Call of Duty: Black Ops III released today across an array of different platforms, and it looks like PC gamers are getting the short end of the stick.

Many who picked up the game for Windows are having major issues with Treyarch’s new shooter, citing unacceptably low frame rates and in some instances an inability to play the game entirely.

Polygon notes that users have taken to the official Call of Duty forums as well as Steam’s Community forums to level their complaints, with several claiming the “game doesn’t even start.”

Treyarch is aware of the issues and has suggested players edit one of the game’s INI files. “There have been reports of certain i5 CPUs having performance issues causing very low frame rates – We are still working on the final solution for this issue, but we have had reports that changing WorkerThreads = 4 to WorkerThreads = 2 in your config.ini file can help.”
