Seems to happen in MP too, just had a match that was 90% slow-motion.

Dying @ baywatch bug. I've experienced this mostly in multiplayer shortly before the game freezes without FPS drop. Origin still works. Also have had this happen during cinematics. Dialogue stops and i have to wait like 10 min for it to continue.

Getting this very frequently in Multiplayer.  Makes it pretty much unplayable.

You can minimize the game and then reopen it. Worked for me as a temporary solution to fix the bug without restarting the game.

A few other threads had the consensus that ASUS "gamefirst" software was causing some issues such as freezing even if it's not running... for some reason. I had it and uninstalled it and i was getting freezes and haven't had a freeze since. The multiplayer while having less slow downs after, still runs like hot garbage. Hopefully this helps someone.

Didnt get this in four hours of gameplay. Then I go to Eos and boom slowmotion animations.


Weirdly when I get my scanner out I can move normaly again but when I put the scanner away I sprint slower than I walk with it out...

It happens if you exit the Nomad or if you use the main menu as well. Alt-tabbing out and back in fixes it.

It started after I played MP and it spread so SP. That was an interesting detail for me. And for some god knows why reason pressing F1 stopped it, I think.
