Notes

  1. Unreal Engine 4 engine build: 4.25[1]
  2. 2.0 2.1 File/folder structure within this directory reflects the path(s) listed for Windows and/or Steam game data (use Wine regedit to access Windows registry paths). Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/775500/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (775500) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
  3. The actual game size is only 16.5 GB.[10]

    Tested by creation the steam_appid.txt in the executable folder and putting 775500 in the first row of that file. Game starts without Steam required as a result. Retested the DRM-free fix after the update on July 7, 2021 to make sure it still works.

    Tested with a custom resolution of 2560x1080.

  7. Verified by User:Fayaine on 2021-06-23
    Tested by taking screenshots on low and high. Other than the texture quality improving the filtering into the distance also improved thus implying it scaling with said option.
