CPU 100% and GPU 60-80%

★★★★ Novice
Hello, since the game is out on the 15th of November I can not play Battlefront2 anymore.
As soon as I start the game, the CPU goes to 90-100% and GPU goes to 100% without Vsync
In the Alpha and Beta have had no problems. only since the day 1 patch came out I can not play properly anymore.
Have the latest Nvidia drivers installed and even reinstalled the game.
Have an I5-4690k 3.50Ghz 16GB DDR Ram. And a Geforce GTX 970.
I paid 80 € for the Deluxe Edition please help me.
Greetings HoRRoR2410

I have the same problem, my gpu usage is 100% even when starting game at menu and temperature is low (around 45 degrees) not increasing at all, and its very strange and because of this i have 30-40 fps. But  after some endless attempts to restart the game and do some useless stuff like cleaning PC i actually had a one normal game session  with 70-99% usage and increasing temperatute and i had 100 fps and won some games and had so much fun in this beatufil game but then i had to take a break and  closed the game. After that again i am having 100% GPU usage in menu and 30-40 fps Frown

Maybe it is bad optimization  of our graphics card because i have gtx 970 too and i5-4670k

I fixed this by limiting my FPS to 60.
I downloaded Bandicam (it''s free)
I run it in background to limit FPS to 60.
Set it to 'game record mode' along the top.. then under FPS tab turn off the overlay, turn on FPS limiting, and uncheck 'only when recording'
You won't have to record, and it caps the game FPS, keeping the CPU around 20%
