ultra High

    Texture Detail: Medium

    Tessellation: Very High

    Terrain: High

    Clutter: Medium

    Fog: High

    Water: High

    Screen Space Reflections: Medium

    Volumetric Clouds: Off

    You don’t need this.

    Texture Detail (Characters): High

    Ambient Occlusion: Off

    Depth of Field: On

    Having this on will render more of the objects in the background, which will look nice.

    Also, if you have an AMD GPU then be sure to disable HBCC as it causes a lot of performance drops for AMD graphics cards.
