There has been a lot of controversy on the fact that Assassin’s Creed Unity will run in 900p resolution on both PS4 and Xbox One, but apparently Ubisoft is sticking to its guns, and has words of high praise for the game’s visuals.
It really is, the attention to detail is on a whole new level, especially the interiors.
Can't help but think that it should have been prettier. -_- Thats my first thought anyway. All those details in shiny 1080p would really make it look better....or am I mistaken?
Your mistaken, very mistaken indeed. Resolution doesn't mean a game cant have excellent visuals, brilliant lighting, shading and aesthetics. And tbh, acu has the best graphics on a game that is coming out this year.
I never said it looks bad...it looks awesome..... I'm just saying it should have looked even better. They have said they gimped it to avoid controversy themselves....smh so yes its a pretty game but imagine if they didn't gimp it.....it would even better......fact.
I would rather have exquisite artificial intelligence on screen and excellent clothing mechanics plus decent co-op, all of which drain resources alot. I would rather have all of those things than have higher numbers on things that wont be as noticeable as the list previously stated in this comment and mt previous. Resolution doesn't guarantee good visuals, u can have a game look better in 900p than 1080p if u do it right. Instead of people stubbornly believing that 1080p makes a game look great and anything under isn't worth anyone's time. Assassins creed unity is proof positive that you can have a great looking game plus all the a.i and co-op, again, all resource draining. And if a game looks this damn good. I dnt care what the specs are.
When Assassin's Creed 1 was released in late-2007, the game was ahead of its league. And I am not just talking about its graphics, but its overall gameplay. 2007 was really special because we got to see the sprout of some of the most amazing game franchises in the industry like Witcher, Crysis, Bioshock, Mass Effect, Portal, Call of Duty 4.. and the list goes on. I wonder when will that repeat again?
I really hope so, but I doubt it
Man, I thought AC felt like a tech demo, or at the very least an unfinished product. AC2 always felt like the game that the original AC should have been. I agree that 2007 was a great year, but for me, AC was the big disappointment of 2007.
Nice of you to leave off Uncharted from 2007.
I'm sure it is a very pretty game, the last few AC games have looked very nice, but lets face it if I was a publisher I'd say the exact same thing about a game of mine about to come out.
I don't doubt this to be true. But I also don't doubt that it will be just as tedious, monotonous, and tiresome as Ubisoft's other open world games. They clearly have a template they use in order to churn them out regularly, and unfortunately every time I play one I feel like I've been tricked into doing someone's chores.
Resolution doesn't dictate image quality. Once gamers get that through their head they will start looking at games correctly once again.
It will probably be the most unoptimized one as well, considering their history. 4GB VRAM a necessity. HAH!
Just another hype piece from the publisher. Don't get hyped if you want the game to be good.
Looks decent, Characters are nothing special like GTA games, but maybe that's because there are many of them in those games.
Ubisoft, the masters of hyping their own games.
The hype machine for WatchDogs was masterful. It's a lot easier to get sales through marketing and hype than actually making a great game.
But of course. They won't go and say oh acu looks nice not uncharted quality buy it's nice.. they gona hype of their game can't wait to download this game on pc torr. Won't support a developer that cuts corners just for the simple fact to not creat a comparison issue. As a developer myself that's just an easy eexcuse to please the company that has the marketing deal. Cause your goal as developer is to maximize every asset that is given to u to create the best vision for your game as possible u should never cut back just to please someone. This to me is art and when u hold your art back cause u decided to paint on a flea market canvas instead of a high quality canvas then u don't deserve recognition
It certainly is
