Assassin's Creed Origins first released five years ago today on PS5 (that's the 27th October, at the time of writing). Ubisoft's open world adventure is credited with changing the franchise's fortunes for the better, following on from a string of underwhelming instalments. Origins essentially reinvented the series, paving the way for Assassin's Creed Odyssey and Assassin's Creed Valhalla — the latter being the most commercially successful game in the property's history.
Just a few months ago, Origins received an update which allows it to run at 60 frames-per-second on PS5 via backwards compatibility. It's well worth even a quick return, as we think Bayek's Egyptian escapades still hold up especially well.
