Damn, tried to do this VPN thing but no dice. On FlyVPN. Internet browsing says I'm in the UK (Amazon will direct to Amazon.co.uk ), but Steam won't let me unlock Batman.

Made the right choice not preloading, Steam ain't holding back on me.

You should change your username to Fibre. Damn that is some fine speed. Just wow.
You're probably playing it already.

Try using CyberGhost 5. I downloaded it, turned off steam completely, turned it on simulated the UK and then turned on Steam and it worked perfectly.

Damn, are you on a SSD? I might just redownload it too...
Decided to go HDD because I only have 60GB left on my SSD. It's down to 16 minutes now though.

Isn't decryption essentially an almost entirely CPU driven task?
If it is then I have a 5820k and this sucks

Alright, with everything maxed and enabled at 1080p I get this in the benchmark. I didn't really see the nvidia effects in the benchmark though, so have to see how it holds up in normal gameplay.



GTX970@1550MHz
i7 4770K@4.3GHz



Sweden.
impressive, game might be optimized after all? :)

Would you mind taking some screens of the graphic options?
1 minute 30 secs for decrypt.

3770k @ 4.4 Ghz
780ti
1440p

Will update with benchmark results.
Kepler conspiracy: the game will run at - (minus) 32 fps. Better off with PS4 version, man.

Christ. I have a 4670k and a 970 - I hope I'll be seeing similar results.

Still 5 minutes left of unpacking for me. 😴

Wow! This is good. This is real good.

Can you post screens of all the available graphics options?

How much RAM? Those are super close to my specs; I have a 4790 @ 4 GHZ though.

Eagerly awaiting your impressions, similar-ish system to my own. Hope there's no Kepler BS going a la Witcher 3 / Project Cars.

Hot damn 40 minutes to unlock...

Well I won't be home for like another 4 hours anyway lol. VPN'd and remote desktop'd. Probably should be working but this is more interesting.

edit: Movin the goalposts... 1hr 10 minutes

I've never done this before, but do i need to remain logged in to the VPN while i play? Or just unlock it and turn the VPN off?

[edit: post above me answered. Thanks.]
