Assassin's Creed Origins next-gen photorealistic overhaul is so beautiful I wanna weep

Assassin's Creed Origins next-gen photorealistic overhaul is so beautiful I wanna weep

Assassin's Creed Origins fans should check out this stunning next-gen photorealistic overhaul.

Despite being one of the later arrivals to the Assassin’s Creed series, Assassin’s Creed Origins is still considered to be a highlight and a next-gen overhaul has made fans rediscover their love for Bayek’s tale.

Released in 2017, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is the 10th major instalment in the long-running Assassin’s Creed series by Ubisoft. Taking the series to Ancient Egypt during the end of the Ptolemaic period, it follows the story of Bayek and his wife Aya who hunt for revenge after the murder of their son by the Templar Order.

Check out the Assassin's Creed Origins trailer below!

As one of the oldest games chronologically in the series, Assassin’s Creed Origins shows us the events that happen that result in the creation of the Hidden Ones, the precursor to the Assassin Brotherhood we know and love. Additionally, the game features cameos from some well-known historical figures such as Cleopatra and Julius Caesar.

With the game just passing its five-year anniversary, one YouTuber known as Digital Dreams shared a photorealistic next-gen overhaul for Assassin’s Creed Origins back in 2021. The concept trailer made via the RTX 3090 with added ray-tracing shows the Ubisoft title like never before as we see Bayek explore the wonders of Ancient Egypt.

The trailer takes us to the endless sands of the Sahara as the assassin crosses his way across, each grain of sand passing beneath his feet. We also see flowing lakes bustling with boats and villagers, the ancient streets, paved with dust and footprints and temples rising up on the horizon. Although Assassin’s Creed Origins was already a beautiful game, it has been enhanced thanks to Digital Dreams’ work.

In related news, fans have recently agreed that 2013’s Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag has aged beautifully which goes to show the long-running series is timeless. Here is hoping the same can be said for any upcoming instalments set to release across the next few years.
