Get thee behind me pre-order satan.
Honestly if there was even one decent review I'd jump it. I'm pretty excited about this game. Not gonna do it. I've been burned thrice now.
Heh. I hear ya. But I don't jump on Internet bandwagons or memes full of people with all-or-nothing mentalities. I've seen the PC gameplay footage. $45 purchase confirmed based on what I saw. Had elements of L4D mixed with mirrors edge. I love co-op zombie shooters. Anyone upset about Dead Island can go be butthurt in the corner.
Dying Light seems like exactly the Dead Island I originally wanted and its developed on the same engine so I'm comfortable saying no ones likely to get burned here I'm just personally choosing not to be a part of the process. If tonight we get bombarded by kickass reviews I'll gladly pay my $60 or whatever upfront.
Well, what seems evident now based on watching streams and interviews with the developers is that Dying Light is the game they really wanted to make all along prior to Dead Island, but for various reasons (graphic tech, economic, publisher) were forced into a box and begrudgingly made Dead Island instead.
So now we're getting the game they seem much more passionate about. It's certainly a big step up in graphics, and makes Dead Island almost feel like an indie by comparison. Watching more streams tonight it sort of reminds me of Far Cry 3 with zombies, and Mirror's Edge type parkour.
It's Dead Island in a more open world city with parkour/climbing elements.
Techland is the developer, and WB Games is the publisher this time around. It sounds like WB gave Techland the freedom to make the game they wanted, unlike Deep Silver and Dead Island. I'm keeping an eye on it myself, just waiting on the "WTF is..."This game good? might like it if it's deeper silver then EVOLVE.
Maybe not so simple.Seems like AMD cards are getting pounded by this game. On Nvidia dropping the view distance to 50% seems to fix most of the fps issues using the latest drivers.
I have a FX8350 + 970 +8GB of Ram.. and I am getting 20-40 fps outside. Textures are high and every else is turned off. I don't get it.
i7-3770 3.4ghz 8gb DDR3 GTX 970 SC 4gb VRAM 1600x900 Windows 7
Getting pretty bad performance even with the new drivers. Maybe around 20-60fps depending on where I am or looking
i7 3770k (stock settings) and GTX 970 here. The game seems to run at about 30-40 FPS most of the time, with regular dips below and HEAVY dips during and after cutscenes (I'm talking frozen screen for 0.5 seconds for the duration of the cutscene). DOF/AA/Motion Blur off, view distance somewhere on middle, everything else on high.
I can confirm runs like shit on sli gtx 970, i5 4690k at 4 GHz, and 16gb ram. When inside runs fine, outside runs at 20, also ski support doesn't work at all
GTX 970 AMD FX 6300 (@4.5GHz)
I just went into the open world, 6-20FPS. Poorly developed game xD
He posted a few hours later saying his config settings got corrupted and he had to reset everything, and that fixed it. He also followed up saying Dying Light's performance is "fine".FWIW, TB said that the Day 1 patch that dropped last night killed the performance of the game by at least 50% when compared to his play time earlier in the day.
I havent had many issues. My viewers seem to like it. I dont particulary care for the durability loss on weapons. The world design has been great. The acrobatics have been fun. Dont hate or love the skill point system. I'm 4 hrs in and id give the game a solid B so far.
