AC Unity Scope "Insane," But Frame Rate Might Be An Issue

Just bear in mind that the version this gamer played wasn't final. That's probably important to remember.

It seems NeoGAF member Jindrax got a chance to play the Xbox One version of Assassin's Creed Unity at FACTS 2014 in Belgium, and he shared his experience with the community.

While the Ubisoft representative kept pointing out that the version in question wasn't final, Jindrax couldn't help but be disappointed in the frame rate dips:

"But the game did dip under 30 fps frequently :S. Like every time I entered or exited combat, if I did some crazy free running stuff. But yeah, it wasn’t the final version, the ubisoft guy kept pointing that out."

However, he added that it "didn't take away from the experience" and "the scope of this game is insane." While the game in question is due out in just a few weeks, it's pretty common to find older builds of the game floating around at various industry events. Let's just hope that when Unity ships, the frame rate dips will be minimal.

PS4 downgrade confirmed. ;)

I am curious to see how the PS4 version is going to run because my sons and I are excited about this game.

So then the PS4 version will run just fine since it was downgraded because of the weaker X1. I already have it preordered and cannot wait! My nephew just got a PS4 and is getting ACU! It's going to be fun playing this in COOP!

For sure! Playing co-op in Assassin's Creed is something my sons and I have been wanting to do for a long time.

Between AC: Unity and Destiny, co-op gaming is looking great!

For a veteran developer like Ubisoft, making a game run at 900p and a steady 30fps should be a non-issue.

This is very disappointing to hear...

People put way too much stock in frame rate these days, there are people who will completely write off a game because it won't reach 60fps. Plus this is isn't the final build and the guy did say that it didn't take away from the experience.

Honestly, wouldn't you rather a game that had an insane scope and great gameplay (which we don't know yet) and have a slightly lower resolution and a frame rate that possibly dips from time to time but doesn't really take away from the experience than a generic game that has a solid 1080p/60fps? Obviously both would be ideal but an ambitious and fun game should be more important than frame rate and resolution.

No, you can feel when the framerate drops. The framerate was pretty bad in ac3 and ac4. I do not want a lower resolution and framerate that drops from time to time. Play a fighting game with variable framerate and you would hate. It should be locked and not drop whatsoever. If their is controller input lag then blame the bad framerate.

Considering that ubisoft is a big developer they should have had this fixed from the get go. They had 4 yrs to make this game. If the full game chugs as bad as ac3 and ac4 I am definitely done purchasing their games completely.

You know what I never think about when I'm waiting for a game to come out?

Two things, frame rate and resolution.


I miss when people just got excited about games because they're fun to play.

Well I'm sorry if it's too much to expect from this generation AT LEAST smooth 30 fps... This should be a standard now.
I won't even bother talking about AA.
