  • How's the game these days? Liked it a lot but bugs and stability made me not launch it for about a year or so...
  • Pretty stable but not perfect.
  • It's OK. Personally I'm still pretty mad that there's no 60fps option on the Xbox One X.
  • Tell me about it. I'm still mad they nerfed the graphics too. Stupid grey outline in inventory now.
  • Fun but far from stable or a 'fully polished game.
  • It's glorious!
