Like, I’m talking SEVERE, and I know it ain’t just me, as two of my friends and a friend of friend are all experiencing the same issue. Me and my roommate both have the Xbox One X, and the friend of friend has a PS4 Pro, and we can all play just fine by ourselves (aside from minor issues like looping sounds, or occasional lag), but when we try to play online via Matchmaking or Co-op, that’s where the issue happens. Sometimes the game crashes and boots us to home screen, but most of the time it crashes so hard that the entire system freezes and then shuts down.
We’ve tried testing our connections, didn’t help.
We’ve tried recalibrating the consoles, didn’t help.
We’ve tried messing with both console and in-game settings, and still nothing.
We’ve done just about everything we could think of, and yet the game still crashes so hard that it shuts our consoles down. At this point, we’re almost burnt out on the game just because of this one MAJOR issue, simply for the sake of our consoles and our wallets, because honestly, no matter the game, if there’s a chance it literally breaks our system, it isn’t worth playing. We all pre-ordered, and at this point, it’s nearly a waste of a $100, and that’s only because a problem this bad should have been seen and fixed before the game ever went live. Not gonna lie, it pains me to say that, because I’ve played this game series for a VERY unhealthy amount of time, and have forgotten more about these games than some players will ever know; example being that finding every single Vault Symbol in B2 is probably the hardest part in the game, simply because it doesn’t count for all your other characters, and doing it a second time is a bazillion times more worthless than Ava.
If anyone knows how to fix this issue that’d be wonderful and very much appreciated, but until this issue is resolved, I guess Overwatch still has my attention…
