BASIC INFORMATION ON THE GAME

Anc Win64 Shipping 2018 05 17 21 18 10 956

Release Date : May 22, 2018
Genre : Strategy, RTS
Developer : Destructive Creations
Publisher : 1C Game Studios

Ancestors is a real-time strategy game set in medieval Europe with a strong focus on tactics. Campaigns for four nations are presented: Vikings, Anglo-Saxons, Germans and Slavs.

To win, you will have to correctly distribute resources, rebuild your base, rob and capture enemy villages and cities. Ancestors uses the Unreal Engine 4 engine. The cinematic action camera will make you feel like one of the fighters.

THE GRAFICAL PART

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

SUPPORTED OC AND GRAPHICS API

Ancestors Legacy is supported on Windows 7/8 and  Windows  10.

steam

The priority and primary graphics API for Ancestors Legacy is  DirectX 11 .

GAME ENGINE

The basis for Ancestors Legacy was the Unreal Engine 4 game engine, developed and supported by Epic Games.

Thanks to his work, each playthrough of the game is unique and inimitable, which increases the replayability of the game. The first game created on the engine - Unreal - appeared in 1998. Since then, various versions of this game engine have been used in over a hundred games, including Deus Ex, Dishonored, Lineage II, Thief: Deadly Shadows, Postal 2, the Brothers in Arms series, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six, as well as in the well-known game series Unreal and Unreal Tournament from Epic Games themselves. Being adapted primarily for first-person shooters, the engine was also used to create games of other genres.   

Anc Win64 Shipping 2018 05 17 21 19 44 622 

Written in the high-level C++ language, Unreal Engine 4 allows you to create games for most operating systems and platforms: Microsoft Windows, Linux, Mac OS and Mac OS X, Xbox, Xbox 360, PlayStation 2, PlayStation Portable, PlayStation 3, Wii, Dreamcast and Nintendo GameCube. In December, Mark Rein demonstrated Unreal Engine 3 on the iPod Touch and iPhone 3GS. In March 2010, the engine was demonstrated on the Palm Pre communicator based on the webOS mobile platform. 

To simplify porting, the engine uses a modular system of dependent components: supports various rendering systems (Direct3D, OpenGL, Pixomatic; previously supported Glide API, S3 Metal, PowerVR SGL), sound playback (EAX, OpenAL, DirectSound3D; previously supported A3D), voice playback tools text, speech recognition (only for Xbox360, PlayStation 3, Nintendo Wii and Microsoft Windows, also planned for Linux and Mac), modules for networking and support for various input devices.

For online play, Windows Live, Xbox Live, and GameSpy technologies are supported, including up to 64 players (clients) at the same time. Despite the fact that the development tools do not officially include support for a large number of clients on a single server, the engine has been used to create MMORPG games. One of the most famous representatives of the genre, Lineage II, uses the Unreal Engine.

ADVANCED GAME SETTINGS

Ancestors Legacy has the widest range of graphics settings. You can also change the settings for four main sub-items - low medium, high and ultra. Basic and advanced settings are located in three different sub-items of the graphical menus.

Below we have provided screenshots of the game at various graphics settings, where our readers can see the difference between the minimum and maximum graphics quality settings. 

DIFFERENT QUALITY MODES

The difference in quality is visible to the naked eye.

COMPARISON OF SMOOTHING MODES

The work of anti-aliasing in the game blurs the picture a little...

GENERAL VISUAL DESIGN AND GAME PHYSICS

Ancestors Legacy has a pretty good graphics component, perfectly implemented on the  Unreal Engine 4 graphics engine. In fact, there are very few games in the RTS genre, especially high-quality ones, so there is practically nothing to compare with...

Well, then we will go directly to the gaming tests and determine what impact this game has on modern computer hardware.

All video cards were tested at the maximum graphics quality by the Action! program. 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 resolutions of 1920x1080, 2560x1600 and 3840x2160 with the maximum graphics quality settings selected (ultra by default).

 In the test of video cards, 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 choose 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 was conducted on the base configuration Core i 7 5960X @ 4.6 GHz with the amount of pre-installed memory 32 GB DDR4 2400 MGz. All used RAM was taken as an indicator. The RAM test on the entire system was carried out on various video cards without running extraneous applications (browsers, etc.). In the graphics, you can add and remove any resolutions and video cards as desired.
