i can confirm this issue aswell.

both myself and my friend cannot play any form of coop / multiplayer games without constant game stutter from it running at like 5 FPS on Xbox series X.

single player works just fine but anything to do with playing with other people is unplayable at the moment.


If it ain’t broke dont fix it.
Well thanks Dev team. You broke it.

Got the same issue on series S and also a friend on PC.

Same issues here on Xbox One, after update multiplayer games runs like 2 fps,

Having the same issue here - multiplayer for my friend and I (I’m on PC, he’s on Xbox) unplayable at 1 FPS.

Same issues FPS is terrible and seemingly only on multiplayer

I got an enhanced graphics patch as part of this update.What exactly did the patch “Fix” because the game was fine before this choppy unplayability

The enhanced graphics pack was there before, you can disable from Steam-Library-DLC and inside the game. The stuttering came with an issue with the update, that’s why there was a rollback to the previous version.
