  • Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag Can Run At 120 FPS?

    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.

    Assassin's Creed IV: Black FlagThis 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.

    Let us know what you guys think about it.

  • First Footage of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag Running on Xbox One?

    It seems like the first footage of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag running on Xbox One was posted recently by IGN in "Making Assassin's Creed 4: Part 2 - Uncharted Waters" video series.

    Assassin's Creed IV: Black FlagNumerous evidence has been discovered in the video which hints that the game was running on Xbox One. We have listed below few of them (via NeoGaf user SenjutsuSage):

    "You see some mouse prompts in there, like on the map, but the Xbox button mappings are also on the map, and generally all over the game footage in this video, Seeing as how this could be the first time the game is being shown on the Xbox One, and because I don't feel there's anything out of the ordinary about games largely developed on pc, and that aren't finished, being shown capable of also being manipulated by a mouse or keyboard. It's definitely not current gen footage, because most of this looks well beyond current gen.

    Furthermore, some of it does look like they start slipping in some current gen footage here and there. Like at 7:20, I think that's def current gen ps3 footage with playstation button mappings, and then there's parts afterwards that, to me, look quite different visually from some of the earlier footage in the video, but again with xbox button mappings, but which strikes me as current gen 360 footage.

    There's a point in the video where they start talking more specifically about the next gen versions and the enhancements followed by more footage of the game with xbox button mappings with footage that clearly isn't current gen. I expect the Xbox One and PS4 versions will be rather close or dead on to the better looking footage in this video. I don't think all of what's shown in here is next gen, however, but most of it definitely appears to be. Around 7:20 they start to mix it up a bit between next gen and current gen. I only feel that's the case because of what I think are some big visual differences."

    You can take a look at the footage below, share you views with us on it in the comment section below.

  • Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is 60 Times Bigger Than All Previous Game in the Series: Ubisoft

    The next installment in Assassin's Creed franchise, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is SIXTY (60) times bigger than any other games in the franchise history, according to Creative Director Jean Guesdon.

    Assassin's Creed 4: Black FlagIn a recent interview to GameZone, Guesdon said: "Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag’s Caribbean world is massive indeed. If we take absolute numbers, it’s way bigger than any other Assassin’s Creed installment – probably around 60 times bigger, but the ocean helps a lot. In fact, we have roughly the same amount of ground surface, but we made the decision to scatter this land across the entire ocean, which is procedurally generated."

    "This has mainly been made to make sure we were representing the Caribbean in the best possible way. Adventure, exploration, discovering islands and reaching far destinations were core to the experience we wanted to deliver."

    Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is schedule to launch on October 29 for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, Xbox One and PS4 version is yet to be dated.

  • Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag Multiplayer Won't Feature Naval Battles confirms Ubisoft

    The next installment in Assassin's Creed franchise, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag won't feature naval battles (in multiplayer portion), according to Game Designer Tim Browne.

    Assassin's Creed IV Naval BattleIn a recent interview to VG247, Tim Browne said, "You have to take into consideration that it took a very big dedicated team in Singapore about two-and-a-half years to do it for the solo play. In Black Flag it’s even better, but for solo. We’ve looked at it and we’ve considered it. We seriously considered it. We think it would be cool, but at the same time we tried it, and for technical reasons it’s impossible."

    Naval warfare was a popular addition to Assassin's Creed III, so fans of the series may be disappointed to hear this news. However, Tim Browne doesn’t feel that naval multiplayer battles are appropriate for the game:

    "We looked at the DNA of multiplayer, and we thought that ship battles aren’t really being the cool assassin. With multiplayer it’s all about you working either as a team of four players or in free-for-all, where you want to be the best player. It’s not so much about piloting a ship and using cannons to destroy the opponent’s ship"

    The one thing fans will be excited about in Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag is "GameLab" system, it will allow Assassin's Creed community to develop their own multiplayer modes.
