    Thanks for the screenshots and whatnot.

    Are you really playing a racing game with the keyboard though? :3eyes:

    Yeah I don't have a gamepad yet, I kinda should pick one up but I'm not quite sold on the X360 pad yet though I haven't really used one that much either. :)
    (And it would be something like that since it's the most compatible with the current state of most ports, this game for example does not support other inputs or wheels - which is odd - besides keyboard or the X360 pad according to the FAQ.)

    EDIT: See?

    (If the 30 FPS lock wouldn't already have killed off most enthusiasm people had for the PC version then that probably will kill what remains, ha ha.)

    The PC version looks about the same as the PS4 footage I've seen, perhaps slightly better as the textures and ambient occlusion lighting might be of a higher quality. I didn't notice that many jaggies in the PS4 footage though but there again NFS: The Run used Frostbite and lacked any kind of AA as well (did last year's Most Wanted use Frostbite because that too had poor AA unless they added SSAA in a later patch?).

    Pick up an Xbox One pad when they go on sale. They have rumble feedback in the triggers which should make it awesome for racing and shooting games.

    It is unplayable for me while BF4 is running perfectly in my laptop.

    Locked to 30 fps and lack of optimization.

    How can it be possible if it uses the same BF4 engine?

    EA just want to give PC gamers the true next gen console experience in all its 30 fps glory :)

    Not really a surprise, it's a brand new developer which appears to be a mix of new devs and old Criterion ones, while being managed by a former DICE guy.

    Thankfully no one who can't game at 30fps will waste any money as Origin gives refunds now, hopefully a large refund rate will push them into patching it.

    how is it possible that this is on frostbite 3 and have no AA or its even locked on 30fps??

    I know in the past they have blamed engines for not being able to use AA, but now that it's frostbite 3, this shouldn't even be an excuse..

    What, you mean releasing the same game for a 5th time wasn't bad enough?
