All future Ubisoft games will be available on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4, and French publishers will offer a free upgrade from PS4 to PS5. However, there are benefits to those who play titles on Sony’s next-generation consoles. In a repetitive and very interesting blog post, the organization explains what early adopters can expect.
First, Watch Dogs: Legion features ray tracing in the following formats: “Leverage the Tempest 3D Audio engine to hear the sounds of all passing cars, talk about pedestrians, and drones overhead. Bring London to life by flying. ” The loading time is also shortened, and the adaptive trigger is used to increase the “high tension moment”.
Next is Assassin’s Creed Valhara. It has no raytracing, but runs at 60 frames per second in 4K. Again, there is no mention of DualSense adaptive triggers or tactile feedback, but there is support for Tempest3D audio and their fast loading time promises. Immortals Fenyx Rising is about the same story, but seems to be taking advantage of the new PlayStation pad.
Other upcoming games, such as Far Cry 6 and Riders Republic, will run at 60 frames per second each in 4K on the PS5, so this seems to happen repeatedly in cross-generational releases. Overall, as you can imagine, it looks like solid support from Ubisoft. Of course, the EA seems ready to miss the launch altogether, so it can’t be taken for granted.
