Usually when you hear about a Patch coming up, you think about fixes, improvements, better performance rating or eventually additional content. Well, this is not the case for the latest Call of Duty: Ghosts patch for Xbox One, since users are reporting performance drops after updating.
The Onslaught DLC along with its stability patch have degraded the performance for Microsoft’s latest next-gen console, leaing to slower framerate during cetrain points on the map. And as we all know it, framerate drops are the worst kind of issues anyone wants to face.
David Bierton from Digial Foundry has stated that when in the Stonehaven map, “it’s immediately obvious that things are not quite right. While the game does indeed hit 60fps in this stage, frame-rates are dramatically impacted when the whole level is in view, with metrics varying between 46-60fps as we run across the landscape. As frame-rates fall below the desired 60fps target, we also see the appearance of some screen-tear, adding some judder, making drops in smoothness more noticeable.”
It is also said that looking through the scope in certain points of the map, players could experience framerate drops as low as 30 FPS. Activision is expected to release a patch soon to fix the issue, though nobody knows how the buggy patch was released in the first place.
