Cutscenes are lagging and stuttering in Persona 5 Strikers

Why are the cutscenes lagging

P5S came out for the PC platform today, and it has received a very overwhelming response from the community. The game immediately got a ton of reviews on Steam after launch and everybody is loving the game so far. After all, Persona 5 Strikers was one of the most anticipated games of 2021.

But things are not so smooth for everyone who bought Persona 5 Strikers on their PC. The cutscenes or the audio on the cutscenes are lagging for them. And even the players with really high-end gaming PCs are complaining about this on the Persona 5 Strikers Steam Discussions page.

Is there a fix

Let me tell you that I have personally encountered this issue on my personal rig. I am using a RTX 2070 paired with a Ryzen 5 5600x. I didn’t necessarily fix the issue, but I did find a workaround.

The first thing I did was set the Screen Mode to Windowed Borderless. After that, I did the exact same thing that I did when I was having this same issue in Persona 4 Golden. I used MSI Afterburner to limit the FPS to 25. Now the cutscenes are no longer laggy for me. It’s a decent workaround until a patch comes out.

Unfortunately this problem has nothing to do with the PCs or Operating System of the players. It is an issue from the side of the developers. This game comes with Denuvo DRM which is causing huge number of problems.

Opening cinematic is nearly unplayable for some user, video and audio skips all over. It looks like Denuvo is dragging down the performance of the game. The only fix is to wait until the developers patch this issue from their side.

You would think that cutscenes would just play like videos, but they are being actively rendered with your GPU/graphics card, so that might be the reason why there’s lag.

Some are saying that they fixed the issues by moving the game from HDD to an SSD, but there is no confirmation regarding this.
