Yeah, like that Pip guy in that old book, I had a benefactor! :)

#642

Awesome! I hope you have a lot of fun Scott.

You know what you have to do @robc04

I am 15 minutes into that video and I want to buy it again, lol.

I hope they never add land combat back, it was not fun in the earlier games. :P

Is this going to eventually come back to Steam? Or is it permanently off the store from tomorrow onward?

#647

Ugh , Steam version didn’t unlock at midnight.

#648

Yeah, Ubisoft’s launch page even says it’s not out until tomorrow morning. I don’t know who’s giving a great big “fuck you” to whom – Ubisoft to Steam, Steam to Ubisoft, Ubisoft to customers with the temerity to buy on Steam? – but one is being given!

My copy on Steam is unpacking. Hoping that means I can play some tonight.

It unlocked! One of the only benefits of working a night shift.

For someone that hasn’t been following the Epic Store stuff at all, am I better off getting this on the UBI store or the Epic Store, or does Epic Store just get me a key for UBI Store?

#651

so ah… DX11 or DX12?

#652

Older CPU and newer GPU -> DX12.
DX12 will be fastest in most cases I suppose. DX11 is much more CPU heavy.

#653

Hmm my chess table is locked for some reason even though I’ve started the full game.

#654

Meanwhile I’m not getting any credit for having played 2205.

#655

It is still for sale on STEAM, I am guessing until 11am PT / 1pm ET , due to Valve Time.

#656

Damn kick ass release / accolades trailer!

#657

How hard is this on the CPU? I appear to just scrape by with the “recommended” settings for everything else. I guess I should have grabbed the open beta just to see if it would run. Ah well.

Game is having issues with Steam apparently, causing severe stutter when scrolling the map.

What they suggested in that thread worked for me.

Start Steam offline.
Launch game via Uplay.
It checks Steam , then launches the game.
Stutter issue is gone.

Also I have a feeling a year from now this will be back on Steam, I am even getting trading card drops now.

#659

It’s a cpu heavy game (german website), but DX12 helps a lot and there are sliders for object-/building-/shadow-quality and draw distance that should help as well.

BTW running the game in fullscreen mode seems to be mandatory for best results.

I’m still on Win 7 for now, so I take that to mean I wouldn’t be able to run it very well. That’s OK, I’ll just pick it up after my next hardware upgrade.
