Patch 2 just came out, along with a -75% sale. I’ve been following this with morbid curiosity so I finally went ahead and picked it up, here’s a few snippets of gameplay from the 10 hours I’ve spent with the game over the past few days.
It’s… kinda all over the place. The combat is decent, the stealth is mediocre, exploration is pretty good, and I love being able to set fire to anything made out of wood. But it’s still pretty janky. Had a couple crashes to desktop, a couple quests that I’ve had to abandon because they seemed glitched out, I’ve suddenly died because my character has inexplicably propelled himself into a wall at 100mph while trying to climb a ledge, I’ve had clothing items straight up disappear when I tried to put them on, etc. The performance is also occasionally stuttery and sometimes slows to a crawl even on a GTX1070.
Not sure if another update is forthcoming or if this is as complete as the game will ever get, but at the moment? Yeah, there’s fun to be had here, but you gotta put up with a lot of jank.
