    This has only started happening today. I logged in earlier and noticed the colors and shadows were a bit more crazier than usual. From time to time the screen turns to red. Various other persons in chat are reporting the same happening to them.

    Display options:
    Fullscreen Window
    Remastered Mode
    Every option activated except Reduce Snow Build-up
    NonContrast filter
    Gamma and Contrast at 0.
    Opacity and Combat Focus at 100.
    Without Color Vision Aid.

    Video:

    You can see the red flash towards the end. At the beginning you can see it on the mountains.

    Hey @Whitrix thanks for reporting this.

    1. Does the issue persist when running the game on windowed mode?
    2. Does the issue persist when switching off remastered mode?

    I've replicated the problem in the same channel, EU Valencia 3, at the same hour ingame (9:23 PM onwards).

    Examples:
    Remastered:

    At the 0:45 mark one can see a strong example of the red flash. At the minute 1 mark I stopped so the various flickering effects could be seen for a while. Inside the city of Duvencrune one can see the lighting and shadows vary wildly without any kind of movement of the camera.

    Very High:

    At the 0:37 and 1:03 marks.

    In Medium I haven't seen them.

    That's a good point, I updated my Nvidia driver today as well and this lighting issue only started happening today for me.

    Reported this myself almost two weeks ago and few had reported this during last winter effects during "Strange weather" event, but as usual... nothing was done in order to fix this before the winter season effects started again. This is caused by aurora borealis effect that appears during night, but also same bug is affecting multiple other light sources (check thread link below).

    Thanks for the updates! I've run this by our QA dept. and confirmed that we do have an open investigation going on. I'll update it with the additional information linked in this thread.

    same thing just started happening to me. I thought my gaming 4k monitor was dying and was like NOOOOOOOOOOO$$$$$$ lol. Then I asked on general chat and others said its happened/happening to them and came to forums.

    Yep red flashing is back. Been walking around gathering on mountains and feel a connection with the northern lights in the sky. Will observe again if it happens.

    I too am having this issue, it is very hard to play while this going on. grinding isn't possible either. My guild mate is also having the same issue, as are many people in the server chat. I hope this can be fixed soon!

    Oh wow thank you soooooo much. I thought I was going crazy or my GPU was dying, while unfortunate for all of us I am glad this isn't just a GPU problem for me. I was getting these red flashes today in Taphtar Plain while fighting Centaurs as the sun went down.

    I updated my nVidia drivers to the latest version and haven't seen it repeat (at least in the last 30 mins since I updated).

    I always have it when it's winter, since remastered came out. But it's getting worse.

    this has been happening on-and-off since the pointless fireworks when they did their 10 million event. i'll bet someone forgot to turn off the colour effects when the event ended and we're left with this.

    Switched to normal mode cause the coloreffects are annoying as hell, but even there it is bugged. On normal mode it switches light/dark/light/dark all the time.

    Same thing happening here, will endure it for now as remastered is super pretty but for a sec there I thought my graphics card was sending SOS signals. Glad to see it's not just me!
