Assassin’s Creed: Origins Was Up And Running On Xbox One X “Literally Within Days”

That development for Microsoft's super-powerful Xbox One X is easier than everyone thought it would be seems to be a common consensus among video game developers. One of those developers is the team at Ubisoft that is currently working on Assassin's Creed: Origins, led by game director Ashraf Ismail. And Ismail says getting the game up and running on the One X only took the team "a few days".

If all games run on X1X, why would it take any time to get it going? Are they saying they completely finished the upgrades in a few days?

Right, I'm wondering the same, was they able to load the Xbox One version, and was able to 'turn Up's graphical options. Or is it PC development code separate from the original Xbox One version.

Thus does this mean, developers are making they're working on Two Xbox versions, or upgrading settings of the original Xbox One version.

Personally, with as big of a gap the two have, if I had the team power to do it. Xbox One, and Xbox One X would be developed completely seperately, such as a PS4 version is developed separate from Xbox One version.

Question to that would be, is it a separate download version from the Xbox One. To my understanding, PS4 Pro games updates, are such, they update the PS4 version to run better.

Last time I checked 1x is still an X1 !
Or did I miss something ?

They are talking about taking the Base X1 game and getting it running at the higher res with increased effects while being stable in a short amount of time.

They got the game running on the console. You build the games on a pc and push the builds over to the dev unit to see how it runs. They still have to finish the game, qa, beta etc. what they mean is the build they had was able to be up and running on the console (dev unit) for the first time within days. Usually the process takes a lot longer as even when the games get running, they run really poorly as consoles aren't as powerful as the computers they build the game and assets on and consoles also have proprietary hardware configs that need to be optimized and sorted so even getting the build to run more than 5 fps initially is considered "good". All the optimizing happens later which is when they start saying things like "targeting 1080p 30 fps" for example because they know what's realistic at a certain point. In this case they are probably just referring to the pipeline/dev tools that Xbox has and how easy it is to move across platforms. I assume because it was initially built on a dx12 API set

Most of the games that are being shown started development before they had 1X dev kits, so Ubi, in this instance, had to patch the 1X enhancements into their code. That patch is what only took a few days, and that doesn't even mean it's optimized since Ubi had also mentioned that the dynamic scaling might not be used on the 1X version.

Even FM7 isn't optimized yet... Turn 10 admitted that they're only using 70% of the GPU right now.

I am hearing this from a lot of devs about the Xbox One X but none are saying this about PS4 Pro.

TheUndertaker8511d ago (Edited 11d ago )

There's a few stories out about how easy it is to get games upgraded for Pro but not as many as Xbox One X and definitely not in such a short period of time

Kiwi6611d ago

Maybe they can't get it up and running as quick for PS4 Pro

mark_parch11d ago

we need to start hearing about graphical features that are in the games like ultra pc settings not just resolutions and frame rates

cellfluid10d ago

It doesn't matter how fast they get these games up and running, because your still end up waiting Hella long for it to be released!!!
