    Hi Michael,
    Do you also plan to provide some benchmarks ?

      Played an hour so far on an unsupported setup (16.04, mesa 18.0, RX 480). Main problem is the jaggies even with highest AA. I suppose something refuses to apply it.

        IIRC the game had the same issue on all platforms. I don't think there were any real anti-aliasing options besides the mostly useless FXAA.

          Honestly, I don't see the point in benchmarking this. It's undemanding on the hardware and most people will probably play it locked at 60fps pretty much regardless of hardware.

          Edit: Also, I don't think it's benchmark friendly. There's no built in benchmark mode.

            You're right.. I was just curious as this is using OpenGL.

              Performance shouldn't be a problem, I played its predecessor on an Intel HD Graphics 620 - runs okayish.

                Life is Strange was based on the Unreal Engine 3 and Before the Storm uses Unity 5 (currently 5.6.5f1). Life is Strange 2 will probably be UE4-title, because Captain Spirit already uses this engine. So, from a technical point of view, we have three completely different games.
                In my opinion LiS:BtS has overall good performance, although there are also worse optimized parts, like the scrolling text on the main screen (sic!).

                  LiS BTS did produced a lot of DirectX related crash on Windows and not just for me, while the original LiS game did not crashed at all. I hope the Linux version will be better with OpenGL

                    Can't tell what in the world the game is about from the trailer.
