Designed to connect with a whole range of gaming and entertainment systems, the Sound Blaster X7 functions as an ultra-high-end external Sound Blaster with an impressive 24-bit/192kHz high-resolution 127dB digital-to-analog converter (DAC) and 100W-capable audio amplifier. The result: the clearest, most powerful high-resolution audio experience for games, music and movies.

The Sound Blaster X7 for Captivating and Adrenaline-Pumping Games
Users of the Sound Blaster X7 will gain full access to Creative’s extensive suite of advanced audio enhancement technologies through the built-in SB-Axx1 multi-core DSP that deliver an all-new standard of audio realism for games. This functionality is especially pertinent to capture and reproduce the incredibly detailed audio created alongside the immensely compelling graphics and expansive environments found in today’s popular gaming titles, such as Battlefield 4, Titanfall and Skyrim.

With the Sound Blaster X7’s massive connectivity options, users who game on PCs, laptops, game consoles, tablets, smartphones and even TVs can now enjoy the full benefits of these enhancement technologies. Upgrading to the external Sound Blaster X7 is a breeze – just plug and play!

The Sound Blaster X7 for Mellifluous and Beyond Pristine Music
Today, average users – and even audiophiles – store most of their music on their PCs, Macs, smartphones and tablets. The Sound Blaster X7 connects to these devices while boasting the finest components and top-notch specifications that allow users to enjoy ultra-high-resolution music the way it was recorded in the studio.

These components and amplification capabilities allow the Sound Blaster X7 to deliver amazing audio quality even by audiophile standards on passive bookshelf and tower speakers.

The Sound Blaster X7 for Immersive and Explosive Movies
With the advent of high-speed broadband, users have easy access to HD and Ultra HD movies through download sites and streaming solutions such as Netflix. These sites and services have upped the ante of users’ expectations in terms of the visual quality of their entertainment, but they are often let down by subpar audio from inferior sound systems.

The Sound Blaster X7 will bring TV and movie audio to a whole new level of detail and realism. Users can connect the Sound Blaster X7 to their existing sound systems and enjoy the full suite of Sound Blaster processing for real-time audio enhancement. For instance, SBX Crystalizer™ is able to emphasise subtle audio details that were previously unheard, while SBX Bass enhances low frequency audio for an impactful experience, for example, with explosions in fast-paced action movies and shows. SBX Smart Volume on the other hand, intelligently minimises abrupt volume level changes during playback and between commercials.

Ubisoft recently took me to Paris to look at Far Cry 4 and they allowed me to capture some of my gameplay – here are some single player campaign gameplay videos.

FC4_Screen_Karma_Event_2_Preview_141

Far Cry 4 is an open-world, first-person shooter that delivers the most expansive and immersive Far Cry experience ever. Players find themselves in Kyrat, a breath-taking, perilous and wild region in the Himalayas struggling under the regime of a despotic self-appointed king. Using a vast array of weapons, vehicles, and animals, players will write their own story. For the first time ever, with Guns for Hire, players can invite a friend or AI companion to join them in the exotic open world, providing an exponential expansion of possibilities.

FC4_Screen_Arena_Explosion_Preview_1[2]

Far Cry 4 takes you to Kyrat, a mountainous paradise nestled in the Himalayas. Torn apart by civil war where the Kyrati people, led by the Golden Path, fight to take the power back from Pagan Min’s dictatorship.

All gameplay videos were captured from the PS4 version of the game using a build that was around 6 weeks old at the time of capturing, so if you see any little glitches or bugs they have most likely been fixed now. Also all cut-scenes and major plot points have been removed from the videos so as not to spoil the story.
