[Bug] Motion Blur

Description: The option to enable and disable Motion Blur does nothing at all. There is also Motion Blur on by default it would seem.
Game mode: Online & Singleplayer
Problem: Performance
Region: All

Playing Exiles on the PS4 I noticed that when moving there is a very bad blur affect that was not visible on the PC version of the game. Going into video options I enabled Motion Blur to see if this changed anything and it didn’t I then un-enabled it and it didn’t change anything again. I suspect that Motion Blur is enabled by default and that it will not change no matter what you do.

Repro steps: As described above.


I have been having the same issue on my 4k Roku TV, just picked up a new 4k compatible HDMI in the hope that it will help. Have you found a way to get rid of those trails/blur? What kind of TV do you have?

I have the same problem, and the worst problem is that the motion blur is keeping me from playing the game, I have no idea why someone would play with that enabled, it hurts my eyes to an unbelievable degree.

New cable did not resolve the issue and since all other games work we can rule out the TV.
I turned on motion blur and did a full restart of the PS4 which also did not fix the problem.
I turned off motion blur and did another full restart of the PS4 and also no change.

You would think more people would be speaking about this issue, it seems like a huge oversight for a released product. Have to agree with Cristari, I don’t think the motion blur setting does anything.

Between this, the stamina bug that has been around since I played at the beginning of early access (PC), items and thralls disappearing, etc. You have to ask why release something that’s not properly tested or finished. I’m a little bummed out. I love the Conan lore, liked AoC and this game still has a lot of potential. I’m just disappointed this is what we get I guess.


The only “blur” I ever get is while swimming or near a body of water, where there seems to be a sort of afterimage in the water when walking/running/swimming, looks especially strange with torches. If this is meant to be a sort of reflection effect, it’s not working as intended, because it doesn’t look like a reflection and it doesn’t occur when standing still or floating on the water’s surface.
