Callisto Protocol is a mess, sitting on 38%. They stuck in ever-popular Denuvo DRM at the last minute, and there are the what I now guess are standard release day performance issues. I bring this up because Callisto defenders are pointing at Darktide as another game with at-release performance issues. Somehow, it comes out with better reviews. I don't know how much that can be attributed to 40k fans alone. Lots of 40k games get turd ratings.
I'm seeing elsewhere that this is blamed on shaders not pre-compiling on games using Unreal Engine 4. I don't know about the details to that, the last UE I dug into was for UT2004.
I have a vast tolerance for development delays, especially considering COVID times. Would rather see games like Darktide delayed 3 more times than play them in a sorry state. I thought about it last month when I snagged the free copy of Vermintide 2, but something in the back of my mind told me to wait.
