So, are these hands-on previews or what? Too early for next-gen hands on I suppose...?

Thanks for posting them OP

A pet peeve of mine though; can we not label PR bullshots as 'leaked'?

OT: I hate the awful depth of field effect in this game already , seems like it has a really really poor draw distance in all of the videos and screenshots shown.

Well basically I think there is still an embargo on those screens but Machinima.com decided to upload them to their Flickr early .

Hmm, ok. Lets see if its just AC in sheep's clothing.
Yeah... I'm a little concerned at the moment that this is a GTA/AC mishmash and not much else. Hoping for something more.

Too clean, i mean the whole thing falls in an uncanny valley territory.
I think we're gonna be seeing a lot of that this upcoming gen... Deep Down for example had uncanny valley written all over it.

Jesus Christ, look at how smooth everything looks.

Unfortunately, since it's Ubisoft we'll never know if these are actual next-gen/high-end pc screenshots or of they're "a little touched up".

Looking very good!

I get the feeling I'm going to have to upgrade my video card later this year.

As long as it isn't a buggy, underdeveloped mess, I'm down with this game. Looks good.
I expect this from the sequel and will keep my expectations as low as possible for this one..

Might be just another one of those Ubi games where the ambition is much bigger than the end product will be.

Ubi sure does know how to release bullshots. The game looks great, but it won't even look that smooth on a Titan...

I'm intrigued by this game. It seems so good (the concept / story really matches the sandbox type game) but I have a bad feeling about it being rapidly boring and repetitive like Assassin's Creed :(

I want to read more about it and I want more gameplay videos so :

previews previews previews previews, yay !

Everything looks quite cold and sterile.
Yeah PC graphics just look so sterile and angular. I prefer my non-physically accurate shaders, sub 720p, sub 30fps experience.

I think it looks so "sterile" due to the really clean bullshot lack of aliasing and the lack of bloom on the lighting. I like that actually.

Why you gotta be such a blockhead?

I was referring to the art style utilized in this game. Doesn't excite me one bit. "Generic" is so overused as a term to describe games, but that's what pops into my head as I watch these screens.

And no lens flares from every single light source

Did not want to be a blockhead.. sorry :(

I think it is just trying to achieve an almost hyper real look. Hard to pick out the artstyle if it is just going for realistic rendering.. that is beyond the character designs.

I really hope there will be some early comparisons between the different platforms. Curious to see if my PC build will provide a better experience then the Durango/PS4 versions.

Ubisoft, confirm once for all that this game is playable offline.

Then my interest could return.

No, but some of us have seen a fair chunk of the game.

It kind of is. Right down to the camera movements, like the gentle zoom and lock to an important target (you see it in the gameplay video when Aiden confronts that angry boyfriend).
It uses lots of different gameplay elements though. If anything, it feels closer to GTA than AC.

Looks ok I guess.

If this is supposed to be the flagship title for next gen, then I'm not impressed.
