    Im getting over 100fps at 4k with everything maxed on a 3090 but I have noticed that big explosions dont cause a drop in frame rate but an actual pause for a second.

    Make sure you have "Indent" selected for sound type as its the best option for hearing sound effects and immersive dialogue and comments over the music

    I still use DLSS anyway regardless of FPS as it usually offers better IQ overall than native + whatever **** form of AA the game uses.

    For the sake of saving £5, I decided to buy the game via cdkeys. Wish I hadn't bothered now, as its been saying "key available shortly" for going on five hours. So much for preloading.

    @Tek81 - I grabbed it from GMG a week or so ago, it was only £15-17 pre-order and you got a key straight away. I use cdkeys but not for pre-orders anymore unless it's silly cheap ! Have you got the £1 GamePass offer ? like others have said it's on there.

    Loving it so far, gfx are great and it's very atmospheric. I was shooting like mad at first thinking more shots would hit more but no no ! carefully aimed shots slow and take down enemies nicely.

    For ultrawide peeps ;-

    I like what I’ve seen so far. Perfect for a gamepass game.

    I was the same , shooting like mad and not hitting anything. Then I realised that you can shoot low (just left mouse) or high (hold right mouse and shoot) and I was aiming high and shooting over everythings head

    Had a quick go and seems really good, graphics with ray tracing are amazing. GPU fan is going turbo though :)

    Damned city is enormous.

    Has anyone worked out how to change shirt skins yet? I've picked up a few but cant find how to change them. I did find a vendor where you can change your weapon skins but not found one for shirts yet.

    Never heard of this game until today. Had a look at a few reviews and looks like something I would enjoy so picked it up from cdkeys. All downloaded and ready for the weekend :D

    I just watched DF analysis video and DLSS was definitely there as they showed it off. Or are you saying the Windows gamepass store version has no option for it?
