Anyone else getting an infinite loading screen for act 1 chapter 1? Boot camp worked fine but can’t get the campaign to start!

I never got far into 4, but you’re right to finish it, if you’re close. 5 starts with a recap of 4, but I do wish I’d played it through.

I just did the first chapter last night. Good fun. The multiplayer progress stuff seems overwhelming but I’ll get stuck in this weekend.

The Digital Foundry analysis is due to land later today. Man, that metallic effect does look tremendous!

Why don't we all just admit chrome plating is amazing and chrome everything.

Played this far too much last night and at lunch today :lol: Successful start to the MP got quite a good K/D and some ranked wins, and good progress and well into the campaign, still trying to work out exactly how the open map bits work though I think
you have open map chapters that allow access to certain area's of the map, you can then explore these area's until you go to the main objective and then you end that chapter and start a linear one, getting access to a different part of the map in the next open area section. Could be wrong though


It would be good if we could get some folk on here using the ally feature cuz ya know, I need my achievements en shiz.

This game looks magnificent on One X.

If this is a baseline for the next gen with all games looking at least this good then it's going to be a real treat for the eyes and as both Sony and Microsoft seem to be saying the biggest power increase is the CPU we should see super silky framerates.

I might be interested in this too. I’m rubbish but keen.
