How to Fix FPS Drops and Stuttering in A Plague Tale Requiem: Plague Tale Requiem has finally arrived on all major gaming platforms. I have to say this is one of the most demanding games I have ever seen.
For those of you who don’t know, Requiem is a Third-person Action-Adventure title developed by Asobo Studios and published by Focus Entertainment. The game is the sequel to the 2019 plague title, Innocence.
In this game, you play as Amicia de Rune and Hugo de Rune, who travel to the south of France to find a cure for Hugo’s blood disease. Along the way, you’ll meet curious soldiers and hordes of rats that are spreading the Black plague.
A Plague Tale Requiem‘s gameplay and mechanics are similar to Innocence, but with an overhauled combat system. As Amisia, use weapons like knives, crossbows and Slings to deal with the enemies you encounter during the game.
Crossbow bolts, rocks and projectiles can now be combined with alchemical mixtures and tars that increase the radius of the light source. that you create with Ignifers and Extinguis, and Can also be used to burn enemies.
For games, this is enough. Let us now look at the performance of the game on PC. To be honest, I didn’t expect much as the developer announced the requirements for the game.
So this game is very heavy and not for everyone. Also, users who start playing the game without proper GPU are facing problems like FPS drops, stutter, random, Freezing, lag etc.
Anyway, the developer recommends some fixes that you can try to fix these problems.
How to Fix FPS Drops and Stuttering in A Plague Tale Requiem
Firstly, if you have a good GPU like RTX 3070 and you are getting good FPS in games but you are experiencing random stutter. Second, it’s a good idea to limit the frame rate your game can get. Stuttering while playing games is greatly reduced and GPU overheating problem is fixed.
The game doesn’t have an option for him to limit FPS, so he used the Nvidia control panel to set it. Here’s what you have to do:
- Launch Nvidia Control Panel.
- Click Manage 3D Settings.
- Click on the Program Settings tab.
- Click Add and choose Ascent.
- Select ‘A Plague Tale: Requiem – from the list of Windows programs.
- Check your maximum frame rate setting.
- Set it to 60 or something that your PC can handle consistently.
- Go in-game and turn on V-Sync.
Nvidia has already released game-ready drivers for A Plague Tale Requiem. The version is 522.25 and was released on October 12, 2022. You can download it from GeForce Experience or visit this link to download the driver manually. However, I haven’t heard anything from AMD.
Once that’s done, change your game’s video settings appropriately and take advantage of settings like DLSS to improve performance. Just turning on DLSS erases most of the stutter and FPS drops experienced with the RTX 3060 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti.
If changing the settings doesn’t solve the problem, then you can go to Nvidia Control Panel, and make your GPU more focus on [performance] instead of [quality] by clicking on ‘Adjust image settings with preview’, selecting ‘Use my preference emphasizing’,” and and drag the slider all the way to ‘Display‘.
Disables the overlay currently being used. Applications such as Discord, Nvidia GeForce Experience and Steam are known to cause problems with overlay games. So disable them all.
On the other hand, if you have demanding applications running in the background, some of them may freeze or stutter as they consume a lot of resources. Additionally, A Plague Tale Requiem only requires 16 GB to run the game at 30 fps. Open Task Manager, select the Processes tab, and click CPU. Make sure the arrow next to it is pointing down.
It gives priority to resource-intensive applications. Look for processes that are you do not needed but are consuming a lot of CPU. Right-click them and click End Task.
