Far Cry 4, The Division & AC: Unity will look better on PC thanks to Nvidia deal

Thursday, 5 June 2014 11:26 GMT By Dave Cook

Ubisoft and Nvidia have announced an extension of their Gameworks partnership, which will see the publisher’s titles – such as Far Cry 4, Tom Clancy’s The Division and Assassin’s Creed: Unity benefit from a range of cutting-edge tech and tools.

Just last week, Nvidia fired back at AMD after it accused the graphics manufacturer of purposely fixing it so Gameworks-enabled titles like Watch Dogs would be crippled on AMD cards.

Nvidia countered by saying that while these Gameworks deals do see its people stationed within studios like Ubisoft Montreal to assist with optimisation, it would not block out rival card manufacturers from enhancing their own experiences.

Now, in a press release sent to VG247, Nvidia announced that it will partner with Ubisoft on the PC editions of Assassin’s Creed Unity, Far Cry 4, The Crew and Tom Clancy’s The Division, and that the games will benefit from TXAA antialiasing, which it says, “provides Hollywood-levels of smooth animation”, along with soft shadows, HBAO+ (horizon-based ambient occlusion), advanced DX11 tessellation, and NVIDIA PhysX technology.

“Working with Nvidia has enabled us to bring an enhanced gameplay experience to our PC players,” said Geoffroy Sardin, senior vice president of sales and marketing, Ubisoft. “We look forward to continuing our partnership with Nvidia on our biggest upcoming titles.”

Previous Ubisoft games developed under Nvidia partnership include Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Blacklist, Assassins Creed IV: Black Flag and Watch Dogs.

“We’re excited to continue our long-term partnership with Ubisoft in bringing our latest PC technology to their games”, said Tony Tamasi, senior vice president of Content & Technology at Nvidia. “Through GameWorks, we have been able to add unique visual and gameplay innovations to deliver amazing experiences for these stellar Ubisoft games. I can’t wait to play them myself.”

    I will just stick to the console version. Ubisoft blows with the PC ports. Watch Dogs and Assassin Creed 4 are a good example of that.

    @undermyrules – So that’s still $250-$300… So $1000 + $250. Cool. Next Gen console + 27″ TV/Monitor would cost $750. That’s $500 saving, and you wouldn’t need to upgrade it every year for a new graphics card or processor, it would last 10 years if the last gen is anything to go by.

    Don;t get me wrong, I can see the draw to PC gaming, but I’m being a twat to you because you put “#rekt” under your post, as if it was better, when it isn’t, it is only on par. Its all about trade-offs.

    @jomac3db
    Sorry to break that to you, but a gaming PC hardly costs 1000$. When you factor-in game prices, the PC is more cost-effective anyway. It never did cost more to be on par with consoles except for the start of the last generation.

    PC gaming is not about better looks of the game. It’s about choice:
    * extensive control options,
    * games of all genres are available,
    * portability (most modern laptops can handle modern games in 720p),
    * playing on a monitor or a big screen TV,
    * modding galore,
    * cheap digital games from different stores,
    * plethora of free-to-play titles.

    If you want to shuffle-feed Sony and Microsoft with your hard-earned money, by all means, choose to forfeit choice. PC gamers are, first and foremost, pro-choice.

    As a member of Team Red, I’m deeply saddened the nVidia PR calls vendor lock-in an improvement in PC gaming.

    @3

    Well, you’re being a bit of an imbecile, here. Please look up what ‘open platform’ means, first, and then understand. An ‘open platform’ means that anyone can make anything for it. Don’t like what nVidia is doing? Buy an AMD card! The games will still run and AMD will still optimise them regardless of this marketing propaganda. It may take them a patch longer to do it, but due to it being an open platform, which anyone can develop for, there are no barriers between AMD and optimisation.

    The only barriers that could occur is if a software developer purposefully locks someone out, but then they’re just being dicks and abusing the free market. In which case, you should simply vote with your wallet and not buy what they’re selling. That’s the boon of an open platform, you’re free to not buy what you don’t want to buy. If you disagree with Microsoft but want to play Xbox One games, you have to own an XBox. If you disagree with nVidia but want to play PC games, you still can, due to the very merit of it being an open platform.

    Please educate yourself and think before you speak, you’re an embarrassment to yourself and, by extension, to anyone who considers themselves either a gamer or a PC owner. If you don’t know what a word or phrase means, don’t use it. It irritates me no end to see people flashing their naked stupidity at me, I don’t want that.

