As I said @LethalSmileZA, your CPU would be the issue I imagine. It barely meets minimum specs for the game to run. Try clean booting your system and then launching the game to see if there is any improvement with all background programs off: https://help.ea.com/en-us/help/faq/how-to-clean-boot-your-pc/

Sorry to hear that you are having issues @LethalSmileZA.


Can I ask you to grab a DxDiag so that we can take a look at your system: https://help.ea.com/en-us/help/pc/how-to-gather-dxdiag-information/

 

The more info we have the better we can help.

Your CPU is just about the bare minimum that you need to run the game @LethalSmileZA.

 

This could be why you are seeing issues with the game running poorly as everything else is fine and more than meets minimum specs.

I cleaned my CPU cooling socket and it seems one of my RAM cards are faulty, it's running now that I removed the faulty RAM

Thankyou for the help
