Anyone got this and playing on the PC?

I just picked it up a couple of days ago and just now downloading it.

I played RDR and thought it was a hoot and can't wait to get into 2. :peace:

If you have it and played post up some screen shots and what you think of it.

Was wanting to make this an "official" game thread but I'm not even sure how a person goes about that. :p

For some reason I thought one had been started months ago, but not sure.

Anyway, whichever mods are over this Games subforum can make a thread “official” for a game. Just PM them. It used to be RCoon did it on request when he was active.

Yeah, I got it but still finishing off one last playthrough of Skyrim SE before really launching in to it. Have you run the games benchmark?

If you do it on Ultra everything in settings, it's very punishing on the system. Even top tier cards but Nivida's latest 3xxx series struggle in this game. That is with Vulcan API.

Yep, I'd imagine it would be @AlwaysHope

From the graphics I've seen I can see where it would be crazy demanding LOL

Anyone that has this game and hasn't downloaded it yet, it uses up 119 gigs of drive!!!

Newer games are just insane on the amount of drive space they take up. Hell, I can remember games being less than 100 megs. LOL

Fired it up over the weekend, but just for a few minutes. Didn't have a chance to really get into the game. The graphics are great.........However I'm still using a dang GTX970 so the graphics could be a lot better with a more modern video card I'm sure.
I had to scale the graphics down a bunch for the game to even play in full screen.
Planning on getting a 2080ti soon so that should make a huge difference.

That should make a huge difference! I only played about 4 and a half hours when it came out. It was obviously such a large investment of time I ended up putting it on the back burner. I'll get to it though!

Just did an hour of the main quest last night, have mixed feelings about this... so far too many cut scenes & swapping between 1st & 3rd person views...
My system has everything maxed @ 1080P, the box draws avg 350w+ as measured from the wall plug. Massive increase compared to DX11 game

Nah, 1080P only that monitor unless I go VR
Can't recall what FPS atm.
In any case, I find the game annoying as heck to play... but they got my $!
Game journos rambling on how fantastic the game is & can do 1st person perspective... well that's complete BS!
Only 1st person at certain parts of the game.
Moral of the story, don't believe the hype!

haha i guess that was good about way back, tapes now you would need thousands of them haha.

Anyways play everyday, multiplayer is a grind, don't rush though or you will not have any thing to do later.

Feel free to add me, same as the forum.

I have a buddy who got this on a 21:9 display and he loves it. I really want a 21:9 display someday. I think we are at a point where you need two high end monitors, one really nice 21:9 monitor and one high fps 1440p one. and then again a 32" 4k one for games capped at 60 fps... so 3 displays... lord save us all...

Yeah... know what you mean. But I dont need 100FPS
Over the years (~20) I've learned to play such games with 30FPS if I have to, so around 50~60 will be just fine. So much for the 120Hz, but it is what it is...
