Game mode: Online and Single Player
Problem: Invisible enemies, disappearing resources upon collection, rendering issues.
Region: United States
My wife and I play together on our relatively fast internet (no issues in any games). I have a PS4 Pro and she has a standard PS4, but for whatever reason, my version runs much worse on both the Single Player mode and the Online servers. Since we play side-by-side, we can see the issues are exclusive to my console.
So for the issues, whenever I attempt to collect a resource (from trees, nodes, rocks, etc) they disappear after the first hit. I have to walk away and wait for the sound of my axe hitting the resource to register (about 5-15 seconds) and then I can walk about as it reappears to collect the resource. It gets very cumbersome. Meanwhile, my wife does not have this issue. While I have twice the amount of grass that she does, I have 10x the amount of bugs. For example, she is being attacked by a pack of wolves and is calling for help, I run to her aid only to see a hovering sword, but nothing else. A few seconds later she’s dead and the wolves, also invisible, are destroying me from all angles. By the time I reappear, the wolves teleport to the location they are actually at and I die.
Really frustrating. Its unfortunate that I have not seen Funcom address this.
Steps on how to reproduce issue:
- Play on PS4 Pro
