How much is enough ? Looks so flat now and the game have become a pop up mess. It tottaly ruins the experience for me, and it looks so PS3’ish now. Please let us choose graphics over performance. I did NOT buy a ps4 pro for this. It looked so amazing from 1.02, how can you keep destroying one of the best things about this game. Sorry but i realy love this game, and hate that you keep tweaking the graphics down. I did NOT have performance problems, only in cutscenes.

We received a few reports from players that after the 1.03 update that there were drops in the draw distance. Is this the issue you are experiencing after installing update 1.04? If so did you also experience this after installing update 1.03?

Can you provide a video or images as examples.

As I mentioned this was reported and is currently being investigated.

@ Ubi-Keo

Yes it started after 1.03, and now after 1.04 it has become even worse with the pop ups/details on textures and shadows.

It’s the same as users already posted, it’s just more extreme now. When you fly around with senu/walking, details on houses pop up. Shadows on trees also pop up when walking closer to them. In general everything looks flat and ugly from distance.

then try it out on a regular ps4.. its a ring around you about 30 meters that gets draw in.. it looks extremely bad now..

Just taken these, this is how bad it looks now :(

Believe it or not this is actually from the ps4 pro, pictures i just have taken after patch 1.04

@ fortetsanos

Yes, but that is NOT okay for a 2017 game. They keep downgrading graphics for performance. Feels like they take an easy quick way to get performance instead of tweaking the game code instead.

I agree with you. Totally. But not everybody can succeed on that. As talented as they are, it's a huge open world game with tons of stuff included there. Obviously they can't make the textures shine. Neither Witcher 3 had the perfect textures on consoles and that's something we need to admit. So by lowering the textures far away into the distance would bring less things for the concole's hardware to bear and run smoothly. About coding, i'm not an expert on that. So i can't judge.

I did a little bit of programming but never reached that level. lol

11-06-2017, 07:57 PM
Yeah just such a shame. Realy love this game so much. Hope it get’s fixed. I can’t play it in this state it is now. Was acceptable with 1.03, but 1.04 draw distance is not acceptable!!!!

I am playing on Ps4 pro and after installing the 1.04 patch, the draw distance became really bad...especially when you are using senu to scout, is becomes a pop-up mess.All the textures constantly poping up when you are walking just ruins the immersion for me.I have to take a break from the game and see if this will be fix in the future...

Yeah. The game was running fine on my PS4 pro with beautiful graphic before 1.04 patch.
In addition i have been experiencing stutters when Bayeks move around cities. And that texture pop-up really ruins the game.

In addition, the draw distance problem coupled with texture pop-up is at it's worst in the canyon areas

Agree, On PS4 Pro, best image quality was version 1.02.

11-07-2017, 04:33 PM
I had an issue with the HDR. I had to set it to its lowest setting cause everthing was super white and very bright (playing on a ps4 pro and Samsung SUHD tv). Now Lots of the city areas seem very smokey (dunno if it's just me). I have not patched to 1.04 yet. Think I will skip it for now. Beside the HDR issue I was happy with the frame rate and textures.

Unfortunatly guys, that's what Ubisoft has been doing for years "Improved stability and performance" in patch notes = graphic downgrade most of time.

And then you always got some rep saying, "this is a problem that's being investigated by the dev". Same scenario everytime, And no more answer or new after that.

I am experiencing same issue with texture and shadows pop in. Mostly buildings. Also looks like the image quality and lighting took a big hit after latest patch.

11-07-2017, 06:41 PM
I just hope they do something about it, I'm pretty disappointed with how the game for me went from really pretty to flat featureless buildings . I was pretty happy with the game before 1.03. My brother was was watching me play cause of all the adds he saw . Then he saw how bad it was running and got horizon zero instead. Told him they will probably fix it, he told me his wallet doesn't speak probably lol

11-07-2017, 07:36 PM
Please bring it back to 1.02 NOT 1.03 which was already a massive downgrade. Like others said, no performance issues on PS4 pro with 1.02 execpt really small fps drop in cut scenes which was more than okay and more acceptable than this PS2 mess...

I had already opened a thread with images from 1.03 you can see how ugly the game looks.

RobbeMarley
11-07-2017, 08:02 PM
Ubisoft, whatever you did to the graphics, please revert it to the settings of 1.03 or 1.02. I'm running it on a normal ps4 and since patch 1.04 there's noticeable texture pop ins and the draw distance is worse to the point it really bothers me while it was great in the older versions. I had no performance issues running the older patches and now the game looks pretty flat in the distance. Wish I could delete the patch and run an older version again but that's not possible if you've got the digital version. Please ubisoft don't ignore us people :)

basemix2007
11-07-2017, 09:27 PM
Sometimes i wonder who approved these last 2 patches. I don’t think the lead person on this game would be cool with this mess the team made here. This is not by any means performance and stability in my eyes. The performance did not even change in gameplay only in cutscenes on the pro. Hope this get’s a hotfix as quick as possible!!

I contacted yongyea if anybody knows him and asked him if he could take this up. Because i’m starting to feel mad here. There should by now be a hotfix out. Since 1.03 sooo many here was telling about draw distance and what do they do, they decrease it even further.

I realy just wanna play, but who want to play such a beautifull fantastic game that have turned into such an ugly nightmare in visuals. I don’t 😥

11-07-2017, 11:46 PM
I don't think they'll fix it to be honest. A lot of these changes were done to address the frame pacing issues that review sites pointed out. There were a lot of cases where FPS dropped down to 25 or 24 from 30. They may restore some of the graphical fidelity because right now it looks ridiculous, but I would not expect it to go back to 1.02 or 1.03 levels.

RPGCrazied
11-08-2017, 12:01 AM
I'm noticing this too on standard PS4. Not so much draw distance, but way more pop ups than previous patch.I'm fearing they will drop resolution to 900p next, please don't do that. And please fix the stuttering, mostly in bigger towns.

Uncle_savage
11-08-2017, 09:53 AM
I am genuinely upset about how bad the graphics are now and i'm on ps4 slim. I have a draw distance of maybe 25 feet and textures are constantly changing or popping in and out as i move. Everything past draw distance has terrible textures. Mountains and building look like crap from afar, they only look normal when you get really close to them. Ubisoft please just revert back to old patch so we can have good graphics again. I have no desire to continue playing if this is how the graphics are going to be from now on. Which is a shame because i wanted to do trials of the gods. I literally had no performance issues pre patch and i'm on ps4 slim.

Triumphant75
11-08-2017, 02:12 PM
Either it's the boats that do not load correctly even though I am close to the sea, or the facing building ... Any objet is LOD when you zoom, this is a joke..
The Siwa image to show that even the red flags or the flames at left entrance of the facing temple do not even load even though I am close enough

To be clear, we had NO performance issues on patch 1.02 (best graphics so far), so no, there was no compromise between performance and graphics for PS4 Pro (even PS4 I guess).

Let's not even mention the shadows and texture pop up at 5 meters away !

Ubisoft, is this what I get for having trusted you and preordered the deluxe edition ?

I'm so sorry this is my first post on this forum.

What was a magical experience a week ago is making me mad by the minute thanks to this patch,

As a Pro owner, I demand excellent fidelity, such as what we got at launch. Now the game truly looks like a souped up 360 game,why is that? It was beautiful and ran well, far better than any last gen version of the game.

