Ubisofts Alex Hutchingson has discussed in depth on the latest Major Nelson Podcast about the graphical differences Far Cry 4 will feature between the past generation, current generation and PC platforms.
Hutchinson has mentioned that in regards to Far Cry 4 on the PS4 and Xbox One, the studio was able to get it running at ultra high PC quality immediately.
Hutchingson goes further to explain that Ubisoft wants the experience to be the same across all platforms. This news has prompted concerns within the PC community with many fearing a similar situation will occur to the recent disappointment experienced with Ubisoft’s latest hit title “Watch Dogs” where graphical potential of the PC game was reduced from the glamorous pre-sale promotional footage which was shown at the 2012 E3.
Although there is a difference this time. The difference is that there was no glamorous footage to stir up PC gamers expectations. What we saw at this years E3 is supposedly what will be released for PC, PS4 and the Xbox One universally minus slight graphical tweaks between the three and graphics controls for PC.
There is also debate about whether this is a marketing strategy by Ubisoft to help promote sales of the new consoles as it gives console gamers a reason not to consider PC. After all, if the consoles run it the same as the PC, why would you need to use a PC?
Make what you will of this news, after all there’s a lot of speculation. Overall It will be interesting to see how Far Cry 4 pans out.
