12/10/19 0410CST...game still not available for install.
I'm installing right now. The download is 21.5GB.
Is the game any good?
Just played through the tutorial and the 1st mission. I really like it so far. They nailed the BattleTech atmosphere and I like how they have borrowed some UI designs from the BattleTech strategy game. That way you feel right at home in MW5.
Performance at 1440p (144Hz) all maxed out is good on my 9900K, 2080Ti, 32GB RAM and 970EVO Plus SSD. The CPU is bored and stays cool. RAM usage is about 10GB, video memory between 5GB and just under 6GB. Frames per second are very much depending on the on-screen action. They can go up to the near max of 130fps when there is nothing going on and they drop WAY down to the 40s when there is a lot of destruction happening really close by. Most of the time I'm getting 80-ish to 100fps. There is no noticeable stuttering. No crashes or bugs so far.
I have only played with mouse/keyboard for now and the controls are great out of the gate (yo bust a rhyme there, bitches!
). It looks really promising so far but it will take a few more missions to uncover whether the game really has any strategic depth. You can outfit your mechs, negotiate contracts, work on rep etc. but this early on there is no way to tell if your choices really matter. The potential for depth is there, however. It could turn out to be really awesome. We'll see...
My only gripe this early on is that the hangar NPCs are static mutes. It would have been a nice touch if they would at least acknowledge your presence like in most games... like 'good to see you, Sir
' or whatever. That's just a minor gripe though. Otherwise there really isn't much to complain about (yet).
I'm looking forward to playing more tonight. Feels good to finally be back in a 'Mech after all these years
