Our PS4 Pro videos of ACO

Our PS4 Pro videos of ACO

Assassin's Creed Origins will be available later this week but we thought you might like to see the game in action on PS4 Pro before its official release. Inside you'll find spoiler-free videos showing some gameplay elements but above all some nice strolls in the beautiful landscapes of the game. This is without a doubt the most gorgeous Assassin's Creed game to date, bringing Ubisoft's series on par with (or at least very close to) technical references such as Horizon: Zero Dawn, no less. Enjoy!
Note: Our version of the game does include the Day One patch.

Great videos, it does look really good. Does the game have supersampling for 1080p?
Its getting really annoying having to wait for release impressions to find out stuff like this instead of an official dev announcement beforehand

With the marketing that MS has I'm surprised to see Pro footage here before release.

they need to show it on PS4 prior to launch, marketing deal or no marketing deal, it's the system it'll sell the most on.

Running animations are the same across all Ubisoft games

@Driftwwod:

Do you mean on a console or in general?

Because Assassin's Creed: Unity's Dead Kings DLC on PC with all settings maxed is probably the most gorgeous game I ever played, technical quality wise - even at 1080p. It's like playing a real time CG movie and I can't even imagine how even more gorgeous it would look at 2160p.

As beautiful as Horizon: Zero Dawn is, it never reached that level of "real time CG movie" even at pseudo 2160p. So it would be interesting to know what you mean by that.

Aside from that, AC:Origins looks great, but I didn't get the impression that it looked better than AC:Unity from all the 4k gameplay walkthroughs I've watched. Though I will only be able to judge that by playing at max settings on PC when it launches.

Thank you Driftwood, the footage looks amazing! By far this is my most anticipated Game of the Year!

I haven't played Dead Kings, but Unity does not look as good to me overall. It's probably still ahead in terms of lighting, but Origins has a day/night cycle and vegetation looks so much better than in Unity.

I can't speak for PC, but on consoles, NOTHING currently on the market is touching Horizon Zero Dawn on graphics, lighting, textures, and shadows. I have AC Unity Dead Kings, and it's not even close my friend. In fact, Witcher 3 looks better than Dead Kings. (mah 2 cents).

Shadows are clearly less impressive in Origins though.

That's a bummer. If they finally get the Modern World segment right, then I'll be a Happy Panda. ^_Q

Can you show footage? I haven't seen anything of AC Unity on any platform that looks as impressive as Horizon.

How do you think it Unity looks that good? The only thing that comes to mind in how stunning a game is when it involves AC Unity is the CG trailer of AC Syndicate (because that game was running clearly on the same game engine, the same bugs present suggested so anyway). And I'll get to what I am talking about now.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WTBbwgsyxvg
The only thing I have to take away from this CG trailer is, wow, The Order 1886 looks like this ingame/inengine pretty much, even the scene in the bar.

At NO point in any footage of AC Unity or Syndicate's ingame does it look anything like "you are playing a CG production" lol (especially with them broken ass animations, you aren't either), even maxed out on PC.
I'd love to see some of this footage you are talking about because I'm just not seeing it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p5pbfhaiXVg and a Youtube video is normally good enough to show real life stuff so you'd think at game at CG level would be easy to make out if it were the case.

Horizon Zero Dawn DID indeed "reach that level of real time CG movie but no, not "at pseudo 2160p", it did it at 1080p on a standard PS4. http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=13528...

Remember, all captured from real, actual gameplay. And CG movies were around long before 1080p resolution so I don't know why CG being at 4K is supposed to matter.

Unity > Generic Dawn: Vantage Point

Okay...this looks superb graphically. Hmm, I will have to keep my eyes on it.

On par with Horizon Zero Dawn? Wow thats seriously impressive for a multiplat title if true.

Were the videos recorded at 4k mode and downsampled?
Commented on 2017-10-25 09:39:34 In reply to Xoar
Not in every aspect, but the game wowed me just as much as Horizon, which says a lot. It is indeed quite an achievement for a multiplayer title.

The game was running in 4k in all videos but the 1080p FPS analysis video.

Thanks for the reply.

I will be looking even more forward to playing AC:Origins when it launches then. I've been missing Assassin's Creed very badly, love the parkour movement set and the historical time periods. Hopefully AC:Origins delivers!

Also, if you have around 5-10 hours free and are interested, I would definitely recommend AC:Unity's Dead Kings at 4k - even if it's at 30fps - just so you can see how gorgeous it looks.

Is it any good? I got burnt out on Assasins Creed games and have not touched one in about 3 or 4 years was think of picking this up.

Can't say before the end of the embargo tomorrow.
Commented on 2017-10-26 14:00:33
Hmmm...this looks visually stunning, quite the achievement. No doubt in my mind that this surpasses Unity quite handily.

Uncharted DLC is graphically better than Horizon. I can not believe how good it looks.

It looks nice, but Horizon blows it out with textures, lighting, and greenery. My psn is loakum. I'll be more than happy to compare pics of the two games. :)

    rayy Nobody is saying to not condemned EA for what they did. Yeah they did really bad, and they should get punish by it. They are getting punish by the market already. (14 Hours ago)
  • rayy
    rayy Cosmetic lootboxes on overwatch doesnt affect the gameplay at all, and if you play the game enough you get those stuff for free anyways. You really dont have to grind that much tbh. (14 Hours ago)