Whatever they did to the game, they screwed it up. Does it run better? Well yes and no, because what was once a minor annoyance by very infrequent lower fps became a FREQUENt and PERMANENT visual annoyance due to the very low LoD. IT's distracting, it's riiculous, and don't get me started on the lighting downgrade,

All I can say is, please let us go back to 1.02, or give us an option (Performance or High quality, whatever), I want to play the game just like it was when I was floored away and telling ewveryone to buy it, now i'm kinda ashamed of that.

Please Ubisoft, don't screw up what has been your best work in years.

I agree with everybody in here. The last update (1.04) made this game unplayable. Lowering the graphics was the worst possible idea. I understand there were some FPS drops here and there but nothing that made the game unplayable. Now? This game looks like garbage. The lighting has been downgraded a bunch, the LoD textures really are ****, they slowly load in a span of 20 - 30 seconds if I stand still. Any rock formation or stairs will be in low detail mode for about 10 - 20 seconds and then proceeds to update the quality in 10 secods.

Besides the fact that this update also corrupted my game I had to reinstall for 20 minutes to come back to a low setting PC game (or weak PS3/360 game) The ezio collection looks better then this.

MisterBeech
11-08-2017, 02:56 PM
Please tell me this wasn’t done on purpose as a cheap and lazy way to change performance. The game was so much better before the patch. Have they even acknowledged whether it’s a mistake? They just seem to be saying they’ve gotten reports and no answer on if they’ll change it back

RPGCrazied
11-08-2017, 03:17 PM
I'm really tempted to uninstall game, and run on 1.0, but then I won't get photo mode upgrades or will I be able to play the DLC. But currently it looks bad. I'd rather have framerate issues then have an ugly game.

juanresq92
11-08-2017, 03:46 PM
Please let us choose between "Performance" and "Fidelity". There's no reason why we shouldn't be able to experience the game as we did at launch, looking great and running well.

It's really sad that the internet has told me this is a very Ubisoft thing to do. Patches are not supposed to ruin games, they're supposed to make them better. What was once a graphical showcase has become a headache inducing low resolution thing in a week.

Please devs, please reconsider this choice. It's your work of years, it deserves to be remembered as good as it really can be.

Courtnetvictory
11-08-2017, 04:01 PM
I think the devs know the problem becuase it is so notable,unless they did zero testing before releasing patch 1.04 which is hard to imagine.I wish they would fix the problem in the future ,even by increasing the 'instability' which I never experienced before on the pro,but maybe they won't.I love the assassins's creed so much that I will still keep playing it and tell lies to myself that the graphics is all fine and the pop-up adds a new level of 'mysteriousness' to the game,but it is just sad and frustrating now.

Please give us expanded graphic option settings for PS4 as a compromise if performance is an issue for some.

Even on a normal PS4, I had like only two issues of slowdown that lasted 2 seconds each in 30 hours of play. Completely unnecessary to un-develop your game.

Also, a lot of the reps say the issue is being investigated, can we get more substantive updates on progress and when they expect it to be fixed?

Just got a respond to a ticket i made 2 days ago.

They are working on fixing this, but then the big question is - how much of the eye candy do we get back ? Is it gonna be 1.02 or 1.03 graphics. I realy hope they make it right this time.

From my highlighted word , i think you know what I want to say. Graphic on PS4 , PS4 pro and XBOX one have been downgraded, except xbox one X. Oh shame on you ! You want us to buy xbox X in order to have best graphic so youhave downgrade all other verion :mad: . SHAME ON YOU UBISOFT

I can confirm all of this issues on base PS4 (Slim).

Severe pop-in
Low res buildings/vegetation
Decreased draw distance
Texture streaming problems
Low res placeholder textures dont load into the correct versions (especially ground textures in Memphis)
Worse lighting/ambient occlusion

The best part: performance and stability has not changed at all from base version

All this happening after 1.03, got worse and more notable after 1.04

1.02 ran fine, looked amazing and everyone was happy with visuals and performance -> bring the game back to this graphics-wise

Listen to your players! We do not want a downgrade just because of some arrangement about money and new consoles

Even the skybox looks it got downgraded, looks low res.

So we went from a game that looked beautiful, to something that looks atrocious? And it really didn't help with performance, on standard PS4 I'm still seeing fps issues in the SAME spots I was seeing in the last patch with better graphics.So all this patch did was downgrade graphics, thats it.

Who said it was going to be fixed? All they’ve said here is they’ve gotten the reports. Doesn’t mean the downgrade was unintended. Could be a cheap performance solution that they decided to compromise the visuals for. They’ve removed graphical fidelity from games before and never put them back, all for supposed performance.

They have yet to confirm this was unintended, and yet to say they actually consider it something they need to fix

Pro looks horrendously borked

Same problems here, playing on standard PS4. Game looks so flat and downgraded and performance isn't much better. I still get massive frame drops in big cities, textures are not loaded, pop/ins are everywhere and, overall, I lost desire to continue playing until this is fixed PERMANENTLY. Don't let us down, Ubisoft.

This issue hasn't been mentioned in the Known issu sticky thread yet so I think nothing is guaranteed at this point.Some people are saying that they hasn't notice any downgradessince the 1.04 patch,and the frame rate has been improved(most of them are playing on regular ps4 ).Some even said that many of the people who had notice downgrades are paranoia.

I can confirm all the issues in my game so I am really confused right now.Why are some affected by the issue and others not(or let's say they think they are not)?

I'm on PS4 slim, and I had no performance issues with 1.02 when the game was first released. Since the "upgrades" and patches I've got pop up city.

It's totally spoilt an otherwise stunning game. When 1.03 first came out and I read "performance improvements" in the change log, I thought jezz how can they make this even better than they already have!!!! The rest is history.....including the immersion and graphics. :(

Please fix your hard work devs, this game deserves better than this. Can't you guy's just roll us back to 1.02?.....please? Everyone would be happy then. at least until you guy's sort out whatever issues you may have, we would have the stunning game we HAD a week ago back.

Please roll back to 1.02 it was perfect on my PS4 Slim........

I am playing with the standard PS4.

Almost every game out there nowadays will get "the patch downgraded it"-threads in the forums and usually it's ******** and people just try to convince themselves ... saying things like "I can see it clearly, literally, it's like PS2 graphics now"

Then they start posting screenhsots of some rough corners of the gameworld as proof ... but you can make ugly screenhsots even in the most beautiful games and those rough corners they discovered usually looked as horrible before the acclaimed "downgrade-patch" hit.

And becasue auto-suggestion is a really strong and mighty thing more and more peolke will jump on the train and start thinking "yes, it's clearly way more ugly then before, I see it, too".

But I am normally completely unaffected by those threads ... in this case I am not so sure ... I do get the impression somethings not quite "there" anymore, too. But I try to find any real evidence and this is where it gets tricky.

First of all: Running around in the gameworld while aiming with the bow does indeed get you some really ugly sights with low-poly models and low-res textures all over the place.
Like in the many examples already posted in here and I do have some of these as well.

https://www2.pic-upload.de/thumb/34262764/AssassinsCreedOrigins_20171108222859.png (https://www.pic-upload.de/view-34262764/AssassinsCreedOrigins_20171108222859.png.html)

BUT:
I must say that I never watched the actual gameworld seeking for ugly things like that in "bow-view" ... until now I only used the "bow aiming" to actually aim at a target and fire ... so I can't tell if this hasn't been a problem with the 1.02 version ... If I could roll back to 1.02 than I could check it ... but sadly that's not possible on consoles.
Someone with the disc version might at least try to rollback to a completely unpatched 1.00 and check if there are the same ugly spots while aiminig with the bow. Then we'd have some proof.


