Why didnt they do this in the first game if possible?

I do believe this couldve worked with this gen, i mean loading screens were still being played, and then in animus to world fusion, sounds fishy imo

The Power of 8GB GDDR5 RAM !

RAM probably has little to no effect on loading screens.

WarThunder1628d ago


Ram do effect loading screen. The more memory ram you have, faster the game loads.

TheModernKamikaze1628d ago

okay, thanks for sorting that out.

Uhhh no. RAM is more with processing. Sure you do need a certain amount of RAM for some games, but if the game required 4GB and you gave 32GB, your game wont load 8x faster. It has a lot to do with your HDD speed. If you load Skyrim for example on an internal SSD drive, the load screens will almost be non-existant compared to a regular HDD.

Bladesfist1628d ago

When you are loading in a game things are being transferred from the HDD (faster) or Optical Drive (Slower) into RAM. The main limitation as said before is the speed of the HDD or SSD or Optical Drive so GDDR5 will make no difference.

Does this mean that it will just be loading the game during cut-scenes?

NateCole1628d ago

Good. All next gen games should strive for this. If they need help then ask ND. They have been doing it since PS1

In an interview with one of the devs, they said there will be two loading screens - one for each of the game's two main cities.
