Finally! Looking forward to getting addicted like millions of players on consoles.

Though the System Requirements are very demanding, specially since the Recommended specs are for only 1080p@30fps on High settings. Some settings can go a level further to Highest.

An Action and Co-Op Multiplayer game like this is better played at 60fps, but if even a GTX 1060 can only do 30fps, requiring a GTX 1070 for 1080p@60fps at High settings is a lot. Hopefully, there will be a good compromise between Medium and High settings to achieve 1080p@60fps on a GTX 1060.

There are many images of the settings and of the game running on PC on Capcom's Unity blog:

Monster Hunter: World's producer, Ryozo Tsujimoto, told PC Gamer that:

"When the game launches the visuals will have parity with the console versions, but we’re considering releasing a free update after launch."

PC Gamer - Monster Hunter: World PC visuals 'will have parity' with console versions:

Which just exacerbates the System Requirements issue. Needing a GTX 1060 to do what a base PS4 - a console released in 2013 - does without any substantial visual upgrades is just a waste of power of the newer hardware.

Seems like an unoptimized game, which is weird since Capcom's latest games' PC versions are very optimized - like Resident Evil 7.

apparently this franchise is at risk despite being capcoms best selling game ever. that's some broken sales estimates on their end if that's the case.

About the game


What's up?
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @jmd749: FALD can be a bit hit and miss, depending on how many zones and how aggressive it's programmed to work. Like the Q8 that's got far fewer zones (causing glow around bright objects) (1 Hour ago)
  • jmd749
    jmd749 I'm excited for you, that is a beast of a television, with far superior HDR performance than any OLED with minimal to no burn-in issues. :P (4 Hours ago)
  • jmd749
    jmd749 When I got my OLED 2017 FALD panels were more expensive, it's good to see they've dropped in price. I'd probably have bought the same as you, cause tbf FALD with just under 500 zones is good for a 65" (4 Hours ago)
  • jmd749
    jmd749 @Melmoth: 15ms latency is pretty good and 2K nits will make for some very good HDR viewing, though a higher electricity bill. :P Agreed, I play old games on my PC monitor to avoid burn in on my OLED. (5 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Most of the rough edges in BFV are around stuff like UI. The actual game is solid as hell. (9 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX This is also the first Battlefield game that won't have expansions, which is something consumers asked for. (9 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX It's not really the case where more content is always better. The quality of the content is important. (9 Hours ago)
