PS4 version tested in in one of the most crowded areas of the game.
This is why the PS4's power and specs matter
I've read too many reviews about framerate issues with reviews not being specific about platform. Glad this clarified that issue for the ps4.
Clearly not true and i don't have the game for the x box 1 or PS4 But i doubt Neogaf members are lying when they claim the framerate is bad on the PS4 ( Afterall its the go to site for Sony fans) [email protected] I know the x box 1 version is having frame rate problems. So i hardly make my way to an x box site to find out what PS4 users think of the game would i? Best place would be here or Neogaf. People on N4G who actually own a PS4 said the game has got frame rate issues! Think before you comment.
@KNWS "Clearly not true" And you know this how? " I doubt neogaf members are lying" Ah, now NEOGAF matters to you when it suits your argument. Very nice. OT: I will wait for DF analysis. Edit "People on N4G who actually own a PS4 said the game has got frame rate issues!" Did they apply day one patch or not? Can you tell me Mr. KNWS? Since you are so informed about the issues people are having.
Gamingbolt with their garbage reporting yet again... They matter-of-factly say: "Assassin's Creed Unity PS4 Has No Apparent Stuttering & FPS Issue", as if it applies to the entire game, and then go on to say: "However it must be noted that we tested just one area and there might be a possibility that frame rate drops might happen in another section of the map." Lmao. Best to leave the tech analysis articles to the professionals, eh fellas?
Lucas, while I agree that Gamingbolt is absolute trash, I urge you to refrain from saying that what they do should be referred to as reporting. That would imply at least some degree of journalistic integrity and they clearly have none.
@Lukas Well put. Not top surprising they are as usually being misleading with clickbait titles and talking nonsense tech wise. Well it least we are not having pretty contrast talk anymore :p but you would think after being proven wrong but DF on a few occasions they would leave comparison to be who have years of experience and tech to do these kind of analysis. Edit - @JP1369 I said damn...
to be honest stuttering occurs when you throw a smoke bomb/during jumps and parkour stuff. if you read into the issue in detail the crowds were always oddly free from drops multiple sources have confirmed that either version (even pc) has stuttering. though its likely xb1 version has it the worst considering most review copies are xb1 versions
My friends is playing this on PS4, he said there is are framerates issues. Maybe the review were not patched with the day one patch ?
I am a gaffer and I just left a long ass post in the OT about how horrible my experience has been playing this on the PS4. The framerate IS bad. As soon as you become an assassin and the map populates with all the side missions and whatnot, it turned into a slide show for me. Like, 15-20fps bad. I rebooted and tried again. Same issues. The games runs like ASS and that is not even mentioning that you need the companion app to unlock certain chests and that a 60 dollar game has 100 dollars worth of micro transactions. Ubisoft has gone full retard.
I've seen people say there is issues with this game on all platforms, i saw a video of people randomly flying and having bad stutters lol, I'll wait for DF analysis.
Have to agree. Yet most reviews I've read didn't even mention framerate at all. Hopefully DF can clear things up .
Glad people are seeing for themselves on the issue. Ubisoft's dev teams are becoming very disappointing this year.
for sure. I was especially irked by Watchdogs. It was one of the biggest reasons I wanted next gen consoles. For me personally, it did not deliver. The Crew beta was even more disappointing than I was expecting it to be. ACU seems par for the course at this point (at least technically).
"The Crew beta was even more disappointing than I was expecting it to be" I wasn't expecting a miracle, but dear god some of the missions were over tuned. The level 20 drag race I couldn't beat till 60+. The thing has a full nitro off the line pretty much while you start with nothing. Hell, the cops in the game have cars that are like 40 levels higher than you.
many people are reporting though that its not the large crowds that are the problem. It happens while running on walls etc. Some of the first reports were in fact on PS4. The Xbox and PC versions are also having issues. Edit: From Polygon: "A video captured from the PS4 version of Assasin's Creed Unity by ZeroX03 Gaming, which you can see above, exhibits severe stuttering during an act as simple as clambering along a wall inside a church — not anything nearly as complicated to render as the hundreds of characters in the game's Parisian crowd scenes. According to Reddit user Merkwerk, the game's frame rate on PS4 is "not even close to a locked 30 fps, it feels like it's running at 20 something most of the time." The individual added, "I've had it drop way below that a couple of times already." heres the link with the capture that does in fact show some pretty nasty chop" http://www.polygon.com/2014...
Too many sites have been reporting on the stuttering issue for it not to be a real thing. No doubt Gamingbolts 1 minute video shows no stuttering but that doesn't mean categorically there is not an issue in the game. 1 min of video is not confirmation of anything other than you managed to capture one minute of clean video.
That's pretty bad. Thx for the link.
That doesn't explain the PC problems. And your'e just going to base everything off a 1 min video?
At least there's this.
That's good to hear.
Gamingbolt. The only ones to mention that Ps4 has no problems. Also one of the few websites I really dislike and don't trust.
So wait. Is this before or after Day 1 patch? Did the early buyers report the issues before or after the patch?
We applied the 880MB patch, so this is after the patch but as mentioned in the post, we did not came across any differences between patched and non-patched versions so far.
I do hope these technical issues aren't as bad as some are making it out to be.
Ill bet that it was reported before the patch.
They must have a different ps4 than mine cause i definitely see performance issues. Nothing game breaking but it's definitely there. What's weird is that it appears out of nowhere. Not necessarily where you would expect them. But when it all works fine, damn it looks amazing..
What the hell, man?! I'm confused now. o.O
What if you look straight forward, I find looking down improves FPS as not as much is on the screen.
Post patch. Sweet.
This ultimately doesn't mean much just because this person wasn't having issues doesn't mean they don't exist.
Nope don't agree with this article I am playing it right now and it's very atrocious and choppy hope they fix it soon
Oh are you in for a surprise... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Apparently he should sell that medallion for a smoother framerate.
yes, that section was soo horrible i actually fell a couple of times because of fps drops.
I've read various account on here and elsewhere that the PS4 version does have these same problems, mostly when in non crowded areas. Buyer beware, your experience may differ from this one.
why so many broken games are being released these days? There are reports that even on high end rigs with a GTX 780 the frame-rate is erratic. http://www.neogaf.com/forum...
Holy crap. :I Ubisoft did a terrible job with this game then. Wow
I have the PS4 version and there are frame drops. This report is inaccurate.
This video doesn't show free running across the roof tops. That's where I read that the game has issues. :I
The framedrops could be due to ps4's default harddrive. I replaced my default Seagate Momentus HD with Western Digital Black, and instantly noticed improvements with the games I was playing at the time. The Seagate Momentus was old crap when the ps3 came out a long time ago. I'm guessing Sony used them because they had a ton of them laying around. Try swapping out the HD yourself and you will see. Or it could be a firmware problem...or both.
FPS holds up well? not even 30 fps 1080p? Commoooooon
Why does it matter when this game is the same boring crap!....go over here and spy this, go over there climb a building and listen to a conversation...smh...
Gamingbolt = trash I hope its true, but I'm not holding my breath. Too many reports otherwise.
The stuttering is an XBOX EXCLUSIVE ...LOL
Im having an issue on pc and xbox one where i was doing the chappel mission where i become an assassins and i have to investigate the chappel. I was having major frame rate dips inside the building especially climbing walls
