I await the final release when some will complain about awful performance when their hardware can't handle the ultra settings.

PC version is under embargo for an other week so yeah someone fucked up.
Based on the other videos on the channel the youtuber doesn't seem to be associated with any outlets.

Shouldn't be too difficult with the very obvious downgrade.
This video looks worse than the xb1 version due to the settings and people are still claiming a "very obvious downgrade." (._. )

The game looks good on low and runs 60 fps on a 650ti.....a fucking 650ti. I have good faith massive at least optimized the shit out of this game and higher end rigs could easily max out or hit a great bar.


That PC user could obviously run 30 fps at medium

I think the screenshot thread is going to be alot of The Division when the beta is going on.
I assume there will be no NDA for the Beta?

If so, I'll be posting a bunch of vanilla shots, maxed out, 1440p.

I'm taking into account that Youtube compression makes any game ugly, and the fact that he is playing on low. I'm super curious to see if some of the features promised are still in the game, such as the snow slightly melting and causing slush.

Nope. No NDA. :)

So if I played the Alpha I'm also in the Beta, right? Will we get additional codes for PS4 and PC or do we have to pre-order those versions as well? Still gotta decide between PS4 and PC.

If you were in the alpha you get a Beta key. I think you just get one and when you activate it you can select your platform again.

OK then, gonna go with PC then. I'll just imagine PS4 runs a bit smoother than Xbox One and try to make a decision based on that. Thank you.

So hows does this % work? Do you simply switch between a number of presets of you have 100 degrees of control over the effect?
Anything with % is scalable from 0% to 100%. Full control, only reason I say that is because Object Detail was set at 38%.

Of course I could be wrong and some could be presets, we just don't know ATM and I (we) can only speculate.

Don't forget the NXgamer analysis video showing a 2GB 7870 stuttering at settings for 4GB cards.
You aren't implying the Playstation™ 4® can be matched, are you ? Certainly not by mere PC hardware which let's not forget is not Supercharged®.

You heathen.


In all seriousness I expect a Pitcairn (7850/7870) in a PC environment to very nearly match any console sku if paired with a monstruous Core I3.
