NPC appear to stutter at distance

Game mode: Single-player
Type of issue: Performance
Server type: PvE
Region: NA

Immediately following the recent patch (05/08/2020) the NPC’s that appear at distance stutter significantly. It is very evident when at a location such as a city, where there are NPC’s at varying distance. Those close to the player move in a normal manner while the farther distanced NPC 's stutter jarringly.

There were no software updates made to my PC or hardware changes between the last time the game ran smoothly and the state of the game after the recent patch. Game file integrity was verified through Steam.

Please provide a step-by-step process of how the bug can be reproduced. The more details you provide us with the easier it will be for us to find and fix the bug:

  1. Launch single player game and play. Bug is persistent and manifests anywhere NPC’s spawn.

yes, same here. I’d love to revert back to update 39.

Hey @Architect

We’re aware of this and our team is looking into it.
Thanks for the feedback.


I am confirming this bug and that even lowering the video settings/quality does not get rid of the NPC stutter.


Hotfix appears to have fixed this issue for me. Good deal!
