HI, so i am having issues with the game. it installed fine and everything but when i try to play it it lags extremely bad to the point where i cant play it. I have a gaming laptop that runs Watch Dogs and Battlefield 4 on the highest graphics settings flawless so it cant be anything wrong with my laptop. Any advice?

Could you maybe supply some information of your laptop? Processor, RAM, Video Card, your Operating System, etc.
Also within the game, please enable the console (under settings), bring it up and then type "stat fps" (without the quotes). This should give you FPS information in the right side of the screen. Let us know which values you get.

Hi Samsquanch2355! Thanks for picking up the game!

One of the MOST common laptop issues is when the laptops arent set to performance mode--this is usually a problem with laptops that have two graphics cards (an intel integrated one and a beefier one). Is your laptop like that?

Well, 10fps seems low for that card. I would expect you to be able to get 30-45fps in most situations without a problem--but that intel card could indeed cause that much of a drop. Here's how to force it in the Nvidia Control Panel, if you aren't sure:

(Only the first half of that is relevant, the GeforceExperience probably won't help much).

The other big thing to try is to restart the machine--especially if it's been a few weeks/months since you've restarted!

Please let me know if those help!
