    AMD and Far Cry 5, plus a not-so-subtle little promo for Corsair and their products. (Not-so-subtle = Right-in-face products and brand logos and all.)

    Honestly more of a advert for AMD products and it's pretty light on tech info and details other than some of the terms AMD themselves hyped up for Vega. (And there's that sweeping camera showing Corsair products again.)
    And I was more impressed by Assassin's Creed Origins and the new Anvil Next engine personally and that didn't really have any partnership or features from either GPU brand plus aside from being really dependent on lots of CPU cores it was also quite optimized for the visuals it was pushing. :)

    As for the game itself? Guessing the next patch and first of the three DLC packs might not be too far away, new challenge also started earlier today requiring long range kills to unlock the in-the-game-already-but-please-do-these-things-first gear pack of the week. :p

    How the hell do they have the gall to make such a video when they promise multi-gpu support and it launched with negative scaling? They can eff right off.

    Meh... Looks like developers must now study acting other than programming in order to get a job. :D
    "Pushing technological boundaries but only 5 meters away from your field of view".

    I reinstalled Crysis a few days ago and my God, it still looks gorgeous and extremely advanced, especially by tweaking a couple of CVARS. And it's not only about graphics, also the gameplay was great, without all the shooting aids we are used to nowadays. I don't want to get nostalgic but at the same time it's pretty embarassing how the technology is stagnating nowadays. Technologicaly speaking you can count advancements on one hand: going from forward to deferred rendering, global illumination (which is still not present in many games), screen space effects, higher resolutions and physically based materials (also here it's something that we cannot take for granted in every game). Nothing else comes up to my mind.

    Try ingame SMAA and force FXAA in the nvidia control panel, much better but the issue is the LOD, it looks impressive for the first 10 meters then it goes to a blurry mess, weirdly the game looks better from the air sometimes

    Yep that helps and also setting res. scale to 1.1 already removes aliasing quite a bit without much of performance penalty.

    Higher values ofc better.

    When devs talk about the game so proudly, and the game is piece of sh*t! Blurry piece of sh*t!

    Really looking forward to that Vietnam DLC!

    Also can't wait to see what modders do with the assets in the editor.

    Now I will wait until everything is out until I even try the DLCs, as usual we can see that patches do a thing or two to improve things.

    Just finished FC5 and if I'm happy with ending hard to say, its definitely different from most of games

    If I would be playing this game again, probably not

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Jura

    Only thing that makes the ending make any sense nm much of the game itself is that your are tripping hard core on drugs the entire game.....

    Too many contrivances for me to really say i liked it over some of the older far cry games.

    Anyone going back to Nam tomorrow? Love the new AK sound @10:30 btw. I think the Nam weapons are added to the normal FC5 campaign as well. (If you still play it.)

    30 € SeasonPass / 12 € Hours of Darkness DLC

    It also adds 2 new game modes when you completed the DLC "campaign".

    There's still stuff to do in Montana, and I need to take a detour in ye olde London, but Nam is a likely destination on the way!
