    • Indeed, the water and probably all textures from the environments will look better, but anything else seems to remain the same. It’s a cross-gen title, so it was to be expected. That said, it looks mighty impressive, and I’m pleasantly surprised to see the current consoles holding up so well.


    • if you look closer you notice that the rope on the wheel actually moves “Maybe the textures”….. What are you on about? The PS4 version actually had the ropes on the wheel move when he turned it and when on the zoom out of the ship all of the masts on the ship are moving on the PS4 version. no to mention the clarity you get from the next-gen version you should probably watch it again because there is a lot that makes the PS4 version far better.
