Hey guys,

I was thinking about the snow and I just realised that the way they've done it must take a lot of power since it's not just a texture.
This worries me because maybe that will mean that the framerate of the game will significantly drop when it's winter and then go up again when it's summer meaning that the summer parts of the game will be a much smoother experience. Also I noticed that in Inside Assassin's creed 3 episode three at one point it was raining quite heavily and the water seemed to be running over the street which can also be a heavy effect to render.

Do any of you think effects like these will cause the framerate to actually noticeably drop causing the game to be smooth as butter when it's summer and sunny but to stutter more during the winter and heavy rain? Or is anvil next so well optimized that there's no difference whatsoever?

I believe the engine is very well optimized. I would worry more about the ammount of discs it may need but you are a ps3 user so you'll have no problems with that.

I'm also worried about this. Since the ps3 always gets worse frame rate.... But, Since they've been working on this for 3 years now. I wouldn't worry too much. They said every version would be on par this time. But I don't know about .frame rate.. let's hope for the best

I wouldn't worry about it, their anvil next engine handles all that.

I wouldn't worry purely because they showed off 3000 NPCS in the Bunker Hill demo on PS3. I am sure PS3 will handle it.

On a decent PC/Laptop it should be fine. :-)

But if they've made it to work on consoles, it should also be fine.

You're right man, didn't even think about that. 3000 NPCS is a lot tougher than a snow effect.

You are all right people, I was just worrying about it because I simply can't really see current gen consoles doing things on this scale smoothly. Since they've shown it running in real time to people and I haven't heard anyone say they noticed a framerate drop at any point it should be fine. I'm probably underestimating anvil next. XD

Also the majorty of the high deformable snow will be in the frontier where there isn't many npc's or houses to render. if the engine or hardware couldn't handle it, it would have been cut from the game.

I do however assume the framerate won't be any better or more consistent than previous ac games.

You dont need to worry,yes it is well optimized .And you can see that winter in frontier is well optimized.

The game is going to be a horrid piece of crap.

I'm happy i just bought a new GPU and it's on pair with anvil next engine for sure :P

I highly doubt they would release it running terribly, its one of their most anticipated games ever, i would assume that means they want it to be perfect.

Have you played Sleeping Dogs on PC, its beautifully optimized, the rain looks fantastic and i was get steady 50-60 fps through it... if its anything like that i'm sure there will be no problems with it

And there's the problem...

Like I've and others have said, it's bound to be fine unless your hardware's crapping up.

See thats weird cause I kind of feel the same. I feel this game is just ahead of its time in terms of gaming in general and taking all this stuff in is hard to come to terms with. It is great!

Graphics suck eggs, Anvil Next sucks eggs..

It's the same feeling watching the new Metal Gear Solid trailer gave me. All these new engines seem very next gen on current gen hardware, it's unbelievable!

It's not how powerfull the current gen is. It's how well optimized things are getting. It's pretty much like the "Ulimited Detail" thing, A world with polygons with the same shape would be imposible to play even on a i7 3600k and GTX 690 ._.
