@cyberpsychosis Yeah, same here playing on 9900K and 2080 Ti. Everything on highest settings and running well but just looks terrible compared to Odyssey.
Real shame as I had such high hopes for this game. Maybe a hint that the new consoles are still crap compared to top end PC's and they just haven't bothered to enable view distance enhancement for PC, which would be very lazy and not like AC games. Why go backwards? This game looks worse than Origins never mind Odyssey (which both looked fantastic) - this is nowhere close. Also the combat is sooooo much worse than Odyssey - seriously Ubi - why downgrade so heavily??
I'm still going to play it and love the inclusion of fishing, even though it doesn't come close to other UBI title Far cry in that respect; all fish in the vicinity dissapear completely after you catch 1 and you have to keep spamming the space bar to reel that one fish in which is a pain in the [censored] compared to far crys system which was perfect.
Anyway back to graphics - big shame UBI. I bought the gold edition as well because of how great your last two titles were but this is just nowhere close. It is like like a B-tec company was asked to copy assassins creed for a crap system and just put in the bare minimum for gameplay. Dual wielding becomes null and void if shields are useless (everyone will just dual wield and the that's just the norm so why not just have that - not really roleplaying if there is only one good option).
@acid_mars Couldn't agree more with what you've said.
Unfortunate because I had very high hopes for this game.
You better damn well be able to side with the anglo-saxons after all this BS or I will be done with AC for a bloody long time.
ps. this is coming from somebody who didn't hesitate to buy the gold edition because of how good the last two games were (on PC at least - can't speak for console users).
Such a shame that they have released this half baked turd. [UBI loyalist no more after Breakpoint and now this]
@siber_sbs Last annoying thing for now (that is incredibly annoying), is using the map - dare to scroll out and it will just warp to a random area down south (nothing to do with where you are or where the mouse cursor is) ..... This could be fixed in minutes and was never an issue in the previous games. Just one more thing that this game has failed in and more frustration for the users.

Ive noticed it too, I thought it MUST have been just me since its VERY weird in this level... the birds flying around look out nests look like wolfenstein 3d polygons or maybe a generation later... the sound mixing is awful, my ears hurt so loud the eivors voice is but the others around are so low, when eivor walks on rocks and cliffs it sounds like shes walking on hollow wood... SO SO SO many bugs, the draw distance seem to be a stone throw away, the texture on roof tops where they put "leafs" look like a bad MS paint job... its weird.. its really weird.. and the AI is so so so stupid, i cant believe this went pass the first draft. BUT... i do enjoy it.. im not saying its a bad game, its just weird.
I loved RDR2s graphics, but I love them more now, I really appreciate how difficult it must be and that game came out on PC a year ago, thats next some level [censored]!
(I have everything on max in the graphics department, Ultra, and its SO weird i still hope its just something im doing wrong, some drivers i havents downloaded or something, please let me know if this is just on my computer)

the thing that bother me the most is my settlement
good you can level the houses, you can do some quests for npc's
you can raise your level 1-6
but when you go out raiding you get some building stuff
you go out into the world to collect stuf, now you would think the wealth you collect go to your settlement, but no it go to the region where you loot
wats the point of getting out and scout/loot the hole world if you gain nothing for your own settlement
if you collect some things like the masks you can build some statues, or get some body paints, but i want all the wealth i get
i explored haf england but i already got borred with the game, ody was so much better then this game
Thank you, I agree things look so weird, especially from medium distance. Pop-ins and copy-pasted grass tufts. And that's before we even get to the AI in the game, it's literally worse than games that came out 10 years ago. Everything feels super rushed, so they just added placeholders, but we got stuck with them.
It amazes me how people can't see how poor all of the textures and layouts are. Like living in another universe.

the game also feels unfinished because, well, its unfinished. For example there are many many spaces that they just didn't add anything at all. Take this church for instance, in any other AC game this would be chock full of church stuff and props that represented the time period. however most places are sorely lacking in any detail. It really kills any immersion you may have.
The markets are void of many goods, people's homes barely have anything. Even poor people have things to live. I just don't get it, the world feels dead

I’m playing on a ps4. I don’t know what the other console players are used too, but this game is trash. I have pretty much forced myself to play it for about 12 hrs. I screwed up and bought the ultimate edition, thinking it would be as good or better than the last installments. Why is everything foggy and blurry all the time? Why has my game crashed twice? I’ve played games with bad mechanics, and bad graphics but loved them because the story was good. I’ve played games where the story was trash, but everything looked amazing and worked perfectly. This game here doesn’t hit on anything. It’s all crap. I have to at least attempt to finish it, simply because I paid so much for it. So yeah Ubisoft got one over on me this time. But it won’t happen again. I won’t trust them enough to pre order a game from them ever again. But I’m just one guy so they could care less. I hope those of you that enjoy this, continue to. Those of you that hate it, I’m sorry but you are not alone.

@rumenrs had the same feeling. The skill tree is a mess, assassination animations are slow and weird, item variety is quite bad, no one handed swords, empty areas, no ambient music, not even a box where i can store the few items i found. Funny they seem to be selling weapons and armour for real $€, when there's so few armours in the game.

I spent only 1.5 hours in the game on PC, and I feel the same.
Odyssey was waaay better.
Its difficult to tell, but the movement seems clunky. Somehow I cannot do what I like, I just do what happens to succeed. For example try to jump from a rooftop to something: you will miss 2 out of 3 times.
The footsteps are so annoying that I almost went berserk..
The horse.... OMG the Horse!!! Ok, clearly its forbidden to Ubi employees to lookt at other games, like RDR2.
No loot?! This is surprising indeed.
Also the ingame video feels somehow clunky. As the whole game seems to be unpolished.
Its a big step back after Odyssey.
I feel that they have a serious pressure to release the game for the arriving of next-gen consoles, and this hurry costs dearly. If I had bought it on Steam instead of Ubi store then I would refund it yet.
I hope a few BIG patches will make it better on the long run.
I think you are spot on - it was the rush to release the game in line with the new consoles that has hurt this game so badly.
I would also add that when attacking, the direction (WASD) keys do nothing for the first time in AC - you will keep hitting the same target regardless of telling the game to attack someone who is about to swing at you plus the lag in telling the game to block vs actually blocking is frustrating.
This game in it's current state almost feels like AC light (released for tablets) because of the deadline being unrealistic.