    And yet so many people do it. I’m reminded of the vomit-worthy ‘narcissism’ debacle where someone couldn’t tell the difference between that and egotism, and didn’t understand that it was an extroverted thing. An introverted narcissist is a contradiction of terms. If one has any education in psychology, that’s a painfully clueless thing to say. Though most people don’t, and instead of keeping their idiocy to themselves, they put it on display.

    So, no, nVidia doing this doesn’t mean that the PC isn’t an open platform. Instead, nVidia doing this just means that they’re overly capitalistic jerks. It doesn’t stop AMD hardware from running the games, or AMD from optimising for the games. It just may take them a little longer.

    Besides, I’ve had plenty of games with ‘Optimised for [graphics card I don't have]‘ on the start up screens, and I’ve never experienced any real issues with them. Sleeping Dogs was optimised for AMD, yet it ran perfectly on my nVidia card at the time. And my next build is going to be AMD, probably, and I’m going to be seeing a lot of nVidia logos. It never really changes anything, it just means that, oh no, it might have the occasional 5FPS slowdown until it’s fixed.

    Think of it this way, if you are capable of such thought — a company selling a game doesn’t want to sell a game that half of their consumers aren’t going to be able to play. That’s been tried, and it’s lead to so much bad PR and lost sales that they know to behave about this by now.

    In that noggin of yours rests a brain, I’d like to not have to think for you. Use your own, instead of parasitically leeching off of mine. You’d make me a much happier person.

    @2

    It’s more like $500-800 (you don’t even need a monitor, you can just hook it up to your TV). And then you have to consider that you’re getting a 45-90 per cent discount on every game. (Check out Nuuvem.com.br if you don’t believe me.) Over the course of a matter of months, you’ll recoup the money spent on a computer and make a profit.

    Consoles have a ‘hidden in plain sight’ tax in the form of royalties. And the majority seem to be blissfully ignorant of something I’d hopefully believe that people would not only be cognizant of, but would find obvious.

    The cost of your console doesn’t end at the initial purchase — it goes on, and on, and on. Each game you buy adds to your console’s cost. After a few years, you’ve probably paid $5,000 for your console, and that’s assuming you haven’t had a hardware failure and had to buy another console.

    It doesn’t sound like such a good deal to me, honestly. It’d be cheaper to take a loan out for a PC, and you’d have a machine that can do so much more, due to it being an open platform. You could even learn how to be your own games, you could be creative and try some art, and you can play a huge variety of games, you can use mods, you’ve access to a massive back catalogue of games which is unrivalled on any other system, there’s a huge gumut of good free games on offer (the PC is where those tend to be born), and so on.

    As such… I feel like I made the right choice. I’m just a lowly PC peasant, so what do I know? But I feel like I’m getting good value for money, even if I don’t have thousands to spend on a luxury console.

    @5

    Two problems with that, my fellow sassy commenter.

    1.) Monitors, these days generally have a much, much higher quality standard than televisions do. The only point against them (versus televisions) is that due to the quality, to get the same size monitor as a TV you have to pay a bit more than for a TV (you get what you pay for). As such, I know of quite a few nerdy friends of mine who’ve simply replaced their television with a giant computer monitor. I could go on and note how televisions are running on antiquated technology by comparison, too, but there’s no point in kicking someone when they’re down!

    2.) You can hook a computer up to a TV with great ease. All you need is a mind, hands, and a HDMI cable. If you have all three of these things, you’d find the task quite simple!

    See, to use that kind of sass, there has to be an element of truth to what you’re saying. :P Your sass is grossly outdated!

    @7

    It could just be that Ubisoft games stink. Even objectively, I can’t remember the last game they made. Assassin’s Creed has turned into yearly churned out drek that has absolutely no value beyond rabid herdies who love their brands, and Watch_Dogs is really disappointing as a game, as a faux hacking toy, and as an open world. (Now, I find most open worlds disappointing, but I’ve actually read that a lot of people agree with me on this.)

    @8

    Unless you hook it up to a TV, you know? Oh, and ‘yearly updating of hardware’ hasn’t happened in almost a decade, now. Where have you been living, under a rock? Your information is grossly antiquated, and once again you’re flashing your stupidity at me without nary a care for your dignity. If you’re ignorant of the topic you’re talking about, don’t talk at all.

