    So guys, how is the game? I've noticed in some gameplay videos there's this horrible brown tint to graphics in certain scenarios.

    It looks worse than 2014 W3.

    Don’t know, for me with that resolution scaler set to 100 at 4K I have this “not so clear image” it looks like crap, like it’s not full resolution.

    Anyone encountered this ?

    The actual irl English countryside looks worse that W3. Because W3 is a fantasy world.

    You're comparing sunlight&blue skies to greyish English fog? Not quite fair innit? ;)

    Okay i just wanted to test something, and the results were interesting indeed! Basically i was thinking that the game might actually mostly be bound by ram bandwidth... and lo and behold, it is.

    These are the specs for my ram setup with 4 sticks of ddr3 2133 mhz cl11 - has nearly 60 GB/s due to quad channel, so on par with high quality ddr4 in dual channel in that regard.

    [​IMG]

    So tested the game at 1080p ultra settings with the cpu and memory configured as above

    [​IMG]

    Then i tested again, but with memory set to 1333 mhz cl 9

    [​IMG]

    I then tested again, but without cpu OC (stock), and memory set to 1333 mhz cl 9

    [​IMG]

    So basically cpu OC made no difference, where as memory makes quite a big difference. At least on my setup.

    And obviously my 3090 strix was no where near being gpu bottlenecked at 1080p.

    I got my 2 sticks of DDR4 Ram running at 2900Mhz. Above that and windows gets errors even on desktop.

    I suspect there's an offset to it's internal rendering res - so the 100% is actually much less than 100% of whatever you've selected as your resolution.

    I'd perhaps look into getting some better memory modules if i were you :) 3600 mhz cl16 ones, or better

    Only thing i'd say i wish was higher quality in this game, is the same thing as in the previous 2 assassins creed games... textures. They are appallingly low quality up close. Ironically unity actually has higher texture quality up close, despite being 7 years old now.

    I suspect it's cause they do their texture master for consoles, which greatly limits how much vram they can use... so high textures are just the same as console, and the res gets lowered with medium and low. Kinda hope they do a high res texture pack for pc, but they haven't with previous games, so seems doubtful...

    It's very noticable on especially the ground, but also some objects, like this big rock in the middle of the village.

    Some sharpening would help with those blurry textures. Use NVIDIA's sharpening tool or an injector, such as reshade.

    Sharpening helps if the image is blurry, not if textures are low res...

    Should be Volumetric Clouds.

    Also, why the hell doesn't the game have longswords?