But even besides the most obvious problems while amining with the bow I do think graphically AC:O does not impress me as much anymore since 1.04 ... but again ... this might actually just be auto-suggestion.
But I am finding some really rough sights over and over now and I believe I never stumbled upon such sights before ... quite the opposite: Before I spent literally hours just walking through this game world in awe of all the beauty ...

So here some examples what I stumble upon now:

With 1.02 and 1.03 everything looked like this:

https://www2.pic-upload.de/thumb/34263055/AssassinsCreedOrigins_20171028034110.png (https://www.pic-upload.de/view-34263055/AssassinsCreedOrigins_20171028034110.png.html) https://www2.pic-upload.de/thumb/34263059/AssassinsCreedOrigins_20171028234530.png (https://www.pic-upload.de/view-34263059/AssassinsCreedOrigins_20171028234530.png.html) https://www2.pic-upload.de/thumb/34263067/AssassinsCreedOrigins_20171029183956.png (https://www.pic-upload.de/view-34263067/AssassinsCreedOrigins_20171029183956.png.html) https://www2.pic-upload.de/thumb/34263074/AssassinsCreedOrigins_20171029213730.png (https://www.pic-upload.de/view-34263074/AssassinsCreedOrigins_20171029213730.png.html) https://www2.pic-upload.de/thumb/34263089/AssassinsCreedOrigins_20171030005343.png (https://www.pic-upload.de/view-34263089/AssassinsCreedOrigins_20171030005343.png.html) https://www2.pic-upload.de/thumb/34263092/AssassinsCreedOrigins_20171030225003.png (https://www.pic-upload.de/view-34263092/AssassinsCreedOrigins_20171030225003.png.html) https://www2.pic-upload.de/thumb/34263099/AssassinsCreedOrigins_20171031003608.png (https://www.pic-upload.de/view-34263099/AssassinsCreedOrigins_20171031003608.png.html) https://www2.pic-upload.de/thumb/34263103/AssassinsCreedOrigins_20171106002543.png (https://www.pic-upload.de/view-34263103/AssassinsCreedOrigins_20171106002543.png.html)


But then again ... this doesn't proove anything ...like I said ... you can take ugly screenshots in even the most beautiful games if you really want to ... noone can tell if the "ugly screenshots" would have looked as ugly with 1.02 and the better screenshots below still look as good in 1.04 without actually doublechecking it.

For example: I still do have "good looking" shots with 1.04:

https://www2.pic-upload.de/thumb/34263125/AssassinsCreedOrigins_20171106222527.png (https://www.pic-upload.de/view-34263125/AssassinsCreedOrigins_20171106222527.png.html) https://www2.pic-upload.de/thumb/34263142/AssassinsCreedOrigins_20171107003055.png (https://www.pic-upload.de/view-34263142/AssassinsCreedOrigins_20171107003055.png.html)


So a real comparison of the same scenes is actually needed...

Sadly I didnt do much screenshots with 1.02 ... the most were done with 1.03 (where first claims of "downgrading" already started).

So I tried at least to recreate some of the shots I made with 1.02 ... the most obvious difference I could find is in the following comparison ... but since you can only skip from moring to beginning of night without an option to wait for a speciific amount of time ingame (seriously, Ubisoft, I want that feature! Witcher 3 and the Bethesda RPGs do have that ... there should be an international law that says every open world game should have that option^^) the scene is at completely different times and therefore completely different lighting.
And this alone will make the 1.04 way more ugly than the 1.02 shot ...
But there is something I found apart from the lighting ... look at this:

https://www2.pic-upload.de/thumb/34263250/AssassinsCreedOrigins_20171029060847.png (https://www.pic-upload.de/view-34263250/AssassinsCreedOrigins_20171029060847.png.html) https://www2.pic-upload.de/thumb/34263253/AssassinsCreedOrigins_20171109144321.png (https://www.pic-upload.de/view-34263253/AssassinsCreedOrigins_20171109144321.png.html)

And I do think that some of the stones and structures do have a slightly higher resolution in their textures in the 1.02 shot, but this could as well just be becasue of the different lighting (the rim lighting in the 1.02 shot should naturally emphasize structures more so this could defintely be the case here).


I made another comparison where I tried to wait for a similar ingame-time ... but in this I couldn't really find any definitive difference ...

the left one is 1.02 and the right one is 1.04
https://www2.pic-upload.de/thumb/34263268/AssassinsCreedOrigins_20171027231254.png (https://www.pic-upload.de/view-34263268/AssassinsCreedOrigins_20171027231254.png.html) https://www2.pic-upload.de/thumb/34263271/AssassinsCreedOrigins_20171109150636.png (https://www.pic-upload.de/view-34263271/AssassinsCreedOrigins_20171109150636.png.html)


But what I think is clearly visible now is some struggle with the texture streaming ...
I don't get many pop-ups in terms of "sudden popping in of buildings/trees/people in front of me" ... but a constant delay in loading/streaming textures ...
Do any of you remember the shooter "Rage" from ID Software with the horrible megatexture technology that resulted in super slow streaming textures? Where you could look left and everything was super low-res and literally took seconds to load the actual high-res textures and then look back right and everything starts again with the low-res/high-res problems?

Something like that is now in AC:O ... not nearly as problematic as it was in RAGE, but I do spot a small delay in texture-streaming very often now and can't remember seeing anything of this before 1.04.

And there might be some sublte changes to some of the shaders as well (and to show these differences with screenhsots would be really hard) ... for example a lot of the "magic" in the lighting came from the flowing sand/dust-particles in AC:O ... especially during sunrise and sunset where everything becomes this special golden touch ...

Things like this:
https://www2.pic-upload.de/thumb/34263350/AssassinsCreedOrigins_20171105233303.png (https://www.pic-upload.de/view-34263350/AssassinsCreedOrigins_20171105233303.png.html)


And if one where to tune this down a little bit it would be something that could improve fps a little bit while having a huge impact on the overall visual impression without actually beeing able to show it in a screenshot ...
So maybe something like that is at work here.

But in the end it might just alll be imagination and we are convincing ourselves of a downgrade that is actually not really there. Like I said ... auto-suggestion is a reallly mighty thing.

I am playing with the standard PS4.

Almost every game out there nowadays will get "the patch downgraded it"-threads in the forums and usually it's ******** and people just try to convince themselves ... saying things like "I can see it clearly, literally, it's like PS2 graphics now"

Then they start posting screenhsots of some rough corners of the gameworld as proof ... but you can make ugly screenhsots even in the most beautiful games and those rough corners they discovered usually looked as horrible before the acclaimed "downgrade-patch" hit.

And becasue auto-suggestion is a really strong and mighty thing more and more peolke will jump on the train and start thinking "yes, it's clearly way more ugly then before, I see it, too".

But I am normally completely unaffected by those threads ... in this case I am not so sure ... I do get the impression somethings not quite "there" anymore, too. But I try to find any real evidence and this is where it gets tricky.

