GSY Video PC PS4 Xbox One

Fade to Silence has been available as an Early Access title for almost 3 months and we've been meaning to give the game some coverage ever since it came out. The problem is that it performed so badly on our GTX 1080 that we decided to wait a few patches. Alas, things haven't changed much as even our GTX 1080 Ti struggles to maintain a steady 60 fps framerate, which wouldn't be an issue if it didn't make fighting the evil creatures so cumbersome. The performance issues are not only to blame though, as the combat system is too slow and awkward for its own good in our opinion. The promise of a game mixing a Dark Souls approach to survival mechanics is quite appealing, but for now, it is not convincing enough for us to advise you to put your money down.

Feels like someone stole the Rise of the Tomb Raider engine and made another game :)!
Jokes aside, I like the environment. But combat seems a bit clunky as you mentioned.

Damn, I was looking forward to this one but it seems like the perfomance issues aren't getting anywhere close to being fixed...

This is the one with the awesome survival elements completely ruined by the nonsensical fantasy demon monsters right?
