    Finally picked this up at the discount price of $49.79 from Ubi.

    So far, it's quite intriguing but I'm only a couple of hours into it.

    More to come...

    I'm hearing good things so I'll look into it when I get the chance, $50 is still a bit more than I like to pay.

    So far, I'm past what is shown in this video and have none of those issues. Also, I still wish I could upload full 4K images here. Compressed images just don't do the game justice when it's being played at 4K.

    It looks like the usual beta release. I will wait till the beta testers who bought it test it more and if they fix it I will get it some time next year for 19.99 or something.
    I like the setting and the looks.

    Same here over 70 hours of gameplay (this game has a LOT of side missions) and not had any of those issues

    Having done Beta Testing for commercially-released games in the past, I can very much agree with this statement. It certainly looks like something a beta tester may have encountered and kept for something just like this video displays.

    Ubisoft once made quality games. I remember their heydays when they used to make games like Prince of Persia The Sands of Time and all. Every time I saw the Ubisoft logo before a game I knew this was going to be good. Fast forward a couple decades later and they're all just a bunch of clowns.

    I'm not sure when I'll get back to playing this. I was going to last night. BUT, Ubi's servers must have been connected to ancient Hayes Modems! There was an app update and I eventually just quit it and played some more Destiny 2.

    Now, there's a 2.71 GB update to the game and the download is crawling at a snail's pace....old snail on crutches, that is!

    So, I'll be skipping a session again tonight.

    There goes Ubisoft again, now they're throttling gamers down to nothing.

    My colleague uses the expression "wounded snail pace". :D Too bad, I hope it goes back to normal soon.

    BTW, probably everyone and their dog are downloading Black Flag.

    20171213_093339.jpg Not sure if this is still an issue for you but I just loaded the game up and have an update for 3.159GB coming down at 750MB a sec and it reckons about 5 minutes to download
