While some folks may be upset with the cross-play features being toned down for the time being, there are unfortunately a fair number of players ruining things for all types of gamers. However, it is great to see that some of the issues I had with the game during my review session, such as the stuttering framerate are being addressed rather quickly and efficiently.
Playing as either the Victims or the Family in this intense asymmetrical multiplayer experience can be some of the most exciting gaming moments you experience, so make sure that you’re checking out our Texas Chainsaw Massacre section below to get your hands on all of the information you could need.
