OG Assassin's Creed Xbox One Back compat (One X Enhanced) £3.59 W/Gold @ xbox.com

Found 3rd Apr
Assassin's Creed for Xbox 360 - Back compat on XB One & more importantly it was Xbox One X Enhanced recently. Been a smidge cheaper but I believe that was before it was One X Enhanced.

Looks a serious upgrade for anyone with a One X. Plenty of game for the money.

No free copy of Unity tho I'm afraid

You might want to look into what it takes to enhance these old titles. Nothing close to what it takes to develop a game.

Can get a disc copy for about £1.75 for anyone looking. eBay etc.
Probably, but a few tweaks to get an old game close to today's visual standards would require hardly any work. Not to mention it's great for people who had already bought it on 360 back in the day. Back compat can never be a bad thing.

The scorpio can do anything.
Is it just a crappy 4K resolution update or a bump in frame rate also?

Exactly! Also, it seems that the effort that goes into back compat and even the few x enhanced back compat titles, is pretty minimal because in general they don't actually change the code of the game. So, it's not exactly as if it would suck resources from new projects, but rather adds some value to older games. Assassin's Creed and Forza Horizon look actually quite good in 4K (even if the game mechanics in Assassin's Creed seem more rudimentary in comparison to the later entries in the series).

The titles that are x enhanced now, only have a more stable frame rate and often better visuals beyond the higher resolution, but afaik there are no titles with a higher frame rate.
No amount of "X enhancement" will make that horse running animation look decent.
Patiently waiting for assassin's Creed black flag to get the Xbox one X enhanced treatment.

Microsoft deal with the backwards compatibility enhancements. The developers have nothing to do with it. I assume this is what they're referring to.

Yeah but even so - it’s not like Bob from the BC team will stop enhancing the BC titles they knock out at an impressive rate and suddenly create a console exclusive masterpiece - it’s not in the same ball park....

and some might might argue that Geoff that made Knack 2 in the shed for Sony Towers would have been better spent knocking out 400+ BC titles for ps4....

if only life were that simple

Yeah - that’s the “one” that got away (along with the others ha)

I was All checkout ready on that deal and left it in trolley and missed it.
I love all those who are complaining that a free update to a game that makes it look and run better is somehow a negative, maybe if they instead did a quick port, stuck the remaster moniker on it and charged 30 quid it would then be a positive, right. Lol

Anyway i have this and the enhancement is top notch, makes the game really pop in all aspects, so there is no better way to play this game of you missed it first time round, you got a X then you would be mad not to grab a copy of this.

Heat, free 4k enhanced not 30 quid remaster heat.

Geoff better have backwards compatibility sorted come the PS5
Good game for its day. Don't know if I would replay it just for X enhancements though. DF done a good write up and video of the X enhancements for this and other backward compatible titles. Very impressive what Microsoft have been able to achieve with backwards compatibility, shame on Sony for still trying to push their lame Onlive service.

Ha!


No he is working on the “awesome” exclusives that Sony fans wang on about all the time - driveclub 2, killzone origins, knack 3

he asked about back compatibility or even working in outreach and trying to get Ea acesss on the PS4.... but Sony said they knew best “for the gamers”

Yes X enhanced titles run at a nine times higher resolution and also better hit the target frame rate. For example a 30 fps game would often dip below 30 fps but on the X these dips are reduced or eliminated, and a 60 fps title will run much closer to an actual 60 fps. There are also other tweaks like improved level of detail adjustments (objects in the distance get replaced with higher detail version further into the distance).

Even if you only have a 1080p TV the upgrades are noticeable as the original games were only 720p or lower.

It's not enhanced it is just backward compatible to play on the Xbox one 👌
