Yes

what CPU do you recommend then or would I be better off with a 1080TI?

Ryzen+ and x470 mobos comes in 19th, so if you really are in a hurry to get a good cpu for the money then i guess you could check those things out.

Gtx 1080 ti will bottleneck the 3570k for sure in some cases depending on resolution and used settings.

Because gpu will be the bottleneck in 4K for the most part.

Depends on game. There seem to be sections in assassin creed origins (based on videos etc..) where a quad core cpu does not cut it and the cpu is maxed out in certain locations, causing stuttering. The GPU utilisation is low in that section.

There are many games that do not require that many cores/threads to run, and thus will not be affected by a four core processor.

It depends whether game developers make use of multiple cpu cores, or just stick to 1 or 2 cores.
Remember, it's only a game, have fun and enjoy.

Assassin creed origins is not really a good sample of effective usage of both cpu and gpu.
