Ubisoft has said that the PlayStation 4 version of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag will ‘look so much better’ than its current-generation counterpart.
Associate producer Sylvain Trottier told the EU PlayStation Blog that the PS4’s added technical prowess allows the studio to push the visuals of Black Flag beyond the threshold of current machines.
"The first thing which is going to change drastically is the graphics because we think that visually - with the stronger GPU, stronger CPU, a lot of RAM - we are going to be able to exploit this console and push the bar visually," he said.
"It's a lot more intuitive for engineers, it has a lot more compute shaders that we add and put them on the PS4 . And all these new techs that we are pushing are natively fitting in the PS4.
"All the little details that you cannot right now put on the current generation consoles because the console is running at 100 per cent right now, so you cannot add all these little details that are going to make the game even more beautiful, more immersive."
In a nutshell, the stabby sequel will “look so much better on PS4,” said Trottier.
Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is scheduled to ship on PS3, Xbox 360, PC, and Wii U in late October in the U.S. and early November in Europe. The PS4 version will arrive alongside the system’s launch this holiday season.
