I'm glad I'm not good at noticing fps drops. I did notice in the hub world in first person but in action and 3rd person I thought it was fine lol
As said, I'm glad I don't notice it much.
I don't like how it is 1st person when you walk around in the hub, and then switches to 3rd person for game play. I wish it was all 3rd person. And it is TOO SLOW walking to your suit each time.

agreed on the slow base walking. It’s a bit jarring. Also you can’t put down way points on the base map to find your way around.

A lot of fixes coming in for the open demo this weekend. Might be worth giving it another try. Specifically mentions rubber banding and server performance.

Won’t get to play the open beta as I’ll be away all week. I’ll be interested in impressions from those who played the VIP demo.

I'm definitely going to try and give it a solid, open minded try. I'm going to jump on PC too to see if things are different. I think there's potential here if they can fix a lot of the issues. Of course this weekend is going to be open to all platforms and anyone so that could just get ugly.

I'm hoping that my issues were more lag and that a smoother game will be a lot more fun.

I might have you on there already but I'll check. Should be on this weekend and as long as it isn't complete garb I'll be playing it through Origin Access.

Played a couple of hours this morning. The amount of stuff that happens on the screen during battles is just insane. Can hardly see anything lol

So it's even worse then last week for me can't get in a game after quitting and reloading 3 times. Fun game when it works but not interested in it in this state.

Also let me walk faster dammit

Deleted demo. Game is s***e and incredibly boring. Controls are not the least bit intuitive and the gun play is crap.

It is not a shooter like destiny or divsion. It more about the abilites first and mostly then guns. It is more like warframe or diablo.

I tried PC this time. FPS is still janky. I turned it down one step from ultra and it plays a little better. For PC on a 1080 I would expect more, but this is at least steady.

I went in wanting to like the game. I want to like the game, but I just don't. The combat turns into peeking around corners waiting for your abilities to recharge. Nothing about the game pulls me in. A game like this should pull me in and make me want more.

I get that this is more RPG and story, but the action is something we're going to be grinding over and over. Even on PC the controls are clunky. It is actually worse on mouse and keyboard somehow.

I didn’t notice anything. Load screens are still too long. Performance is still solid and gun play is aces. Looking forward to the final game.

No I realize that. I was expecting this to be my new favorite game and instead I'm just incredibly disappointed in it. Probley the reason why I'm being so harsh.
But I honestly don't think it's very good from the five or six hours I've played including today. I found no satisfaction in killing enemies or the gameplay. I think it's really boring to be honest.

Funny how you're supposed to be these all powerful javelin and even foot soldiers and small animals are massive bullet sponges. It's quite laughable really.

Spent a couple hours doing freeplay and a couple missions. Really enjoyed it. Game looks great but yea performance is weird. It places really well for the most part, then just randomly goes to 30fps lock for a bit, then back up.

If you make a good build you will destroy everything quick with combos.

This game was made to make builds and I believe guns in the end will have status effects to help your build.

Game plays more like a mmo than anything else.
