Watch Dogs PC screenshots released (TURD!)

#51 Edited by madskills6117 (4035 posts) -

We get it, the game doesn't look like the 2012 E3 reveal. Either way, day one for me on the ps4.

@kraken2109: Yeah, I think that video looks really, completely "more of the same" and that's it. If the game is fun, great. It won't be because of the way it looks.

Guess I'll find out first hand on Tuesday. It came free with my new graphics card so it's not cost me anything extra.

Let's compare to some other open world games on PC

GTA IV modded (2008 released, icenhancer came out in 2011)

Speaking of mods, it would be interesting to see just how moddable Watchdogs is. It's Ubisoft, so, it obviously wont get support.

Well Sweet FX will work and squeeze a bit more out of the visuals, I bet with a bit more saturation and contrast it will a lot better.

Don't think there will be any other modding. ENB is out of the picture since it's limited to DX9

I'll say one thing, the visuals may be pretty meh most of the time but.

The cops are fucking tenacious, they really don't give up. That was one of my big issues with gta 5, how easy it was to lose the police even with a 4 star rating.

The daytime shots look like absolute balls, but from what i've seen of the nighttime gameplay (with rain) it looks pretty decent.

That reminds me, Sleeping Dogs looked most impressive when it was raining too :P

LOL at all the PC elitists that thought the PC version maxed would blow away the PS4 version. This game looks like a cleaned up last gen game. Nothing next-gen looking about this. Second Son, Ryse, Drive Club, Arkham Knight, The Order 1886 and Killzone SF is how you do next-gen.


P.S. GTA lV with mods looks way better than Watch Dogs.

dem car models.

GTA IV is miles better than this shit. I take back what I said about this.

Almost empty streets, shitty fake reflections with even shitty low resolution cubemaps that lead to poor reflection resolution, shit textures and shit character models. I'm sure I'm missing on a lot of things.

Take a look at this image, presumably it's the lowest LOD model for that character:

And now look this NPC, its the lowest LOD model in GTA IV of that specific character (excluding the generic LOD which is only used when an NPC is miles away, you don't even notice that in-game), at least she has a face.

so i downloaded the game.. yes i pirated it.. I just had to see the performance on my computer. Don't lose your pussies as i have infact preordered it on steam.Steam says 3 days , Thats to long for me.. I just couldn't resist and needed it right away.

My conclusions are the game runs fine.. It looks better than what the screenshots show, And yes an i5 3570k @ 4.3 ghz is perfectly fine ... The i7 requirement is b.s

The r9 290 is having no problem giving me 60 frames at 1080p. Video ram usage is extremely high though, So i can see this being a problem for nvidia users.. Luckily amd cards come with 4 gig.. Its eating up 3.9 gig of video ram at ultra... There is certainly a downgrade from the E3 build.. The DOF is clearly whats lacking compared to the e3 build.. But other than that it still looks fucking good and the gameplay is good as well. So no problems here

lol PS4 version is 900p yea man some next gen there

And please how many games on the ps4 are going look this good at the scale the games above have achieved?

#63 Posted by IgGy621985 (4991 posts) -

It's difficult to believe the industry is still relying on "hey let's show you something you definitely won't get", when it comes to graphics quality. I seriously thought we left that behind at the beginning of the PAST-gen console generation.

#64 Posted by Kjranu (1284 posts) -

Watch Dogs looks like Max Payne 3 on medium settings. Though I'm sure it'll look as good as MP3 on ultra settings as we can see in 4k screenshots.

This is how Watch Dogs' character models look like from a distance, the distance isn't even that big.

Those modded gta4 shots are atrocious. Why do people like all this hdr nonsense WHILE playing the game? Hdr is tacky 99 percent of the time.

#67 Edited by m3dude1 (1648 posts) -

lol so much for the glorious pc version pc clowns kept hyping up. its basically the same as the ps4 version at a higher resolution. the difference is even smaller than black flag. infamous wins again

#68 Posted by AM-Gamer (5284 posts) -

It looks pretty much just like the PS4 at it's highest settings. Looks like the leaked reviews were right.

watchdogs isnt needed on ps4, they have infamous.

#73 Edited by cainetao11 (19548 posts) -

So glad I am not a graphics whore. It looks good to me, and I am not looking to play it because of what it looks like. I did that with Ryse and well Its just a mediocre game. I am hoping this game is fun to play.

Yet if watchdog ends up scoring higher and more acclaim? Not like its difficult when infamous only has a metacritic of 80 and got a 8 on GS.

#75 Edited by m3dude1 (1648 posts) -

this is about graphics. watchdogs wont score higher on graphics even on pc. actually im willing to bet pc wont win a single graphics award ANYWHERE(not including the retarded artistic category) this year unless the award is limited to pcs specifically

Yea and you said watchdog isn't needed on the ps4

durp

How many places actually even gives out graphic awards

So what's your point on saying watchdog isn't needed on the ps4? Unless you can clarify

oh about open world titles?

#79 Edited by Kinthalis (5340 posts) -

I've got some ultra settings lightly compressed 60 FPS 1440p footage. Will upload and share in a bit.

The game looks good. It's not the 2012 reveal, but it looks good. Better than the highly compressed shots above would indicate, that's for sure.

it doesnt matter that watch dogs is ugly on ps4 because they already have open world graphics king.

and lol arma

#81 Edited by hoosier7 (3976 posts) -

Well that's disappointing, they say you need an i7 for this? Must be piss poorly optimised then. Looks like a patched up last gen game.

God imagine how it was before the delay.

#83 Posted by clyde46 (47595 posts) -

Quite glad I decided to pass on this. For a PC game that Nivida touted for its Titan Black card, it looks pants. So much for "needing a Titan Black to max this". Still its much better than playing at 900p 30FPS.

why do you guys feel the need to argue with m3dude? It's not going to go anywhere and he's not even an entertaining troll. Or do you just need something to do between slamming your head into a wall and hitting your fingers with a hammer

I know, but I don't see the entertainment in arguing with m3dude. And usually when I'm "baited" i just want to see how far and how ridiculous I can push the trolls
