I’m running the game at a solid 40-60 FPS with everything maxed out but I’m getting weird texture artifacts and the anti-aliasing doesn’t look right with jagged edges etc… appearing on certain items. Then about 10 minutes in while exploring the first area the game locked up and I was forced to close the program in task manager. I stopped playing and moved onto Project Zomboid.
Frustrating as these bugs are, I can see through them and see the potential for a beautiful game underneath but wish developers would spend more time perfecting their PC Ports. The opening sequence will draw you right in, it’s very well done without giving away any spoilers.
I’d really like to continue diving into the game world a little more but these current graphics and performance issues are a problem for me. Thankfully there is lots of other games we can write about for now. I’ll be waiting for a patch on either AMD’s front or Ubisofts front to fix these issues before I continue pirating on.
