Here’s a new trailer for Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag from Nvidia, showing off just how extra pretty it will look if you have a Geforce GPU because, as you may remember, Nvidia and Ubisoft are having a scandalous affair.

The PC version of Assassin’s Creed 4 drops a few weeks after the current-gen console versions; hold tight and grit your teeth until November 22 to see the game at its shiny, next-gen best on your gaming rig now that developers are finally free to take better advantage of its grunt.

hnnng, looks so good. Might be the first AC I buy in a while.

 

subw00fer,

2 and brotherhood were decent. The first one was a tech demo and the rest just got bogged down in far too much micro.

 

im wondering if the the phsics on the plants will be Nvidia only… watching the lets play vids fromt he xbox360 I don’t see the plants moving… and yet on the PC gameplays displayed the plants move when you move through them.

Am really getting sick anf tired of features being exclusive to a brand.

 

lexxbomb,

its probably only going to get worse. money = god.

 

lexxbomb,

You’re probably overreacting. My guess is that the 360/PS3 aren’t powerful enough to have those effects so the X1/PS4 as well as PC regardless of the hardware would all get the effects.

On the video the only effect I noticed was the shadows one. :S Also the TXAA one but i’d never use it given the performance hit and how blurry it makes the scene.

 

I’ve never had a performance hit with TXAA, and the blurry-ness I’ve only seem from the driver turned on TXAA, when it’s built into the game it seems to have a higher quality.

 

Eventually people will need to run a PC with both an Nvidia and AMD card in SL-Crossfire

 

nirvesta,
well given that in the mobile sphere there is a legal precedant that the owners of patents must allow other manufactures to use their patents (but pay a fair price for the ability to) – ie as a patent owner you cannot refuse to let someone use your patent… This is all about creating Standization… The PC hardware companies need to follow suit…

 

Wouldn’t that end up more like sticking two opposing groups of Football Hooligans in the same room after a massive drinking session…

Team Green and Team Red working together? The fanboi’s would commit suicide…

 

yay for the death of fanboyism

Ditto. If I’m going to get locked in to a particular hardware brand, I may as well play on consoles.

PC gaming’s strength is partly from its flexibility – if AMD releases a better card, chuck your nvidia one and vice versa. These exclusives reduce that benefit and attempt to lock people in.

 

Just what we need more proprietary non-sensical rubbish to slow the industry down.
