Dumb question, but what price shows up on the launcher for each region? At the moment I'm in Japan and it's showing me 8618 JPY for the special edition which seems really high (it's essentially $80 USD), and since I'm not leaving here until after the pre-order bonuses finish I'm wondering whether to just take the plunge or not.

Incredibly, I can't seem to actually find the loving prices listed anywhere, every website only says it's available for preorder via the launcher (or just shows me the cost for a PS4/XB1 disc).

I managed to stay spoiler free for 12 loving months until the literal week before I can play. What a dumbass.

Nvidia recommends a 2070S for 1440p@60+FPS high settings (and a 2080Ti for 4K medium-high, lol), I know that nobody can know but humor me with your best guesses: would I be able to max it out with my EVGA 1080 FTW which should be slightly worse than a 2070S but not by much, I think?

Anyone else having issues with the game freezing? Iíll be playing fine for a few minutes and then everything will freeze up for a few seconds. The sound keeps going but the visuals freeze, then eventually it recovers and keeps going. Until the next time it freezes.

What Iíve played so far has been great otherwise, just wish I could stop it freezing!

Question for anyone who was getting the stuttering/freezing issue: is it still happening? Iím about 5-6 missions into chapter 2 and itís gradually gotten better to the point where itís hardly happening at all now, maybe one or twice an hour. First time through Valentine was the roughest, that took about 30 minutes for 5 minutes of gameplay, but now it seems okay?

Iíve tried a few of the posted solutions like turning off CPU cores and the like, and none actually helped.

Do you have an i5 CPU? Pretty much all i5s break the game, most recent patch didn't address that.

Iím not that guy, but Iíve been playing fine on an i5. I was getting the stuttering pretty constantly in the prologue, but it diminished when I got to the open world proper. The first few times in Valentine were awful, but now Iím mostly done with chapter 2 and I get stutters maybe once an hour if that.

None of the core disabling or process lasso tricks worked for me - maybe itís because Iím only on a GTX970 and using low settings? 1080p 30fps and the quality sliders are about 3-4/10.

I've been lucky so far with no major crashes or stuttering and been having a blast but oof is getting ambushed or held up in the open by bandits a pain. Even keeping the health core topped up it feels like you can go down really easily when you have no cover to run to and when a good chunk of the starting region is full of open plains...again just oof.

Leveling up this HP bar can't go fast enough.

Iíve found the best strategy for dealing with ambushes is to just ride away as quick as you can for 5-10 seconds. Use that time to draw your weapons etc and heal up before turning around and blasting them.

Side-note: for my first play through Iím going full white hat but itís really loving difficult. Feels like every time I go into a town someone dives in front of my horse and gets trampled, leading to a shootout and unwanted bounty

sorry if this has been answered nine times here, but:

I am having a "CPU pegs to 100% and freezes game for 1-3 seconds every 1-3 minutes" issue. I messed with Process Lasso based on some reddit thread, which did not make a difference.

Any help? I have a core-i5 6500 @ 3.2ghz, so not the newest processor in the world but certainly above spec, also have a GTX1080 and the game looks and runs fine, when it's not glitching.

I have the same processor and a GTX970 and weirdly enough I fixed the issue by just playing the game. My settings are 1080p 30fps and essentially the Balanced preset; it was a bit rough to start with but once I got through the snow prologue area it improved hugely, to the point where Iím 30 hours in, almost finished Chapter IV and get the freezing maybe once an hour. Not the ideal experience, but maybe try that?

Is there a known fix for the neon flashing artifacts yet? I know people were having issues with it on release, but its started happening to me since the stuttering fix patches. It's hard to describe, but roughly: any particle effects with lighting attached like hoof strikes, ricochets, explosions, rain striking roofs etc, the lighting effects render in neon blue and red like emergency lights. I know I've seen people complain about similar issues, but nobody seems to have a proper fix. Any ideas? I'm using a GTX-970 on mostly Balanced settings and DX12.
