'Assassin's Creed Origins' Free To Play This Weekend, PS5 And Xbox Series X|S Get 60 FPS Boost

The latest installment in the open-world, action-adventure series, Assassin's Creed Origins is set in ancient Egypt.

For the last four years, the team at Ubisoft Montreal behind Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag has been crafting a new beginning for the Assassin’s Creed franchise.

In Assassin’s Creed Origins, the action takes place in Ancient Egypt, the most mysterious place in history, during a crucial period that will shape civilization. Playing as Bayek, a protector of Egypt whose personal story will lead to the creation of the Assassin’s Brotherhood, players will plunge into a living, systemic open world, and discover the secrets behind the Great Pyramids, forgotten myths, the last pharaohs, and – engraved in long-lost hieroglyphics – the origin story of the Assassin’s Brotherhood.

Assassin’s Creed Origins is a brand-new vision for the franchise embracing Action-RPG elements where players level up, loot and choose their abilities to customize their very own skilled Assassin. They will experience a completely new combat system, allowing them to attack and defend multiple enemies at once and equip ultra-rare weapons against unique and powerful bosses.

A revamped narrative experience allows total freedom for players to choose and complete quests at their own pace, each telling an intense and emotional story full of colorful characters and meaningful objectives.

With an entire country to explore, from deserts to lush oases, from the Mediterranean Sea to the tombs of Giza, players will fight against dangerous factions and wild beasts as they explore this gigantic and unpredictable land.

Ubisoft announced that the Assassin’s Creed Origins free weekend is now available until June 20 to celebrate the game’s 60 fps boost.

Support for 60 fps in Assassin’s Creed Origins has been awaited with excitement by fans around the world and is ready to be discovered. This upgrade is the first in a series of surprises and rewards designed to thank fans and celebrate 15 years of passion, creativity and loyalty, featured on the dedicated website. The game’s 60 fps boost is available on Xbox Series X|S and PS5.

Players will have access to all main game content throughout the free weekend and can take advantage of up to 85% off Assassin’s Creed Origins to continue their adventure.

Any progression made during the free weekend will carry over when the player upgrades to the full game on the same platform. An online connection might be required to start the game as a free player. On PlayStation, the game is available to all users regardless of their PlayStation Plus subscription except for German players. On Xbox, players need an Xbox Live Gold subscription. DLC and in-game content can be purchased and used. Ownership will carry over when the player upgrades to the full game.

The free weekend starts on June 16, 1800 UTC, and ends on June 20, 1800 UTC.
