[Various] Subpar visuals in Watch_Dogs Ubisoft Frightened Due to Backlash - Page 6

It's Aliens: Colonic Marines 2.0 people.

From what I understand, that infamous GIF that is floating around is actually footage from the PS3 or Wii U version. The "Story Trailer" uses footage from all sorts of different versions of the game, which makes no sense whatsoever, but that explains the discrepancy in visual quality present throughout. People that have had hands-on time with a recent build of the PS4 version said that it looks really fantastic, so I don't think that GIF holds as much water as people think it does. I'm all for spreading the truth and bringing attention to things that appear to be alarming, but this is one case of misinformation bringing forth more confusion.

It's very likely that there have been downgrades since the E3 2012 trailer in spite of this. I remember someone posting evidence that the original trailer was staged as well, because there were moments when the character 'Aiden' was moving while the guy on stage "playing it" wasn't even touching the controller buttons.

So basically, just wait and see since the game isn't far away from release. Ubisoft is well-known for their bullshots and mock trailers/presentations, so downgrades of some sort should be expected.

That's true, but I recall seeing a tweet from ubi i think, with the vid link, someone asking if this is the PS4 version and they said yes with a smiley face lol

I remember that as well, lol. Do you remember whether or not it was from one of their PR guys, or an actual dev? I saw an image from one of their "hot female" PR persons on twitter, where she basically said the game looks great, and then publicly stated that Outlast was a nice game, but had "crappy graphics", lol. Their PR team doesn't seem to be so great at professionalism.

Most likely the trailer was meant to be thought of as a PS4 trailer, but was terribly edited. Remember that trailer from late last year which had almost PS2-level graphics? Then they came out and said the guys who were rendering the trailer "messed up, hit the wrong switches" or something?

Some true wackos over at Ubisoft, that's for sure.

Did you see the Gamespot demo? That was all done on the PS4 including the .gif that compares the car jumping over the bridge scene (since it was ripped from the Gamespot demo).

They did it with far cry 3:



Demos had better lighting and much more detailed foliage than the final game.

But still, the PC version of watch dogs will still probably look awesome.

I don't get it. I'm assuming the pictures on the right are pre-release because of the watermarks and compression artifacts. Everything in the left-hand side looks better to me. I think the game looks beautiful with everything maxed out, it just runs like garbage.

It's Ubisoft. I'm not really surprised tbh. Like some have said FC3 did something similar (although that does look quite good) and it shares a lot of concepts with AC3, just like FC2 did with AC1 back in the day. I don't think this game is going to be all that great...

Anyway here's hoping the remaining 2 months or so are enough to polish this game properly.

Edit: a thought just occurred to me. If they had the game looking like it did at e3 2012 and set to launch with next gen console, could it be that it was delayed because they couldn't get it running well enough to have it look that pretty? In which case Ubisoft have spent the last 6 months of the development cycle making the game look worse.

Lol I know farcry, by far, was a better game at every level but the point about graphics deception still stands. They both showcased a demo at e3 that turned out to be different than the final product. That is all I meant.

This game is coming with subpar graphics, its 100% sure.

If you want any reference check:

Assassins Creed Black Flag

FarCry 3

Enough examples to show that Ubisoft doesnt deliver what they promise.

So one of the best single player action games and probablly the only good single player fps in the past couple years is the reference check. Bring on the subpar graphics then.
