AC IV: Black Flag technical trailer shows off PS4 tech


Alright hardware geeks, this one is for you. I can say that with confidence because the narrator for this trailer throws out big, confusing terms like “compute shaders” and “real time light probe baking”. I have no idea what he’s talking about, but oooh pretty!

If you’re wondering what sort of fancy next-gen stuff you can expect on Sony’s new console, then this is worth checking out. There isn’t much in the way of new gameplay footage, but there’s lots of examples of technology improvements. Those individual raid drops sure make the Caribbean monsoons seem a lot more atmospheric.
