Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs was released multiple platforms not too long ago. Based on what we have seen so far in terms of gameplay and trailers, the game looks very promising, although its launch was marred by the fact the Ubisoft’s uPlay services was having issues, thus affecting not only those who played the game on the PC, but those who played it on consoles as well.
In any case regardless of the issues, the game looks good and if you’re wondering which platform you will be able to squeeze the best graphics out of, the folks at IGN have put together a video which compares the graphics of all the platforms that the game is available on. This includes the PC, the PlayStation 3, the PlayStation 4, the Xbox 360, and the Xbox One. The PC version has its settings put to Ultra, which basically pushes the game and the machine to produce the best results possible.
The differences are pretty obvious, with next-gen consoles being able to render details more accurately, and also being able to offer up better lighting effects. This isn’t to say that older consoles can’t handle the game, but if you were really concerned about graphics, then perhaps going next-gen could be the way to go.
As for the PC, its graphics set on Ultra seems to be on par with next-gen consoles, with the shadow, lighting, and textures just as vivid and detailed. However we guess putting together a computer with the hardware powerful enough to run the game in Ultra settings might be expensive, and if you already have a console then perhaps that money can be saved, but what do you guys think? Which platform did better in your opinion?
