During an interview with Examiner (via GamePur), Alex Amancio, the creative director, stated that the development team was not able to make a last-gen version of the next Assassin's Creed.
It's 'impossible' on this Gen too.
Yes as we all know by now it is impossiple on this gen too:D
took the words right from my mouth XD
Assassin's Creed can only handle 900p because of the bugs that they cant fix.
They should just stop talking about this game already. There is no olive branch they can present that wont be broken, burned, and pissed on. Besides the more they talk about it the less I want it.
Their games have really been shit recently. Sucks because they used to make amazing games.
How so? Are you saying that the PS4 and Xbox One versions are mere mirages? That they don't really exist? lol It's sad that such a silly comment would get so many agrees. The game is very much possible on this gen and it looks fantastic, even at 900p. But if Unity isn't possible on this gen because it is running at a resolution below 1080p does that mean that games like The Order 1886 are impossible on this gen too? It's running at a lower resolution as well. I expect all of you guys to start hating on that game, otherwise you are hypocrites.
1. that was just a Joke but you are soo sensetive that any thing to you is for real 2.their game is not even 1080p and they can't even make a stable framerate...and the GFX doesn't look that much better than Black Flag 3.There is nothing sad but your comments TBH you keep defend every thing Ubisoft do like you work for them or something they never do any thing wrong in your little eyes .....no one here is bashing their games ..they are just bashing Ubisoft Policy also it's not about just Resolution it's about them not trying to push both consoles to their limits and wants only parity also if Unity is pushing half the GFX The order 1886 is showing ...no one would ever complain but it don't not only that but the fact that they admit that they are going for parity and then backtrack their own words ....and now Ubisoft Developer is saying : "Linear story games are really going to suffer in the modern marketplace" ..show who they really are i mean WTF is that ?! But hey, you must be cool with that since they can do no wrong you act like they are only hated for what they do here on N4G go to what ever site you like the result will still be the same and stop with your damn sad excuse that any one not Ok with what Ubisoft is doing is a fanboy They are 3rd party Developer ...there is no conspiracy here and never once i said i hate their games in fact i F love Assassin's creed Black flag ...and i even liked Watch_Dog So cut the crap already
1. I know it was a joke, but it makes no sense and isn't funny anyway. 2. The graphics look much better than Black Flag. You need glasses. Unity is using provably more advanced graphics tech than Black Flag. The character models feature more polygons, better skin shaders, sub-surface scattering, new hair rendering tech, and physically based rendering. The whole game is at a 1-to-1 scale, whereas Black Flag was at two-thirds scale. There is simply more being rendered on screen in Unity by far. The whole game has been upgraded to a physically based rendering approach to materials and lighting, on top of the HDR global illumination model. The scale of the crowds is insane. No other game comes close to having the number of NPCs on screen as AC Unity. Those are just a few of the ways that Unity is far superior to Black Flag, but there are plenty of others as well. 3. If you read enough of my comment history you would see that I don't say only good things about Ubisoft. I just think that they are being unfairly attacked for illogical reasons. Ubisoft have made a lot of really great games I have played recently and they are one of the few third party devs that go out of their way to add graphical enhancements for most of their PC games. They don't deserve most of this hate. Bashing Ubisoft is just another one of the stupid bandwagons we get in gaming. So what is this Ubisoft policy that you are supposedly bashing? Please don't say "parity" because that's just nonsense. They have never said their policy is parity. In fact they have officially stated that they do not and will not limit their games on any platform. All of their games so far have shown differences and advantages for the more powerful hardware. Their PC versions have extra graphical features beyond both consoles and their PS4 versions have always shown advantages over the Xb1 versions. The mere fact that AC Unity is currently the same resolution on PS4 as on XB1 does not mean that they are the same in other areas. I will bet you money that AC Unity will have superior graphics on PS4 than on XB1 and may run better as well. So how about you just wait until you actually have the facts before crucifying Ubisoft? When a Ubisoft dev said 30fps is more cinematic I called him out for it. That's just not true and it was a stupid thing to say. I criticize Ubisoft or any other developer when they actually deserve it, but most of the hate they have been getting lately is not warranted. AC Unity looks amazing and you have to be blind not to see that. It is easily one of the best looking games yet and definitely competes with The Order 1886, while also being a massive open world game. If you can't see what a huge accomplishment that is I don't know what to tell you. As far as them being bashed on other sites beyond N4G, well that's true, but it doesn't make it right. It's mostly the same few thousand people that visit all the different game sites and make the most noise. A lot of the same people on N4G I've also seen on sites like neogaf or gamespot, for example. It's really just a vocal minority of people that probably account for less than 1% of gamers, but they seem to think they are really important. In reality most sensible gamers and the entire industry don't ultimately care too much what these fanboys think. But it's still wrong for them to spread their irrational hate all over the internet.