    I’m not making you look like an idiot, here. You are being an idiot, you don’t need any help. Do some research (as I love to do), then come back and talk. Otherwise you’re no different than Rush Limbaugh or other talking heads. I’ve got you pinned as a low IQ, right-wing extrovert right now, and I’d be willing to bet money on just how right I am. I’m that sure.

    Just… stop talking. Research. Think. Research. Think. THEN talk. At that point I might actually have respect for you, rather than thinking of you as being less intelligent than a single-celled organism.

    Sigh.

    It’s people like you that serve to convince me that all of my gut feelings about humanity are right, on a daily basis. You have more intelligent people, those who’re of the IN** crowd or those enough like them, then you have blistering idiots (the ES** crowd, or those enough like them).

    And it’s worse because you have arrogance, hubris, and a superiority complex. You believe that you’re better than other people because you bought a branded luxury item to sit under your television. You feel that XBOX or SONY is life-affirming, that you somehow have a valid place in your herd for owning something with XBOX or SONY on it.

    Whereas I, as a PC user, couldn’t give two shits about the names on my hardware.

    If you want to be treated like a human being. Act like one. I don’t have high standards for what I consider a human being to be: Think, research, consider research, consider that the people you’re talking to might be infinitely smarter than you are, think more, then talk. If it’s something you’re passionate about, and you know your stuff, speak confidently. If it’s something you know nothing about? ASK QUESTIONS.

    Augh. We need to put you back in a nursery to teach you the basics of being a human.

    There’s nothing I find more offensive than a person flashing their stupidity at me with no regard to their own dignity. No personal pride. And it’s even worse when those people like violent things (as I’m sure you do). I find your kind of person repugnant.

    And I’m sure in your head you’re still thinking of yourself as better than I am, and that’s fine. But it’s just horrendously ironic that PC owners usually get labelled with that shit, when it’s people like you who actually perpetrate it.

    @13

    You’re expecting intelligence, insight, introspection, and the ability to consider new data from an extrovert who values the herd and the brand over all else. Don’t. Just don’t. It’s not worth it. It’ll ruin you. I tried that for the longest time until…

    I just gave up.

    Oh no. It’s just occurred to me how true the Borg analogy actually is.

    You can’t reason with the Borg.

    The Borg are a herd/hive-like construct which eschews individuality for collectivity, making a rather perfidious claim to perfection. When I think of words to describe the Borg, perfect isn’t one of them. They have no capability for investigation, research, tactics, or anything of the mind — they just brute-force their way through everything. Just mass produce more cubes, throw them in there, that’s Borg tactics.

    The queen represents the brand, all hail the queen, each herd has their own brand or brands that serve as the queens of their hive. They support and follow their queens with an almost consciousless submissive fealty, never veering from what they’ve been programmed to believe. If a drone is presented with new data which contradicts the information given by the queen, the drone dismisses this data as irrelevant. Intelligence, itself, seems to be very irrelevant.

    I’ve pointed out that the Borg in Voyager were a very clever attempt to portray extroverts in a negative light, and it becomes more true the more I think of it. And, of course, along with the brand you have celebrity, which is also a representation of the queen — brand and celebrity serve much the same purpose, for the drones to gather around and pledge their undying, overzealous troth to. Yea, for the brand is truth. Yea, for the celebrity is truth.

    Anyone displaying individuality, or any other collectives with different queens must be attacked and destroyed. One’s own collective is the most perfect, the most pure, the only true collective. So you have Sony vs XBox fans for collective vs collective, or console fans vs innocent passers-by (PC owners) for the collective versus the individuals. Of course, the individuals must be assimilated! Right? Resistance is futile.

    Well, the herd doesn’t have nano-tubules, but they do have propaganda! They can repeat their belief that consoles are superior over and over. And they can try and undermine the individual by attributing labels like ‘Master Race’ and trying to make them look like a monster, all social engineering to ‘help’ them join the herd. It’s a commonly understood thing, as missionaries have been doing it for centuries.

    They also try to undermine individual ideas with collective ones. However, the Borg are ultimately stupid, so they attempt brute force by having a lot of people saying the same thing, as opposed to one person saying something intelligent. So, you have a stupid drone trying to undermine the individual ideology of ‘openness’ (such as open platforms), but they’re making fallacious arguments, riddled with holes. Other drones jump into the fray to further attack and undermine. Brute-force assimilation is underway.

