Testing & Performance

Test System

  • I7 6700K CPU at 4.0 GHz
  • ASUS Z170a Motherboard
  • 32GB (4x8) 3000MHz Corsair Vengeance RAM
  • Gigabyte 980ti Windforce Edition GPU

The performance is the biggest problem the game had. Frame rate was fine with no noticeable screen tearing. However the game would frequently crash to desktop during loading screens. The developers also failed to create a proper options menu for the game with the graphic settings being options being Fastest, Fast, Simple, Good, Beautiful and Fantastic. However this gives you no feedback as to what options are turned on, this doesn't tell you if AA, v-sync or ambient occlusion are on. This gives you no feedback on shadow detail, texture resolution or lighting options. It’s frankly sloppy that this is how the developer handled an option menu for a PC game. The minimum specs for the game are: Q9650 or AMD Phenom II X4 940, 6 GB RAM, GTX660 or Radeon 7870. The recommended specs are: i7 3770 or AMD FX-8350, 8 GB RAM, GTX770 or R9 290. 25 GB of free storage space is also required, with the game currently taking up 17 GB there could be DLC coming in the future. Again this game should run on most pcs out there, however with the crashing during menus waiting for more stability patches would be recommended. This crashing persisted across multiple game installs on more than one machine.