Isn't that how a next gen games should be anyway?
Ubisoft talk too much. can gaming sites stop contacting and interviewing them or is Ubisoft just spouting loads of troll comments to create artificial hype ? Ubisoft games have good concepts but the games are terrible. why is Assassin's Creed called Assassin Creed if theres not many ways to kill target ? Hitman Blood Money is what the Assassin's Creed games should belike.
Lol. Impossible. -Still the same climbing up for birds eye view with long cinematics -same AI -counter kill everything. I hope at least they take out the following your target and sit at a bench BS. The only thing new from the last game was pirating the seas which in fact was more fun than the original game itself.
I absolutely hate the whole following a person without being detected missions, they are just such a pain! And most of the time I'm too busy trying not to get seen than actually listening to what they say. They are pointless. I agree that it doesnt look impossible on last gen, but it does look like the best AC since Ac2. I just couldnt stand the whole pirating thing in blackflag
The Ubisoft ego trip continues. Impossible is a meaningless word with them, most of what they say is so pretentious. Assassins Creed should be selling it's appeal on its own merit, no need to delve into the "what if?" scenarios.
Since it's AI that's holding this game back why not put it on Azure and have the Xbone run at 1080p/60. #nomorePS4parity.
They should run that on the cloud for both consoles and PC. They're all fully capable of it. Why not use Azure for all three? Microsoft owns the Azure servers. The Xbox division just uses them.
You don't need Azure to do things like Cloud AI or Cloud anything. Azure is just a fancy name for Microsoft's servers. Ubisoft could use servers from anyone else and still do the same things.
That's why I said what I said.
Why can't people stop moaning this gen? Don't want the game? Don't buy the game. But just STFU already.
You complain about people moaning by moaning yourself. Why don't you take your own advice and stfu.
Why don't you get back under your bridge and STFU troll? All I'm doing is advising people to vote with their wallets if they don't like something. Believe me, that will be the only thing that will ever change a publishers strategy, not moaning on the internet. Stop wasting your breath people and give everybody's ears a rest.
@porkCHop Why don't you piss off? Most of us are sick of you pathetic fanboys and entitled crybabies. You whiners are irrational as hell and honestly represent maybe .01% of gamers, yet you have to constantly spread your negativity and hate everywhere. What's the point? All you are doing is annoying other gamers with your nonsense and making the gaming community a more negative and toxic place to be. Complaining about @ssholes and trying to push things in a better direction is not the same as being an @sshole yourself. That kind of moral relativism is wrong. If I use force to stop an innocent man from being beaten I am not "just as bad" as the assailant. Only a moron would think the two things are equivalent.
Yay, more baseless Ubisoft bashing in the comment section again... I still laugh at the fact these games still sell in the millions despite the vocal trolling minority.
Sorry Ubi, seems no one believes you or everyone has gotten over it as they are looking for the next "FIRE" to holler and yell about. Funny that certain people truly wanted to believe that since older Ubi games that appeared cross gen could run just fine on PS4 that this one made from the ground up should be able to also. Just goes to show the narrow views of some when they really want to believe something that's not there and not take anything else into consideration.
I generally like Ubisoft but this is complete crap. It looks on par or a tad worse with many cross-gen games and the only new thing they brought to the series besides is going into building which many games did seamlessly last gen. But whatever helps justify something that doesn't need justifying...
You're crazy. Assassin's Creed Unity is one of the most "next gen" looking games we have seen yet. It's by far one of the most advanced in terms of the graphics tech it is using, not to mention the massive scale and density of the city and crowds. Its character models are some of the most impressive yet seen in a game, only being rivaled by games like The Order 1886. Once I saw what they were doing from a technical point of view I suspected that it would not run at 1080p on either console. There is no way in hell this game could run on last gen consoles. Some of you are just so ultra sensitive to anything Ubisoft says that you jump on even the most harmless comments. Devs say things like this all the time,, it's almost standard. I've heard most devs make comments like: "Our game wouldn't be possible on last gen consoles", "our game is only possible on PS4", etc. These are extremely common comments to make, especially around the beginning of a new generation.
Not possible on this new underpowered gen either, seeing as it can't hit 1080P with what they're putting in the game. SMH.
Gunna be hard to beat their awesome pirate game! Still think they should make a ninja AC...
It worries me that next gen consoles are struggling to get 1080p...
Well I'd rather say that the developers struggle. Wii U has more games than Xbone and PS4 in 1080p and 60fps. Though I rather want better graphics than resolution. but that's just me.
