I wonder how the PS4 version would like: like the Wii U and PC version with just better resolution, or completely revamped! This comparison makes me kina hopeful: http://m.neogaf.com/showpos...
I'm pretty sure it's not gonna look like that - not even close. Since PS4/NextGen seems more like an afterthough I don't think it will be heavily optimized for new tech. The screens look great, just not that inFamous-great. I will be very happy if it looked a little better than AC3 with silky-smooth-framerate, better antialiasing, vastly improved shadows and better draw distance. Everything above that would be a great bonus: better foilage, better water, better hair, better cloth-simulation. You name it. For AC V, however, I have hopes that it will look much better. The problem with faces like that, in my opinion, is that the animations just look so much weirder when the face itself looks so real. I think it is really unrealistic to expect them to fully motion capture every facial action for a game of the scale like AC. Here's hoping they develop some crazy tech that syntetically delivers animations reasonably close to real life. (I'm actually sure they will but I hope rather soon... like 2-3 years.)
The weird thing about this game is that you play as Haythams father, AC3 tells you about how and when he dies to "On 3 December 1735, the Kenway household was infiltrated by masked men, who kidnapped his daughter, Jenny Kenway, and killed several of the servants. During this time, they cornered Edward in the games room, and in a prolonged fight, they killed him" Also... why do these screens look like AC liberation? Compared to the announce screens of AC3... these don't look as good as those, even though they were bullshots
so your saying AC4 is in the not too distant future after the third game?
@Darkblood AC4 takes place 65 years before AC3... but Im guessing the future stuff is still moving forward Also on note with the screens looking like liberation I mean compare these http://i.neoseeker.com/n/6/... http://i.imgur.com/4NEr1pe.... They look so similar Also look at the announce screens of AC3 http://blogs-images.forbes.... http://cache.g4tv.com/Image... Yeah I know these are bullshots, ubi tends to do that whenever they announce a game... but these AC4 pics look like a vita game imo instead of a this gen console game
copy and pasted straight from neogaf
These images are probably the ps4/PC versions. Do not expect them to look much different from the current gen console version. This is ultimately a current gen game.
"I wonder how the PS4 version would like: like the Wii U and PC version with just better resolution" Like PC version with better resolution? What do you smoke?
Try WiiU/ps4/pc will look exactly the same kid. ps4 is just a little more powerful its not got dx12 card inside mate,wiiu MCM is jam packed with eDRAM un heard of in a dx11 card,ps4 has just more power in terms of higher clock rates ?
are you telling me the PS4 is equal to the WiiU... ok.
the Wii U has alot more power than people give it credit for. The GPU is heavilly customised and as you said has a decent amount of edram. No where near as much ram as the PS4, but enough to grunt to hand visually once developers start getting the hang of it. If anybody can do it though I expect it to be Ubisoft. This time around AC4 will be built with the Wii U in mind and not as a last minute adjustment like AC3 was, which still looked and played great
But I'd suspect the released images to be the PS4/PC versions as they run at the highest resolution. First thing I thought with some of those screens was about New Orleans from AC3: L - that's great! I loved the sun-soaked streets of NO. This will remind me of the POTC films.
Im pretty sure the ps4 wont be graphically better than pc......it may be very close though to pc IF YOUR LUCKY.
I didn't know you play as Haytham's father?? Cool tidbit i guess.
I thought it was Grand Father
Connor's grandfather. Haytham's father.
Those screenshots look like PS3/360 graphics. No where near next gen. I think this is a current-gen release or a multi-gen release. Looks like it was built on current gen specs though.
Unrelated but... Amazon has PS4 version of Watch Dogs fro 99.99 while all the other versions are 59.99?? They do mention that "Watch Dogs Placeholder Pricing" is in effect. But perhaps this is indeed indicative of increased prices of some sort for the at least the initial part of the upcoming console generation, or for more complex games in general.
I'm not sure why Amazon needs a placeholder price. Jack Tretton has already said on CNBC that "We're going to welcome free-to-play models, games from $.99 up to those $60 games". I really don't see game prices rising next gen. Gamers are already pissed off about short games and DLC, raising prices would just push more people towards buying used games, or wait until games hit the bargain bin.
You're an idiot if you think the price will be anywhere near that
Doesnt mean nothing wiiu games were at 99 dollars before it released,wiiu games like Watchdogs are £49.99 in uk,where as some games are £44.99 or a lot less like Walking dead ect are £34.99 ? so high profile WiiU games are £49.99 in the UK,thats more that 100 dollars.
Development cost should be the same or lower since it is easier to develop for the PS4, but EA might rise the price for their game.
Agree and disagree... Easier in the sense that programming is easier and there's overall more power. But game assets take a lot of time and adding more and more functionality, detail and size to games will simply take more time and money. No way around that.
I feel your pain. Nap - I mean! I feel your nap.
@Nimblest-Assassin "Also... why do these screens look like AC liberation? Compared to the announce screens of AC3... these don't look as good as those, even though they were bullshots" Oddly enough, these screens are 960x541. If that were 544, these would be in the Vita's exact native resolution. The game hasn't been announced for the Vita though...
Seeming as i skipped all AC games after Brotherhood for personal fatigue of the franchise, i'm actually looking forward to this iteration. I love the Pirates of the Caribbean movies so i'm kinda excited in hopes this game will deliver. If it fails we all know why, *milk* cough cough
The problem being, AC is still good despite being milked. They bring something new and fresh with each iteration (same cant be said for others like COD). New characters, new settings, new stories, Ubisoft has all of history at theiur disposal. Its less about the franchise being milked, and more about stories, time periods and settings being explored, and going to places we wanted to go, meeting people we want to meet, and living in periods of time we want to experience. That being said, my wallet it dying, but...cant go wrong with Pirates and Assassins :D
Well, it looks to me like this game got the HitMan: Blood Money treatment for a next-gen release. Pretty disappointing, as the premise seems exciting. Admittedly, I'm starting to get franchise fatigue with the AC series. I hope a true AC5 is truly built from the ground-up for next-gen hardware.
nice screens and cool trailer.. I want info on the gameplay life and replay value
They're done with Connor? They can't just go through protagonists like this. Why invest in his story?
TBH, Connor wasnt all that interesting anyways. Haytham was definitely the most strongest character in AC3
He wasn't but I just feel cheated. I feel like they are mass producing assassins now. If Connor is that quickly eliminated, that means that AC3 was just there for the Desmond story line and that is pretty lame.
