Assassin’s Creed Origins’ new patch is live, bringing a better UI and even prettier photos

Assassin's Creed Origins

Assassin’s Creed Origins came out at the end of last week to strong critical and consumer reviews, but some have noted a number of bugs. Ubisoft are already hard at work ironing these out – the game got its 1.03 patch today, and it includes several quest and gameplay fixes.

Considering a trip to Egypt? It’s nice this time of year – let Kirk be your travel agent in our Assassin’s Creed Origins review.

Highlights include no more waterborne sandstorms, improved transitions and level-of-detail during cutscenes, and fixes for various combat inconsistencies when using heavy attacks, sickle swords, and so on. You can parry as Aya now, and playable characters in general should get stuck in odd stances less often. There are also a number of additions to the UI, including a new completed activity panel in some locations and many improvements to photo mode.

The patch is 1.3GB on UPlay, and 1.1GB on Steam, and should be ready to download now. You can read the notes in full on Ubi’s website.
