Freeze and game crash since The Forbidden City

Hello there,

the game worked well until I reached The Forbidden City. Since then, the game freezes and crashes constantly and I have to restart every 30 - 60 secs, which makes it practical unplayable. The game freezes and crashes even when I’m in the character menu. The beta patch didn’t work at all.

My specs:
Intel Core i7 6700 @ 3.40GHz
16 GBytes DDR4 Ram @ 2133 Mhz
ASUS Strix GTX 1070 8 GB OC
GPU Driver Version: (NVIDIA 417.35)
Windows 10 Pro 64 Bit (version 1809, build 17763.253)

Any help is much obliged!


I think I found what caused the issue, the crashes were presumably connected with my overclock settings. Lowering the OC settings solved the problem for now.

However, it is odd, since every other game runs great under these adjustments.
