Ubisoft’s Games’ Next-Gen Improvements Detailed

Ubisoft published a detailed blog post, where they explained how their games will be better on the next-gen consoles.

Watch Dogs: Legion (we will mention the release dates in brackets – PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC – Ubisoft Connect, Epic Games Store -, Google Stadia, Amazon Luna: October 29, Xbox Series: November 10, PlayStation 5 digital/physical: November 12/19 and 24, respectively) will offer ray tracing on both next-gen consoles. The PlayStation 5 will make the audio stronger with the Tempest 3D audio engine, the SSD will reduce the loading times; the Xbox Series’ Xbox DirectStorage will cut the load times. The next-gen upgrades will be free. They didn’t mention frame rates and resolutions for either platform. Hmmm.

Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla (Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Google Stadia, Amazon Luna: November 10, PlayStation 5: November 19) will have 4K and 60 FPS, Tempest 3D audio engine, and reduced loading times on PlayStation 5; the Xbox Series X will have 4K AT 60 FPS (not AND – they used different wording here…), reduced loading times on both new Xbox models, and the upgrade within the console family will be free.

Immortals: Fenyx Rising (PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Google Stadia, Amazon Luna: December 3) will have Tempest 3D audio, haptic feedback via the DualSense, quick loading times, 4K/60 FPS, and even HDR for screens that support it; the Xbox Series X also goes with 4K, 60 FPS, HDR, as well as improved audio via Dolby Almos, not to mention the reduced loading times. Of course, the next-gen upgrade is free.

Far Cry 6 (PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Google Stadia, Amazon Luna: February 18) will have 4K and 60 FPS on both PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series with the usual free next-gen upgrade. Riders Republic (PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Google Stadia: February 25) will have 4K, 60 FPS, HDR, and shortened loading times on PlayStation 5; the Xbox Series X has the same to offer, and the upgrade to the next-gen version is free (PlayStation 4 > PlayStation 5, Xbox One > Xbox Series). Just Dance 2021 (PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Google Stadia: November 12, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series: November 24) will only offer a free next-gen upgrade.

And last but not least, the two live service titles that are already available: Rainbow Six: Siege will have 4K resolution and a 120 FPS frame rate on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, and we previously wrote about For Honor‘s upgrades, but we will recap it: 1080p resolution on Xbox Series S, 4K on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 when these consoles launch. The next-gen patch will arrive in early December to improve the frame rate to 60 FPS.

This recaps Ubisoft’s release schedule until March 2021.
