Ubisoft: Unity Takes "Full Advantage" Of Next-Gen Power
Another developer who claims to be pushing the next-gen consoles to the limit.
Not long after Sledgehammer Games said Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare really embraced the power of the new systems, Ubisoft says the latest Assassin's Creed will take "full advantage" of the power of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Of course, that doesn't specifically mean they're utilizing 100 percent of each system's available power. But it's worth noting that we're not used to hearing similar statements so early in a new console generation. As Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot said at the Ubiblog:
"It's a game that takes full advantage of the new gen. It's really a good demonstration of what those machines can do. And people are amazed. They didn't expect those machines to deliver that level of graphics and animation quality, the depth of the number of people that can move in the environment, and so on. It's helping the brand to have a new beginning with totally different possibilities."
We've also heard from CD Projekt Red on the subject of harnessing next-gen power; The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt supposedly uses most of the available horsepower in each of the new consoles. Maybe this doesn't bode well, though. We've been saying for a while that with the increased accessibility comes - by default - less of a technical leap as the years go on.
