  • 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.

  • Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag Runs At 900p on PS4, Patch Will Add Full 1080p Native Support

    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.

    Assassin's Creed IV: Black FlagGary 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.
