    I don't have the game yet but from what I can tell no it's not available.

    That's the season pass.

    That should be the HD Pack but it's not available yet.

    EDIT: Forcing the texture pack download.

    EDIT: And it's using 4 GB VRAM and maybe even more.

    VRAM issue was blown over lol, my 770 and my brother's 7870 2 GB doesn't seem to use that much of it. Maybe it uses as much as it takes.

    Yea, i knew it was dumb to ask but w/e. Many people reporting that game indeed does work fine with Ultra texture DLC with less than 6gb vram , so guess it was just overblown for some unknown reason.

    The game is uses almost as much Vram as it can see.The GTX980/970 cards are more than fine for this game.

    Probably the only reasonable explination ive seen so far..

    http://www.overclock.net/t/1515461/...-of-vram-for-ultra-textures/370#post_22924600

    2.5gb - 4gb cards should be fine as far as x70/80gtx and ti variants.

    Game runs fine. Locked 60 with ss off, textures high and everything else maxed. Admittedly I'm not too far into the game.

    Don´t think this game is an exception... I mean there is a clear trend of how games are gonna use vram now. If I had a 980/970 I´d sell it asap because the resale value is gonna plummet hard.

    It wont provided gamers dont fall for this over-bloated sys-requirements trick that developers seem to be pulling.

    That's pretty interesting, so turns like what was most obvious. They don't give a **** when coding PC versions. I also believe engine itself has to do with memory allocation as well. So hoping we won't have to deal with this memory BS every single time , stuff like UE4 and CRY ENGINE should be fine in future.

    Has anyone noticed that SSAA seems to cap the framerate at 30fps? It does this for me at 150% and 200%, even in the menus.

    Ironic because marketing is the one saying a gtx9XX is cutting edge, when 4gb can´t even match consoles.

    Mind you, vram usage gets worse from here on because these are just cross-gen games, once they forget about about a ps3 and xbox360 it´s gonna get ugly for sub 6gb cards. If you want a card with some future, 6gb minimum.
