I've been freezing since I started playing the multiplayer. It's not my connection. This is absolutely ridiculous and makes me want to never play the game.

Yeah, that definitely sounds like you are dropping packets somewhere. Our MP game institutes a fairly aggressive "anti-cheat" tech to prevent some nasty exploitation by those out there who just want to ruin everybody else's fun.

Are you on a hard line or wireless? Might want to check your signal quality if you're wireless, and if on a hard line, run a speed test. Sorry to hear it!

Funny that I always get accused of lagging in Uncharted when I kill someone (never so far on TLOU but lag doesn't seem to be much of an issue) and yet I never froze once in 12 hours of gameplay with a mic and friends messaging me about the game the whole time.

No, you are not the only one. I'm having that problem now. I had to stop playing a few minutes ago. It's impossible to continue. The character just stays there and i can't move. It lasts for over 20 seconds.  Never had a problem like this and i play many MP games.

Fix your connection and you won't have any problems.

Same thing happened to me, so I just went back to SP.

If it has to do w/ internet, good thing I'm upgrading to fibrenet on Monday Smiley Happy

Do you feel me?

This dear god this! It seams to happen to me especially when im in a gun fight and I just sit there and get shot! Its **bleep** near unplayable for me at this point since I just got so frustrated I busted a controller, so needless to say its time to back off.

Actually, i have confirmed, and can assure you that this is not a lag problem.ive been having the problem with my character freeze though i can still move the camera, but i have now seen it happen in story mode.it lasts between 5 and 8 secs then i regain control.also when it happens i can see and am completely aware of all other entities, no laggy behavior it seems more that a game mechanic than something thats an accident

Almost everyone is experiencing this problem which is a big issue, so is getting kick out of games randomly or because of rage-quitting host. These are a big issue which should be dealt with ASAP or else most people might just quit the game before the MP events start to pop up.
