Yeah i feel the same about graphics. Feels kinda blurry sometimes, and textures are not detailed. The image in odyssey was much more sharp. I have RTX 2080 so i'm not 'early adopter'

I forgott to update my gpu drivers and had [censored] graphics until i updated it. Have you updated your gpu drivers?

Sadly I must agree. I am too little bit dissapointed with the graphic quality of the game. Well more then dissapointed is that maybe I have expected much more since this is a new console generation launch title and we should see some nextgen graphics, but there is basically no improvement against Odyssey.
Draw distance is still terrible, lod textures are really bad, especialy vhen you flying your eagle and looking at the landmass around it looks even worse then in Odyssey. And the biggest problem are the textures on characters and their clothes/armor, they look worse than in Odyssey, why the hell we have only high setting on textures and not ultra ? I am running at ultra at average 80FPS so my PC can handle a little more sweat.
I dont know it looks like the PC version is downgraded same as Xbox One and PS4 versions and I dont know why. Really hope they release some HD texture pack in the future.

Make sure in game, Resolution Scale is at 100%. My 2080 was defaulted to 50% and graphics were not as good as expected. I would not go beyond 100% unless you have 16GB gpu.

Playing on PC. So far I think the graphics are about on par with Odyssey, not a huge improvement in all honesty apart from maybe the draw distance being a bit further. Witcher 3 from 2015 still looks way better with much sharper textures and visual fidelity. What is much much worse is performance. Odyssey runs very smoothly. In Witcher 3 I can get about 120 FPS consistently without any issues. In this, framerate is all over the place for no apparent reason, with inexplicably wild swings from 75 down to 40 with huge frametime dips down to about 10 every now and again. Which I wouldn't mind if it didn't look worse than a game from 5 years ago.
So whilst I don't mind the graphics, albeit they're not that great compared to other games in recent years, the horrendously inconsistent performance for no apparent reason is making it nigh on impossible to keep playing until some sort of optmisation patch drops for PC.
It's definitely a PC issue. On consoles this thing seems to run very slick.

Yes there is a weird blurriness to everything, its not sharp at all and the lighting in the first region is very flat. My resolution scale is set to 100%, playing on 1440p. I just booted up Origins to compare and feel like even Origins looks sharper. Plus it runs a lot better than Valhalla. I really wish they could have added DLSS to this game, it really needs it considering how bad it is optimized.

@pierreangelique Origins looks better than Valhalla and Odyssey, but its maybe because of the setting I guess that the desert regions are easier to look amazing then grass/forrest or snow. But yeah the lighting is weird and was even in Odyssey. At day or night it looks amazing, but at dawn or sundown it looks really washed out and ugly like they dont know how a realistic sundown looks at Ubisoft. I always have to meditate when sundown is up cause I just cant look at the ugly visuals .

Graphics looks great, I love their attention to detail too. Not sure what the OP sees but mine are stunning.
The graphics in this game easily dethrone RDR2 for best graphics in any game.
The light and LOD is just picture perfect and an upgrade to any gameplay trailer shown. Let's hope Ubisoft keeps delivering on that level in terms of graphics and of course ups its gameplay to a similar standard.

I can understand complaints about some graphical features, especially character models, but saying the entire game is ugly or worse, is a gross exaggeration, imo.
I agree. Especically after just finishing Horizon Zero Dawn on PC, this game looks and feels very last-gen. The trees and plants feel 2d and move in the wind like a stiff piece of pasta.
the animals/birds are on rails and always fly into things. The birds wings flapping are running at like 5fps and are incredibly unnatural. The way water reacts to, well, ANYTHING is very poorly executed. Have you seen when a whale jumps up and splashes down? I literally laughed out loud the first time I saw it it was so bad.
Hoping some patches come out to fix all this
@sinfuldantheman I cannot agree, Horizon Zero Dawn looks super unrealistic with flat and bloomy last-gen lightning, muddy and repetitive textures, sparse and flat vegetation, plastic looking water, low poly geometry, blurred skybox.
The level of detail and graphic features are worlds apart.
Horizon Zero Dawn looks so game-ish, like a Skyrim or FarCry mod to my eyes (might be that you prefer that rendering look).
In AC:V, you have a much more photo realistic look, there is finally no overcast but sharper light.

Playing on XB1 and the landscapes look pretty good but the character models are god awful. Genuinely feel like I've been ripped off, was going to continue playing anyway seeing as I bought it but 9 hours in and all my saves have been wiped out so think I'm just going to trade it in. Feel so frustrated as I loved Odyssey so was so pumped up for this but actually gutted with how it has turned out.
I just noticed, this game takes place in what is basically a big wet swamp. but you dont even LEAVE ANY FOOTPRINTS in the mud. Also you never get any MUD ON YOUR BOOTS.
This completely blows my mind. Leaving footprints has been basically a shoe-in (pun) in any decent game from the last 5 years. That's just one more example of what seems like an incomplete, rushed game that is very last-gen in many of its graphical features.
@cnrjay don't bother. At this point people are just trolling. They cannot accept that Ubisoft is the company that just released a game with the to date best open world graphics. To be honest, it came to a surprise for me too when I started up the game for the first time, but all of us who actually played the game (on PC), know this for a fact.
I mean, look at this LOD. It is literally like a painting.
And the detail in just one picture like in no other game.

@gcc1984 well some of dont play on PC. Graphics are pretty good. Outside animus looks more realistic than in animus but my opinion but still looks good.
I dont normally get on forums. I still play on console currently.
Finding glitches but outside that & overall problems with changes in game. Its ok.
@sinfuldantheman Valhalla leaves foot prints in some of the mud by the way but we anyway already established that you are trolling.
Just keep lying to yourself.
please remind me when you saw these type of realistic graphics in any other game?
@Chevy_man2010 I didn't mean any disrespect to console players, its just that I can only speak for PC as that is the only experience I have in Valhalla.
