Publisher says poor graphics performance comes down to hiccup with some AMD CPU and GPU configurations.
"slow clap", Ubisoft everyone, the EA of Europe
Yes ubishaft is getting a bad reputation and it all started with watchdogs. They have so many people working on their games and they just cannot get it right must have a bad management team.
actually it started with far cry 3 e3 video to retail reallity blunder
Have Ubisoft addressed the PS4 900p 20fps issues?
And AC3 glitchfest, most of those bugs weren't squashed and remain to this day.
I think people are overreacting, as usual. The game runs fine for me on my PC and it's probably the best looking game I've yet played. For a while I thought that the console versions must be truly horrible for these people to hate on the game so much, but now I've talked to several friends--two of which own PS4s and one who owns an Xbox One--and none of them said the game ran horribly. They said it had some slowdown in places, but that it didn't really bother them, and they all said the game looked beautiful on their consoles. I know, my experience is my own, but I also see quite a few reviewers who gave the game 8s or 9s and those people also seemed to enjoy the game just fine. All I know for certain is that the game is NOT a broken mess on my PC, not even close. I have a solid framerate and the game is stunning to look at. It has been a great experience so far.
@Logical He said he was getting a "solid frame rate". He did neglect to mention what the frame rate was. He does however seem to be very happy with his solid 15fps, unless hes running some sort of supercomputer. I'm primarily a pc gamer, and have a computer with similar specs. I wont even bother getting it when the minimum requirements are so high, and the recommended are that outrageous. Ubi seems to think that they've created some sort of technical masterpiece, and i should run out and spend another $1000 on my pc to play it at recommended settings. Well thats just not happening.
Overreacting?.. Ha! I think not! Not trying to boast (well kinda) but these are my specs: i7 3930k quadfire r9 295x2 32 gb ram And let me say, it is running like POOP at 4k, in fact even if I bump the settings AND res down to 1080 it still stutters like crazy. And this is a machine that runs everything I've thrown at it, at maxed settings in most cases, at 4k, and at an average of 60fps so don't tell me it's not a broken mess, because it definitely is. If Ubi don't fix these issues soon, i'll be demanding my cash back post haste!
So is the 20fps and countless glitches on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One due to "Hiccups with certain AMD Cpu and Gpu Configurations"? /s <---- @Dudebro, happy now?
Learn to read.
what? learn to understand obvious sarcasm. guess you need a /s at the end because it isn't obvious enough for you.
Piss poor performance.
teach them a lesson Dont buy the game, money talks
I just came from my local walmart, the PS4 & XB1 have A LOT of copies just sitting there, made me smile.
You think Sony would be happy with Ubisoft gimping the PS4 version. You should take something from Sony's silence that Ubisoft did the best they could with this game. If anything they were overambitious with this game. Releasing the game with bugs and low frame rate are genuine issues, but like i said Ubisoft felt it was worth it for their own reasons. I think they should have scaled back a bit to get a more solid 30fps on both consoles. To be honest graphics wise most reviewers said it was next gen a step up from the last AC. So i wouldn't knock down for that. To be honest the only people to blame here are Microsoft and Sony. Why choose a CPU running a very low clock, in hindsight it looks like a wrong decision. [email protected] CPU's are a big deal. I had a Nivida 660gtx comparable to the PS4 gpu and i had a lower clocked CPU 2.4ghz inside my computer and frame rate was bad when i tried to run current next gen games. I went a bought a new computer with i74790k CPU 4.2ghz and gtx770 and its night and day compared to what i had before. Frame rates are solid 60 no problem. I was hitting low 20's with some games on my last computer.
I call bull on this entirely. I know a couple people that have a GTX 770 (was gonna get one myself at one point but now gonna get a 970) and they cant come close to reaching 60fps. They average about 28fps on Ultra High and get barely 50fps average on Medium settings. Thats bull you get solid 60fps no problem.
