The Sinking City game issues

The Sinking City is a Lovecraftian action-adventure mystery horror video game that hit that was released on Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in June.

Because the game has barely been launched, it goes without saying that plenty of bugs have made their way past their quality assessment team, and now users have started reporting them in.

Frequent The Sinking City bugs

This is a list of the most common bugs found in the Xbox version of The Sinking City:

1. Gamers are experiencing a high amount of screen tearing

Plenty of users have reported experiencing high amounts of screen tearing throughout the game, especially during moments when their hardware had to render high amounts of data, such as being outdoors.

2. Players are experiencing low FPS

Plenty of players have reported that their FPS values fluctuate without any reasonable explanation, even when just standing still in the same area over a long period of time.

3. Long loading times that get longer as you progress in the game

Those that have already played the game to completion have reported that one of the biggest issues that seems to get worse as you progress is the long loading times

4. Textures appear and disappear randomly throughout the environment

Users have reported that sometimes the textures from various elements either disappear entirely or start flickering in what seems to be random behaviour. In the place of these textures there would then either be invisible polygons or surfaces covered by placeholder images.

5. Lip-syncing is far too off the point

A pretty much universal complain regarding the game is the many occasions where dialogues are unwatchable because of the poor lip-syncing of the character models.

6. NPCs are sometimes phasing through solid objects

Players have reported that NPCs have been spotted phasing through solid objects randomly, such as through walls. While not exactly a game breaker since there haven’t been reports of hostile NPCs taking advantage of this bug, it is nonetheless bothersome.

So, these are some of the most frequently reported The Sinking City bugs.
