Anyone else experiencing severe performance issues with this? Mostly upon saving/loading.
I have not noticed any differences. You might want to supply your machine specs to see if anything sticks out.
Oh, my machine is old enough that it's right about ready to blow up (hell, the game doesn't even allow me to play the largest due to lack of memory). I opted out of the beta and now the load times are the same as before, hopefully the release version doesn't have this issue.
On another note, what are these "DLC 7 rewards"?