The game runs well on my GTX 770 when I cap the framerate at 30fps using "half refresh rate vsync" in nvidia inspector. I knew this game was going to be demanding just looking at the graphics tech used in the game. It's going to be basically the same thing with games like The Witcher 3 or Batman Arkham Knight in order to run them at max settings. Unity just gets the heat because it is one of the first fully current gen games, not a cross-gen game. Plus it's an open world game, which are always more demanding. All the cross-gen games this gen gave people a false sense of what to expect this generation. I predict that most of the more graphically demanding games this generation will be in the same ballpark as Unity in terms of hardware demands. However, I do agree that on fixed hardware such as the consoles they should have not been so ambitious, and they should have pared back the graphics as needed in order to get a stable 30fps.
WE cannot optimize a game, so Lets blame AMD CPUs and GPUs I have an nvidia GPU, but bcuz I did not buy this crap, I cannot tell you Anyone with an nvidia GPU was lucky enough to get this game, can you state wether you are having these issues? Thank you
Check TotalBiscuit on twitter and youtube he pissed off even with his new GTX 980 SLI
He only made the video about the embargo stuff yet not the performance, I just checked his twitter apperently the game keeps crashing constantly
I'm in love with this game. #TheFewTheProud.
Not sure if sarcasm....joke....or being serious...-___-
Why would it be a joke? There have been plenty of reviewers who gave the game 8s and 9s, so why is it so inconceivable that other gamers might feel the same way? Don't tell me you are one of those people that hasn't even played the game, yet feel they just 'know' that the game sucks or is a "broken mess". That's what I mostly see: a bunch of people that haven't played the game bouncing their pre-conceived ideas off of each other and believing it strengthens their case against the game. I'm so damn glad I'm not a sheep like that. I would have missed out on so many good games due to these stupid negative bandwagons. Unity is solid game. It runs well on my PC, looks incredible, and is a really enjoyable experience so far.
@starchild A sheep? I have been getting a lovely 28fps in town during this game and recently about 20 fps during the Bastille escape. I have MSI R9 280X in Crossfire with a FX 8370 8-Core Overclocked to 4.3Ghz.....and on medium settings with the textures on low. Not to mention I had to try and kill the Assassin in the Prologue 3 times because he kept getting clipped in the wall and wouldn't move, so I couldnt kill him. Had to die and restart....So yea I KNOW for a fact the game is a broken mess. And considering spending $50 on garbage isn't putting me in a good mood, Not entirely happy with this. The game is complete bullshit. So you can see whatever you would like to see, but considering there are so many complaints out there about this and even Ubisoft had to make a statement, pretty sure there is an issue. And your "reviewers" are running on testing rigs for major companies which spend thousands of dollars keeping their Rigs up to date with the latest hardware. No shit they are not going to have performance issues unless they specifically want to test that out. The reviews are for the game itself and only a tiny bit about performance. And my comment to him was legit, I actually did not really get if he was serious or not because of the wording.
Well, sorry you are having problems with the game, but I honestly am not. I can't do anything about that. Am I supposed to hate the game even though it runs well for me and is fun and looks amazing? The reviews I was referring to were instances where they played one of the console versions and gave the game 9s or 8s. Plenty of people are enjoying this game, that much is undeniable. I do know that the console versions suffer from some pretty bad framearate drops and that is unfortunate. Ubisoft should have made a stable framerate more of a priority. I also don't doubt that some PC gamers with certain configurations are having issues, and that too is unfortunate. But it's still not right to call the game a "buggy mess" in general. That certainly hasn't been my experience.
Fps dropps, stutterings, flying NPC's, Pop ups, bad textures. Well i feel bad for us players that support them still...
Boy Ubisoft really has no shame! I ran the game on a 4690k/GTX 770 PC and it ran like dog shit. I know I shouldn't be surprised at this point by anything these sad sacks say but this is a doozy. Blame AMD for your shit performance all you want Ubisoft- what little faith your customers had in you has just vanished.
I hope no one believes this was anything other then bad optimization even with new i7 cpus and gtx900 range cards this game is having major issues on pc. How in the world did Ubisoft release this on consoles at all. Was there no QA and testing? No use of being so impressive looking on paper if it runs like poo.
Next time ''borrow'' the game dont buy from them
Here's hiping far cry 4 isn't a total flop too!
