While no game is perfect at launch, it does appear that Just Cause 3 is having some significant issues for some users. NX Gamer, a Youtuber who shows he’s playthroughs online, revealed that the Xbox One version of Just Cause 3 has been suffering some incredible drops in framerate, and that playing the game for too long can lead to very long loading screens.
“You do get incredibly long loading times and if you play more than an hour or so it can actually take nearly 15 minutes to reload a save,” NX Gamer’s video analysis says. “And this just looks like memory leakages where it’s clearing out RAM. Some of the AI goes mad, the physics can react really oddly and unfortunately on top of all these problems, the performance with a game that’s totally designed around blowing stuff up and having this chaotic… world doesn’t perform very well at all.”
He goes on:
“In my tests so far we’re looking at a low of 17fps, and this can be really bad and compounded by the fact that along with this the actual physics engine itself and animation system then gets slowdown, which is like to a hark back to the old 16-bit days where the whole game just slows down in presentation. Even though the framerate might actually still be hitting 30, it feels like you’re running and turning through treacle.”
