So this has happened in 3 areas so far. Caer Lem, Manacalon Ruin, and Fortress of the Shield. At Caer Lem the goblins in their cave rushed at my party as soon as I entered the area. In the Manacalon Ruin the humans would run towards me right after the cutscene, they could be seen rushing in the cutscene too. At the Fortress of the Shield the Tiger Drakes for some reason circled around behind me when I was approaching where they usually would be. Reloading a previous save seems to make it so the enemies don't rush you.
Enemies rushing me as soon as I enter the map or their area.
