Gamepass PC - Windows 10. RTX 3080, 64 gig ram, Intel Core i7 10700K.
Game will periodically freeze when travelling around the world. The current frame is frozen on screen, and background ambient sounds continue. The game must be force quit via the task manager. Once this happens it is very easy to reproduce by simply walking in the same direction again once you load up the save file again.
This typically happens while walking for a long distance on the world. Resuming the game and attempting to travel in the same direction will continue to freeze the game. Using admin teleport will also freeze the game, but this time it will freeze on the loading screen with the progress at a very low percent. It feels very much like trying to load certain region of the map cause the freeze. If I do this many times, eventually i can journey into the problem area.
Game does not freeze while walking around on the map.
All I can say is play the Gamepass PC version with my specs and try to admin teleport around a bit and or walk long distances. I have tried several solutions suggested in these forums including: full reinstall, reducing graphics settings, turning off g-sync, and also some ini file modifications about garbage collecting. No luck.
