Our PC videos of ECHO

ECHO has been available for a couple of days now, but we were only able to start the adventure yesterday evening. As you'll see, the pace is rather slow, the game taking the time to introduce the player with all the different gameplay meachanics in what is a pretty long opening act. It explains why we had to prepare so many videos, which is something we rarely do for such titles, as we felt it was necessary to edit our footage as little as possible. You should then be able to enjoy the game's very peculiar atmosphere, but also note the several performance issues we have encountered so far. The game is indeed pretty demanding in ultra, even when running in 1080p with a GTX 1080. We even had to set the antialiasing to high instead of ultra, which didn't prevent a few drops and freezes from happening. The first video was encoded in 1080p but the game was running in 1440p, which was of course a lot worse. Let's hope those problems can be fixed because they are quite distracting and the game truly deserves some praises side from that from what we've seen.

    GriftGFX I mean they can keep upgrading it but why bother when they have more capable engines already. (7 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I just think it shows its age in a lot of ways in FC5 and they have better tech so they should use it. (7 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth

  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @HR2: a lot of studios used modified UE3, games like Arkham Knight, XCom2, both being very problematic on pc. Interesting to see what those studios will do for their next games. (8 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @HR2: Ubisoft uses their own engines. They have like.. three solid in house game engines. (8 Hours ago)
  • HR2
    HR2 @Melmoth: agreed. speaking of Ubisoft, I wonder which engine they're using for the next Splinter Cell. a heavily modified UE3 like Batman AK or UE4? (8 Hours ago)
