GC05: King Kong presentation

GC05: King Kong presentation

Michel Ancel himself was at the Game Convention yesterday to show his very big baby King Kong at the Ubisoft press conference. I have to admit that even if the graphics are obviously based on the PS2 version, I have been really impressed by this game. The gameplay sequence with King Kong was really amazing thanks to how well you feel the power of the king of Skull Island. Another thing worth mentioning is that Michel Ancel also confirmed us that they would try to get the Xbox 360 version out before the end of the year, and that their goal for this version was to get the graphics as close as possible to the movie.

Why is he working on this game then? It really doesn't fit his style ...
He should be designing new creative games! :P

  • droezelke
    droezelke When it's about The Witcher 3, people are more forgiving. Then suddenly 30fps becomes 'fine' (10 minutes ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Megido: Sure. It's your preference, but the only thing I meant was '30 fps is not considered fine on PC'. When WatchDogs, AC: Unity, ... ran below 60 on PC, people say it runs awful. (11 minutes ago)
  • Megido
    Megido But in a game like this, where 60 fpa isnt essential, id rather have it look great and run at 30. But thats just me. (3 Hours ago)
  • Megido
    Megido @droezelke: Depends on what hardware you have, no? I have a computer thats 2 years old, and i can still almost max a game out with above 30. Thats fine by me. Couls lower the wettings to get 60 easy. (4 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Megido: I don't want to sound elitist, but 30fps on PC is not fine. (4 Hours ago)
  • Megido
    Megido also if the nvudia hair crap bogs your fpa down, just turn it off, its barwly noticeable anyway :P (4 Hours ago)
  • Megido
    Megido @cma112087: i can play it fine, well anove 30 fps with most settings on higj, and some on ultra, no fix required. Gtx 780 was a good buy :) (5 Hours ago)
