Watch Dogs On PS4: Overall, A More Realistic Experience
It's one of several "cross-generation" titles on tap for later this year, and it's also one of the most anticipated games on the immediate horizon.
Now, in a recent GamesTM interview with Watch Dogs creative director Jonathan Morin (as cited by Gaming Everything), we have some details concerning the upgrades we'll find in the PlayStation 4 version. As you might've anticipated, this involves graphics and AI. Said Morin:
"When the PS4 showed up it did bring new possibilities to improve graphics and every AI systems we have. But in the same way we did for four years already, we will continue to look beyond what is possible to achieve in order to bring this little something extra out there for players to enjoy. So expect more AI behaviors, more realistic consequences to your actions and an overall improvement in visuals realization. Our team has been working on this very complex ecosystem for more than four years now; this is what is required to build such an intricate set of AI systems."
Morin added that the PS4 certainly brings better processing power and more memory to the table. But that's not actually the biggest improvement-
"What the new machine brings is new processing power and memory to run these things, but the biggest investment is always the time and the quality of the resources required to pull it off. So not only does the next generation bring more possibilities, but it also brings new challenges that we believe are extremely exciting from both a player’s and a developer’s perspective."
Watch Dogs might be downright mind-blowing on the PS4. I wonder if this is incentive enough to spring for Sony's new machine; this, and the knowledge that other cross-generation games will benefit in the same way. As we've said before, it could be third-party blockbusters and not exclusives that fuel early sales of the new PlayStation.
