Ubisoft's latest installment in Assassin's Creed series, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is one of the best looking game and has received praises for this from both critics and fans.
Now, according to Reddit user "PcChip", Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag can run at 120 FPS. According to PcChip, to achieve 120 FPS for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, all players need to do is Turn OFF 3D while using Nvidia's 3DVision.
This will make Assassin's Creed IV run super smooth, and when he takes OFF his glasses everything goes blurry. The reason PcChip unveils for this is that Nvidia uses Active 3D. Read below what exactly PcChip stated:
"When testing out AC4:BF with 3DVision, after I disabled 3D (with CTRL+T), I noticed it was *amazingly* smooth... too smooth...
I took the glassess off my eyes and the familiar double-image blur effect was back (the one that is present by the method of forcing 60fps that the developers chose)
I put the glasses back on... and noticed they were still shuttering even though 3D was disabled, and the blur was GONE!
My fps counter still only shows 60FPS, but that's 60 frames per second, PER EYE.
It's a smooth 120fps!
Of course, there's no way I can say if this will work for you, but it's sure working for me! "
60 FPS for each eye?, Yes and for those who disagree, Nvidia has already announced 3DVision can in fact support 120 FPS on 2D games. We are still putting this in rumor category.
Ubisoft has just released Patch 1.03 for Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag PS4 version. This latest update carries fix for numerous issues related to display and graphical issues.
According to details coming out from gamers on official Ubisoft forum, Patch 1.03 also adds 1080p native resolution support to Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag.
Just before the launch of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, Ubisoft revealed that the game runs at 900p resolution on PS4 and a native 1080p resolution support will be added via patch along with improved anti-aliasing method.
Have you downloaded Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag Patch 1.03 for PS4?, let us know in the comment section below changes you observed.
The back cover art of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag has arrived on internet confirming Impulse Triggers support, 40 GB HDD space requirement and two to four player co-op play over Xbox Live and more.
Take a look at the snapshot of back-cover below. Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is one of the launch title of Xbox One and so will arrive alongside console on November 22 in 13 countries.
Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag on Playstation 4 runs at 900p resolution and title update is needed to enjoy it in full 1080p native resolution, according to details revealed by Ubisoft's Gary Steinman. This title update will be available for download shortly after release of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag.
Gary Steinman said: "Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag on the PlayStation 4 is the first Assassin’s Creed game to be rendered in true native 1080p. In other words, the already gorgeous game will be, well… even more gorgeous when it sets sail on the PS4."
"Players will need to download a title update (available shortly after release) to enjoy the full 1080p native resolution."
Gary Steinman further added that "Even without the title update, the game is undeniably stunning on next-gen consoles"
Associate Producer Sylvain Trottier later added, "If it’s running at 720p vs 1080p, you’re going to notice the difference, by far,"
"But if it’s set at a resolution that’s very close, where most of the pixels are already there in internal processing, most people won’t see any difference."
Whether asked when Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag was ship at 900p in first place?, Gary Steinman: "To meet an essential goal: deliver a visually brilliant game at a steady 30 frames per second (the industry gold standard for open-world games). Finishing the game at 900p gave the development team the extra room in terms of the GPU and CPU usage to ensure the framerate never dips below 30 frames per second. The team then used the time between the ship date and the release to focus on a title update that could deliver native 1080p resolution on the PS4."
Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is already out in Europe alongside PS4, and it will arrive in North America on November 29.
Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag PC version has been leaked on internet, but the interesting part is that Ubisoft has included a Day-One patch update for PC port and details about it are also out.
