Look let me say straight up I love the concept of this game.
The immersion factor is top notch, the gameplay loop (whilst limited) is fun. Being able to play a first person ‘Johnny Castaway’ is great fun!
I play a lot of Survival games on console as I love the genre (Ark, Long Dark, Green Hell, Minecraft, DayZ etc)
But the Xbox Series X was released on Nov 10, 2020 and we STILL have no next gen update at all for this game.
I play this game on the Xbox Series X. It’s a beefy unit (in a console sense) and I’ve really enjoyed the drastic performance increases across a lot of my older games.
But THIS game still runs at an unacceptably BAD level.
I have a moderately built up base and I STRUGGLE to get a constant 30fps playing this game.
Going from something like Ark which had it’s ‘next gen’ update within the first month of the Xbox Series release running at a silky smooth 60fps locked to THIS is so jarring and painful…
I was hoping that with the Multiplayer Update we’d see SOME sort of FPS update here at the very least but nope… not a thing.
I get that this is a small development team but the really bad performance here (nearly a full YEAR after the next gen consoles are out there) is really getting painful to deal with.
For those of us lucky enough to actually have a next gen console in hand, we’ve moved on from that 30fps acceptable standard.
This game really should (at the very least) be running at 60fps LOCKED (even at 4k).
There’s a lot of promotion on this game again now that new Multiplayer update is live, but the performance issues on this game really need to be called out.
