Watch_Dogs 2 is back on Gamersyde

Watch_Dogs 2 is back on Gamersyde

Because we wanted to see how the PS4 Pro version of Watch_Dogs 2 could handle its framerate with an enhanced resolution, we put it to the test with the help of BlimBlim's plugin. As you'll see, though it depends on the location, there are a few drops here and there, as well as some tearing. In the third video, we focus on the driving aspect of the game, the problem being that the brakes are way too powerful and the steering is even more sensitive and exaggerated than in GTA V. Last but not least, we wanted to show you what the AI is capable of when you start to play with it a bit. It's always quite impressive to see non playable characters react in a somehow realistic way to what is happening.

Note: To record all the following videos, we set up the PS4 Pro at 4K but used our good old capture software in 1080p. What you'll see here is the game downsampled from 4K to 1080p by our capture card.

The AI video is awesome! The game seems to allow you to mess with the ai a lot.

You'll have to wait until the embargo on reviews is lifted.

This is what I don't like in this game, everything is hackable, even a vent hole cover...How can you hack something non digital?

Is there a super sampling option for 1080?
Commented on 2016-11-13 22:44:49 In reply to 2040
On Pro if the console outputs 1080p the game is still rendered at a higher resolution, providing a better image quality (over the normal PS4) with super sampling.

The 1080p videos Davton made with the PS4 Pro are much less blurry than those I captured with the original PS4 (we have 2 of them in the other news article, check them out - download them).

Is there an abundance of N words in this game? Usually if the main character is black there's a lot of N words in the dialogue.

Watch dogs 1 you had the option to turn off dialogue. Is that also available in watch dogs 2?

you could technically be hacking the water system to build up pressure at the point you're targeting? maybe...still seems dumb.

That AI video...surpisingly accurate

I can not stand that either, not all black people use the N word, other than in games where 99% of them use it lol

I wouldn't say 99% of games do that but i get your point

No the characters aren't like that at all. It's not GTA V.

    MrWhite Could you imagine back when arena shooters like Q3A were very popular, and the cunts introduced pay to win bollocks like EA, 2k, Activision et al are doing? Imagine what that would have done. (1 Hour ago)

    MrWhite meanwhile on the other end, some kid who just bought the game is playing as Wigan, but they're playing like Real Madrid and giving your superstars a tanking. Time to dip into your pocket to buy packs (1 Hour ago)

    MrWhite @GriftGFX: But you know it will in some shape or form. It hurts the game by default just by being there in the same way microtransactions and all that other shite does. (1 Hour ago)

    GriftGFX My foremost concern is the quality of game design and user experience. I don't actually care about the exploitation of whales much if it doesn't hurt the game. (3 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX So then top players stop wearing their loot so that they don't get matched with noobs? Sounds like a bad plan. Hopefully anything that implements this stuff leans heavily on ELO first. (3 Hours ago)
