dude, it’s the holidays. they’ll be back in a few days
TLDR: First go into your game folder and delete the folder that has the intro movies in it. Then if you can get into the game but still constantly crash go to the resolution scale option under setting and drop it to 50%. See if that fixes it. If so then keep bumping it up once tick at a time until you get it to crash then restart and drop it to the last stable tick.
I’ve tried 5 different sets of NVidia drivers, 4 different stable over clocks on my cpu and ram and dropped refresh rate from 120 to 60 hz and it still crashes. Also changing preset graphic options did little to help either.
I’m beginning to think its something to do with the resolution scaling as I can reliably get it to crash now on 3 different resolutions if the resolution scaling is turned all the way up. With it at 40-60% I haven’t had the issue but the game looks fuzzy that way. So if you can get it to run after deleting the intro videos but it still crashes try dropping your resolution scaling down some. Hope that helps.
I have merged again all threads reporting crashing issues on PC.
Since most of the developers are enjoying a well-deserved rest during these vacations, you can try the workaround suggested by @Fitzcrank:
Thank you all for your feedback!
Try to disable the fullscreen optimization for the game’s exe in windows. Helped me.
Just bought this game and cant even start it up. No reply to this critical issue since before the holidays. Can we see some traction on this now that the holidays are over?
And a work around removing part of the game esp for first time players that want the story is a bit absurd.
