Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, Ubisoft’s pirate adventure is out tomorrow for console peons; the master race and those waiting for next-gen will have to wait nearly a month to get their pirate action on. That wait might be worth it though – if you happen to run an Nvidia system.
We’ve already told you that Ubisoft has inked a deal to push more graphical bells and whistles on Nvidia systems, and now they’re showing it off.
If you’ll be playing the game on a green machine, you’ll get access to soft and realistic shadows with sexy ambient occlusion, Godrays for brilliant moon and sun illumination and temporal anti-aliasing so things won’t be as jaggy when your character moves about. It’s a collection of small, but neat graphical features that’ll give Nvidia systems a graphical edge.
So much for all that talk of everything next-gen being AMD optimised, eh?
