LOL you too, I had everything graphically set to low and barely managed 50fps.

It could be a good game though. I'll wait a week or two before I drop any money on it.

Strange, I got on around 7pm no problem.
Played for around 45 minutes. Though you have to keep pressing enter.

Yeah to be honest, it looks nice at 4k, but I think it's a game that should be played at 1080p. Maybe in a couple of GPU generations it could hit 60fps at ultra in 4k... but thats years away yet.

But what did you think of the game?

i played like 20 minutes?
To many server issues to really get a solid opinion on it.
This game was free for me with rtx 2080 so i'll try it again when it's out - had so many issues loading into missions or even logging in, pretty annoying.

I honestly think thats an out and out lie, how many times have we all pre-ordered EA games only to be let down on day one by server capacity, and it often took a week to get a game together that didn't lag? Every single time. Why? It's cheaper and more economical to add servers later than to over subscribe and end up with servers you don't need.
Just my thoughts.

I forgot that I recorded my gameplay of the demo.

*Caution* 12GB video!!!

I'll upload to YouTube later tonight, it'll probably take all night too.

Hmm, Curry's fucked up, they've sent me 2 codes when I only needed one. The first code was for Battlefield V which I've redeemd a few weeks ago, it was for buying an RTX 2070
Then today they sent me another code, so I went to the NVidia site to see if it was for BFV again and if it was I would give it away... only NVidia said it was for BFV Or Anthem... so I've now got anthem too for free.

I'm liking it, though it's not a time sink, I do enjoy it. I think once I'm passed a certain level and have completed the main story I'll probably quit playing it.

But yeah it's good.

I've really got into the game now, it's really damned good. Though there are still a lot of issues, especially loot drops now the patch hit. But so far I'm 100+ hours in and loving it.
I'm now level 30 and doing so much damage it's funny. Plus Masterwork loot. I've got an assault rifle and 2 pistols and wow. All level 56 items
:)

But The Division 2 drops in 2 days so...
