Ubisoft, the developmental team behind Assassin's Creed 4: Black Flag, are diligently working to create the best possible game for the PC.
"We are very proud of the PC version of Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag," said Sylvain Trottier, the Associate Producer of the game on Ubisoft's blog. "The game runs well on low-end PCs, and lots of additional features were added for higher-end machines, allowing each and every customer to fully enjoy the experience on their PCs. Our partnership with Nvidia that saw our respective engineering teams work together to develop a highly optimized PC version also demonstrates our commitment to the platform."
Trottier cites that the PC platform is something that will work best for the team because every developer works behind a PC, and console versions of games begin their life on the computer. Also, with the Xbox One and PS4 so advanced, they are almost on par with the PC already.
PC screenshots of the game were recently revealed on Imgur, after a gamer uploaded his pictures to the site.
The user was able to play with the settings of the game and was able to get it to run on 1080p and 60 FPS, but every now and then they noticed a dip in graphics, according to GamingBolt. They used V-Sync to improve the graphics and ran the game on GTX 670. See the images posted by Imgur user, MangoTangoFox here.
The PC version of the game launched the 19th in the U.S. and in Europe on the 22nd. The game previously launched for the PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii U on October 29.
Black Flag beat out Battlefield 4 in opening week sales, but both sold less opening copies than their predecessors in the U.K. Despite the lower numbers this time around, both games managed to capture the top two spots in game sales.
