      Already getting 90 frames at max settings on my 1080 GTX with dips to 80 every now and then. I wonder if there's enough optimization to keep it at 90 more than 98% of the time for my set up.

        I grabbed it on PC.. haven't had a chance to play it yet. Just got home from work.

        Honestly I'm completely in the dark on this game.. friends at work were getting it and convinced me to buy it. I really don't know a damn thing about it.
