Ubisoft released an official statement concerning the recent controversy surrounding the deactivation of “E3” settings for the PC version of Watch Dogs discovered by the PC modding community. The company admits they’ve deactivated the settings, but claims it was due to “possible impacts on visual fidelity, stability, performance and overall gameplay quality.”
Ubisoft has also addressed the conspiracy theory in which people claimed the deactivation was intended to downgrade visuals to keep the game from outperforming Xbox One and PS4 versions of the title.
Ubisoft’s CEO rehashes the same statements over again with the Wii U in a new interview with CVG. He says that Nintendo will have to sell more systems if they want to get more games, and if they don’t, they won’t have as much games on the system.
There was a lot of controversy surrounding the visual downgrades for Watch Dogs when compared to the original E3 reveal in 2012. A recent discovery made by The Worse at Guru3D probably won’t help settle down the problem, especially for PC owners of the title, since some “E3” settings still included in the PC game revealed Ubisoft has deactivated these settings, which allows the similar visuals as seen in the 2012 E3 reveal. When reactivated, some users have claimed the game looks drastically nicer, and actually enhances the performance on Ultra settings for the PC.
Sony has announced that PS3 and PS4 players who purchase Far Cry 4 will be able to invite their friends to multiplayer bouts, even if they don’t have the game.
