THE GRAFICAL PART 

This subsection of our review highlights the main graphical aspects of this game. Particular attention is paid to the version of the graphics engine used, the version of the API used, graphic settings and the quality of development of the main visual aspects.

SUPPORTED OS AND GRAPHICS API

Watch Dogs: Legion supported Windows 10/11.

steam

The priority and main graphics API for Watch Dogs: Legionr is DX12.

GAME ENGINE

Watch Dogs: Legion is a truly unique game that is part of the Watch Dogs series developed by Ubisoft. This is a popular open-world action-adventure series based on hacking and digital surrogacy technologies. Legion, the third game in the series, was announced at E3 2019 and released in October 2020.

WatchDogsLegion 2020 10 30 11 49 19 630

Game

In Watch Dogs: Legion, the player is immersed in a virtual London, where the city is on the brink of chaos, and technology has become a tool of control and oppression. The game is notable for its revolutionary "Play as Anyone" mechanic, which means players can take on the role of virtually any NPC (non-player-controlled character) in the game. This opens up many strategic possibilities and deepens the player's involvement in the game world.

WatchDogsLegion 2020 10 30 11 51 04 425

Development

Development of Watch Dogs: Legion began immediately after the release of Watch Dogs 2. The creation of the game required significant efforts from Ubisoft to implement the "Play as Anyone" technology. The development team created its own procedural generation system to ensure that each NPC in the game is unique. This includes distinctive character traits, professions, animations and dialogue.

WatchDogsLegion 2020 10 30 11 52 09 926

Technologies

Watch Dogs: Legion is built on the Disrupt game engine, developed specifically for the Watch Dogs series. Disrupt delivers high-quality graphics, physics and animation, as well as a detailed open world.

However, one of the most exciting technologies used in the game is ray tracing. It is a state-of-the-art graphics technology that provides highly realistic lighting, reflections and shadows by simulating the path that light rays travel through the game scene. In Legion, this is especially noticeable in the detail of urban environments, such as the wet cobbled streets of London, which reflect the surrounding lights and buildings.

WatchDogsLegion 2020 10 30 12 35 59 868

Game engine

Legion's Disrupt Engine is a powerful and versatile platform that allows developers to create rich, detailed virtual environments. It supports complex animations, including those used to implement the "Play as Anyone" mechanic, as well as advanced lighting technologies, including ray tracing.

The Disrupt Engine allows Ubisoft developers to create huge city environments with detailed graphics and complex physics systems. This allowed Ubisoft to introduce many realistic elements into Watch Dogs: Legion, such as realistic reflections in water and glass, accurate lighting and shadows, and even texture detail on buildings and other objects.

Ray tracing

Ray tracing is a technology that allows you to create realistic lighting, reflections, and shadows in computer graphics. Instead of traditional methods that use simplified models to calculate lighting effects, ray tracing traces the path of every ray of light in a scene, allowing you to create more accurate and realistic effects.

Watch Dogs: Legion stands out thanks to its use of this technology, especially on next-gen platforms and RTX-enabled PCs. This gives the game a unique and distinctive visual style that sets it apart from other games in the genre.

The lighting in the game looks incredibly realistic, thanks to accurate light reflections from surrounding objects and surfaces. This is especially noticeable in outdoor scenes, where light from the sun or artificial light sources reflects off wet cobblestone streets, glass buildings and other surfaces.

Ray tracing. Has 4 parameters. The difference between "High" and "Ultra" is clearly visible in the reflections (less clear). At “Medium” settings, the nearest puddles are not transparent; it is interesting that a reflection appears on the radiator grille. Since the game has many locations with puddles and wet asphalt, the general changes are clearly noticeable. The texture of the metal changes somewhere, especially visible in the Off setting.

Conclusion

Watch Dogs: Legion is not only a continuation of Ubisoft's impressive action-adventure series, but also a showcase of the impressive technology available in modern game engines. This is a game that uses these technologies to enhance the gaming experience and create a unique and memorable virtual world.

Play as Anyone technology brings a new level of flexibility to gameplay, allowing players to take on the role of virtually any character in the game. This increases engagement and provides an unprecedented level of strategic choice.

Using ray tracing technology, Legion's virtual London is as beautiful and detailed as the real thing. Realistic lighting, reflections and shadows give the city a unique sense of reality and depth.

Overall, Watch Dogs: Legion represents a significant achievement in game development. This is a game that shows how far gaming technology has come and how it can be used to create unique and immersive gaming experiences.

All video cards were tested at maximum graphics quality using MSI Afterburner. The purpose of the test is to determine how video cards from different manufacturers behave under the same conditions. Below is a video of the test segment

 Our video cards were tested at different screen sizes 1920x1080, 2560x1440 и 3840x2160 with maximum graphics quality settings.

In the video card test, the default resolution is 1920x1080; other resolutions are added and removed manually. You can also remove and add any positions of video cards. You can also select any of our test processors from the list in the drop-down menu, comparing its performance with the given video card tests (by default, the most productive solution is selected). The test is carried out on the most powerful CPU in this game and is scaled to other processors, taking into account their testing on NVIDIA and AMD video cards.

Something went wrong, 1440p 37 fps on 6800xt? Come on, better than 50 fps on it

This comment was made by the moderator on the site

Why unbalanced junk? 4070-4070ti-4080-4090 lined up according to the price.

in this price segment, everything below 16GB is not a video card
And if we take into account the upcoming neural compression of textures

magic compression, 3rd coming.
although generating frames with dlss will help

generation also needs video memory. And this is not FPS, but a prop with which your employer is fooling honest people

There’s not even anything to argue about, you’re right for once!

В 1080р и 1440р генерация жрет мало, 400-700 Мб, но если врубить длсс качество, то можно сказать ничего не жрет, в 4К до 2 Гб жрет без длсс. Я на своей 4070 протестил генерацию и могу сказать, что это просто пушка (на самом деле не ожидал, что настолько круто будет), особенно когда 70 фпс и при включении генерации получается 120, под герцовку моника, даже с мышкой при таком фпс сложно почувствовать увеличенную задержку, про геймпад вообще молчу, плюс когда проц тянет например 60 фпс, а видюха может 90, то включение генерации дает 120 фпс, т.е. удвоение, но видюха недогружена и может 150 фпс. Поэтому понятно почему куртка так задрал ценник, жаль только не во allх играх есть генерация, это бы очень помогло людям со слабыми процами в таких играх как челпук, плагтейл с кучей крыс, киберпанк с лучами, джедаи 2 даже без лучей на Кобо, особенно когда там неписей прибавится, или Луне, ласт оф ас. Но плагин для УЕ 5 уже завезли. Что амд так долго медлит непонятно, обещали же во втором квартале 2023 года показать.
It’s no joke about neuro-compression of textures; with this approach, you can make super-detailed textures that will consume little memory, which is important for the popular gamer.

DirectX 11 has more fps, that's the "optimization")))

I just checked: on dx11 fps when focusing on the percentage is 12% higher, when focusing on the gpu the fps is also 12% higher + the video memory is consumed by 1.3 GB less. But on dh11 there are no rays, the game loads noticeably slower and there are much more freezes while driving, on dh12 there is a flat frametime line

Откуда же тебе знать, что на DirectX 11 фпс больше, потому что там нельзя включить РТ. А тут all настройки на максимум.
It's not your thing to be smart.
