It is 1715. Pirates rule the Caribbean and have established a lawless republic. Follow the adventures of a young, cocky and fearsome captain Edward Kenway whose skill with a sword and disdain for authority earn him the respect of pirate legends like Blackbeard, but thrust him into the ancient conflict between Assassins and Templars that threatens to destroy everything the pirates have built.
Ah, the beauty of SweetFX. It’s no stretch to say that SweetFX is a useful tool that all PC gamers should be using. As we’ve already said in our Performance Analysis, Nvidia’s TXAA tech does an incredible job eliminating jaggies. However, this AA solution blurs the whole image, thus resulting in inferior image quality. Therefore, we decided to counter this blur side effect with the power of SweetFX. Do note that our settings will be ideal to those using TXAA or FXAA (as those AA solutions bring the annoying blur side effect). In order to improve the game’s visuals, we’ve sharpened the whole image (thankfully for all of you, our sharpening settings are not as high as in our previous SweetFX settings), we’ve made lights a bit brighter, and we’ve enhanced the colors in order to give a more natural look to the environments (notice for example that the sky is more blue-ish now). Enjoy the following comparison.
