This game is absolute trash to run. It is so unoptimized it is almost a joke. I cannot run it above the low preset without stuttering or having less than 45fps.

Can I run this? I should be able to. I get 15 fps on VERY LOW, and i even double checked to make sure all video options are either low, off, or very low.

It might just barely run -30 fps, worth the shot since the game is free atm!

You were right, I just downloaded it and it runs about 30 fps, sometimes it has some little drops at 15fps but it's playable (i play it in minimum)

I dont know why but I have massive frame drops when the action starts, I usually get 70 fps then it drops to 30 and starts to lag. I'm playing it on ultra everything maxed out

Now that it is free on steam I want to be sure that I can run because i will have to download 17GB and it will be very frustrating if I can't run it.
