Issues unresolved

Shader compilation stutter

The game compiles shader at startup but still suffers from severe shader compilation related stutters during gameplay, this occurs every time a new effect is rendered and thus every time a new shader needs to be compiled.


Stutters while traversing in the game

The game can stutter when moving around in the environment of the game. This is independent from settings or hardware.


Low CPU and GPU utilization

Low CPU and GPU utilization resulting in low FPS and stuttering


Issues fixed

  1. 1.0 1.1 File/folder structure within this directory reflects the path(s) listed for Windows and/or Steam game data (use Wine regedit to access Windows registry paths). Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/1774580/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (1774580) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
  2. Please note that the system requirements on storefronts and even on the EA website list the Recommended CPUs as 4c/8t, meanwhile those are 6c/12t parts. Specifications on storefronts has not been updated in quite some time, so assuming the system requirements on the game's official site to be true.
