FPS issues like low fps, fps drops, and freezing are encountered by quite a lot of players. This is mainly due to the fact that the game is not properly optimized.

Solution: To solve this issue, update your PC’s graphics card drivers. It has helped users to resolve their problems. Also, apply the tips from the game developers and follow our tutorial, below:

If your system is having performance issues when playing the game, please adjust your graphics AND display settings. For example; the anti-aliasing settings SSAAx2 and SSAAx4 are very expensive features, so if you are lowering your graphics settings do not forget to set anti-aliasing back to FXAA. Also consider playing at a lower resolution. Doing this helps improve game performance and you might be able to trade back up to a slightly higher graphics settings because of these adjustments.

Also note that textures at Very High requires over 4GB of VRAM, and using this on cards with 4GB or less can cause extreme stuttering during gameplay or cinematics.

This notice does not encompass all performance issues, but it will help some of you. Issues are being investigated.

Tutorial! Your computer’s graphics drivers will perform and function less effectively if they are out-of-date. It means that your computer is missing the necessary patches and upgrades to help you fix bugs and boost performance. Therefore, it can be the reason for the FPS decrease.

To avoid these types of problems, you can use an automatic tool that will find, download, and install the right driver version on your Windows PC in just a couple of clicks, and we strongly recommend DriverFix. Here’s how to do it:

    I have played many times without problem but this last time, Rise of the Tomb Raider, my keyboard E stops working for interaction. It just stalls and the ice axe icon is pictured in a small icon with the game stalling. To get unstuck, use the C letter and then when trying to use the ice axe, it stalls again and again.
