same. was going to buy this but saw no way to change fov. someone in the community i hope finds a way to do it with a program but doubt it being that its using Assassins creed engine and we all know how crapy of a port that was (horrid mouse acceleration)

FOV will be just like Max Payne 3 which is fine with me.

Never understood why people feel the need to let the world know they're not buying a certain product.

Especially when they don't realize the game is third person already. Thats like saying I'm not buying GR FS because it's not a driving game... derrp.. yep.

umm FoV does matter in TPV games just as much as in FPV games..

do you know much about what FoV is?
here have a couple examples from Mass Effect 3, another Third Person title.

FoV at default 70

now bumped up to 90 via a simple hack.

.... either i'm insane or theres a rather large view difference between those images..

i'm not for ignoring a good game merely over a smaller FoV meant for consoles, but at least know what your speaking of..

how about some Saints row FoV increase?

Modded for higher

all sorts of examples exist out there just check out the widescreen gaming forum site.

and for some people this can actually be a health concern.
not all, but some.

what's there to be concerned about? Actually having to move your mouse too look? You're right, people might get wrist strain!

IT IS NOT ABOUT THAT. People get sick/uncomfortable while playing games with low FoV on widescreen monitors.

Below 70 FoV is not MEANT for PC monitors, how ♥♥♥♥ing hard is to UNDERSTAND THIS?

Unless your using 3 monitors, moaning about FOV is a fail. HD TV's are widescreen and you dont see console gamers moaning about set FOV's. I use a pad to game anyway so looking around isnt an issue to me :p

How is it not meant for PC monitors? Many PC monitors are 16:10, yes, and almost all TV's are 16:9, so a wider FOV would make sense for PC monitors, I guess. However, no multi-platform Ubisoft game since AC has had actual support for anything other than perfect 16:9 screens in their pc versions. Any other resolution is just going to have letterboxes, this game is no exception. So a larger FOV really does not matter in this situation, due to Ubi's PC ports being garbage, though it seems like they're at least trying this time with the added graphical features.

I understand why some cannot play with a low FOV as it makes them feel sick, doesn't affect me but I do notice a difference when playing in 70 FOV.

console players also tend to sit farther away from the screen than PC players do.
sitting nearer tends to give you a "tunnel vision" affect with the low FoV that messes with some peoples heads.
at the distance not so much given its like looking through a window into the virtual world.
the low fov and tunnel vision when closer to the view can cause some people (NOT ALL) to suffer from headaches and nausea as a result.

i cant get my head around feeling sick with low fov? but hey if its a known issue who am i to judge, just seems like a stupid thing to not purchase a game over

Fair point, I probably sit about a foot away from my monitor and don't have any issues like that. But each to there own :)

Because they're sitting far enough away from the TV. Get a clue!

Edit: I should be a little nicer and help educate (http://youtu.be/blZUao2jTGA?t=5m6s). FYI: You should watch it from the beginning (http://youtu.be/blZUao2jTGA) and part two (http://youtu.be/S1XsPYPGcl0), but this will at least give you a clue.

This has to do with your peripheral vision. The closer you get the less you have unless the game makes up for it with a higher FOV.

Oh god, here we go with the FOV discussion.

Again.

It's just a matter of time before somebody gets out their calculator and starts telling us all about various aspect ratios etc. etc.

Did GWAR have fov slider? if it didn't how in the name of ♥♥♥♥ did you expect 1 here.
