There is a "new" game about that is known as Fortnite BR. Sees relatively fun and has combined King of the Hill (PUBG style) scavenging (DayZ style) and cartoony like graphics but still realistic.

It is Free to play and is around 3-4GB. Runs on low end systems quite well.

My name in game is Scranax (IDK how I came up with that) add me and we can jam together.

I am still learning but have the building and scavenging down pat. 

Anyone keen to jam? Just add me in game (The in game friends manager is terribly buggy) I am generally online 6-10PM. 

Cheers

I wouldn't call it "new" lol, it is a good game though. I enjoy the PVP (Battle Royale) and the PVE paid version of the game. I probably will get around to playing it again in the next fe months but at the moment made and my buddies are playing a mixture of Rust, Ark and the Forrest. I am also filming a series on a closed BETA simulator that I was given access to.

I've clocked up almost 5 days worth of gameplay on Xbox One. I don't seem to be getting bored of it either.

I know it aint brand new but its been around for a short time period compared to others and there was minimal discussion here.

It downloaded 4GB of files, I didn't check the install directory so I don't know what it decompressed to.

I've been playing the PVE for about 3 months on PC (according to the daily login rewards), but I haven't played BR much since it was released.

 

Each weekly patch they release is between 1-4gb, confirm install is about 17gb.

If anyone want to join my NZ Discord channel feel free. There is quite a few "locals" on there and we all play a large range of games. Its handy to have voice chat when playing in a team with certain games, Also handy if you want to avoid in game chat.

User Settings > Appearance > Hardware Acceleration (scroll to the very bottom).

 

I haven't had issues myself but I've read of people having FPS drops, and turning this setting off fixed it.
