    Wouldn't be surprised if pascal owners got better performance with non "game optimized (for turing)" drivers.

    I have a noob question. Doe's the game require Social Club to launch.? Mine is tied to an old email account that has been closed for years. If i play GTA V on Steam it logs me in automatically. Was thinking of getting this on the Epic store since I don't want to wait for the steam version.

    1080p mostly ultra settings, particles and shadows on medium. Getting a solid 50-60fps with V sync on. The great thing is that it's not CPU intensive. I'm still using an FX 8350 and this game runs better than GTA V.

    Yeah I didn't mess wit the new drivers, something seemed fishy about them. Been using 441.08 all day and performance is great with no crashes.

    Why would you buy on Epic? Just get it straight from Rockstar.

    I am really freaking hating rockstar for not at least including dx11 with this title... fat chance of them officially support sli, with nvidia actively trying to kill off sli in favor of their rtx crap... but at least give us dx11 so we could make sli work ourselfs !

    I am really feeling like just refunding this game, no way i am playing it in this state...

    Even the launcher requires logging in to Social Club.

    I woke up early today to try this game before work.

    Took around 10 minutes to install Rockstar's launcher and to create a new account. Game started and crashed near the bullet animation at the beginning every time. Verified files, nothing! I installed the latest NVIDIA driver, same thing. A quick Google search suggested to turn off my antivirus, I did and I could finally reach the main menu - HDR was automatically on. However, navigating the menu takes forever to load... it takes a solid 2 minutes for the screen to fade to black (to transition to the new screen) but stays black. I had to alt-tab in and out a few times to see the new screen - rinse and repeat. I didn't not restart my system after the driver install; I don't know if that was the issue.

    I was going to take a few days off to play the game, glad I didn't take today off. My day would've went into troubleshooting this mess.

    Anyone experiencing anything similar?

    The epic version still installs and launches through the R* store, Best to just get it from there.

    Driver regressions do happen, but Game Ready drivers can also be about fixing rendering bugs. Better performance on older drivers could actually be that something is rendering incorrectly or not at all.


    My biggest disappointment tech wise is once again no support for DX12/Vulkan Multi GPU.

    It sounds like the majority of people having issues are using shitty third party anti-virus. Anyone that knows anything knows that AV is nothing but a system whore and is totally worthless.

    That is true, but since it is the same engine as gta 5, i somehow doubt that it is the case :)

    And i very much agree !

    One more noob question. Is there controller support? Can't find anything in Rockstars launcher. Don't want to play with kb and mouse

    Can confirm, updated my x570 aorus elite with 10f bios and it works. This is the first time I had to update bios to play a game.

    Typically in Rockstar games you can swap seamlessly between controller and keyboard.

    Anyone else having an annoying visual bug with the heavy snowpack on the tree branches? It seems to flash, then re-render as you approach the trees with it..

    Edit.. Finally got out of the blurry snow Chapter.. Now I can really judge the PC improvements.

    Yeah, it's definitely better than console..
