Far Cry 4 PS3 vs. PS4 vs. PC Ultra Image Comparison Shows A Solid Effort On All Platforms

Far Cry 4 is a brand new entry in the open world first person sandbox adventure from Ubisoft. It is utilizing the same engine as Far Cry 3, internally called as Dunia Engine. While Far Cry 3 was a terrible mess on the PS3 and Xbox 360, its successor is surprisingly a decent port on the previous generation platforms. To start off, there is no screen tearing unlike the constant annoying tearing of Far Cry 3 on Xbox 360 and PS3. The graphics are decent enough considering the age of the hardware, and aside from the performance dipping during some taxing scenes, the rest of the port shows a good effort from Ubisoft.

You can check out a few slider comparisons below between Far Cry 4 on the PS3 versus PS4 (Left = PS4, Right = PS3).

The above comparison shows the graphical difference between both platforms quite clearly.

The PC version of the game is also well optimized and can run quite decently on a mid-range PC. We tested the game running on a Core i5 4670 clocked at 3.4 GHz and a GTX 760 2 GB. We were able to max out the game easily at the Ultra quality preset.

It is interesting to see how the PS4 version of the game compares to the Ultra quality on PC. You can check out the slider comparisons below to see how they both stack up against each other (Left = PC, Right = PS4).
