Ubisoft responded to Portuguese Eurogame that Valhalla will run at minimum 30FPS in 4K.Not sure if there will be other modes yet.

Some people won't like it . But imo for the type of game it is smooth 30 fps works great.

It looked no better than Odyssey and I can run that game at 4k at well above 45 fps and 60 frames if you lower the pointless clouds settings that eat half the frames on a PC that's 2 years old. 30 FPS on a next gen console is not a very good start.

Yeah, I know a lot of us expected this.

Wonder if it will offer a 1080p/60 mode or if it just supersamples 4k/30 on 1080p displays


Well Ray tracing is kinda expensive for performance so maybe RT is causing it to stay at 30 FPS

I need to go backs and read the notes from the DF video but I don’t think RT was in the game’s press briefer

It would be so weird if its 30 fps for a cross gen game without raytracing ,no ?

That's a goddamn joke.
The XSX has more than enough horsepower to deliver 4K60. More than enough.

It probably has but even their current gen games designed around Jaguars are super heavy on PC CPU's so it's no suprise to me they went for 30 FPS. Same thing happened with AC4.


Is becouse cross gen?

In theory cross gen games should have THE BEST performance in console lifecycle.

You realize you will see every game in 60fps as your output right?

Most devs will prioritize graphics over performance. MS Studios will probably do 4K at 60 FPS though just like they mandated 4K for Xbox one X. Also MS has been more willing to push 60 FPS on some games this gen so we will see.

Sony seems to prioritize graphics over performance too so I wouldn’t be surprised if most of their games are 4K30.

If you think this game will RT at 4k on a xbox series X think again.

The engine already runs at 1800p on the XB1X (Origins / Odyssey) with a shitty Jaguar CPU, 6tflop GPU and terrible, slow hard drive.

They better offer Ray Tracing / 30fps or no RT / 60fps or I’ll be going ham with a 380TI instead of a new console lol.

60fps will be the "standard" right? Lol

Thats pathetic if that's the case. You going to drop $500 just for rt then? Ubisoft is trash regardless.

4K/60fps/RT is almost impossible to do on a 2080 Ti w/o DLSS. A 2080 Ti has roughly 14.2 Tflops. XsX uses AMD cards, I doubt they have a upsampling solution like DLSS since they haven't shown any signs of the tech.
Yea i think dose of reality for 4k 120 fps guys is gonna hit soon . Many will prioritise pretty graphics over fps

it's a cross get title, Multiplatform, smart delivery, which developments started months ( years ?) before either XBX or PS released final dev kit .. Full Details on RT version at 4K it's good enough even if locked at 30fps

it's like using Madden or Fifa, to evaluate console performance level

ahahahaha at 4k 30 fps hahahahah.

and people here thought its the second coming. its a fucking 500$ console. do not think it will do miracles. PS5 is even worse lol.

you want real 4k 60 fps ultra on all games ? its PC only. period.

with that being said i am probably still gonna buy SXS and the PS5 day one because in theory both consoles probably cheaper than one 3080 lol

Anyone with half a brain knew 60fps was never going to be standard on next gen consoles. Its just marketing tripe as it is every generation.

If you really want 60fps and want to be sure of it you need to game on PC.

I know it's an open world game and all, but the most recent AC games aren't exactly slow-paced - I think your average Joe gamer would appreciate the smoothness of 60 fps over the bump in resolution from 1440p to 4K at half the framerate....though I guess from a marketing perspective, you gotta have that 4K buzzword in there.

...and maybe it's just me, but on a 55" TV at 7 feet away, I'm hard pressed to even see much of a difference between 1440p and 4K, though that's another can of worms.

Just as I thought. Sticking with PC for multi platform games.


With what hardware are you planning on running this game on Ultra and 4K/60? cause I'll be primary PC, but a year after XSX, at launch XSX should give you the best bang for a gamers buck.

expected in a ubisoft game, we know what next gen consoles are capable of... and thank god they didnt showed AC Valhalla gameplay, wouldnt like to see a downgrade just because their engine isnt well optimised as aslways at the biginning of every generation (wtach dogs, Rainbow Six, AC unity...)

Isn’t there a thread where ms pa boy is saying no comprises and 4K 60fps will be the standard next gen? LOL

it’s the price you pay for uncompressed perfect pixels.

And yet there is hardware in the pc market today that will run it above those settings...
I really hope this is early development musings otherwise ubisoft just managed everyones expectations of next gen big time.
