I've played Heat for a few hours, it runs but it's unplayable for me. I noticed few issues that concern me a lot.


I've Reinstalled the game 3 times and reinstalled Nvidia drivers as well. Problems remain.

I've reported these issues in official forums and also posted on official Twitter with no response. Noticed plenty of people complaining about the same issues as well, not only on PC but on consoles too. Now, since everyone else is busy praising the game there is no room to clarify other issues, so I must bring them to attention.

Issues mainly being: Poor performance, crashes, graphical glitches and fps loss throughout. Low, Normal, High or Ultra settings. CPU usage is insane now.


This by it's self makes the game crash for me on multiple occasions hence my discontent. Plus, the game seems to run poorly with low fps frames and stutter at the race start, with npc's around or during night events in the city.


Note I am not playing at full resolution here so, it's very concerting to me that the game is out at this state. I've tried the game on Low, Normal, High and Ultra with Vsync off with other options lowered. (which makes it worse btw) Usually getting between 45 up to 78 fps at a time. With Vsync on get around 40 to 55 fps and the game still doesn't cooperate. I hope these issues ARE being worked on and will be addressed soon as possible. Have a good day.

@venomtailHD I dont think its an AMD problem, Nvidia users have problems too.

@venomtailHD @DJBassNrg10 it's becoming a trend with EA releases. And also i think the game was poorly optimized for PC or they might have published wrong specs. I dont dont think its a issue from AMD or nVidia side. Also i have already applied for refund i felt thats a better option than waiting for some patch.

For me its working super smooth here 5930k [stock clocks] and a msi gtx 1080 ti gaming x and 64 gigs of ram.

Fps between 80 and 90 on ultra settings @ 1440p.


The only real big problem right now is the crashings and freezing. That makes the game unplayable for me.
