Straight from the press conference, Ubisoft have released 6 new breathtaking screenshots of Watch Dogs running on next gen hardware.
Are these in-game shots? Or just during a cinematic cutscene? Makes a difference..
Ubisoft have a bad habit of releasing doctored screens which are often not indicative of the final game
Even the most recent trailer disagrees with these screenshots.
Even if it is in-game, it is true CROSS gen, not next. Also even their first gameplay debut was heavily modified.
As much as I want them to be true... I'm calling BULLSHOT.
Talk about a visual downgrade since 2012!
This game will look good but dont except that visuals. We need to wait for the real next gen titles (PS4/X1/PC only), cross gen wont show the real next gen graphics. Its not only about graphics, its about AI and physics too.... we dont see big differences because games are made with 7th and 8th gen consoles in mind. So, they are not using the CPU fully.
Great point. Only true next gen games built with latest console CPU/GPU/8GB Ram will show what can be achieved. This is why Sony have told all their studios that any new PS4 games will only be for PS4/Vita and not PS3! Let's hope for more from the Division...
well I think its pretty obvious its not in-game.. and its not meant to look like in-game
These are from the PC version.
Absolutely unequivocally self-evident that these are not screenshots of real-time, in-game play, but of prerendered images. We've been dealt this shenanigan before, remember Aliens: Colonial Marines?
Its from a freaking cinematic Movie. Big diffrent
Bullshots!! What a disaster this game has turned out to be. went from being a breath-taking game to a pile of garbage in the space of an hour. so disappointed!
Give me a freaking break. Even if there has been a visual downgrade, which isn't proven yet, it wouldn't suddenly make the game shit. Some of you are ridiculous.
Ok, ignore the fact that it has been confirmed as PS4 gameplay & the fact that if it wasn't they would of released press statements to clear up this disaster. Also, every screen shot up to this point that has been released from Ubisoft today has been from in-game cutscenes. Also, ignore the fact that the game is now completely lifeless with environments striped right back along with dynamic weather & lighting & NPS not just reduced but dramatically almost none exist. - This even though they've already shown us a real-time 14 minute live PS4 demo months ago with all these feature in place & looking great. Stupid me the gameplay must be great because of these new reductions. Well done sir, you've enlightened me! You must really enjoy companies lying to you with false advertising to sell you their products, please teach me!
These are so fake. They're all bullshots. No aliasing whatsoever. Either cutscenes or completely doctored.
The last one looks so f******** comped together its not even funny
Until I see Watch_Dogs running on a PS4 and looking a LOT better than that trailer did this morning, I'm not adding money to that pre-order. Graphics aren't everything. I realize that. I just think they should at least be able to match Assassin's Creed IV on PS4.
@Legion there was new gameplay from GameSpot and he said he was playing the PS4 version. And visually it took a major downgrade. That's sad.
That is sad. :/ I may cancel.
These are artworks, not ingame screenshots lol omg.
Anyone remember the Red Steel bullshots? Oh Ubisoft, fool me once...
Glad everyone here is not falling for their bullshit
Does it even matter now that this game has a release date? Any goodwill this game had over the last 2 years has been utterly destroyed over the last couple of hours. What went wrong? I wonder how many pre-orders will be cancelled?
I hope every single one gets cancelled. I haven't done a preorder on a game in years, when I distinctly recall how massively raped I felt when the game I preordered ended up being a total BS ripoff. I can't recall the game (this was years ago) but the experience forever left a bad taste in my mouth. Never since and never again! Cancel your preorders. If the game is worth buying after-all, you can get it anyways.
What a bunch of liars. I want the watchdogs they showed me at 2012.
Get a PC, unless they didn't dumb down that version too.
Since when is PC "Next Gen"?
yea i dont know how they got the views but if its real most likely pc version. funny thing it look like a bunch of other pc games visually.
Most likely they're bullshots made in 3dMax.
Whats sad (on Ubisofts part) is naughty dog will come out and show actual gameplay that will blow these bullshots away
IF they are in-game pics then they are all per-rendered, Ubi does this kind of thing to sell the product >_>
This is the first time graphics actually renewed my interest in a video game. Ubisoft, how is Watch Dogs? SO GOOD!
Lol. "Next Gen" is turning out to be quite the scam.
Give me a exact definition of next-gen please. You can't? Well then gtfo with that shitty click-baits.
Those are nothing but bullshots the game has already been XPOSED
Ok so even if the game has terrible graphics compared to the E3 2012 footage, it still should be a truly exceptional game in terms of gameplay. Right?
I'm not ready to write this game off based on some crapy compressed vids of an unknown version of the game. These pics look too good to be true (maybe in game shots with some post processing for promotion) but we can hope they are aiming for this sort of IQ with the final PC ( and maybe PS4) builds. I predict a day one patch for the PS4 version that improves IQ (similar to the AC4 day one patch). If the Xbox1 can handle this game at 920p then surely the PS version should have some better AA or AO settings enabled. I have my fingers crossed that they may have opted for a MSAA solution apposed to the inadequate FXAA we have been seeing of late. Let's just wait to see some high bit rate full HD vids of either a PC or PS4 version before we go all doom and gloom on this game.
Any news apart from batman and watchdogs seems weird when we have big games this month.
Instead of releasing heavily touched up bullshots maybe they should be defending the graphics from the latest gameplay vid!!
My thoughts exactly, unless they have something to hide.
