Games like this are not made for PC's.
They are made to be played on consoles. I'm not against porting these kind of titles to PC (IEMC,CastleVania,Tomb Raider)

But,time and time again you see problems with these games on PC.
I myself had many problems with Tomb Raider and Castlevania in particular.

I will get this game as it looks awesome and fun to play. But,i will get it for my PS3/PS4.

Sounds like the same issue Saints Row 2 had, where driving was just full of sudden stutters as the rest of the world and cars had to load.

You know, it would be helpful if people having issues actually posted what specs their pc is, that way it would be much easier to say whether the game is poorly optimised of if it is your pc's that are causing the issues.

and please don't just say 'my pc can run such and such a game on ultra just fine', because this game has stupidly high system requirements, much higher than games needed 6-7 months ago.

I mean the recommended cpu is a AMD FX8350, the minimum cpu is a AMD Phenom II x6, and the recommended Intel cpu is not much lower either.

Here I will just post the official specs needed for the game.

System Requirements
Minimum:
OS: Windows Vista (SP2), Windows 7 (SP1) or Windows 8 (Please note that we only support 64 bit OSs.)
Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 @ 2.8Ghz or AMD Phenom II X6 1100T @ 3.3Ghz
Memory: 6 GB RAM
Graphics: DirectX 11 graphics card with 1 GB Video RAM - Nvidia Geforce GTX 460 or AMD Radeon HD 5770
DirectX: Version 11

Recommended:
OS: Windows Vista (SP2), Windows 7 (SP1) or Windows 8 (Please note that we only support 64 bit OSs.)
Processor: Eight core - Intel Core i7-3770 @3.5 GHz or AMD FX-8350 X8 @ 4 GHz
Memory: 8 GB RAM
Graphics: DirectX 11 graphics card with 2 GB Video RAM - Nvidia Geforce GTX 560 ti or AMD Radeon HD 7850
DirectX: Version 11


I myself am running an AMD FX8350 @ 4Ghz, 8gb Ram and a AMD HD7870Ghz Edition and Windows 8.1 64-bit and can run everything on ultra except textures which is at high (cause the game says you need a gpu with 3gb of ram for) and my gpu only has 2gb, and I'm not kidding but I am running pretty much constantly at around 50-60fps and this is at 1920x1080.

Because it isn't my PC causing the issues, I know this...I don't care if you know this, because that doesn't help me any.

The game needs a patch, cool that it works perfectly for you...But unlike consoles this isn't a one-size fits all system.

Wasn't this originally a PC game that was later ported to consoles? That's what I hear at the very least :/

Anyways, on the Steam Watch_Dog forum, there's quite the outrage happening because of this game. You have half the people complaining about the bad optimization with a GTX 600/700 series, then you have the other half with ****ty graphics cards/integrated graphics/mobile graphics cards saying that they're running the game on Med-High with 60 FPS. LOL

I experience the same problem on a 690 GTX, it is worst when i'm in a car driving fast, keep in mind i have everything maxed out including AA and the game used both my cards.

The game clearly suffers from poor optimization.

My temps looks really strange considering i got everything on ultra including DoF, MHBAO and TXAA 4x.

This was after running the game for about 25 minutes.

This game, while still buggy, at least gives me a GTA fix since Rockstar Games so blatantly HATES PC gamers. Until the PC port for GTA5 comes out this will do for freeroaming murdersprees to help with stress management from dealing with stupid arsed talking-monkeys(Prophecy reference) all day.

At least you guys can play the singleplayer campaign. For me the game crashes when I launch singleplayer.

GTX 780ti SLI + 16 GB + i7 3970x (stock)
