Check it out in the video below. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3-h8me2zrRw Assassin's Creed Unity hits stores on November 11th for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Smith's Sentiment: All that looks good. I like the sound of the murder mysteries, and it's about time they change up the assassination/contract missions. Making those missions a narrative should make them a lot better. The co-op heists missions sound like a lot of fun, and should offer up a lot of replay value since guard locations … [Read more...]

Ubisoft Issues Laughable Response on Assassin’s Creed Unity’s Resolution

Assassin's Creed Unity

Ubisoft, you should have just stayed quite. Stop saying things unless you're going to be honest. Sr. Communications Manager Gary Steinman took to the Ubisoft blog today to try and address the recent controversy regarding Assassin's Creed Unity, its resolution, and parity concerns. You can read the whole thing here. Let’s be clear up front: Ubisoft does not constrain its games. We would not limit a game’s resolution. And we would never do anything to intentionally diminish anything we’ve produced or developed. Let's be clear up front: All other things identical, there's no way the PS4 version should be 900p if the Xbox One version is 900p. That it is shows that they aren't taking full advantage of the more powerful system, which would mean they are intentionally diminishing a version. … [Read more...]

Assassin’s Creed Unity Devs Think 30fps Looks and Feels Better, More “Cinematic”

Assassin's Creed Unity

The spin from Ubisoft continues to be hilariously bad. Earlier in the week came the report that Assassin's Creed Unity was going to be identical on Xbox One and PS4 with the game running at a locked 30fps and 900p on both systems. This forced parity was to "avoid debates," even though it's fact that the PS4 is the more powerful of the two machines and shouldn't have games held back to achieve parity with Xbox One. Now, courtesy of Tech Radar, comes the news that Unity developers think 60fps will be dropped as a standard because 30fps is more cinematic and feels better. Quote from Assassin's Creed Unity's Nicolas Guérin, World Level Design Director: "At Ubisoft for a long time we wanted to push 60 fps. I don't think it was a good idea because you don't gain that much from 60 fps and it … [Read more...]

Assassin’s Creed Unity is 900p/30fps on PS4/XOne Because of Forced Parity

Assassin's Creed Unity

Ubisoft, NO! I was excited for Assassin's Creed: Unity. The series is, after all, my favorite franchise. But now what was a "day one" has become a "when it goes on sale." Why? Because Ubisoft has made a decision that I don't support. Speaking to Videogamer.com, Unity's senior producer Vincent Pontbriand said that the PS4 and Xbox One version would both run at 900p/30fps because "We decided to lock them at the same specs to avoid all the debates and stuff." Right. The developers made a decision to lock down specs because they didn't want gamers to debate which version was better. Okay. Sure. In reality, they have deliberately held back the PS4 version to achieve parity with Xbox One. It's no surprise that this happens when Microsoft has the marketing deal for Assassin's Creed: Unity. … [Read more...]
