    Cheers. I think I'll pop out today and pick it up as I just finished A plague tale and though they're not similar at all I'm in the mood for some weird and dark..

    Think I'm about to drop this.

    Trying to do a sidequest that takes place deep below Research. The enemies here hit like a fucking truck (the whole game feels like it was balanced around the player having about 4x more health than you actually have). They can hit you with homing projectiles from huge range. And if you die, you have to go right back up, do a long platforming-drop sequence and a shitload of running, plus some Hiss trash mobs most times, to get back, because there's no save point down there.

    Fucking shit design.

    I'd leave that side quest for now, those enemies are likely 3 or 4 levels higher than where you'd be in the main storyline and there's a later bit you won't be able to do yet.

    Got it done in the end. Still shit design, though.

    Content roadmap is out. Photo mode in the autumn, new endgame mode 'expeditions' in Dec, then the expansions follow next year: Early 2020 for Foundation, mid-year for AWE.

    According to Quantum Break, AWE stands for more than one thing...

    Any opinions on performance post patch? Itís only out in PS4 as it turns out they really are taking their exclusive content all the way with this one 🙄

    I'm playing on the One S and despite some horrendous frame drops I think its absolutely great. A weird combination of the twilight zone, x-files, Fringe and...something else I can't remember.
    I couldn't recommend it to anyone that remotely cares about performance though

    Even on x it runs like a dog too often tbh. I was playing this until gears 5 came along and then I had no interest in picking it back up, now Iím waiting for the timed exclusive patch 🙄

    yeah, I'm going to get a Pro or X in a couple of months and I'm tempted to leave it until then. Finished the Gears 5 campaign and that ran fine. I do have a shedload of indie games that will no doubt run great as well, so that should keep me going

    PC version patched on Tuesday evening. Some mild performance increases, but nothing to write home about.

    Seems to really struggle when you unpause the game

    @Baihu1983 There are clearly some data-streaming issues here. Even running from an NVMe SSD, I get occasional stutter when the game loads assets - for instance after loading up, resuming after a pause or when new enemies are being spawned.
