Does this game hace a story or is it strictly multiplayer? I don't mean single player objective based.
You can play it single player if you want. It’s basically an open city, you can choose to go alone or matchmake through it. You run around exploring areas and doing story missions, when you get to a story mission you can hit the marker and matchmake or run past it and solo it.

There is a solid story to it, but how you discover it isn’t from running to checkpoints. There are echos and tapes hidden all over the world that help flesh out the backstory between missions.

It has a pretty meaty demo you can download and try for yourself and if you like it all the progress carries over to the full game.

While the ps5 runs the smoothest, the performance comparison is difficult to take at face value till it’s properly fixed. It may be gaining frames from the missing fog etc.

On the flip side they also need to look at that XsX performance, dropping frames like crazy in the opening is not nearly a taste of the stress the game places on the system when things heat up later. It will fall into a jerky mess if they don’t optimise it better via drs etc.

Cool. Are you sure and the demo though? Not seeing it.

Even on Xbox One X that opening was the worst performing spot in the game.

Once you actually load the city, it smoothed out.

I can’t see it because I own it, but if you go into the Division 2 and click get trial. I don’t think it’s a separate client, basically download the full game and once you get to a certain point you either drop it or buy it.

I find that hard to believe
I played it, and the previous comparisons say the same, but believe what you want.

Its not that hard to lookup yourself.

If you want to say that because they are B/C they are running the Pro/1X versions, then we can quickly look back to see what those comparisons were.

Because you hate games, Movies or fun?

Plenty of PS5 players were happy with it, until this thread came up.

Should they all hate it now? Or should they continue having fun?
Ah so it’s this threads fault.
Have fun playing your iconic french garbo.

I will,

have fun playing...... TBH I‘m not sure what you could be playing, that doesn’t have all that other bulkshit attached to it, but I hope you are enjoying it.

I know I have more games than I can play right now and they don’t stop coming.

I don't understand why Massive goes above 50% res scale. Their reconstruction is the best out there and higher settings would be so much better looking. Very sad to see.

Looked it up as per your advice. DF claims Xbox One X solid 30, even upon the opening. 12 minute mark.

DF = Xbox shills? 😜

I guess they were till they flipped and showed lacklustre Series x performance. 😂

I don't understand why if a game is buggy on ps5 they speak quite ill of it, yet if xbox has the same issue with another game it's instantly classed as a bug or they sugar coat it with vrr talk and they tend to contact the developer or whatever.
What was the title for the Dirt 5 DF analysis video? Did they mention anything about SX in the title?

Like having an iPhone 12 on Cricket mobile, but they don't offer 5G for it, won't matter shit if the iPhone 12 hardware supports it.
But we know Sony will start using it.



Anybody thinking otherwise...

Patch is incoming to address missing fog on PS5 version


Curious if the other visual bugs get ironed out too
Their earlier replies suggested that devs had identified the missing fog problem on their own, but they couldn't identify other issues that DF highlighted.

I expected them to first fix the fog problem (which they must have been working on longer) and then start fixing issues that DF identified. I expect it will take some time (assuming they are willing to patch and fix everything on the PS5.)

Probably just a config file with settings in all honesty. Unlikely any new code has been produced for a BC title, just misconfigured settings for target.

The server shut down is likely rolling unrelated updates out at the same time.
