New Assassin’s Creed IV Update uses New Anti-Aliasing Technique


Ubisoft has released a new update patch for the PlayStation 4 version of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag. The latest update will bring the game’s 900p resolution to a full high-definition 1080p, and as well as a new ‘Anti-Aliasing Technique’

The game was originally released at 900p in order to keep the framerate consistent at 30 frames per second. But Ubisoft went the extra mile and used the time after the launch to work on the new update.

Associate Producer Sylvain Trottier explained:

The most important part of this title update is not necessarily 1080p native resolution. It’s the fact that even when we were done with the project, even when we were finished with the certification and everything else, even when most of the engineers had started to work on other projects – like we always do at Ubisoft – some of my engineers continued to work on Black Flag and they even developed a brand-new anti-aliasing technique.

‘Anti-aliasing’ technique, which is used to smooth out jagged edges of polygons in computer-generated graphics.
