Game freezes when entering different areas

The game freezes when entering areas including the bowling alley, gameworld ports, theater lobby, exiting the transit station and even going into the boardwalk. This has been a constant issue I can’t get to stop no matter what setting I put the game to.



Does it happen only first time or is it multiple times?

if it happens only the first time you enter an area after loading into a plaza, it’s just loading

Well, for LARGE spikes of freezing it happens the first time but i do get small stutters as I walk around in general.

I do believe this is normal. I’ve had it since day one, which occasional patches smoothing it out progressively. I don’t know the proper terminology, but it’s along the lines of the game world level streaming.
