Ubisoft has released a video of Watch Dogs' PC version in action, showing off the fruits of its collaboration with PC graphics firm Nvidia.

Lead PC engineer Paul Vlasie lays out an assortment of visual techniques exclusive to the game's PC version, including Nvidia-backed horizon-based ambient occlusion and anti-aliasing technologies.

"By working with Nvidia, we really want to make sure PC gamers will be able to enjoy and explore the most realistic and visually stunning world environment ever created," Vlasie says in the video. "The Windy City like you've never seen it before."

It still seems to not look the same quality as the demo that was shown. But it is slightly improved. Lets hope this is gameplay and not pre-rendered footage...

Nevertheless, there are still horrible textures to be seen.

As long as the graphics is not Console quality, I'll be fine. But I hope the gameplay is better, since I love this type of open world game.

I like the whole, "by working with nvidia using exclusive nvidia features we ensure pc gamers get blah blah blah" I think he meant to say we ensure nvidia owners get blah blah blah. I will not preorder this and will wait to see how gimped it is on amd.

Not hating on nvidia, but I am bring cautious.

Long story short instead of AA we used TXAA which causes blur and other techniques to make the game have lower requirements and therefore we can justify a bad port. (that was what I got from the video)


While it reduces aliasing it blurs the entire image as you can see in the picture above.

So AMD users wont utilize the new tech? HBAO+ sounds nice. I hate the current overhead when you use HBAO.

Can't wait.

Also I hope they include a bench with the game so we can compare systems on OCN.
