  • Holy hell! How about a SPOILER ALERT? Posted from Windows Central for XL
  • So what are the graphical options exactly? And does it has a decent performance already? Cause last time i tried it was **** on Windows (even with a pc that can run it recommended)
  • I'm wondering the same thing. Can you disable Vsync ??
  • No. Vsync is still forced. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Disgusting
  • I beat this game on normal. Now I gotta play through again on hard.
  • It's not very difficult on Hard mode. My first play through was on Hard and only died a handfull of times. Mainly the last boss fight before you realize whats killing you, haha.
  • Is this still locked at 50fps?
  • Is anyone else's update 27GB? Also thought there would've been an updated Geforce driver by now with Quantum Break optmizations.
  • I played for about 5 minutes before the game completely locked up and I had to hold down the power button to restart. Oh well, It was fun on XBO and I didn't have any issues.
