Jesus, this is worse than Aliens Colonial Marines....

I would be ashamed to be on this project, no way anyone in their right mind thinks this is OK.

Hot Hardware has an article up about it. I hope this this really blows up in Ubi's face. Shame on them.

I really hope the PC version is close to E3 quality, maybe something like a FC3 downgrade, on PC that got downgraded aswell, but not this bad, this looks like its lacking dynamic lighting among many other things so it just looks dry and bland, this game was supposedly built on PCs with the anticipation of porting it to next gen systems when they release and then scaling it down etc, so there might be hope, atm no one knows what the final PC version is gonna look like.

Why should we even have to hope things dont get downgraded as much if at all?

All I see is bashing them and no clear answer. I thought these "downgraded" graphics were only for old consoles and the trailers were all PC so whats the big deal?

I was considering picking this game up and would like to know.

This is hearsay (I don’t have the link) but I remember reading somewhere that the ps4 and pc graphics will be nearly identical. In other words pc is going to look like crud too. when I get home from work I'll see if I can find the link.

This was posted over at the Ubisoft forums by Watchdogs's Creative Director Jonathan Morin. Still, I take any thing they say with a grain of salt. Since he is obviously a part of the Watchdogs development team, his opinion would be biased.

I agree with what a poster said over there, a picture is worth a thousand words and a video, a whole lot more. Release ACTUAl PC pics/video of the current build and that may help put some of these complaints to rest (if it still looks anything like that e3 demo). Honestly, Ubisoft, your words do very little for me and I'm sure most everyone else. If you could lie to us in the first place what reason do we have to trust anything you say?

So Jonathan Morin and Ubisoft, pics/video or get the "fake" out!

They aren't going to bother changing the PS4 version for the PC to be more visually stunning. This is the company that believes that 95% to 98% of PC gamers are pirates, and stole their games.

They can run around and say "I think it looks stunning", and when it really looks like ass they can say "Well it as just an opinion!". If they had any intention of keeping the game visually stunning, like they showed off, they wouldn't have bothered ruining the visuals.

Here is my guess on what went down....

They did the big old "Flashy Flash" reveal, to drive hype, and then realized "Ah crap, the consoles can't really perform at that level. Gotta scrap visuals.", and just did it across the board, instead of just on consoles.

OR!

They are pulling a pre-planned bait/switch, in that they presented visuals they knew they weren't going to continue with, just to drive the hype of the game and get people interested. Knowing that most people will commit themselves to buying it, even with lackluster visuals.

...and this. Hmmm what could it be? More disappointment? Or possibly they're getting a hint and will show PC game play that's not cut down from the console versions. Doubt the latter though.

The last one is correct. These companies have been pulling these tactics for far too long for it to be just an error of judgement. Well, it was an error but one they knew about beforehand and willingly perpetuated. They give an amazing visual display to captivate the audience and then proceed to slaughter the game in hopes our zombified consumeristic minds wont be able to tell the difference.

Perhaps it was realised that if they wanted to release a game that was going to have a large player environment that they needed to reduce the graphics quality a bit to keep the game size down?

Who knows, maybe they read all the comments from the cry babies complaining on OCN about the 48GB required for Titanfall and decided that keeping the size down was better rolleyes.gif
