great to hear

I know right? The frame rate was exactly what I was worried about. Really great news.

I've played it on the PS4. Another add on which I do not know if is on current gen is that there's weather cycles in the online now. So you'll be playing in the sun, rain and stormy weather. The graphics on the PS4 are very rich/deep and detailed. The environment is much more alive now as well. They also have a match making creation system that allows you to build your own game plays to whatever you'd like.

So both 60fps on both consoles good to hear I guess. Dev's have said you will be able to tell difference from 3rd party exclusives so they perform the same but do they look the same time will tell. Tbh the difference won't shine out unless it's on 1st party games

GarrusVakarian1836d ago

Yeah, 3rd party titles will look good but 1st party titles will be where each console shines.

Why would anyone disagree with these two comments?
1080p and 60fps on a multy platform game is exactly what everyone should be happy about, most titles on xbox and ps3 could barley hit 720p, 30 fps at times.
This is excellent news.

I love that. I'll be playing it with remote play. Damn 60fps is so smooth while you slaughter random pirates. Anway, is it 1080p? If it is, My pre-order line up is hella of a goodness. 2 ds4 + camera and 6 games.

thrust1836d ago

Why do you care if it is 1080p and you are remote playing it?

the vita is not 1080p.

DigitalAnalog1836d ago

Answer: Downsampling. Look it up.

thrust1836d ago

Still not 1080p tho,haha

GamerXD1835d ago


I know, but I want 1080p on my tv. I'll just do the remote play when my brother is watching tv shows.

Only the multiplayer portion will be 60fps, SP will be 30fps which they've said before, makes sense since multiplayer won't have an open world or ship battles.

TheOneWhoIsTornApart1836d ago

Your wrong about that. Where did you get such terrible info from?.

starchild1835d ago

Eurogamer already reported that the single player is running at 30fps and the multiplayer at 60fps.

Go ahead and believe that the single player will run at 60fps, but it will only result in you being disappointed when the game comes out and it's confirmed to be 30fps.

This is the multiplayer team being interviewed and they are talking about the multiplayer portion of the game.

It's the same thing as with Killzone Shadow Fall-- the single player is 30fps and multiplayer is 60fps.

papashango1835d ago

Been playing at over 100fps since AC2...

jimsas1835d ago

No , he's actually right about that.
It was at gamescom.

Adexus1835d ago (Edited 1835d ago )

It even says it in the this article, only multiplayer is mentioned, not single player.

And as starchild stated, Eurogamer/Digital Foundry tested it and this is what's in their article:

"On a performance level, yet again it's a shame to see the opportunity for 60fps pass us by on next-gen, but at least we have what's shaping up to be a solid 30fps game on our hands. Gone is the tearing of Assassin's Creed 1 and 2, and similarly the sustained drops to the 20fps mark in the third game on console isn't a factor here."


It only being 30fps sucks but that's no reason to disagree with me whilst doing no research yourself.