First of all: Running around in the gameworld while aiming with the bow does indeed get you some really ugly sights with low-poly models and low-res textures all over the place.
Like in the many examples already posted in here and I do have some of these as well.

https://www2.pic-upload.de/thumb/34262764/AssassinsCreedOrigins_20171108222859.png (https://www.pic-upload.de/view-34262764/AssassinsCreedOrigins_20171108222859.png.html)

BUT:
I must say that I never watched the actual gameworld seeking for ugly things like that in "bow-view" ... until now I only used the "bow aiming" to actually aim at a target and fire ... so I can't tell if this hasn't been a problem with the 1.02 version ... If I could roll back to 1.02 than I could check it ... but sadly that's not possible on consoles.
Someone with the disc version might at least try to rollback to a completely unpatched 1.00 and check if there are the same ugly spots while aiminig with the bow. Then we'd have some proof.


But even besides the most obvious problems while amining with the bow I do think graphically AC:O does not impress me as much anymore since 1.04 ... but again ... this might actually just be auto-suggestion.
But I am finding some really rough sights over and over now and I believe I never stumbled upon such sights before ... quite the opposite: Before I spent literally hours just walking through this game world in awe of all the beauty ...

So here some examples what I stumble upon now:

Ok, I'm playing now, and just noticed that texture streaming is wrong. I was literally at 2 steps of a rock, and took like 10 seconds to load high res texture.

Then, in krocodilopolis, I was seein bad textures at distance, like 100 meters. When zoomed in, textures loaded correctly, but when zooming out It reversed, and im not saying a little bug, every jerogliph, every arc, every ornament was very ugly.

I want to stress what Riot23 said in his post, especially considering the texture streaming and the „magical glow“ that was in every scene before the patches. Those issues are clearly notable and it is a fact that the patches messed something up regarding streaming and lighting.

Moreover, I want to remind people to not battle each other over if the downgrade is real or not, intended or unintended, since this would give the devs a rather cheap excuse to not look into the matter.

And we all want a clarification and a superb looking game, so lets leave the whole „auto-suggestion“ ******** out of this. Riot23 has some of the best screenshots that exemplify the overall change in fidelity, even if he thinks it is just his mind auto-suggesting ;)

no no, I dind't say I just think it's just auto-suggestion.
I just said "I can't confirm for sure if it is not maybe auto-suggestion"

But in general I said and believe that there is something "lost" in the visuals since 1.04^^

But then again ... this doesn't proove anything ...like I said ... you can take ugly screenshots in even the most beautiful games if you really want to ... noone can tell if the "ugly screenshots" would have looked as ugly with 1.02 and the better screenshots below still look as good in 1.04 without actually doublechecking it.

For example: I still do have "good looking" shots with 1.04:

https://www2.pic-upload.de/thumb/34263125/AssassinsCreedOrigins_20171106222527.png (https://www.pic-upload.de/view-34263125/AssassinsCreedOrigins_20171106222527.png.html) https://www2.pic-upload.de/thumb/34263142/AssassinsCreedOrigins_20171107003055.png (https://www.pic-upload.de/view-34263142/AssassinsCreedOrigins_20171107003055.png.html)


So a real comparison of the same scenes is actually needed...

Sadly I didnt do much screenshots with 1.02 ... the most were done with 1.03 (where first claims of "downgrading" already started).

So I tried at least to recreate some of the shots I made with 1.02 ... the most obvious difference I could find is in the following comparison ... but since you can only skip from moring to beginning of night without an option to wait for a speciific amount of time ingame (seriously, Ubisoft, I want that feature! Witcher 3 and the Bethesda RPGs do have that ... there should be an international law that says every open world game should have that option^^) the scene is at completely different times and therefore completely different lighting.
And this alone will make the 1.04 way more ugly than the 1.02 shot ...
But there is something I found apart from the lighting ... look at this:

https://www2.pic-upload.de/thumb/34263250/AssassinsCreedOrigins_20171029060847.png (https://www.pic-upload.de/view-34263250/AssassinsCreedOrigins_20171029060847.png.html) https://www2.pic-upload.de/thumb/34263253/AssassinsCreedOrigins_20171109144321.png (https://www.pic-upload.de/view-34263253/AssassinsCreedOrigins_20171109144321.png.html)

And I do think that some of the stones and structures do have a slightly higher resolution in their textures in the 1.02 shot, but this could as well just be becasue of the different lighting (the rim lighting in the 1.02 shot should naturally emphasize structures more so this could defintely be the case here).


I made another comparison where I tried to wait for a similar ingame-time ... but in this I couldn't really find any definitive difference ...

the left one is 1.02 and the right one is 1.04
https://www2.pic-upload.de/thumb/34263268/AssassinsCreedOrigins_20171027231254.png (https://www.pic-upload.de/view-34263268/AssassinsCreedOrigins_20171027231254.png.html) https://www2.pic-upload.de/thumb/34263271/AssassinsCreedOrigins_20171109150636.png (https://www.pic-upload.de/view-34263271/AssassinsCreedOrigins_20171109150636.png.html)


But what I think is clearly visible now is some struggle with the texture streaming ...
I don't get many pop-ups in terms of "sudden popping in of buildings/trees/people in front of me" ... but a constant delay in loading/streaming textures ...
Do any of you remember the shooter "Rage" from ID Software with the horrible megatexture technology that resulted in super slow streaming textures? Where you could look left and everything was super low-res and literally took seconds to load the actual high-res textures and then look back right and everything starts again with the low-res/high-res problems?

Something like that is now in AC:O ... not nearly as problematic as it was in RAGE, but I do spot a small delay in texture-streaming very often now and can't remember seeing anything of this before 1.04.

And there might be some sublte changes to some of the shaders as well (and to show these differences with screenhsots would be really hard) ... for example a lot of the "magic" in the lighting came from the flowing sand/dust-particles in AC:O ... especially during sunrise and sunset where everything becomes this special golden touch ...

Things like this:
https://www2.pic-upload.de/thumb/34263350/AssassinsCreedOrigins_20171105233303.png (https://www.pic-upload.de/view-34263350/AssassinsCreedOrigins_20171105233303.png.html)


And if one where to tune this down a little bit it would be something that could improve fps a little bit while having a huge impact on the overall visual impression without actually beeing able to show it in a screenshot ...
So maybe something like that is at work here.

But in the end it might just alll be imagination and we are convincing ourselves of a downgrade that is actually not really there. Like I said ... auto-suggestion is a reallly mighty thing.

I initially felt like something was off after 1.04 but kept playing, after a while i started to get annoyed by noticable pop-in and low res textures.
I don't recall being annoyed by that at all, so i'm very sure it wasn't there before.

I also had a weird feeling with the lighting, but i also shrugged this off, but seeing all the commotion and this comparison is pointing towards a visual downgrade of sorts.

Best report so far, nice work!

no no, I dind't say I just think it's just auto-suggestion.
I just said "I can't confirm for sure if it is not maybe auto-suggestion"

But in general I said and believe that there is something "lost" in the visuals since 1.04^^

Thank you for clarifying this! I was thinking you were leaning a bit more towards auto-suggestion, so its good to hear that you also see that something is off with visual fidelity since the patches.

I really hope the devs are looking into this right now and will bring back the visual glory this game deserves and actually had at launch!

EDIT: I noticed a problem with anything that is dynamic cloth as well. Since the patches, flags, cloth, long wall carpets and basically everything made out of cloth that reacts to movement, touch and wind is running at a lower framerate than the rest of the world. Happens in basically every city and temple. Looks like the dynamic cloth is moving in slow-mo, sometimes it even jumps frames and looks like it is stuttering. On 1.02, cloth amazed me because it looked so silky-smooth in movement...

