I am actually having the exact same issue with shadows flickering. The GPU is RTX 3070 Gigabyte OC. Latest Nvidia drivers, lastest Mobo and GPU BIOS.
Here is some footage:

  1. Same location as posted above:
    2021 10 06 00 28 04 - YouTube
  2. Different location, similar issue, but less frequently
    shadow glitches 2 - YouTube
    Time on the video when the issue is visible:
    0:16, 0:38, 0:46, 1:16

Is anyone else having similar issues? Is it hardware or software related? I do not seem to have issues like that elsewhere but in NWO

I’m having the same problem here

GTX 1650

Everyone has this problem when there’s fog.
