Deathloop received outstanding ratings from various famous sites like IGN a 10/10, a 4/5 from Common Sense Media, 10/10 from Gamespot and 88% from Metacritic. Despite these the steam review for this game has dropped to mixed.
This downfall in the review on steam is due to the lags and stuttering users are facing on their PCs which make this game difficult to play and is very irritating. Developers said that they are looking into this, and it is their top priority.
Cause of the lag
The main cause of this may be due to the DRM denuvo protection this game has. As the denuvo protection makes it difficult for the game to be cracked and pirated but in return comes with many lags and fps drop for users.
In the denuvo protection games a heavy CPU and GPU utilization is used and this causes an irregular delays between the graphics processing unit (GPU) and the image on your display which results in fps drops and stuttering.
When this will be fixed?
Recently in the Reddit page of Deathloop developers Bethesda responded to one of the meme on the performance of the game, and they said that they will make it top priority and look into it.