Additionally, I found some users reporting this issues on Xbox One X as well, so the devs really should do something about it. Here is a link for evidence:

Me again. I just loaded up the game after some days without playing, and I have to say the issues are undeniably recognizable from the very moment you enter gameplay. It looks so bad, the LOD, draw distance and texture issues are really obvious and make the game look like a last gen title. The borked lighting serves as the final hit to a formerly gorgeous looking game, makes everything look flat and dumb.

It hit me so hard I removed the disc from my PS4 for the first time since release, after 50 wonderful hours with one of the graphically most impressive games ever. I‘m putting the game on hold now until the issues are fixed and we get 1.02-graphics back, although it hurts to pause a game I have been playing every single day for the last two weeks.

Was going to buy the Season Pass, too. If the game stays like this, however, Im not buying any Ubi game ever again.

Is it so hard to roll back visual changes and so called performance improvements introduced by the patches and bring the game back to its 1.02 visual glory?!

I am not only disappointed, but almost mad about this.

The Ubisoft represantatives here said two times that the issues are known and currently being "investigated".

Now there's even a big player (Digital Foundry) confirming that the game is back to pre-release graphics.

How can one not mention this problems in the Known Issues thread, since this is being discussed since 2 days maybe? It is one of the hottest topics at the moment, and they just pretend there's nothing happening? Game looks ugly now and looked amazing at launch, how can one not care about this?!

I am currently working on a short video and some screenshot comparisons, since I found some screenshots I took before the patches hit. Visited the same locations now and took comparison shots. Stay tuned for more evidence!

C'mon know, brother. Just turn on the game and start running or riding a horse. You'll instantly see crazy pop/ins on trees, buildings, statues etc. After that, look at sky. It's contantly cloudy! Do I have to mention downgraded dynamic cloth mechanics on buildings and even on characters. Game's looking flat and dull and that's an issue with lighting.

Everybody are agreeing about those issues, even Xbox One X users.

If those screenshots are not enough for team to start working on fixing this BS, I'll give you a video to see for yourself in case you haven't played the game since patch 1.04.

LoD textures and pop/ins: https://youtu.be/0CNkfzdQOPo

On my standard PS4, damn pop-ins are everywhere, textures are not fully loaded and, overall, whole world lost it's graphic fidelity from version 1.02.
As a customer who paid full price for Deluxe Edition at day one, I want this to be fixed as soon as possible.

It’s imposible to compare when you can’t go back to 1.02.

I already made a ticket with screenshots and was told they were working on a fix. But now your telling me that they have dropped this issue and need more ?

Well i hope digital foundry make a video about this so the team can see what the users see.

Sounds like the developer won’t agree on what we see and we have to post videos now and so on to prove this problem - unbelieveable 😔

Sounds more and more like this will be permanent and the fight is lost. I’m giving up on this and have to deal with a product i bought is not the same as when i got it. I feel so robbed and mistreated 😢

The game used to be gorgeous on PS4 Pro 1.02 patch.
Stunning lighting effects, many dust, sands and particles, LOD and impressive draw distance, great textures quality. Now the game looks flat, textures popping 20 meters in front of me, they added a weird white-yellow filter for long distance objets, removed the gorgeous lighting effects, vegetation is almost all gone and replaced with a flat green texture, I also noticed some aliasing... The game is super ugly now.. Why Ubisoft? Performance wise, it wasn't perfect on 1.02 for me but Definitely playable. Now it's just a distracting mess! Fix it please, I recently purchased the season pass because I intend to play the game for a long time.

We can do the comparison internally to previous versions, what we need is video of what you're seeing when you play. It's not that we won't agree, but right our developers don't have a lot of cases to look at. Video taken in-game at the areas you feel are affected will be able to give them the information they need to assess the situation.

I know it's an extra step, but without your input and participation, it will be difficult for us get a good overview of what players are experiencing.

I will try to do that, I still have some videos (luckily) on Patch 1.02 and will compile some material that shows both versions against each other.

Could you, kindly, in return ask the devs about the "performance improvements" introduced with latest patch 1.04? I would especially like to know if Anisotropic Filtering was reduced, draw distances reduced, and particle and lighting effects removed? That would clear a lot up... somehow, they must have worked on visual stuff to improve performance, so why not share what they did? May be another way to find the culprit...

Thank you for this response, anyway, it feels good when you know that someone from Ubi is actually reading this!

This is disgraceful.

If Ubisoft managed to give us 1.02 version of the game, why it is not possible to just go back and do it again?
But, of course, you need more evidence. It's like you're not having your own copy of the game. Blind man can see all those issue, and everybody can see them, everybody except Ubisoft.

But there are many many examples on the web, only thing is needed is a simple research on Youtube.
Sorry but the argument that screenshots are not enough.. is an excuse.

This is a massive issue. There are professional and expert videogame portals, like Digital Foundry, that today have recognized the issue. Probably they will write an article too. They say that the game is now reverted to a pre-release status, how it was at Gamescom.
How can't the team notice the downgrade?

In all seriousness, but if the “team” can’t see the massive difference, especially in regions with lot sof vegetation or in towns, then they need new glasses
- Lod textures have shadows, closer high res models dont, very close models have sudden shadow pop-ins; this is especially noticable on trees.
- Lod textures are of lower quality closer to the player and very intrusive
- skybox looks cloudy mostly and low quality compared to 1.03/1.02
- draw-distance was obviously reduced

We have provided immens loads of picture and video evidence showing the nonsense, yet you act like they dont understand.

Tell them to please roll back to 1.02 and add HDR, because this is where everyone was happy.

Given that players across different platforms and different models of those platforms are experiencing the same issues, and coupled with the fact the community reps infer the developers cannot spot the cause of this issue and require submissions of images and videos, and henceforth there can be no estimated date for resolution, it only makes sense for all platforms to be rolled back to release patch or 1.02 (before players started having graphical issues).

All platforms should then stay at that reverted state until the issue is resolved. It is unfair to expect customers to simply trudge through the problems until resolution. Indeed it is more frustrating as a customer to only hear days later that the developers have not identified the cause of the issue. As soon as the problem came to light a reversion patch could have been sent for approval. By not doing so, its just led to a bad reputation for the game and company because forums and gaming media websites and have reported the issue.

Sorry, but that is complete BS. You can tell your friend, if he even exists, that rumors like that are toxic for the whole gaming community. This does not help resolve the problem and is false btw, because Xbox One X seems to have streaming problems as well.

After taking the game for another ride this evening, I am somewhat happy to report that, at least in my game, some of the issues seem to rather stem from the ingame location. Especially lighting and skybox stuff. Try to visit a different location from the place you are currently in the game world. For me, a bit of traveling brought back wonderful clear skies with amazing volumetric clouds, as well as golden glow from sand and dust particles when the sun is setting. Textures seem to be ok as well, in terms of quality, but what I noticed in my game is that there are definitely streaming problems. Sometimes, textures take forever to load, even those close to the player character. Pop-in is another issue I can confirm, especially when using Senu or traveling by horse. It happens a lot in bigger towns and cities, and in densely vegetated areas. Same goes with LoD, which seems to act rather aggresively sometimes, thus affecting the draw distance under certain circumstances. Things will look ugly for a bit too long, so players noticed.

