Far Cry 4 PC Graphics Gimped

A post from Monday on Softpedia highlights comments from Ubisoft's Alex Hutchinson during a recent episode of Major Nelson's podcast about the graphics in Far Cry 4, the next installment in the shooter series (thanks HARDOCP). Alex explains that the game's visuals on the new console systems are equal to those on the PC, in spite of the PC's greater capabilities:

We develop on PC primarily, which is actually unusual. With Assassinís Creed, we develop on console, so we start at that and we push the boundary of the console as hard as we can. But because we develop on PC, youíve never really seen on console the ultra-high PC version before.

So even out of the box, even day one, we just stuck the code on the new consoles and we were able to dial it all the way up. So as a console player youíre already getting by far the best version we can ship.

On a related note, this trailer from VG247 shows about 10 minutes of Far Cry 4 gameplay captured at E3.
