Hi guys,

I'm thinking to install windows 8 on my computer, but i don't know if i get issues with punkbuster or something?

So, does anyone know if i can install it without problems?

It works fine. There are some issues and workarounds, from what I've seen nothing is insurmountable yet.

Here's the thread for all known issues and workarounds. Pretty simple stuff.
