Assassin’s Creed IV PC to be Based on PS4/Xbox One Version

It may face a delay but it'll be worth it with DX11 and tesselation support.

If you’ve noticed, the PC version of Ubisoft Montreal’s Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag won’t be launching alongside the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions on October 29th, instead releasing in Q4 2013. Community Developer Gabriel Graziani confirmed the reason why on Twitter, stating that the PC release will be based on the next gen versions releasing on the Xbox One and PS4.


Graziani stated that the PC version will have a visual quality similar to that of the next gen releases, Ubisoft is also working on adding PC-specific features such as Direct X 11 support and TXAA. All of this takes time of course, which is the reason for the game’s delay.

But hey, it’s a better reason than the decision to implement DRM when Assassin’s Creed II released.

Meanwhile, the PlayStation 4 version of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag releases on November 15th in North America and November 29th in Europe, with the Xbox One version launching with the console on November 22nd.
