I'm on a 1080, 5800x, 32gb RAM, on NVME storage and I haven't experienced any performance issues that I'd wanna start a fire over. A little stutter when a graveyard wants to pop a dozen skeletons up at once, only times I've crashed are when I'm playing co-op and that's only crashed a couple times in the loading screen. Also running on max graphics. I've gotten a little input delay on my wireless controller, but it has only ever gotten me killed once. I've been playing every title by From Software since Tenchu Z, and this feels like the best form and function of everything they've ever done to date. Shame to hear so many negative outlooks on things on what I think are some of the coolest parts being introduced to the formula. I wonder how people will sound when they beat the game and eventually acclimate to the changes. Personally, just here for the ride and enjoy what they have setup for everyone to experience.
I found the "Ambush Shard" sorcery and wow I can't wait to get invaded now, this shit is gonna be so fun to spam on those backstab spammers.
