The two versions are almost similar, for now.
Ubisoft have been under fire recently for their less than impressive Assassin’s Creed Unity. Unity, which is a current gen exclusive, suffers from poor performance such as stuttering and frame rate issues, although we found out that the PS4 version seems to hold itself well when there is a lot going on the screen. But overall, Unity lacked optimization resulting into a mess across all platforms, especially the PC.
Far Cry 4 is Ubisoft’s last AAA game of 2014 and has a lot riding on its shoulder and according to our initial tests, the development team seems to have done an impressive job across the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game. In this initial test we haven’t yet compared the resolution and frame rate but the texture quality and level of detail seems to be the same across both the versions.
Both the versions employ custom anti-aliasing solution with similar lighting and shadow effects. There is not much to choose here since side by side both the versions are almost similar visually. We will delve deeper in the coming days to find out more differences but at the moment it seems like a stalemate.
