Ubisoft Claims Assassins Creed Unity Has A World More Immersive And Dynamic Than Any Before It

Written by Jon Sutton on 23 October 2014 at 17:32

Hot off the back of the absolutely ridiculous rumoured Assassin’s Creed Unity system requirements revealed today, Ubisoft has launched a new trailer looking into the Parisian adventure’s dynamic open-world. Building on the foundations laid down by Assassin's Creed and Watch Dogs, Ubisoft claim that AC Unity will deliver a truly systemic city unlike no other.

Assassin's Creed unity's creative director Alex Amancio is on hand to take us through this special feature trailer, which takes a look at how the side content has been revamped over previous outings to deliver a far more immersive experience, whether it's getting involved in murder mysteries, treasure hunts, or of course the co-operative heist missions. On early impressions it looks like Ubisoft might be making good on its promise to overcome repetitive filler content with these diverse new missions. [More]

Crowd-funded MMORPG Shroud of the Avatar: Forsaken Virtues is scheduled for a release on Steam Early Access on November 24th.

Nvidia GeForce 344.48 Drivers Released With DSR Support For Kepler And Fermi GPUs

Written by Jon Sutton on 23 October 2014 at 14:04

Nvidia has announced that its new Dynamic Super Resolution (DSR) scaling setting introduced with its GeForce GTX 900 series of graphics cards will now work with GeForce GTX 500, 600, and 700 series GPUs, provided they're powerful enough. The support comes bundled in with the latest Nvidia GeForce 344.48 drivers, meaning Kepler and Fermi desktop GPUs can now get in on the action.

Dynamic Super Resolution is a new brute-force technique that runs a game at a higher resolution, up to 4K, before downsampling it to fit a 1920 x 1080p display to improve the image quality. It was announced as a built-in feature for Maxwell GPUs but is now opening up to the rest of Nvidia’s range. It’s not the only update in these new GeForce 344.48 drivers of course, which also bring SLI and performance improvements to some of this month’s biggest titles, including Lords of the Fallen, Elite: Dangerous and Civilization: Beyond Earth.

Written by Jon Sutton on 23 October 2014 at 10:11

Ubisoft has been pretty busy in the last few months crowing about Assassin's Creed Unity, claiming that the next outing in its bestselling globetrotting, time-travelling, memory invading series will be the moment that the next-generation truly arrives. Promising a near 1:1 scale recreation of 18th century Paris, complete with thousands of citizens on screen at any one time, Assassin's Creed Unity promises to be the biggest graphical leap yet in the series' history.

With that in mind, Intra Games, the Korean distributor for Ubisoft in the region, has revealed what are supposedly the Assassin's Creed Unity system requirements. Bear in mind that there has been no official word from Ubisoft yet on whether these system requirements for AC: Unity are indeed correct, UPDATE: These are now confirmed as official system requirements for AC Unity!

Written by Jon Sutton on 22 October 2014 at 17:30

Tom Clancy’s The Division has been on the backburner in recent months as Ubisoft hypes Assassin’s Creed Unity, Far Cry 4, and The Crew to hell and back. Despite this it’s still one of the most anticipated games in the world, despite the relatively few details we’ve received on it so far.

Ubisoft outfit Massive Entertainment is helming the project, and The Division’s brand art director Rodrigo Cortes has been explaining during a recent interview how the post-apocalyptic shooter will in fact be a proper RPG, including loot, grinding, and levelling up in a devastated real-world New York.

New FIFA 15 Patch Should Fix Stuttering Issues On PC And PlayStation 4

Written by Jonnie on 22 October 2014 at 16:30

EA has released the second patch for FIFA 15 for the PC and PlayStation 4 versions of the game. The Xbox One patch is set to follow soon. Among several problems that the patch will rectify will be an end to stuttering gameplay that some PS4 players have reported, along with improvements to the difficulty settings.

Players on the PlayStation 4 version of the game will be especially pleased to hear of the new update. The stuttering problem has occurred when the PS4 is connected to the internet and affects gameplay both on and offline, rendering the game pretty much unplayable at times. Up until now some players have had to disable UPnP on their routers to get the game running smoothly, but this latest update should get things back on track. [More]
