Today, Ubisoft released a title update patch for the PlayStation 4 version of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag that brings the game’s resolution from 900p to full high-definition 1080p, as well as a new anti-aliasing technique.
The game’s development team originally released the game at 900p to keep the framerate consistent at 30 frames per second. However, they went the extra mile and used the time after launch to work on this latest update.
“The most important part of this title update is not necessarily 1080p native resolution,” explained Associate Producer Sylvain Trottier. “It’s the fact that even when we were done with the project, even when we were finished with the certification and everything else, even when most of the engineers had started to work on other projects – like we always do at Ubisoft – some of my engineers continued to work on Black Flag and they even developed a brand-new anti-aliasing technique.”
Anti-aliasing is used to smooth out jagged edges of polygons in computer-generated graphics.
