"Available on August 31, 2019, 2:00 AM"

For what it's worth, the time and date is the same for AU, GB and US. Going by that, New Zealand should be able to play the game in 40-odd minutes whereas GB will have to wait almost 12 hours.

edit.
Or maybe I am wrong going by what Killer Welshman has said. :/

You can pre-install on PC, but not Xbox.

It's going to be a long night.

I went to download it at midnight and it is at 17:00 BST (UK time).

In other news, reviews so far have been good. Two 9/10's and a 7/10. I'm not a massive rush because I'm playing Control and loving it, but I'll be playing it once some guides are up for sure.

Will this be like layers of fear or outlast? If it's a story game, definitely in, but I just don't enjoy survival horror at all.

Just a heads up in case anyone can't find it on the game pass, search for it in the store and you can install it from there. Just thought I'd mention because it's not showing up in the game pass tab at all for me

This game runs like chaffed anus. The motion blur is intolerable and can’t be turned off. The frame rate feels like it hovers around 20fps. I’m playing on an Xbox One X and I’ve gotta say if this is the enhanced performance of the game god help anyone playing on an Xbox One or Xbox One S.


Huge disappointment considering following the dog around and stuff is actually pretty neat.

Mixed feelings so far. Definitely many performance issues and no matter how I set the aim sensitivity, it always seems off. And in my personal opinion, the game would benefit from not having the dog in it at all. It kinda breaks the immersion when you gotta shuffle around with inventory/command wheels and always make sure he doesn't run off somewhere. I'd much rather enjoy the spooky forest on my own, at my own pace.

Fairly good game, but as mentioned before, has some serious performance issues. Can't really say I'm annoyed by the low FPS or shitty sensitivity, but I had to reload my game twice now, just because I got stuck and couldn't get past a certain point.

Saved it, exited to the main menu, reloaded it and of course it didn't threw me right back at where I left it, that would've been too easy I guess? Had to replay certain scenes (even re-do a fight), and when I finally managed to get back at the point where I previously got stuck, it worked like a charm...

I know it's day 1 (or day 0 if you like), but things like this are always annoying. Good thing I have Game Pass and didn't actually pay 30 bucks for this. As of now, that's not worth it. Maybe with Black Friday when it drops to 10 or 15 bucks, but certainly not 30 in its current state.
