    The trial way looks interesting thanks, but do you loose the £12.99 if you cancel?

    I've seen it for £49.99 , looks quite pricey at that price as I just got Call of Duty recently. I think more searching and waiting might be needed as I've also seen the collectors edition for £169 that comes with Tostador :rolleyes: but it does not work :confused:

    If you finish it in quick time @LtMatt you could even smack through Valhalla to get maximum gains from your £13!

    Convince me mate. I've only ever played the benchmark, many times. :cry:

    I have the game already tbf, but I've never really got into games like the Witcher or the Assassins Creed series before as I'm typically action/shooting games, horror type games and Football Manager.

    Yes, that's because the Ultra Preset does not include the optional 4K Texture pack which must be downloaded separately from the game itself for users that meet the requirements to run it.

    I completed it well main stuff after about 80 hours, they brought out extras like River Raids which was naff (but free) and then the Ireland DLC, now the France DLC has been out a while too. Worth playing them, but not at RRP.

    I rate the game as again like Farcry I never played the series before (I dabbled in AC:Unity but not for lots hours) so its good graphically and if your into Vikings its even better. You can even do a story Arch around Norwich for swanburrow or whatever fella is called. :cry:

    Again like farcry if your expecting amazing gameplay and spoiled then dont bother. If you also buy the franchise each iteration then expect the same repetition - dont know why people expect much different when that happens!

    I should give it a go, but I don't think it's my type of game. Just one of those games that I use for benchmarking and not much else. I have a few games like that to measure performance. :p

    That is hilarious to be fair. I can use this when people take pot shots at me.

    All those upvotes give it an air of authenticity. :cry:
