Draw distance visual artifact

Game mode: Online official / Online private
Type of issue: Other
Server type: PvP/PvE-Conflict/PvE
Region: EU
Hardware: PS4


Bug Description:

After patch 2.5 (or earlier?) a veil appeared on the horizon line that cuts off everything behind it and rendering invisible except for the silhouette contour. Because of that the draw distance dropped significantly without any increase on the performance side. On top of that this veil cuts off all VFX that intersects with it. For example, a portion of the smog column that crosses the veil is invisible. Same is for flames of the torch. See the attached video to get the idea.

This veil causes ugly horizon for water surfaces too, and in general is something unwanted, because with it the game feels like it’s always a gloomy weather, always smog and mist.

Hey @3LiON

We’re aware of this issue and it’s fixed internally, coming out in update 2.6 most likely.

Thanks for the feedback.
