    Humm, its tempting though Dice have said they will reset all early access stats at midnight, still early access.

    Me too. Total rubbish the reports saying you need 580 SLI to run on Ultra.

    i believe them, Beta was running in 30 to 40 FPS at 2560x1440 4xAA on all High. could very well require 580 SLi to play Ultra.

    I'm playing on ultra at 1920X1080 and it runs at 40-50 fps with a single 570.

    I think they mean to play at 60fps you need twin 580.

    I'm playing on ultra at 1920 x 1200 and it runs at 60-70fps with a single oc'd Gigabyte 580, so I'm thinking to play at 60fps on higher resolutions you'd need sli'd 580's. For 1920 x 1200 the ultra settings with a regular 580 should provide adequate frames rates i.e. above 40 :).

    Glad to hear this tbh! I just couldn't afford to SLI but wanted the game at its prettiest. I run at 1920 x 1200, fingers crossed those extra few pixels don't push it below 40fps which I can live with.

    I played a couple hours last night. SP pretty boring, very linear.

    MP very good. They have sorted most of the beta issues. There were too many random deaths though.

    Stuck at work now. I took Friday off work in anticipation of the uk release date, didn't realise I would be able to get early access with a proxy!


    Use a proxy and play now!