    See, I like the PC due to it being an ‘open platform,’ rather than it being a ‘SONY’ or a ‘MICROSOFT.’ This is something that the drones can’t understand, so their arguments against it have to be stupid and clueless, and they’ll just keep brute-forcing in the hopes that something will stick, to prove that the brand is superior to the ideology, that the queen is superior to the individual.

    The Borg are also incapable of forming their own individual opinions, everything they have is stolen, so if you present them with evidence that their views are incorrect, they’ll just keep spamming those faux opinions with minor differences. Other drones will jump into the fray and use these thieved assets to help with the assimilation process. Goodness knows I’ve been ganged up on by drones who have absolutely no idea what they’re talking about — and you just can’t reason with them. They are Borg. They are collective. And to be collective is to be dumb.

    So that’s how it goes, that continuing fight. Individuals (PC owners) have ideologies and opinions. The Borg have queens and assimilation.

    You know, sure, I may be of the Master Race, but at least I’m not some idiot drone.

    No Gods, No Masters.” — That applies to me.

    So go lick at the heels of your respective brands. :P I’ll be over here, not doing that.

    But I do have issues with calling names on people or commenters, even if you believe you are right, thats not the way of treating people, even to the ones who do really deserve it, that diminish the value of your opinions/Believes.

    This i say it with a lot of respect to you, and because i believe you are better than that. And because i do really want to see your opinion without insults, dont take this an attack, just a recomendation , so you can improve as a person, and for a healthy discussion here.

    If people are distressed by their carelessly snide remarks being noticed by others, perhaps they should do a better job of hiding them behind their veneer of civility.

    I am not responsible for things said by others, no matter how eager their pals are to suggest otherwise.

    @Manu:

    please don´t make the same mistakes than me. don´t explain yourself. it will only make it worse. don´t exhaust yourself. not worth it.

    e-mail pat instead.

    you wont ever change joes behaviour. it is pathological.
    you wont find empathy or good will in any of his posts and you never will.
    you will never hear an apology. it is just impossible.
    he is not able to resolve conflicts.

    he must finally get another ban. that´s the only way. for his own health and the health of this community.

    @Joe Musashi iam not distressed, dont dodge the issue at hand, again demostrate i had insulted, labeled, mocked peoples ideas, in this site in the same way i have been treated, in order to sustain iam wearing masks, being hypocrite here.

    That Will be the only way the comment made on the selected quote has a reason to exist. Otherwise is just you identifying yourself on that quote, giving the notion you are aware that you do deserve insults.

    @Joe Musashi, sorry for that, silly me , is just that not providing demostrations when you accused me of wearing masks, your words, not mine, and for the vagueness of the respond, i thought it was your style for taking it back, due your firm apprehension for evidence and the lack of one, one step forward one backwards i suppose.

    None of that churlishness actually excuses you for putting words into someone’s mouth so that you can dispute them. Which you’re continuing to do, incidentally.

    If someone took issue with a behaviour and then conducted that behaviour themselves, that would make that person a hypocrite. Referring to that person as a hypocrite is entirely apt.

    If said person is unhappy or distressed by such observations, they would do well to cease the behaviour that causes them.

    Actions speak louder than words.

    @The Wulf

    Ough! Man you have some serious problems, go consult a medic or something!

    What I was trying to say is that despite PC being an open platform there are always companies like Nvidia who want to “reform” the PC gaming scene according to their likings and their agenda and most of the time in a non-consumer friendly way.

    Sure, you can always ignore Nvidia and go for AMD but there have been numerous times that ATI card got the shaft compared to Nvidia’s ones.

    And by the way, go fuck yourself you fucking egomaniac and egocentric prick! First and foremost you should be “sick of people” like yourself, as the description you made (for me in this case) fits like a glove for you.

    Keep beating that drum, you are the one and only true human being worthy of everything on this planer, the chosen one. Actually fuck, I’m not going to waste my time on you.

    I made A comnent here, not attacking anyone, you interpreted at your leasure, you again jump to insult me saying my mask almost wear off, you are again putting words and interpretations first, you were the first doing those again. You are against not evidence to sustain a point, opinion, believe, but you not provide it neither, you Dont follow the measaure you establish to others.
    Yes You made only one line , sadly Almost all the time i comment, there are a lot of threads recently.
