When in certain areas, the top half of the screen becomes too bright, as seen here:

It's really annoying and kills the detail the game has going for it. I don't understand why it's in the game and I really would like it to be fixed. Could you people at ubisoft look into patching it, maybe leaving it as an optional toggle for people who might like the effect (don't know how anyone could)? Thanks. Great game other than this visual annoynace.

are you sure it's from the game and maybe not from the tv, maybe try another game and see?

I'm positive it's not my TV. It's a 2 year old Sony Bravia XBR TV, top of the line. I tested Red Dead Redemption, Project Gotham, a few other games, and they all look perfect. Many other people on various forums have reported this issue, just do a google search for Assassin's Creed white gradient. I even changed all kinds of settings for my TV to see if I could tweak it to change anything, but nothing worked. I play the game with absolutely no lights on in my room and it does this, so it has to be the game.

I got the same problem on a sony lcd tv. Tried to change the HDMI cable but didnt changed anything. What is weird is that it seems to come randomly. Soemtimes it's there, sometimes not. I really dont understand why but it's really annoying.

Here's a link on gamefaqs about the same problem. Can any mod notify UBisoft about this ? Thank you.

Same problem here. For me at least, its not just white but it seems to depend on the scenery around Ezio. I've changed the settings on my TV to reduce this problem, but its still there. Its definitely the game.

P.S. As this is my first comment since I started playing the game, I must say the combat its BRILLIANT (fast, fun and killing 2 people in a fluid manoeuvre is awesome.)

I have the exact same problem and it's annoying as hell. Only happens in single player.

I have Bravia XBR as well and had not have this problem once so far!!! Are you guys sure this gme related and not Animus related. Maybe Animus just glitches on you. I mean we all know it's not perfect and sometimes has problems recovering a full memory of event and place:-P

I would blame Animus^^ To to Lucy and tell her to fix this ****;-)

A lot of us have posted the same issue in the ACB Bugs and Issues thread:

It is definitely not the setup, it is the game. Several of us noticed this after unlocking or applying a Uplay outfit, such as Altair's Armor.

It only occurs in the animus, not in the modern time with Desmond. Strangely, some of the cutscenes in the animus do not seem to have this problem.

It is most noticeable during the day, but in dark areas.

I am contemplating deleting all game content and saved games, and starting over NOT connected to Uplay, to see if that helps. If anyone else wants to try this, let us know if it works!

I have the same issue, it seems to only happen during the day; specifically at sun set, and possibly even at sunrise. It also seems to happen only in the animus, this is probably because you are really only outside of the Sanctuary at night. I can understand the intended purpose when outside, but it is unnecessary (and more like a glitch/bug) when you are inside, or in a tunnel/covered area.

I have the same problem and it's really annoying. Brotherhood is a very beautifull game but this issue is killing the effect. I hope this will be fixed very soon.

I thought it would be worth a try to do as you said and not log into uplay. Instead I created a different account on my ps3 just for this test. Unfortunately it didn't change any circumstance. Which is a bummer because this white gradient is starting to give me a head ache.

Same problem here, it's like a white pixelated fog at the top of the screen. I can get rid of it for the most part by adjusting the games brightness ooption, and my tv settings.

But the game looks too dark when I do this, but it's the lesser of two evils at this point.

I have a 32" sony Bravia LCD.
