There’s always bugs when games go online. It’s the natural order of things, but some are worse than offers. For the recently released Star Wars Battlefront, some gamers are experiencing poor performance when they use their dual graphics cards. EA has heard these complaints and offered an explanation as well as a solution to the problem:
“A driver issue causes dual graphics card setups with AMD Crossfire to suffer performance drops. AMD is working on a driver update for this issue. In the meantime, disable one graphics card to avoid performance problems. AMD players can change their Crossfire settings through the Catalyst Control Center.
- Right-click your Desktop and select Catalyst Control Center.
- Open the Graphics menu.
- Click CrossfireX.
- Uncheck Enable Crossfire.
- Click OK to save your settings.”
This is also happening to NVidia dual graphics cards, to which EA suggests: “Update to NVIDIA’s Star Wars Battlefront Game Ready driver from the GeForce Experience, or download the driver directly from GeForce.com.”
Also, the Xbox One gamers have been unable to connect to matchmaking, EA has claimed to have resolved this: “We’ve fixed an issue causing problems with matchmaking or joining servers on Xbox One. If you’re unable to matchmake or join servers on Xbox One, close your game and check for a game update. Once updated, you should be able to join servers normally.”
Star Wars Battlefront is currently available on PS4, Xbox One and Windows PC.
