Against my better judgement I bought this on release day thinking maybe Ubisoft finally did something right. Well, nope.
This game can't run at a decent FPS or smoothness no matter what settings are chosen. Dips down to 15, hard dips into the 40s and completely unsmooth gameplay. I can drop down to 1080p and Med settings and still have those same drops.
RTX 2080 Super
32 Gb DDR4 3200
Game on NVMe M.2
OS on SSD
Requested refund because I am not paying full price for games that don't even run. Why did I even bother buying this. Even Odyssey still will not run very well on my rig.
I have the exact same issues. I have a Ryzen 3900x and RTX2080. Games running on M.2 and OS on SSD. 32 GB DDR4 3200.
1440p monitor but even if I choose medium settings and 1080p I can't get a smooth experience.
I requested a refund, but knowing Ubi they will likely deny it. Will be the last Ubisoft purchase I ever make - very frustrated. Should have known better..Odyssey had the same issues even know all patched up it is still not great on peformance.
Forgot to mention I too played Odyssey "ok" - I had to tweak settings a lot but was able to at least get through the game.
Forcing DX12 here is probably part of the issue. DX12 games never run good for some reason and Valhalla can only run in DX12 as far as I know.
Pretty disappointed, shouldn't have wasted money on this. Hoping I get a refund will buy again later when/if performance is fixed.
