Despite being something of a let down when it first released, Assassin's Creed Unity has enjoyed some great support from Xbox. Not only does it have Auto HDR, but it's also one of the most recent titles to receive an FPS Boost on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. As a result, Xbox boss Phil Spencer has returned to the game all these years later to take advantage of its improvements.
Sharing an image on Twitter, Spencer can be seen having some co-op fun in the world of Assassin's Creed Unity. The image has even prompted many of the series' fans to come forward in the comments, thanking the Xbox team for their support on what they consider to be an "underrated" title in the series.
The increased frame rate bumps the game up to 60FPS, which is pretty impressive. One of the main reasons for the praise is how far it's come since its initial release. Back in 2014 when it originally launched, the game was a bit of a technical mess with poor frame rates, glitches, and crashes. It was clearly way ahead of what the consoles were capable of at the time, so now it can really shine on Xbox Series X|S with an increased frame rate.
We all know Spencer loves his games. He even jokingly admitted recently that he's partial to a bit of Octopath Traveller on his phone during meetings. Still, at least he's taking a break from Destiny 2, which he is known for being addicted to.
Have you revisited Assassin's Creed Unity since its FPS Boost? Let us know in the comments below.
Cant wait to play all the Assassin's Creed games at 60FPS, Hopefully they can get Syndicate, Origins, and Odyssey at 60.
Phil flirting with ubi to get us some sweet AC games on Game Pass.
In my opinion, Unity is the best of the "original" AC games. The way they portray Paris, the crowds, the revolution etc, it was ahead of its time. Bugs, low fps and typical ubisoft crap didn't allow a potentially amazing game to show its true form. Auto HDR and FPS Boost helps bring this game almost to 2021. And I have a blast playing it
@Bmartin001 I'm guessing it's just a matter of time. It'll be great whenever it happens.
It's also great now that we don't have to find a physical copy of Unity anymore to get the 60 FPS. Not that it's expensive, but I would imagine some people might be confused by the multiple editions of the game (I believe the regular initial release is the only one that worked for the frame rate until now)
Activision offers games for PS Now, but not for Xbox Game Pass. They probably just don't offer it because they have a partnership with Sony.
I picked up unity for $2, digitally. And I'm enjoying it on the series s.
