massive fps drops in combat... response please.

How about fixing the performance in your game before shipping a broken game as.... 'finished'

Older video but its still going on, months after launch, while your working on the console version. Have we been abandoned?

someone displaying exactly whats going on

Please fix this. Its July now, the game launched at the end of last year... this is ridiculous.
Considering the last video was recorded on a rig that beats the recommended settings, has drivers upto date, and all that jazz.

Hi, sorry to hear that you're experiencing performance issues in Space Hulk: Deathwing. Please stick to your original topic and don't spam the forum.

Optimization is part of the development of the Enhanced Edition, you can expect an update in the coming months which should hopefully solve your issues.

In case youy didn't try yet, please contact to make sure the low performances are caused by the game and not an incompatibility.

that and one of your employee's or Streumon's employee's said this to me in a forum...

Hello Sgt Snoke Em,

I'm very sorry to hear that, despite the beta patch, you stil cannot run the game properly. I've been reading as much feedback on the steam hub as possible and I've seen you posting on every topic looking for a solution and trying everything you can.

Your rig should definitly grant you the best possible performance out of this game, yet it doesn't... And I see changing your graphic settings doesn't improve your perfs which is more than odd.

Have you tried unlocking your framerate? Here's how you can do it:

In the meantime, we'll keep investigating your issue to find a solution.

I would hope the problem is getting looked into instead of say, getting ignored because there is a console version which needs to meet a street date.

Edit: apologies, I did not see the previous post... I will do just that.

Apologies for the postings, Its just that a certain number of people playing this feel abandoned or pushed aside. We feel like we've paid to enter into a beta test.

Hey guys, its now the 6th of September.... no performance fix.....
I'm officially stating here that if they game is released on console, and it works, yet my rig with no problems at all with it, drivers are up-to date, EVERYTHING installed on here is legal and legitimate, it beats the recommended settings...
I7 3770k, GTX 1070, 32gb ddr3 ram, ssd's, 750w psu... still experiences fps drops by MORE THAN HALF in combat regardless of the graphics settings yet more modern and resource heavy games JUST DON'T DO THAT ON MY RIG,
than I will be seeking my money back by any legal means necessary, even if that means going straight to you guys.
YOU have sold me a broken product, YOU have promised me and other users (more than you want to admit I'll bet and from what I see on STEAM FORUMS) a fix that HASN'T MATERIALISED, YOU have decided that content is more important then getting a broken product working.
A story...
Payday 2. It came out on consoles awhile ago. I got it on Xbone. I couldn't play it online with others (outside of my friends list) for MONTHS AFTER LAUNCH! which is a problem for any online only shooter. They eventually fixed it for ps4 and xbox one, but the damage had already been done.
Its damn near IMPOSSIBLE to get a match going on that with randoms, NO ONE that I can see seems to be playing it at all. DLC was drip fed to console owners. Once I found out how behind the PC version the console version was I just stopped playing entirely. The only reason I load up Payday 2 on xbox one now is for friends who rarely play it, and that's only if the bag me to load it on console as they need a 4th. Overkill are just lucky I preordered through Xbox Live instead of getting a physical copy. I remember seeing an absolute s*&t load of second hand copies of payday 2 console on sale not long after release. Wonder why?
Load up Payday 2 on Steam however.... COMPLETELY different story.
This is already happening to your game and I'm sorry but you can't rely on the one sided arguments (alternate facts) of the 40k faithful forever.
as of the 6th of September, 9:27pm South Australian time only 26 people are playing....
You need to fix your product, and I don't mean a fancy new gun.
You need to get this game working, because if you don't and its launched broken on console, they'll eat you guys alive, and it'll be your own fault...
This isn't meant to be an angry letter, its meant to wake you guys up to the damage done.
I almost purchased Surge, noticed you guys published it, remembered Deathwing and the fact that despite my rig easily topping the recommended requirements I still get MASSIVE FPS DROPS IN COMBAT BY MORE THAN HALF MY FRAMES, then deleted Surge from my cart in Steam, and got Sonic Mania instead. 100% true story.

Yes I copied and pasted this from the other topic I started. It seems to be the only way to get a response.


Have nothing more to add besides you being spot on correct...

This game has so much going for it, yet it's release and all it's bug and performance issue of which many are still around today has many players waiting for the enhanced edition "praying" all the problems have been solved.

It will be a same to see this game die and end up on my virtual game collection shelf, collecting virtual dust partials.