I posted a ticket with Ubi support and provided them with a video about the borked cloth physics. Those are real as well, and very notable.

But other than that, I am now not so stern in regarding this a intentional downgrade. Seems to me some texture streaming and LoD issues were introduced with the last patch, but I am now leaning towards calling them bugs that could have been avoided, instead of intentional downgrade. Lighting, skybox, textures, particles and effects like godrays are absolutely ok, still in the game and havent changed since launch. Only problems are texture streaming, LoD and pop-in, as well as slow-mo cloth physics.

Yikes, Digital foundry said this is like the alpha of the game.

And patch 1.04 was only like 200 meg and only said it was for performance & stability. Suuuuuure.

Lets just see how fast they fix it now that DF is on the case.

I'm now deciding my DLC purchases for this game on this issues. If its fixed, I'll buy, if not, not going to happen.

Hi guys

I am posting this because I've heard very unsettling news , well more like a rumor..
I have a friend who works as information broker for stock market and share.
He plays games too so we recently had a discussion about this graphic mess.
What he told me was quite shocking.

He did not buy AC origin because he already knew this graphic downgrade was on it's way.

According to his source the graphic downgrade is intentional and is going to stay as it is.. because?

Yeah New Xbox one-X sales.

Apparently there has been a deal going on behind our back.

I sincerely hope this is just a rumour.

Please UBI, post something on known Issue thread or make a proper statement regarding this mess. Tell us these rumors are ********.

If these are true, i swear that I am gonna literally burn my ACO copy and will never again buy your games.
We are all dumber for having read this post.

Sorry, but that is complete BS. You can tell your friend, if he even exists, that rumors like that are toxic for the whole gaming community. This does not help resolve the problem and is false btw, because Xbox One X seems to have streaming problems as well.

After taking the game for another ride this evening, I am somewhat happy to report that, at least in my game, some of the issues seem to rather stem from the ingame location. Especially lighting and skybox stuff. Try to visit a different location from the place you are currently in the game world. For me, a bit of traveling brought back wonderful clear skies with amazing volumetric clouds, as well as golden glow from sand and dust particles when the sun is setting. Textures seem to be ok as well, in terms of quality, but what I noticed in my game is that there are definitely streaming problems. Sometimes, textures take forever to load, even those close to the player character. Pop-in is another issue I can confirm, especially when using Senu or traveling by horse.

Only problems are texture streaming, LoD and pop-in, as well as slow-mo cloth physics.

First just to clarify, yes my broker friend exist. He is living person who is alive and well.

Also, I am very happy to know that this rumour is now BS.
UbI’s recent responses regarding this graphic issue has been very helpful.
Hope they fix this and I can continue playing the game.

Just for the closing note, the gaming industry nowadays is not as clean as you might think. Especially with amount of money going in and out. Developers may be clean and wish to provide best experience possible to us gamer but the guys who hold their paychaques think differently.

You will be surprise to know who are the major shareholders of those large firms...

I see that Ubisoft have put this in their known issues thread as:

This is not just a 1.04 issue. Users also reported a visual downgrade ( including examples ) from 1.03 onwards.

Seconding this. The problems actually started with 1.03, and got way more pronounced with 1.04. Version 1.02 was the best in terms of graphical quality!

The map not rendering correctly is an issue I can also confirm!

PLEASE Ubisoft, fix this. This game is as close to perfect as it gets. I was in awe the first time I played and could not stop playing. The visuals were OUTSTANDING. I purchased the season pass immediately. In fact I went and bought the gold edition. It is a game I would gladly pay more money for more content. Unfortunately, after the last 2 patches I cannot play it. There has been a HUGE drop in graphics and also performance. Not only are the colors and lighting more dull but I am also experiencing stuttering and extreme pop in. I am playing with a PS4 Pro on a Samsung UHD TV in HDR. You have created a masterpiece in my opinion, please do not let this ruin such a great game.

I agree that the game has become a bit of an eye-sore now. There are instances where I'm right up on a surface or plant or tree and the texture doesn't even load in at ALL (PS4). So unacceptable. The game looked infinitely better before patch 1.04, and now I cringe constantly as I'm playing because of lousy draw distances, pop-up, and extremely reduced draw distances, which makes it very hard to stay immersed in what used to be a visually stunning game. I think I might put it away until it's fixed (hopefully Ubi doesn't do what EA did to ME: Andromeda and just let things deteriorate) and jump back on Destiny 2. While D2's crucible has been severely detrimented by 4-v-4 shenanigans, the game at LEAST still looks gorgeous.

I am playing on Ps4 pro and after installing the 1.04 patch, the draw distance became really bad...especially when you are using senu to scout, is becomes a pop-up mess.All the textures constantly poping up when you are walking just ruins the immersion for me.I have to take a break from the game and see if this will be fix in the future...

If there is something we learned in all the history of Ubisoft patching Assassin's Creed games, it's that 1.05 will probably be the last. So I really, really hope they will fix the issue and let us enjoy the game. I for once, am still in Alexandria unable to proceed due to the horrendous textures and details. And boy was this game looking gorgeous. I am eager as hell to play but atm can't because of Ubisoft. So if you hear me Ubisoft and I know you do, please fix this asap. Please don't let such a marvel die alone stranded in the desert. Just please.

We received a few reports from players that after the 1.03 update that there were drops in the draw distance. Is this the issue you are experiencing after installing update 1.04? If so did you also experience this after installing update 1.03?

Can you provide a video or images as examples.

As I mentioned this was reported and is currently being investigated.

1.04 has frame rate drops on standard ps4.

But then again, it's not like the game is completely unplayable or unbearable to look at - can't understand why one would stop playing...

I actually compared some screenshots from 1.02 and 1.04 that I made, and it really is not that much of a difference. The issues are obvious, but other than that, one can play just fine while waiting for the fix!

The reason I stopped playing is that, for me, a big part of the game was the visuals, the atmospherics and detail. It was great having a large area to roam around and admire the scenery. Now, not only are there obvious LOD issues, but the world looks flat due to the various changes, the atmosphere just isn't there for me anymore. I don't believe this is just one issue, it's multiple changes coming together to give the current undesirable results. It's cool that people are still enjoying it, but if a solid part of why you picked the game up was the visuals, it's also understandable that you'd be disappointed and might want to give it as break for a bit to see if it gets fixed :)

I'll keep my fingers crossed that the fix is a solid return to the earlier quality. It's great that the problem's been acknowledged though.

11-16-2017, 03:27 AM
Yeah, fingers crossed!

I really hope this also sorts out particle effects like dust clouds etc which add a lot to the environment, they're looking really flat or absent at times to me. At the moment if you ride a horse around in sandy areas and go into photomode then look at the dust clouds, they're obviously 2d textures as they rotate with your camera and appear rather low quality. Perhaps this is also an LOD issue, or is included in 'various texturing issues'. I'm hoping that these fixes have been understated for PR reasons like lazarsorak24 said.

It'll be interesting if the photomode site is suddenly no longer 'offline for maintenance' when 1.05 hits! :)

But it is good that you said that. Because if you read it like this it almost sounds it wasn't a big deal. They put it somewhere between all the other patch notes. But for us (well most of us on this particular topic about the graphics) it was just the biggest deal of all the other issues.

It's time to tweet Digital Foundry and to start a public storm****.

