Someone who managed to get hold of an early PlayStation 4 copy of Assassin’s Creed: Unity has uploaded screenshots to the web, and they spell anything but next-gen.
Whereas Ubisoft was pretty excited about their new installment ‘jumping’ into a new age, the studio was flagged down in a growing controversy of it running both the console versions at 900p to escape any sort of resolution-gate debates.
Usually, developers push each platform to its limits to ensure utilization of whatever resources available. In the past, we’ve seen many developers being able to run their games at 1080p on the PlayStation 4 while the Xbox One has mostly remained locked at 900p.
That, however, was not the case with Assassin’s Creed: Unity where the developer said that it was just not possible. The Internet detective though did not agree.
Still, with the game’s release in a few days there was hope that in the growing criticisms, someone at Ubisoft could have decided to turn around and enable the PS4 version to run at native 1080p. The screenshots uploaded on the web today beg to differ.
They confirm that the PS4 version will be running at 900p, much like the Xbox One. You can head over to GearNuke and browse through the shots at hand.
Will you still be purchasing the game or is playing Assassin’s Creed: Unity on 900p beneath you?
