Assassin's Creed Valhalla
Wrath of the Druids
Typical druid sorceress in full heavy armor and two-hander...well it works I suppose.
Some of the lighting conditions somewhat reminds me of Acre in the first Assassin's Creed game.
LODs and geometry detail for distant shots isn't the easiest but the fog helps for this one.
Druid areas often have this fog effect works pretty well for alternate lighting conditions.
And lastly the Irish Woot-hound...
EDIT: One more.
The sunlight here worked really well.
AC:Valhalla looks stunning at times.
Yeah the problem I often have is the lower texture resolution of the terrain and the geometry quickly reducing to the lower LOD levels making sweeping scenic shots somewhat complicated when it looks stunning followed by polygonal edges and simplified mesh complexity, reduced texture details or basic terrain vertex painting instead of texturing.
Tech wise it's a really impressive showcase so I'm looking forward to seeing what the teams at Ubisoft can do with the PS4 and XBox One no longer part of the requirements and overcoming some of these limitations and compromises.
It is however also a bit unstable but that's introduced by one of the earlier updates hopefully with that resolved I might be able to stabilize ReShade usage again at least slightly mitigate the temporal anti-aliasing blurring and a few minor shader effects too.
Yea Odyssey and Valhalla are great looking games but damn, they really need a new engine.
16k, native 8k w/resolution scaling 2
Days Gone in 4k.
Days Gone looks really impressive, wasn't expecting it to clean up that well from running at a higher resolution even if the PC port also has some enhancements like draw distance improvements but it certainly did.
EDIT: Oh no wonder, better effects, additional effects, higher quality textures in addition to LODs and the announced features. Nice!
sometimes I pause for a second and remember the days of quake and first max payne,then compare them to current new gen games.
Really sorry if i've uploaded wrong im not sure how to set it to a smaller size and then the full size when clicked on.
Survivors will be shot again.
