    Same here, game stutters like crazy and I've got a pretty beefy rig.

    **EDIT**

    Nvm, someone already posted gmanlives video.

    **EDIT2**

    The woke crowd ruined another series. I have no hopes for the next Grand Theft Auto.

    Saints Row games have always been, as people call it, "woke".

    I can't wait to hear the backlash GTA6 will get if it also has a female lead character...

    No they haven't. Also wut? Nobody has complained about a female lead character unless she was made to look like a half man thing for the sole purpose of pushing a political agenda.

    The first 4 games didn't bash capitalism and complain about white privilage.

    None of that makes you woke, but ok. And by the way it's spelt privilege.

    Woke is a broad meaning, term or whatever. Sorry my spell checker is broken. It literally refuses to work.

    I wonder how smooth it will run on console, I feel as if that is where the devs will have spent the time optimizing and any pc trying to run the game is basically.... well if it can play it it can play it.

    It runs pretty bad.
    All modes have trouble keeping a stable frame rate. The 1080p high performance mode is the best, or rather, the least bad.
    It also has bad frame pacing. And lots of bugs.

    Surely no-one is that surprised that the rebooted Saints Row is technically janky and buggy because Volition are simply incapable of releasing a polished game on any system in my experience having played all of these games from its Xbox 360 debut (with copious screen tearing, faked transparencies for windscreens and horrendous framerates) through to the recent Saints Row 3 Remastered on PS5 and PC, which is their most polished game to date but only because they didn't do the remastering, someone else did!

    I was mildly interested in Saints Row rebooted until I found out it was an Epic exclusive and not a great one either. I think if I do buy this then it'll be when it eventually comes to Steam, hopefully after a few dozen patches to fix the games many, many issues.

    By the way, what engine is this game running on? Is it the same one as previous games or a new one such as Unreal Engine 4/5? The pop in is atrocious in this game even on PC with maxed out settings and that puts me off buying it completely unless there is a way to tweak the draw distance like you can with many UE4 games.

    It's quite the bummer that generally speaking PC is sort of an afterthought for seemingly most devs/studios at this point. You'll see these console efforts where it's like, "Wow, it's genuinely impressive what they got out of the system and with smooth frametimes to boot" then the game comes over to PC and often even on "beefy" rigs there are asset streaming or shader compilation stutters or bad frame pacing/frametimes (even with adaptive sync monitors). It's a real shame.

    My "hope" is that technologies like DirectStorage once available (the full version, not what exists now which seems to lack many if not most of the benefits of the tech that have been eventually promised) will help. It really does seem like on PC users are just left to "brute force" their way through bad optimization a lot of times with very very expensive hardware and even that doesn't always work.

    Runs fine to me but the TSSAAx8 causes ghosting badly

    Checked out some reviews and YT videos about the game. So far, I'm not impressed. Especially when the game is fcking epic exclusive.
    Will wait for sale AND it releases on steam.

    Save yourself the time spent and money wasted and just watch the ending.

    I almost, *almost*, bought this game yesterday for PC from CDKeys.com when I saw the game was listed at £26.99 (it is £49.99 on the Epic Games Store) but, unfortunately... or fortunately, it was out of stock. I guess I shouldn't be surprised. Oddly, CDKeys.com list the original price as £32.99 and not £49.99. Maybe they never had any stock to begin with?

    Anyway, at £27, I would have taken the plunge as that seems to be a fair price for a fun but shallow and buggy game. I would certainly not pay £50 for this game though. Volition need to learn how to polish up their games prior to release in my opinion and it also wouldn't hurt if they ditched that ancient engine they use for the Saints Row games in favour of Unreal Engine 4 or 5, which offers better physics and draw distances etc.
