It would helps us greatly if you sent us reports about the performance issues you experience via our support form. Please start your messages with tags [performance], provide videos or screenshots if possible (they help a lot) and provide the following information:

  1. What are the symptoms? FPS drops? Stutter? Blurs? Textures not loading/not appearing?
  2. What is the exact context? (e.g. using a sign, a bomb, a potion – which one? night? fire-based effects nearby? rain or other weather effects? a particular cutscene? a boss fight?)
  3. Where exactly the issue occurs (e.g. Novigrad, swamps, Oxenfurt? Which quest? Near which landmark?)
  4. Is performance poor a) from the moment you load a save or b) gets worse with time played? If b) then how long does it take for issues to start?
  5. Drops occur when on a quest in a given location or when just wandering around?
  6. Do you use Xbox One’s ‘Instant on’ feature? If yes, does turning it off and restarting the game help?
