We’re starting to hear about Battlefield 1 beta performance problems including crashes, lag, black screens, and more.
If you’re using a PC and you’re experiencing performance problems, you’ll want to download the latest drivers for your graphics card.
If you’re using a GeForce graphics card, you’ll want to download the brand new GeForce 372.70 driver. It provides the “optimal experience” for Battlefield 1: Open Beta” and should help. If you are using an AMD card, take a look at this fix.
You’ll also want to download the latest version of Radeon Software, 16.8.2. It should help improve your game’s performance.
If you’re noticing lag and texture issues, try turning down your graphic settings. Battlefield 1 won’t look as pretty but your performance should improve. You might also try restarting the game to see if that helps.
