Also worth noting that apparently even setting things to ultra in the menu doesnt always put it at true ultra, you have to edit an xml file.

<quality ResolutionX="XXXX" ResolutionY="XXXX

and

DeferredFxQuality="console"

Changed to: DeferredFxQuality="pc"

I think it's the problem with leaked versions and it may be configured to PC settings already in retail version . Game looks amazing in 'REAL' Ultra settings .

Looks alright for PC.. Nothing amazing

That video was very disappointing.

You really have to find uncompressed vids to do this game justice. Having said that.. it's still was a "bait and switch" move by Ubi. My interest "re-peeked" after seeing the PS4 launch trailer, but I'm still not convince that it's worth $60.

Where is the often talked about PC power?

Which has absolutely nothing to do with how a the game looks maxed out, If Watch Dogs doesnt look good to you maxed out on a PC its because thats how far the devs went with the graphics, it has nothing to do with the power of the PC its running on, PC power is how good a PC will be able to run the game maxed out which will vary depending on PC specs of course, regardless the PC version maxed out will look better than your favorite most powerful console in the world in the history of gaming the PS4 version all in its 900p glory.

Why tell people that? Did you invent PC's? Is it a personal achievement to you that PC's are more powerful than consoles? Just Shat ap ya li'l rascal.

City looks bland and empty like Infamous SS.

Why is it that only rockstar can build a real breathing city?

pretty true. Rockstar are the buisness though. Some of the best devs on earth. It's not all about graphics.

#57 Posted by uninspiredcup (7814 posts) -

Looks good. Gameplay most important aspect though. Hopefully not Assassins Creed non-game.

I've got the game early, here are some of my screenshots:

I have to agree with Wasdie, most screens and videos out there don't really do it justice. It looks great on PC.

#59 Edited by DJ_Headshot (6178 posts) -

Looks pretty nice sure it will look even better in motion maxed out at 60+fps and looks like it could really benefit from sweetfx.

#60 Posted by Kjranu (917 posts) -

It looks like a last-gen game even with all the bells and whistles turned on in Ultra settings. I also don't believe there was a downgrade. Yes, they showed the PC version at E3 while neglected Xbox One and PS4 versions since their kits were not even out at the time. There was no false advertising, when I compare E3 version of Watch Dogs and current version I see very little difference. If there is even one it's barely noticeable. Watch Dogs is what it is, if you like the genre and the setting then you will enjoy the game. If graphics was your only expectation then I'd reckon you'll be very disappointed.

Can you take the coat off? Looks so weird when running around.

#62 Edited by handssss (1821 posts) -

so consensus is this game looks like crap pretty much no matter what during the day, but at night, it looks pretty good even on the current gen systems? (and yes i said current, time to stop calling them next gen for anyone that still might)

I have a nice PC, moderate GTX 680. 16 GB ram. But guess what? I just know that console exclusives will raise the bar in graphics. Because, guess what? PC's don't have 1 fully 8th gen game out there. WD is on PS3/360. Same game but at lower resolutions, textures, and lighting.

Wonder if the game allows you to make it look like an accident. Say when he's crossing the street you could change the lights.

I don't think so, not sure if you can even change your clothes at all. I just got the game and looked around the city for a bit

you can say the same thing to PS4 fan boys with all their this game has a higher resolution than xbox version threads.

#72 Edited by rabakill (583 posts) -

Looks like fun to me. I've played tech demos before, hopefully the game has good pacing and a decent story. Really don't care about graphics as the best graphics often have nothing to do with which game is fun or not.

Nah. With a cow or a lem, it's all petty stuff. With some of these hermits, they define themselves with their rigs and spend their spare time shitting on consoles for being weak. There are a lot of hermits who seem to think they know everything about graphics, programming, optimization, entirely based on their own, or other reddit/pcmasterrace members conjecture. They go as far to say devs are incorrect and they mean something different. They spread misinformation like a disease. If you argue against some of these hermits, no matter how logical, or how much facts you have to back your claim up, if they have made up their mind, you, and everyone else (including developers) are incorrect because it totally circumvents their views. This is ignorance, and if you can't see it, then I don't know where your looking. Hermits are the most obnoxious people on SW without question.

