    Yep. No SLI support and not even a way to "force" it with another profile yet. I've got FPS capped at 45 and Adaptive AA on, so it's not that bad. Definitely not the kind of performance that I'm used to though.
    What's the graphics on? I can't get Game Bar to open in Odyssey, how about you? It seems like game mode is now either on or off (in Windows settings) Game Bar used to allow you turn it on or off per game.

    Is Odyssey any good story and gameplay wise? I see it on Steam, but it's frakin' expensive! And I see they have added a "ultimate edition" to it ontop of Gold and Deluxe? What the hell? Guess I'll wait for a sale.

    I just started playing it and I've finished 4-5 quests on the starting island of Kefalonia. I'm enjoying it, Alexios (main character) seems more fun than the one in Origins and the story so far seems interesting even though no major plots have come out of it yet.

    I think this is going to be a big step up from Origins in terms of an RPG, story wise and gameplay. Read one of the first reviews on Steam and they go over some of the things that will make this different and better.

    Origins was worth the money, this one will be too. I did get Origins on sale though I got 20% off Odyssey in Uplay for 100 Ubi credits also. You may have missed out on that one but check Uplay in case. If you have something else to play wait for a sale.

    Thanks for the impressions The game looks neat with added roleplaying and character progression (I played Origins and thoroughly liked it), but that price tho… The game may have a ton added, but I'm not paying $70-135 for it. I checked Uplay for a discount (I have over 1000 of those U-coins), but I couldn't see much. Even if it's still available, Uplay is cluttered with tabs which didn't help my search. And It's using Euros for currency which makes the prices even higher for me.

    Yeah, Game Bar won't open up anymore if you're in fullscreen mode in a lot of games.

    Graphic Quality: Custom
    Adaptive Quality: 45 FPS
    Anti-Aliasing: Adaptive
    Shadows: High
    Environment Details: Ultra High
    Texture Detail: High
    Terrain: High
    Clutter: High
    Fog: High
    Water: Very High
    Screen Space Reflections: High
    Volumetric Clouds: Very High
    Character Texture Detail: High
    Character: Ultra High
    Ambient Occlusion: High
    Depth of Field: High

    @Faith the 20% still looks to be available, here's what I see in Uplay. Try navigating to the same area.

    @blackrose You could probably drop a few settings to get 60 fps and still look great at 4K right?

    Probably. I've messed around with the settings a bit and haven't noticed any dramatic changes. Volumetric Clouds is supposed to be a framerate killer, but I haven't noticed much difference even if I completely turn it down. I may try to mess around a little more tonight and see what I can come up with.

    Edit: I managed to average 58 FPS in the benchmark on the Low setting with AA turned off.

    Thanks. I found it, but it's still too expensive for me at this time. I'll wait. I have a few games not finished yet anyway, like Tomb Raider. By the time I can start play it it's probably on sale.
