Assassin’s Creed: The Temple of the Spirit, The Watchman: Legion, the next generation host version is not true 4K

Assassin’s Creed: The Temple of the Spirit and The Watchman: Legion are Ubisoft’s cross-generational 3A games, after Ubisoft promoted Assassin’s Creed: The Assassin’s Creed and The Watchman: Legion supported 4K/60FPS and 4K/30FPS on next-generation hosts, respectively. But it seems that neither game is really 4K on next-generation consoles.

According to themedia Beyond 3D, the XSX version of Watch Dog: Legion is dynamic resolution, with a minimum resolution of 1440P and some scenes up to native 4K. Similarly, Ubisoft’s publicist toldmedia Dualshockers that the PS5 version of Assassin’s Creed: The Hall of Insinuation would be stretched 4K/60FPS.

Given that the PS5 and XSX are not very different, we can predict that the next generation versions of both games will be stretched 4K, not native 4K. This means that only the PC version is the native 4K resolution.

To be honest, that’s to be expected. As we’ve reported before, The Watchman: Legion native 4K is so demanding on hardware that even the 3090 can’t run at the highest quality at 60 frames.

Media said that the main reason for the release of this report is that many players believe that PS5 and XSX can run these two games in native 4K, but this is not the case, so there is no secret recipe for PS5 and XSX to run these 3A games better than high-end PC GPUs.

Ubisoft’s previous official blog mentioned that Assassin’s Creed: The Temple of the Spirit supports “full 4K/60 frames” between native 4K and not native 4K
