    I have it thanks to PS plus and the lack of cover kills the game...

    What were they thinking?...

    Graphically one of the best games you'll ever try the gtx1060 will have hard time but you'd still enjoy it very much. Rtx is nice but not required to enjoy the game. ;)

    I'm guessing they are only giving away the base game. I only just got the Ultimate version on Steam. Again and i'm just guessing you can't "upgrade" from the base game to Ultimate unless you pay full price for it.

    Same thing happened to Rage 2, i got it free on Epic but couldn't buy the DLC unless i bought the full game again. Which is stupid i know because they missed out on a sale for this DLC. DLC that can't be got unless you spend full price. F That....

    @Airbud @KissSh0t
    2 tips to save tons of SSD space:
    1 - Use this GUI for Windows' own compression/on-the-fly decompression - https://github.com/ImminentFate/CompactGUI/releases
    I usually use the 2nd strongest compression with 0 performance impact.

    2 - You can add the ability to Symbolic Link (acts as if the file is there) to your right click and just dump movie files of a game to a storage drive. - https://schinagl.priv.at/nt/hardlinkshellext/linkshellextension.html
    Surprisingly I've seen zero performance impact from this either. I expected perhaps a stutter or something as the HDD loads up movie files, but nothing so far.

    Just my main game folder alone has saved ~100GB not including all the GBs of movie files dumped to an HDD.

    Some games already have their files somewhat compressed so you won't save much if anything, others do squat for compression and you can reduce the file sizes to a fraction.

    Final thing: If you want weak compression you don't even need the GUI, you can just select it in the folder options.

    And 2060 is recommended for raytracing. We all knows how that goes. :p

    Finished that game few months back with DLC and loved that game, probably will replay it again

    Who didn't play that game, please play it and enjoy it

    I would add who have RTX 3090 please turn off DLSS, I remember I got lower FPS with DLSS enabled than without it

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Jura

    I'm playing at 3440x1440 Ultrawide and yes I don't play at 4k

    With my RTX 3090 and KPE XOC BIOS uncapped I can easily see 500-600W power draw hahaha,only at 85-90% I'm not hitting power limit

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Jura
