Well, as I stated in the previous post, GR:W went open beta today and I couldn’t wait to test it out. I was honestly afraid to turn it up since my PC is WAY under the minimum specs but I decided to give it a try anyway. To my amazement, the game started up and ran just fine on medium settings at around 25-30 FPS
I took some screenshots so you can see the difference between various settings so here it goes.
Low settings make me feel like I’m playing Just Cause 1 again.
Medium looks pretty decent, totally playable.
I think there isn’t much difference between Medium and High. Maybe just a bit more foliage detail and lighting effects.
There’s a big gap between High and Very High, more vegetation and different vegetation settings come into play as well as other stuff.
Well, and in the end we have the game changer… the ultra settings. That one setting that melts your PC… I know it did to mine. This setting is so powerful that the Uplay crashed when I turned it on.
As for optimization. The game behaves amazingly even on systems that are way under the minimum specs. Don’t expect a stable 60 FPS but if you can manage with 30, then give it a shot. Cheers Ubisoft for finally nailing their optimization, both GR:W and For Honor have amazing optimization.
