Anyways...

The Graphics are like we see there, the only thing is that we are seeing pictures with horrible contrast, you can find the edited pictures around, they look much better and show how the game is. I'm loving the new HUD and they proved that the Anvil 3.0/Next Engine is definitely powerful. Although 25 Bullets in the gun, not sure how I feel about that. Actually, I like it, not have to go back often for ammo, with the reload time it doesn't really matter anyways.

I wonder if the health is one of the white bars that circle around the mini-map and the 3 boxes are types of notoriety.

If you see the one with the Colonists all around notice that the map doesn't note them as allies or really anything, maybe neutral people don't show up or everyone is just unnoticed in a battle.


Oh and a swap weapon ****on? Wuht?

I'm 90% sure the final product won't look that bad.
That would be really stupid, the camera just is terrible/ image quality is no good, and look nowhere as good as we saw in the screens.

However, the descriptions of the gameplay trailer sounds convincing that the animation really is stellar.

Am i the only one who doesn't like the new mini-map? I want to see the actual map layout on it, like in the previous three games,not just a big blue circle with icons on it.
I hope it's like that because the map isn't synchronized yet.

It's not like we are actually seeing anything in the first place, Conner is out in the grass, the only thing to show is that tree and rock next to him.

Yes but in ACB even the paths in the countryside were shown on the map, which was awesome. And from these screens it looks like we can see clouds on the minimap, what's up with that?

If it takes changing around the minimap to make the game better, so be it.

Escoblades said his walk was more grounded, to fit his persona. Apparently his walk is different.

Yeah the screens look quite good considering it's just an alpha build, and they have enough time to polish the textures and draw distance.

i love the screenshots, the game looks very smooth which means when we run the game won't become so choppy when it tries to render the background. Im not going to say its crap because theres still a lot of features we have not seen, I'm positive that the game will impress us,and they still have 6 months for polishing the game

There are no paths though.

Just grass. I don't think those are clouds, that is peculiar, it's on all the shots in the front.

We can't really expect flawlessness. They can only do so much with current-gen technology.

Graphically, they look great, but as a lot of people have said, texturally, they look really flat and completely void of detail. All the bluecoats look the same and there is no detail in their clothing. A lot of things look blocky and like they're just loading in, like the cannon in the one shot. As I understand it, this is an alpha version, but come on. It should at least look smooth. Most devs that come out with their first alpha demo look quite a bit better. And they've had a lot of time to prepare this. I'm just hoping that they use a good amount of the remaining time they have to brush up on textures and detail. The first screens that we saw are beautiful, and I'm hoping to see at least that quality, if not better in the final product. Still disappointed we didn't get actually gameplay though. Guess we'll have to wait till E3 :(

pacmanate

Do not judge the screenshots! They are no even high resolution at all. What I don't understand is how these are leaks seeing as they aren't high quality? Like why would Ubisoft give us low res screens if you know what im trying to say

ACSineQuaNon

Lettuce be reaility, the graphics in the screenshots look terrible. Hopefully these are an extremely early build.

This is a matter of opinion, but I also find the new HUD to be awkward and too "futuristic." The glowing blue of it gives off FPS vibes. I thought they said the point of the HUD was to free up screen space, but it still takes up a lot of room, especially on the right side with the weapon/ammo details.

I also thought that the blues were all one shade and had no texture. Why is this so different from the screens we first got? It cant be cause its an alpha... can it?

Honestly, idk. For me, that's not really an excuse. Look at God of War 3 demo. Everybody gushed over the graphics and detail and they still had of year of development left. That was early alpha. So, to me, alpha's not an excuse for blocky, detail-less textures. But it's not everywhere though. Like in most of them, the grass looks amazing and trees and such in the background look pretty good. And those one's particularly from the facebook link above, the lighting and sun looks fantastic. So idk what the deal is.

The minimap is in the right-hand corner in all previous AC games and the weapons selection is in the left one.

It appears to be the other way around in AC3. Looks weird.

MY *** with the graphics these are just mere screenshots, i have a friend that lives in Boston he saw it at pax he said went in and came out in shock.. he was very impressed with the game.I showed him the screenshots and he says they make the game look worse than it actually is.

GLHS
04-07-2012, 01:55 PM
Oh I believe it. Trust me, most of the time screens don't do the games justice, and I'm in no way saying I'm disappointed in their work. When we all get to see the gameplay and see how smooth it runs, I doubt any of us will be complaining. Just based off of how the screens look, either they're all taken at bad times, or just look weird and the gameplay itself doesn't look that bad. I'm guessing the ladder.

The only thing I'm genuinely disappointed about at this point is the foliage. It still doesn't look much better than in previous games even though nature is supposed to be a very important part of AC3. The awkward ragdolls and lack of texture detail in the NPCs I can live with, I'm sure those things can still be tweaked before release. To me the most important thing they need to fix is the foliage as it'll doubtless stand out the more time we spend treerunning.

i can say that the (updated) pictures look better then before, but they still need to improve the detail on the grass, trees, leaves, rocks/boulders, maybe all the npc/colonist outfits (idk if they all looked exactly the same or not but it kinda looks bland) and some detail on Connor.

JCearlyyears
04-07-2012, 03:28 PM
If you look in the picture on the link, you can see to Connor's right that there are 2 guys who look a lot alike. I hope that it's just because of the crappy picture quality and not that there are 2 people with the same face in such close proximity. Also, don't post the link! Mods said not to.

DavisP92
04-07-2012, 03:32 PM
i really hope they don't have that crap again, that would make me dislike the game more if a lot of the faces are just copies. Revelations had that with almost every recruit it was annoying.

BBALive
04-07-2012, 03:43 PM
The images don't do the graphics justice, Breed's Hill looks like one of the less aesthetically pleasing places in the game, the engine looks powerful, the animation system seems stellar, I'm Indifferent to the HUD at the moment, the ammo capacity doesn't bother me, the textures do seem low-res, but that might be the image quality.

Maybe, maybe not. All I could see was stuff I liked and again the pics were too low res to tell much. It's also possible that they had relatively low graphical settings to boost performance.

They're not postponing anything. They never planned to show any gameplay this early to begin with and tbh, it is very early for gameplay being released publically.

I think he means postponing EVERYONE outside of the "PAX general public" seeing it. I just think that if whats been floating around is true, then we will see something next week. Maybe they're thinking "These guys paid to see it, so they will get an exclusive preview before everyone else", which is fair play.

No, there were 2 different forces, guerrillas and the continental army. The continental army had professional uniforms because they were trying to be respected as an actual army, not just pissed of citizens. So yes, their uniforms will look the same, as every real soldier's uniform looks the same to his comrades. (except for stripes and such for ranking purposes) *I'm in the military, so I'm surrounded by uniforms ALL the time

Hopefully this is early stuff, which I'm sure it is...the textures are bland!!! To me AC1 had the best texture work but was boring in color (though it fit the dark mood of the time period and game). These screens have potential but still hoping for texture work to be better...Also, there's too much of a blue hue to everything...hate it, just tone it down.

And with the pic of Connor in the Frontier where there's like one tree off to the left, I'm guessing that's going to be a more ground based area to run around than the rest of the Frontier? Hope so
