Looks great, will buy it on sale.

It's a great experience, but I have little desire to play it again right now

Kojima is taken seriously by the gaming community and I agree starting a new franchise other than Metal Gear was the right thing to do, PC gamers will be battling to get the best out of death Stranding with their rigs.

april has come and gone. stop with the jokes.

and "PC gamers will be battling to get the best out of death Stranding" ? lol it's not exactly hard to run this game going by these specs.

Surprisingly low, 60fps all round boys.
you say that like it's something to be excited about. 60fps on PC is the absolute bare minimum these days. 144hz is the new standard.

For the large majority of PC gamers, yes, a well optimized engine that allows 60fps on the bare minimum means the only way is up, unlike Red Dead Redemption 2 for example where you need a near super computer to run that game on High at keep 60fps.

I bought the game on PS4, of course it's been sitting in my backlog, but I'm not going to double dip.

To be fair, though, RDR2 was clearly designed to push hardware for a long time. Sometimes games do that, and PC gamers always get butthurt over it.

Not every game's "ultra" is meant for current GPUs, and definitely not meant for those GPUs at 4K/60 or whatever.

Hopefully it runs at 30 fps on an fx6300. Can't wait to play this at 1800p 30 and use the photo mode

Nope, the graphics settings were just poorly designed. A lot of options like water physics, tree tesselation and screen space reflections do very little, almost unnoticiable even, to add any visual fidelity for the game but still tank your fps regardless. If you know what you're doing, you can easily run the game at ultra-high settings 1440p 60fps with some of the most powerful hardware.

1050ti for 30fps sounds a bit high (1050ti is way more powerful than PS4), i wonder if we are getting some upgrades in this port.

Half-Life Crossover Content
Death Stranding for PC is also receiving a hotly anticipated injection of Half-Life related content, offering surreal crossover missions with Valve’s Half-Life universe. A familiar face has crossed over into the world of Death Stranding, impersonating Bridges’ employees and sending request emails prompting Sam to locate and secure companion cubes throughout the world. Completing these requests will reveal the mystery behind the friendly imposter and award Sam with useful new equipment and accessories.


Am I the last person to know about this?

Glad to know that I only need:
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-4460 or AMD Ryzen 5 1400
  • RAM: 8GB
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4 GB or Radeon RX 570 4 GB
For the ideal cinematic experience.

I don't know if this is indicative of how horizon is gonna run, that game has 10x the stuff on screen compared to DS...

I hope 4k60 are gonna be doable with some setting toned down in the guerrilla game.

Depends on the hardware init

I think the requirements should be pretty similar, both games had to run on PS4 hardware and they share the same engine.

Yeah but like i said, horizon has far more stuff on screen and on pc you usually have slow down the more stuff on screen is present.
On ps4 these games runs at 30 fps, on pc i always search the far more heavy 60 frames.
Also i want to play the game at real 4k.

The game is a looker on PS4, it's going to look amazing on pc.
Can't wait for the 4k maxed footage.

I never played this due to Fed Ex like gameplay. I think I’ll continue to not play it.

I have a 2070super not exactly a 4k60 gpu for heavy open world games to begin with.

Maybe with some shadows and some other minor shit toned down...

I spent 70 hours with it and from what I can tell-
Those weird low res textures on the ground seem to be gone
Sam has some extra detail that removes that smooth instagram filter look from his skin
Everything just looks cleaner, more than likely from a new form of AA but yes, I can can see a clear difference in these, especially the third because it was from my favorite area of the game.
Draw distance looks to be improved because you don't see those repeating textures in the distance to hide LOD in other games.

And yet somehow the loop gameplay is by far the better aspect in this game...and i was exactly like you seeing the gameplay trailers :ROFLMAO:

You can maybe think that the story cutscenes are the carrot when in reality the story is the stick...in the ass.

So I have an MSI Stealth GS65 laptop, it has an i7-8750H and a 1070 GTX Max-Q (and 16gb of RAM). I understand that I have an 8th gen CPU, but how does it stack up against a 3770? I've been out of the PC game a long time, so I am woefully uninformed on how to read/compare CPU designations at this point.
