Admittedly I’m not working with a very high-performance machine, but I was able to play the Big Alpha on “low” settings at full resolution (1920x1080) without any major hiccups. Now during the beta, the video sections stutter and the audio lags behind, sometimes skipping entirely. I got input latency of almost a full second in-game. I turned down the resolution and surprisingly the in-game rendering was smoother than the video playback, but still with some major input latency.
I love the game and wish you guys all the best, but if this is how the game is going to run all of a sudden, I’m not going to be purchasing this game in the foreseeable future.
