The Anacrusis is the latest in a long line of co-op shooters added to Xbox Game Pass recently. It sets itself apart with a unique retro-future art style, which is a little bit different than your typical 'alien invasion' shooter.
However, it also comes to Xbox as a Game Preview title, and some players have spotted performance issues. Thankfully, the developer is already addressing concerns surrounding Xbox performance.
In The Loadout's review of The Anacrusis, the site noted performance issues on Xbox Series X. They then reached out to developer Stray Bombay, who had this to say:
“We’ve already identified several performance issues, and are addressing as much of the server-side performance issues as we can prior to launch, [...] We’ll continue to address performance problems as players identify them in patches over the next several updates, as well as throughout the entire Early Access period. The first update, which The Anacrusis players should see shortly after launch, will focus on fixes improving Episode 1 and add visual cues to help first time players along.”
It's looking like the team are on top of the performance issues so far, which is good news. While the Series X isn't directly addressed, hopefully the system benefits from the game's first update, due "shortly after launch".

I tried to play it last night, lasted about 3 minutes before i turned it off. The sluggish gameplay mixed with the low fps and the horrible way the camera turned either too quickly to too slowly made it impossible to play. Then of course there were no achievements which made me immediately turn the game off. Not worth playing in my opinion.
Gave it a go last night and it was... not fun. Huge almost empty corridors, horrible choppy frame pacing, boring enemies and weapons with no "feeling". And since it is devoid of any blood or guts it felt like it was made for kids and made the weapon feel even less impactful. And that damn "flashers" is possible the most unfun and annoying enemy type ever. Who thought it would be fun to be blinded by white light for a longer amount of period??!!
Would be surprised if this is not "dead" in some weeks or so.
Early access release seems so double-edged.
@OliverOwen man you hit all the issues right on the head, couldn't agree more
