Watch_Dogs’ graphical quality has been called into question recently with some trailers of the upcoming open-world game not living up to the reveal trailer at E3 2012. Ubisoft’s official reasoning was that it was showing off the PlayStation 4 version, so naturally some hits are to be expected.
To further clear the air, Ubisoft has released a trailer of the PC version, which indeed looks to have the graphical fidelity of the best of what we’ve seen so far. Combining several of NVIDIA’s latest technologies, Watch_Dogs has some of the most realistic and dramatic lighting effects and anti-alias techniques ever seen in a game.
“By working with NVIDIA we really want to make sure PC gamers will be able to enjoy and explore the most realistic and visually stunning world environment ever created,” says Lead Engineer Paul Vlasie in the video, “the Windy City like you’ve never seen it before.”
What do you think? Are you now convinced that the graphics have not been downgraded? Are you going to be playing this game on the PC or a next-gen console now that Ubisoft has confirmed that the later versions are taking a hit?
Watch_Dogs is being released for the PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One on May 27. A Wii U version is also in the works, and is due sometime this fall.
