"Check this E3 2015 vs 2016 PS4 Alpha Graphics comparison of For Honor - a brand new IP from Ubisoft"
Good ol ubisoft at it again lol! ** Oh wow heh looks like Ubi is getting ready to win some hearts now simply because the actual game doesn't look anywhere as downgraded as many of their other titles. Congrats Ubi! Seriously though, yeah the game looks great but the little details kill things sometimes, maybe not for you but definitely for me.
Other than the flames it looks great.
I'd say we finally get true reveal, not that bullshot videos like we used to :) Bravo Ubisoft!
@Xzviur_Azai Maybe you should stop assuming and actually watch the video and realize its fairly spot on for the most part. And in most cases the alpha footage looks better then the reveal. Color me impressed.
dude I have to agree with you , when they showed the first still on the slider , i thought the 2016 shot was better and surprised
It looks better than e3 and in the cases it doesn't its because its a ps4 not a pc.
A Ubisoft game showcasing an upgrade from their E3 showing? The end is near.
I didn't notice any upgrade? However, I didn't notice any significant downgrades, only very minor details. Glad to see it's still running well and looking gorgeous.
Almost everything either looks better or at least on par, aside from the fire effects.
I must not of watched the same video then. I'd have to agree with YinYang. Not a huge downgrade like other Ubi games in the past but it was definitely not better. Fire detail was dropped so was shadow and smoke effects. Detail on tree line and hills in the distance were reduced. Texture details were reduced but only very slightly. Lighting was also reduced. Can notice when he is indoors running up the stairs and the lighting effects and glare was reduced alot on the 2016 build over the E3 reveal. It was alot better then Ubisoft past games but E3 2015 build definitely had more effects and details in scenes.
It's an alpha.... What was shown at E3 would have been polished as it's for a trade show.....
Upgrade? Compare the tree's in the background and the plants on the walls... Clearly E3 was prerendered and the new videos are actually in game.
I wouldnt say upgrade, but its certainly not a downgrade either. Looks like standard optimization of graphical effects and such. The two things that I would say were downgraded, were the fire/trail effects and maybe the lighting but only very slightly. The previous footage had a more soft and natural look to it, but now its more yellowish. On the upside, it seems that they have slightly more vibrant color grading, and little bit more sharper image (looking at the woods in the first few seconds)
Is this PC vs PC, or PC vs console? In any case the game looks and performs great (on PS4 at least). I was actually surprised with the visuals and animations. The alpha is very enjoyable.
both are on PS4. There is "X" button icon visible in one of stills from 2015 :)
No lol....they use ps4 controller/xbox controller when demoing it at e3 or whatever show convention while still playing it on pc :) You do know xbox controllers/ps4 controllers connect to pc and are useable for almost every game right? Buy hey developers know cyckiewicz will be tricked by this tactic and will think what he is seeing is ps4 footage but actually pc when they demo it to the public.
Edit. Scratch that, I remembered wrong. Button prompts still barely mean anything in prerelease footage.
The alpha is ps4 footage. The E3 footage.. Who knows it could be either.
I think it looks nice and it's lots of fun me & my mate's are enjoying it can't wait now for full game.
Playing with friends is the way to go. I find it frustrating playing solo. Wish there was a proper training mode in the alpha.
What do you mean by a proper training mode? You could play the training session with any of the available characters and keep practicing until you got bored or felt familiar enough. I'm sure there will be a deeper training option in the final game, and it will probably help you learn combos and advanced techniques.
@zen_hydra - You were only able to pull off prompted moves in the alpha training mode. I'd like to be able to try all moves, feats etc on a dummy or soldier. Loved it anyways. Very deep and rewarding combat. Had so much fun playing Warden and countering poor Orochi players to death. :)
Wish I could be playing the alpha now, been hearing lots of good things about this game.
Yep me too. Signed up the day they revealed it at e3 last year but never got an alpha invite. Bummer.
Got an invite but for some reason can't access my code -_-
i got an invite from my friend and when i went to register for it it kept refreshing the webpage
You have to admire that it isn't a sequel and brand new IP. Shame it looks so uninteresting and as purchaseble to me than the likes of Watchdogs 1/2, Rainbow Six New One, Ghost Recon Blaine Countyland or The Division. More games like Child of Light please.
Six siege is great and this game looks great too
This game was surprisingly great. It was very polished for an alpha build, and it's one of very few multiplayer focused games to get its hooks into me. This alpha was a real success for Ubisoft, because I'm having a hard time thinking about anything other than wanting to play more of it.
Loving the alpha. Game is a ton of fun. Can't wait to see them expand more. Add in Ninjas and other factions. Also add in more minions to make the battle feel even more packed. Awesome game.
I think each faction will have 4 classes. One of them is the Oni (samurai) which might not look like a ninja, but pretty much behaves like one. :) https://www.youtube.com/wat...
That's the Orochi (I believe they changed the name). That's the character I use primary.
Ah ok. I mostly play as Warden.
The 2016 demo looks like it uses more natural lighting.
I'm in the closed alpha on PC and it looks incredible. And the performance is butter smooth in 60 fps or higher if you have the hardware for it. I cant speak for the PS4 version but as far as the PC version goes it looks incredible.
Have any pc invitations lying around? ;)
wow pre alpha is better build than a year later build lol
You obviously need your eyes checked.....Roflmao
well my eyes are definitely not 20/20 that's why i wear glasses :) but the fire in pre alpha looks better in my opinion but i am not a graphics guy to be quite honest with you. Gameplay where video games should shine :)
No you don't need your eyes checked mate. Some other people do. Lots of little details reduced in the new 2016 build. Both builds look great but E3 2015 still looks better. Typical Ubi game
I'm in the aplha and the game is very addictive. Visuals also look good. The duels are competitive and you cannot win just button mashing. Game takes skill and has a slight learning curve. Ps4 game looks good!
Where is my smoke bitch?
There is a difference, but i dont think its necessarily good or bad. Theyve made some changes.
http://n4g.com/news/1960584... The last guardian 2015/2016 For honor 2015/2016 One game is showing clear improvements while the other is another new ip from Ubi which is over hyped I like Ubi but whenever they launch new ip their game never delivers on its potential
it was prob running on higher end PC
Only a minor downgrade? immpossible! JK UBIsoft seems to finally starts learning.
Aren;t we usually watching videos showcasing Ubisoft downgrades?It's a nice change.Hopefully upgrades will be the norm.
I see no upgrades. I see less detail in Fire effects. I see less detail in shadows. Smoke completely remover from scenes. Less detail in treeline and hills in the distance. Less detail in textures and the vines around the gate. Lighting effects reduced. What did you notice that was an upgrade over the pre alpha?
I'm having a excellent time with this game. It has earned my preorder and what ever collectors editions and season passes they offer. I expected to like it, but it's Ubisoft and they have not made me absolutely love them since splinter cell chaos theory. I've liked some of their other games and Black Flag was close, but I am beyond happy with this so far. Orochi needs a small nerf, but I'm thrilled.
a-an.. An upgrade? From ubi? Great work it looks good.
Freaking consoles are holding back the games to be worked from the roots with best graphics. This is what happens when you develop for a lot of systems.
GASP! Might it actually looks slightly better. Looks closer... Nope.
Looked fantastic on the PS4 alpha, shame the rest of the game isn't that great.
Still won't buy an Ubisoft game.
Those that actually think 2015 looks better then the Alpha.. put on your glasses and lay off the pot. Obviously your smoking the wrong shit. The game is fun. Intense. Dominiation needs some work as it can quickly end one sided. But two vs two and duel is where its at! "1vs1 brah!" will make a comeback with this! lol