They have already certified the downgrade with a short tweet, now it's time to write a specific article.

Yes tweet them!
Let us know if they reply.

I think so , they have to fix the problem for all platforms at the same time as well as ensuring graphic of all platforms are not too significant different . I'm worried that such delay due to low spec of xbox one , comparing to PS4 , PS 4 pro and XBOX one X.. So i think bug will be fixed as soon as they have solution for xbox one

Dnt return game now wait till next patch if they wont fix this all players could start group suit aganist ubi to law court for refund on game they ruin. This is the only way. But now just wait i understand they need time to fix bug but patience will end someday.

Im sorry for raging but this is bit too much for me,first EA with battlefront i cancel preorder with tears in eyes now Ubi with ACO,soon all games will be unplayable because effin loot boxes forcing players to spend more $$ or grinding not playing for 1000h or terrible downgrades without reason.
Dear Ubisoft dont change ACO in to Unity pls

Sorry, you are wrong ... look at the shadows from the trees and the rim lights on the trees ... they are both at sunset ...

I left the game in this area at 1.04 at sunset... reverted back to 1.00 and loaded the savegame and instantly saw the golden light and instantly was like "omg, I've never seen this area like this (since I first arrived in this area when I was already at 1.04)"

made some more screenshots in other areas ...
Then I installed patch 1.05 and went to the same area and waited until sunset und even waited until the sunset reached it's "most golden" moment ...

Do you want to see how 1.05 looks on afternoon?
Here, take a look ... even more boring:

People on YouTube act the same. Not all of them but most of them. To blind to see it or they just don't care..

Because everybody here, even the user who posted the comparison video (thank you btw, it is clear now that all this bug thing is a bull s h i t) made a huge information error. The game released with day one patch and it was on version 1.02. Reverting to no patch, which means 1.0 will only make it even worse than it is now. So there is no hope except for Ubisoft to repair this game. If they care that is. They will launch DLC and that educational mode and they expect people to still buy it? This is Mass Effect Andromeda all over again. In the end we are stuck with a less s h i ty version of a game and have to deal with it. They have our money. WTF? Take EA's example. After the hate they received, they dropped micro transactions in Battlefront 2 completely. Maybe a Reddit with YouTube videos and 500k down-votes on their pages like FB, YouTube, and so on will make them reconsider messing with us again. Also, I won't spend another dollar on their **** products. Damn you Ubisoft! Damn you!

I truly worry about some of you, banging on about downgrades. You understand that most games get downgrades because when they first appear at events like E3 the devs go beyond the point of ambitious and show off an early version of a game running on a super high spec PC. They mainly do this to build up hype or perhaps with the hope they can retain the look and feel of it. But development of games isn't as easy as some of you seem to believe. I guess both sides are to blame - including us - because we have this picture in our heads of what has to be delivered. Origins has not been downgraded. There is nothing to downgrade. It's not Watchdog or Division which was released looking completely different from the original showcase. Grow up.

How many times do they have to state they've acknowledged it's a problem that shouldn't be present. So much petulant feet stamping around here. The chaps that have posted screengrabs and videos - well done. There is no doubt the game needs a specific patch and the community responding and sharing has already helped them understand a fix is required. The rest of you crying about how they don't care and wanting to refund their copy - go on then, go and refund it.

Buddy, you understand that people are not talking about a downgrade of the game from the E3 build, they're talking about a downgrade from previous patches (1.02) where the game looked really good, but then they decided to "Fix" something in the recent patches but in reality they just made the game uglier.

For the love of all things beautiful, that's exactly my point. It isn't a shady downgrade from pre-release to fully priced released version. All of you seem to be stuck in an echo-chamber You chaps honestly believe they would downgrade a game that run perfectly for no reason at all? Especially as there was no performance issues before the downgrade. They've ADMITTED the issue, thanking the community for sharing the details (a polite thing to do). Let's pretend they tried to do something to aid performance regardless and it screwed up and impacted the graphics - it still doesn't matter. They've ACKNOWLEDGED the fact there's an issue. That's all that matters. Nobody is being ignored, there is no conspiracy. They are working to fix it. I appreciate people are frustrated but some of you have been in the Egyptian sun for too long and you've started to hallucinate.

I don't want to argue with any of you. Sometimes games are released in an absolute mess of state (Unity anyone?). Even the Witcher needed countless patches and some of their updates caused fps issues and texture problems too. You think the devs do this on purpose just to ruin our day?

Interestingly for me, on PS4, draw distance and lighting is actually looking pretty decent. Pop-ins still not right. But I'm okay because UBISOFT ARE FIXING IT. Focus on that.

Peace and love.

Playing 1.05 now, they definitely did something to texture detail. I can see big differences in ground, sand textures. I want to say terrain distance is further now and less pop in, but the textures look bad most of the time. And still runs the same, really haven't seen any performance gains.

On a standard PS4.

Sorry Looking at those comparisons I don't really see the big issue. They fixed the LOD and texture streaming issues. Game runs smoother for me then it did on the 1.02/1.00 patch you guys so aggresively love.

Sometimes you have to make a compromise. You say the original looked beautiful and ran fine. I had a whole different experience during launch. Game looked beautiful but I had A LOT of fps issues.
When we got 1.04 I did notice a lot of Streaming issues, LOD pop ins, etc. But after installing 1.05 yesterday the game runs fine and I don't notice any pop ins and streaming issues at all.

Now those screen comparisons of 1.05 to 1.00/1.02 both look fine too me, Yes I agree the 1.00/1.02 had some better volumetric lighting and probably a lot more but the 1.05 looks perfectly fine to me, especially with it running A LOT smoother now.

So I could make a topic about this being the exact opposite reaction of all you guys.

Seriously they are trying and they did fix a lot of things, you guys are acting like this is the ******* salem witch hunts or the EA Battlefront issues. Not everybody has these issues and you can scream that "A lot of people are saying the same" does not mean everybody sees it. The people that honestly are not seeing the issue are not being vocal about it.

Now... let's all just calm the hell down and try to solve this by waiting for Ubi's reply. They obviously are here reading stuff. If you feel they wronged you then fine but don't for an instance think that everybody feels the same. Keep posting your issues and wait for a reply

I’m glad to see that the game patches have done some good for some people. If you don’t have any of all these issues, that’s really great and I hope you will enjoy playing as most as you can. And you’re right by saying we should wait and see what Ubi will do for those who have worse issues after downloading 1.03 (even though I’m the first to understand the frustration it does to see a beautiful game become... much less beautiful)

I wish I knew why people encounter problems that some absolutely do not, even though they have the exact same console and the exact same game...
Anyway, do enjoy for those us guys who are in the waiting for a fix ;)

Thanks to all of you who pointed out that the 'downgrade' is not a downgrade, but a bug. Also, thanks to the people that don't see, like me, what a lot of the fuss in here is about. They are not making the graphics worse with every patch, the game looks exactly like 1.02 in terms of lighting. I have played some 4 hours yesterday with the new patch and have to say I am overall really pleased with the small, but notable fixes.

Everyone else who cannot stop, for the love of god, to state that things are getting worse with every new patch or that sees a downgrade, up to this point in time, should really get themselves sorted out. There is no conspiracy, there is no downgrade, there is no worsening of graphics with the new patch. Everything is fine and it will get better in due time. The game looks absolutely stunning, still, and always will!