#75 Posted by Snugenz (11815 posts) -

Looks like typical Ubisoft shitty optimization for the PC port.

Uh so, I could care less about exclusives because Guess what? Thats not what the other poster I quoted was talking about and neither was I, and Guess what? Consoles will only raise the bar for console graphics because........ Guess what? Well because these are next gen consoles.

Oh Guess What?

@Wasdie said:

The compression is horrid on those videos.

The game went for a much more "realistic" look and thus it doesn't pop out as beautiful but it's not a bad looking game. I just got new GTX 780 and a 1440p monitor. I'll take some good videos and pictures to show off here when the game comes out. I don't think the game is going to end up looking that bad.

Get a custom BIOS on that 780!! I had mine clocked at 1.4Ghz on a crappy Arctic cooling hybrid and it was STUPID fast... BF4 on Ultra with 4xMSAA locked at 60fps at 2560x1440.

Actually consoles effect PC in a lot of ways considering most games are made with consoles in mind. So guess what? PS4 HAS raised the bar for PC's because now ports won't focus on last gen consoles. So the lowest common denominator is now much higher. Get it?

Nah, thats impossible!!! Were talking about PC here. The fucking PC. Nothing compares to the mighty power of PC. Lol, a fucking 15 year old game on PC is better than anything PS4 will ever be able to do hur durr. And you know why? Coz it's on teh PC u filthy consoel peasentz... and all the rest of it.

The waves in GTA5 looks better though.

C'mon, you gotta agree, especially considering the hardware it's running on. I remember driving towards the beach and being blown away by the water. Fuck. I just dived right in there. Went for a swim. Felt real.

Water splashing against my not-so-hairy chest.

Yeah, I don't have a lot of hair on my body. One day, I will. I'm like the least hairy half-Italian man on the planet. It's not even funny. My chest hair looks like a skinned eagle, spreading its wings.

#85 Edited by I_can_haz (6551 posts) -

I hate to be that guy but Infamous shits all over this game graphics wise. The only thing it has good going for it are the nice water and the higher resolution and 60fps on PC, other than that it looks horribly bland. Ubisoft definitely pulled a bait and switch on this game, looks nothing like the original reveal even on superior PC hardware.

My Infamous screens I took while playing the game, no bullshots or promo shots here...

The graphics of Watch Dogs are even more of a joke when you see the ridiculously high system requirements you need to get it to run smoothly on Ultra settings. It's an unoptimized POS like other Ubi games. I can't wait for some better devs to show the noobs at Ubi how to do a proper 8th gen open world game on PC.

#87 Edited by scottpsfan14 (3736 posts) -

@lostrib: Oh it is. You've seen it more than I have I guess too. (Assuming that's what you're referring to).

Stunning game. It's actually funny how PC doesn't have an open world game that can dethrone ISS. Even ultra WD only has the odd effect here and there that Infamous doesn't. Fact is, the overall look of ISS is better.

@scottpsfan14:

And how many open world PC games have been released on the same time frame as I:SS?

No shit a game that only had to be coded to run on 1 platform looks better than a multiplatform game that's also limited for being on last gen.

Actually, Saints Row 3 has better art direction and is probably more fun.

Great point I made. In the line above.

That isn't so obvious to a lot of people here on SW. They argue their last gen ports are more advanced simply because it's on PC. But what ever. You get the gist.

@scottpsfan14: the forest looks way better than second son and it's an indie game and pc exclusive.

it's a great looking game, but it's different entirely. Uncomparable. Different focus points. Meaning that while the trees and grass look better on the forest, Second Son will have better character animations and particle effects. Both games excel at different things. I think you will agree.

#98 Posted by faizan_faizan (7846 posts) -

That setting still doesn't bring a lot of graphical tech that are being used in other next-gen games. But texture work seems to be improved. I think Gamersyde will have the answer to all our questions regarding graphics.

@scottpsfan14: it's only incomparable because it looks better than infamous. If it didn't you'd love to compare the two. You sound real fanboyish right now. In trumps infamous in pretty much every way and it is only in alpha.
