Assassin’s Creed IV: Differences Between PS4/Xbox One/PC and Old Generation Further Detailed

During a conference held by Nvidia in Montreal further details surfaced on the differences in Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag between the next generation versions (including PC) and the versions on previous generation consoles.

Apparently the differences are quite a lot better than initially believed, and PC will have exclusive features.

Update:

Edit: Added never seen before comparison screenshots between old and next gen, and some of the PC Only features.

Looking forward to this game, really looks as thou Ubi have picked up thier game from AC3, which i felt was lacking at times.

I am sure all 3 versions will be good in there own ways.

Cloudyday711401d ago

AC IV is one of my most anticipated games for the Xbox One but it pisses me off that Ubisoft are prioritizing the PS4 version. I probably won't get one until holiday next year so will be getting it on the Xbone. I prefer the fact that it has a superior controller. But I want to see the best water effects and I feel that Xbone users are getting a sub-brilliant version. Why didn't Microsoft use GDDR5 RAM?

redey31401d ago

As i read and seen on most sites, PS4 controller isn't 'sub-par' actually it is considered even better than the xbox one.

Cloudyday711401d ago

Hey, I should have expressed myself better. I'm not hatin on the Dualshock 4 it's just that I prefer the stick placement on the Xbox controllers.

I've read a lot of good things about the Dualshock 4 about how its much more comfortable than the DS3 but until I actually get to try it myself I can't actually comment.

SnotyTheRocket1401d ago

"I prefer the fact that it has a superior controller" Two things wrong with this statement. One, I bet you haven't even touched a PS4 controller. Two, It's your OPINION, not a fact.

DragonKnight1401d ago

"but it pisses me off that Ubisoft are prioritizing the PS4 version."

And if they were prioritizing the Xbox One version?

Bobby Kotex1401d ago

It's not Ubisoft's fault you're a xbox fanboy.

N311V1401d ago

I'll be surprised if both next-gen versions aren't very very similar. I stuck with Playstation this gen dispite the rough start and I wasn't disappointed in the end. Xbox might do the same for you next gen.

pete0071401d ago

overall performance will be the same. the games will show it. ubisoft uses advanced water effects on ps4, nice, they will use other things better on xbox as advanced audio, and other games will use special features only on xbox. you wont on any way see a big diffrence between both consoles. if power means a lot to you buy a pc!!

starchild1401d ago

Don't worry too much about it. If you have chosen the XB1 to get first then just get the game and enjoy it. I really don't think the differences between the PS4 and XB1 versions are going to be that great.

The PC version is going to be a good step ahead either of those versions. So even if you got the PS4 version you would still just be getting second best. I'm getting the PC version, but if XB1 is your platform of choice then just enjoy the game. I'm sure it will still be great.

mikeslemonade1401d ago

Don't buy this game because Activision is trying to steal your money by making a gimped up-res current generation game.

frostypants1401d ago (Edited 1401d ago )

@pete007

"Advanced audio"? Really? You actually buy that?

In any event, the gameplay I've seen of this game hasn't impressed me all that much, regardless of platform.

kevnb1401d ago

It's not the ram, it's a better gpu.

Campy da Camper1401d ago

I've shared that anger many times with MS forcing "parity" on multiplats this gen. It sucks, no?

CommonSense1401d ago

don't you people get tired of endlessly going on about how great your console of choice is? every article's comment section is exactly the same on this site. it's pathetic.

if power was really a concern of yours, you'd buy/build a PC.

Amiroo1401d ago

@pete007
"overall performance will be the same"
no, on pc it's 60fps on next-gen platforms it's 30fps.

@mikeslemonade
it's ubisoft not activision. god

Sideras1401d ago

I don't think stick placement per say has any relevance only that they were too close together on the dual shock 3 and had less "resistance". Meaning I just think you and alot of other people have talked yourselves into that 'fact', but we'll see.

BRAD-RIDGE1400d ago

I don't question your chose of console, to each his own and i wont try to sway you to get a ps4(my preference) games are what matters at the end of the day. look it's just marketing, same thing happens for xbox with call of duty. is the game any worst on playstion3 compare to xbox360 its debatable but still sells millions on both. so their will be enough there to warrant a purchase. the worlds' not going to end because xbone doesn't have a track pad nor a second screen.minor changes here and there.the main stuff will be the same on all platforms. pc games have the best versions but console versions sell much more here have a look http://www.vgchartz.com/gam...

SonyKong641400d ago

what year were you hired by Microsoft?

I'm just curious =/

Brix901400d ago

@Cloudyday

Sony paid for exclusive content would make sense that there prioritizing PS4 over the X1. I mean COD has been doing this for years with Xbox.

ThanatosDMC1400d ago (Edited 1400d ago )

PS4 > Xbone

Just a fact.

Too bad we wont see it in this game since MS parity law.

More proof I made the right choice choosing PC over PS4/Xbone :).

BRAD-RIDGE1400d ago

I have a feeling you'll be getting one eventually.

Neonridr1401d ago

I love how the Wii U is suddenly lumped in with the "Old Generation", lol

MasterCornholio1401d ago

That's due to the strength of its hardware.

Neonridr1401d ago

yes but it should have at least some of the features that the XB1 and PS4 versions will have. It will be better than the 360 and PS3 versions.

MasterCornholio1401d ago (Edited 1401d ago )

@Neon

Maybe that's all the Wii U is capable of is playing this game at higher resolution.

Anyways they did say that it would be in between gens so it won't be as bad as you think. But it will be worse than the next gen versions (according to the article) and those versions will be behind the PC version which is fine with me.

SnotyTheRocket1401d ago

Technically, it is next gen. Gens aren't defined by their power. It's when they are released.

lilbroRx1401d ago

I bet you would love it. Though its already been stated that its in between.

triforce791401d ago (Edited 1401d ago )

Microsoft and Sony must pay 3rd partys to make wiiu look inferior if you ask me because wiiu is just as capable and has more full HD games at 60fps end of noticed how shadow of eternals wiiu version if released will be equal to the ultra pc version the devs said as much yet ubi,EA,ect ect are just thinking by making Sony's and Microsoft's games look better will hopefully repeat last gen with the HD twins making them most the money but it will just end half the big publishers if you ask me because if they fail then so will these big guns like square enix,EA,Ubi,ect....wiiu exclusives like Bayonetta2 and X look incredible and much better then any multiplat game ive seen....

how to break this up to you in an uninsulting way? the Wii U is inferior hardware-wise. you're now basically saying that if a game cannot look as good on your inferior hardware like it does on a more superior hardware, it's the dev's fault! seriously dude, lay off the shrooms! it messes up your LOGIC!
