I played through the game on the exact same laptop. It looked great. You'll have to take the settings down a bit to get a good frame rate but it will play great.

I can't speak to the console version though. I don't know if the console version supports ambient occlusion, if it does not, I'd strongly suggest playing it on pc.

thanks for the advice. so even if i have to turn the settings down a bit im guessing it still is going to look better than the ps4 version? im kinda newish to pc gaming, ive always played on consoles but now with this pc I want to play any game i can on it for better graphics over consoles

I think the graphics might be better on the PS4. It looks like it's locked at 30 FPS on PS4 though which kinda sucks. On my AW M18x R2 I was getting usually 45-60 FPS when detail set to medium and physics turned off.

I think it's a toss-up though. I like gaming on the PC, as you can access forums and such while playing.

i looked online and it says the console verison has HBAO ambient occlusion. and the pc version has HBAO+ ambient occlusion.
