This is a Microsoft requirement so that they can assure customers that the game has been tested both internal and externally so that it runs and generally works OK, and wont contain viruses or crash their system. It's a quality assurance method. All console manufacturers do this.

Specifically when I swim around an area, I can see parts of the terrain that don't completely load properly (spiky featureless ground or 'holes' in the terrain) but will finally load when I stop for a second. Also related: sometimes I'll swim into an area where the ground looks normal, but it will be empty of fish, collectibles or doodads - only when I stop for a second will everything 'pop' into existence and run normally then. I recently restarted a new savefile after having to deal with moving lockers and locker contents across bases - so I know it's nothing related to previous file contents. I also did finally upgrade to the newest version of nVidia drivers (385.28 Aug 3 2017) but as per Obraxis' previous post, the drivers shouldn't be the issue as UWE fixed the problem that nVidia caused. On the plus side, the UI wiping and artifact issue of before is no longer present - the game looks as great as always. I'm not sure what could have changed in the last few updates, but I am slightly sad to see that the stellar performance the game had before has vanished. It's absolutely still playable, and I'm not really complaining... but it feels sad that I'm taking a step back in progress from the previous advances in performance boosts we just got. I'm sure UWE will keep hammering out the dents and keep things moving along properly. Performance in Experimental will go up and down as we develop the game. The stable releases are what we need to measure from, as that's the tested baseline. We use experimental at specific times to test new code's effects on the game. Generally it will get better over time.
If you have corruption in your gamer tag, there isnt much we can do. If Subnautica isnt loading at all, you can (in order) 1) Uninstall/Reinstall 2) Delete gamer tag from machine & re-input again 3) Factory Reset the Xbox Highly likely in all cases, you will lose saved games. If the game still isn't loading, contact Microsoft support as it may be an issue with your Xbox.