I just want to point out a thing, just using your comment because a lot of people are using Ri0t's screens as "perfect examples"

Have you compared his pics, enlarged, against each other?

If not, I will summarize for you:

Not all of his pics are in the same place or viewing angle -> a lot of the differences come purely from the different viewing angle, compare the first two shots with Senu flying over Kyrenaika

Not all of his pics are on the exact same place -> best example is the comparison from Leander's Villa. In the 1.05 pic, he is at Leander's Villa. In the 1.00 pic, he is further down the hill, so that a lot of details are different, namely the farm on the right side of the picture. This is not an issue with streaming or pop-in, it is shot from a few steps further down the hill!!!!

Not all of his pics are at the same time -> although he says otherwise, this is most clearly visible on ALL OF THEM. It is evening in the 1.00 pics (note the purple and reddish hue) and is morning/before noon in the 1.05 pics (note the very bright sunlight)

Last but not least, please compare the pics with the view towards Alexandria (I think it's Lake Mareotis) -> you can see that ships and buildings look EXACTLY THE SAME IN THE DISTANCE IN 1.00 AND 1.05 -> which proves there was no downgrade at all

Sorry guys, the pics are actually the best example to see that nothing has changed from 1.00 to 1.05

My only real issue is buildings and the environment loading in front of me in about 10 seconds or so. They already said it was a visual bug and are working on it so I kinda left it at that, I never really thought it was on purpose. I'm still finding little things in the game that still amazes me. I jumped in the water and saw that the algae parted around me, made me think that's pretty cool lol

They were BOTH at sunset ...
jesus ... if the 1.05 would be at morning/before noon then the sun would have been BEHIND Senu and all shadows on the trees would be pointing towards the opposite direction ... but you can clearly see that in both pics the shadows are pointing in the same direction and Senu is flying TOWARDS the sun ...

and especially your claim the 1.05 would be in the morning ... I am flying DIRECTLY INTO DIRECTION WEST ... and you see a sun in the background ... even a little kid can tell you that the sun sets down in the west, right?
So how can this be at morning when there is a f*cking sun setting down in the west?????

Besides this quick explanation of, I don't know, pure physics hahaha, it's clear our friend ThroneOvSeth didn't play the game before 1.03. How else can he make such claims as the game will get better and there is no difference in color, lighting and so on? I will just leave it at this. Every forest has it's dry branches. Why bother?

On the other hand, the thing that really annoys me is why isn't this issue advertised more? Why aren't sites like Gamespot, IGN, Eurogamer saying anything? They threw crap at EA for what they did, but regarding this... Silenzio Stampa. Is this deliberate? Were they paid hard money to keep their mouths shut? I don't get it. Reply my comment Ubisoft and say that it's not true! I dare you! ;)

Not looking good for a fix any time soon guys, just looked at the known issues and it now says under investigation. It said working on a fix for ps4 before. Seems like a step backwards to me. Hope im wrong!

In terms of draw distance, Ghost Recon wildlands is an amazing example (ps4 pro). They should let the guys from Paris take a look at this :)

I must say. The draw distance in Ghost Recon Wildlands is spectacular on my laptop as well.

I just copy my post from diffrent thread on this forum i dnt have strenght to post anymore. Ubisoft just kill this game already it will be faster.

Now on xbox with patch 1.05 graphic is tragic it was better with 1.04.Grass,smal stones and objects grow in front of player,ground looks like plasctic model and textures load few seconds showing awsome low poly objects. Idk how but they downgrade this game even more.

Guys, I noticed like you that the Known Issues thread regarding the graphical downgrade has been set back to ‘under investigation’. I think that an old lay-out has been updated. Almost positive about that benauwd the inventory corruption due to mission ‘Ambush at sea’ has been fixed with patch 1.05. It says so in the patch notes. If you go to Known Issues thread now then you will see that this inventory bug will be patched in an upcoming title update. This is obviously incorrect as it already has been fixed and makes me think something went wrong with the update of the Known Issues thread.

So, Ubisoft, can you please give us an update on the fix for ps4 and adjust the Known Issues thread to the correct state.

Ok guys, I made a mistake in observation... still, I just want to make clear I played the game before 1.03, I posted in this same thread and was talking with Riot before... learn your nicknames, guys!

I am on your side regarding the bugs and issues, but I made some comparisons with 1.02 screenshots I still had myself. And found out, apart from the lighting differences, that all effects are still present in the game like in 1.02. The draw distance, LoD bug and low resolution textures/streaming issues are real and I can find them in my game easily, so you are absolutely right there. But in terms of volumetric effects, ambient lighting, particles, etc. the game still looks like 1.02.

So if Ubi would FINALLY fix the bugs introduced with the first console patches, everything would be back to normal again!

I will try to upload some pics later for you, I had a hard time finding differences between my 1.02 and 1.04 shots, really ;)

The lighting effects are still great. I have to stop and stare at times, especially when you get that beautiful red mist in the air during sunset.

This is most likely incorrect as it already has been fixed and makes me think something went wrong with the update of the Known Issues list.

Also the ‘Graphical changes due to patch 1.04’ has been set back to ‘under investigation’. Before it was listed as ‘working on a fix for ps4. I also remember ubi-banshee (or at least someone from Ubisoft) posted that you guys replicated the bug and are working on a fix.

Please can you update the Known Issues list correctly and give us the right state of the progression on the Graphical bug fix (LOD, draw distance etc.) and maybe give an ETA?
We’re all eager to play the game in full glory.

Ubi-Keo
Thnx in advance.
Thank you for your message. I apologise that the known issues list has not been updated, we will get this updated as soon as we can.

In regards to the graphical issue, unfortunately we have no further information at this time, however I can confirm that the team where able to reproduce this and are currently working on a fix

Well I guess there's still a little hope. How long its taking them I just hope we get the fix before the xmas holiday 😁

Exactly.

I just want to make clear that it is really only LoD and texture streaming that is broken since the patches. Everything else, believe it or not, is in the game since 1.02. Particle effects, lighting conditions, volumetric fog and clouds, all in there and still kicking and beautiful. Playing for longer periods of time without using the time-changing skill as well as visiting other areas will show you that most effects are dynamic and work together with different variables, such as time of day, location, etc.

They just updated the known issues list, without touching the graphics item unfortunately. Still left as 'under investigation' after previously being listed as 'working on a fix'.

I'm still pretty sure, there never was any downgrade at all, all these issues were present from the beginning, even in the first gameplay shown at e3. Just take a look at the environment and distant objects and you will see, that the pop-in and aggressive lod were already there.

In 4K on the PS4 Pro it looks so sharp they did really a great job. I remember patch 1.2 lol. Or the WORST one patch 1.05. I played really a lot on patch 1.02 but the current version looks just beautiful in HDR.
Have a nice day!

Can not agree with you on this.
Ubisoft has done nothing to solve the graphics downgrade (bad LOD, bad texture pop ins, not working anisotropic filtering of ground textures).
I play on Xbox One X which has dynamic resolution from 1800 to 2160p regarding to eurogamer, and yes there are some areas where textures are sharp... BUT there are so many areas where textures are just blurry... and i am not talking about the slow loading textures which is still a problem, but Ubisoft seems to ignore it, but textures that stay blurry.

Ubisoft is lying as usual.

Nobody has bought the digital version? It comes with 1.02. I thought by now someone would have done a comparison to see what has changed.
