There isn't much in the ways of graphics options (and the options available dont really hit too hard on the fps) but if you keep it on static fps you can probably run it with few issues

It wont be constant but the drops wont be serious. the lowest drop i get is around 50 but thats only for a second or two.
there are some issues with fps drops in towns which cause this but the battles will be a constant 60.


hope this helps :)

If you keep texture filtering and shadows on standard that will reduce the stuttering (those settings seem to have the issues) it'll run a bit smoother.


This port imo has been done alot better than the other two have been.

These requirements ARE NOT accurate at all. This game CAN run on an intel HD graphics 4000 ! I'm not joking !
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QJd6fCBKct4
tl;dr : runs at 20-35fps, 30 average, 720p on intel HD graphics 4000.

I'd say running sub 30fps is considered below minimal requirements. But if that's acceptable for people than all the more power to them.

Only the first part of the game runs well. As soon as I go to the first city, fps drops and stuttering b-beg-g-gin-s-s. Battles are solid 60 fps, but running around is painfully laggy. My rig is supposed to runs this without breaking a sweat, GPU load is always below 40%! Anyone had any luck solving this?

It might just be driver optimization issues, Has Nvidia released a patch for this game? Cuz it runs perfectly on my system, not a single instance where it felt stuttered or laggy.
