Read the news report. Yep that's what it says free, as long you have Win8. No I didn't use translate.
For me 2975719 & 2975331 (either one of them) were causing issues but were not mandatory. So I backtracked to a earlier snapshot, reinstalled the critical updates (minus those 2 fellows) and it was ok. I'm on manual updates now until they sort out this nonsense.
It is a big deal if you turned off system restore :D
Also you'll notice the skill changes:
You can basically pick up skills and talents for your class to make up or supplant your gear or play style (like lack of healing or regen) and the talents work pretty well. Plus no penalty to skill swapping.
uh...... 4 infantry maps and one weapon?
For all it's problems Battlefield 4 DLC seems a hell of a lot more value.
Part of Mantle ?
Great article, good to hear that power draw is a little lower on the 280x.
No BF4 beta benchmarks ?
I think you're looking at Loot 2.0 (console has a small subset of these features).
Smart attributes, less drops but more quality ones are good.
Mystic for re-rolling item stats (ROS - think WOW where you can re-roll certain stats on your toon.)
Today in the current state of the game it is relatively easy to get 2-3 legendary items in a run thanks to to the fact that:
1. You don't die as often due to the difficulty and you can tune it to your capability.
2. Magic find % comes with Paragon levels and group play.
So I think if they implement Loot 2.0 features I think it's easier to get upgrades that benefit your character so there's no need for the AH.
There's no gambling feature like D2 but there are gold sinks where you can craft armor pieces that guarantee a primary attribute of your choice. 50k a craft.
It's not hard. Just hit the button to take the picture. It will focus when you do that....
Yup but apparently PC's can't handle soccer balls.
Let me just chime in to say I normally HATE QTE in most games, I have to say this one was actually well done and not at all intrusive.
I did not have missing buttons (I played on a PS3 - Lara on 40 inch screen :D) , the QTEs actually have a slight timing to it, there's a little ding/dong that goes of to tell you when you should start pressing it.
Wait too long or press the wrong button you lose. I found they balanced it pretty well in this game. I got through most of them in 1 or 2 tries at most. Helps if you don't ragequit.
