Where do I start with this?
I approached Chapter 2 with cautious optimism given the promise of numerous bug fixes that popped up with chapter one. And god knows there were plenty.
I jumped on Tuesday night and all of the previous graphics glitches are still present, there are some new ones, and in some cases they are even worse than before.
The ground texture detail is still gone in many areas of the map. The ground details are mostly a giant blurred mess especially on the pebbles near Mounds of the Dead. All thralls and other building items render in black until you get five blocks away, then they render in correctly. Skins on furniture blur and flicker. When I exit my base, the outside terrain is black for about two seconds, then it flickers in. It seems every fifth frame is skipping and rubber banding is simply awful now.
There are still sound delays during combat while the FX plays catch up.
Characters are still unable to grab onto the top of items when you’re climbing, often resulting in death if you’re high up. It’s even worse if you are holding the repair hammer.
And speaking of repair hammer, holding it pretty much restricts you from doing anything.
Against my better judgement I made more bazaar purchases and picked up the Stormglass upgrade. Credit where credit is due, these are some of the best building items you’ve made to date. The look of my new base is simply stunning. Well done. Naturally, the bazaar went down an hour later and I was unable to access anything of the new blocks. The quality of the new battlepass items is lacluster. Giving us more torches, when it’s common knowledge that flickering flames affect Playstation performance is a bit tone deaf.A quarter of them are wall and floor paints. Utterly unispired. You have great artists on hand, the bazaar should be where they can flourish.
I’ll purchase building updates, but your bazaar prices are insane. Especially given the price and value of previous DLC and given you said you were going to address that.
I love this game, and have done so for years, but you have some serious Playstation issues that would cause a causal player to walk away immediately. We need some assurances that you intend to fix them, especially with you charging us for so many add on features now. Please, please, please put some effort into improving the Playstation experience. It’s never been this bad. While these bugs are not game-breaking, they do ruin the experience.
