Ubisoft discusses the power of Sony's impending platform
Much like Watch Dogs, Ubisoft is aiming to use the power of the PlayStation 4 to make its cross-generation sequel Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag shine. Speaking as part of a video interview on the PlayStation Blog, associate producer Sylvain Trottier explained that the console’s added horsepower will allow the company to add more effects to its nautical jaunt.
“All of the little details that you can’t put on the current generation of consoles are going to make the game more beautiful and immersive,” he said. “It’s the overall PS4 experience that’s going to make the title look so much better.”
Trottier added that the impending platform’s social functions will enable the developer to blend the single player and multiplayer experiences. “Your friends are still going to be there even if you’re playing in single player,” he continued. “It’s going to be a nice evolution in terms of the gaming world.”
The executive concluded that it’s down to developers to make the PS4 sing. “The beauty of working with Sony on this console for this generation was the fact that it was built for the game makers," he noted. "We have a perfect jewel in our hand, and it’s up to us to make it shine.”
