(ps4) Conan Freezing and Crashing

Game mode: Online PvE-c
Problem: Crash
Region: EU OFFICIAL
Map: #3041


There is a huge problem with the game crashing out when you run past huge builds, it’s happening now all the time on official and getting to the point were I’m starting to think about ditching the game.

Which is sad news as i thought this game had huge potential. Surely this kind of stuff should be more important on the fix chart rather than New content.

For me its 12 to 1230am UK time, every day as I’m running past huge builds, because the map is full of them, maybe have a BUILD limit or something, even if it’s just for now until you fix it.


Steps on how to reproduce issue:

  1. Be online
  2. Run past loads of huge builds,
  3. Crash
  4. Restart if the server is even in the list and not disappeared.

Please fix or at the least let us know what’s happening.

Edited note:
constantly FREEZING or crashing, and when it does, for me sometimes I’ve crashed and I can watch my character just keep running or swimming with no control until it crashes out completely. Then when I finally get back on the server, that’s if it’s in the list, I find my character has gone a long way by it’s self and I can find myself anywhere, unless I’ve lucked out and hit a wall that has stopped me.

Hello @RogueBudda, thank you for reaching out!

Our team is aware of the performance issues on console and is looking into it, apologies for the inconvenience. Please don’t hesitate to forward the crash reports to provide our team with additional data.

Are you also experiencing this in other servers, both official and private?

Is your console connected to the internet through wired or wireless connection?

I have had this issue since Update 1.40 (I believe that’s the one). May 2019. Tried working with someone but gave up. I’ve pretty much gave up on the game too. Logged in to see if anything has changed and 5 minutes in, game froze up. Last thing I was told to do was remove every light source in my camp. I’ll check back again in a couple months.

Only official, but I don’t know about private, as I don’t play on them, I report crash on ps4 everytime, sometimes it don’t give me the option but when it does I do.

It’s happening more and more now, sometimes 2,3 times in one sitting but most days

With me it’s mostly when passing others bases but can happen anywhere, it’s really annoying when all you want to do is enjoy a game that has so much potential but it lacks a lot of smooth running, I see animals just rising of the ground and my thrall stand in the ground not on it lol, so frustrating. And don’t get me started on the animal armour, the fact you can’t take the armour on and off, crazy. But hey, that’s the last of the problems, we need to start with problem 1 2 and 3, Game running smooth , bugs disappearing, not adding and bans on players that dupe and undermesh.

It’s were I’d start

try a nice player owned server with the settings rigged. ive adapted the attitude thats its better to get real far, real fast, then haveto start over when the server disappears. because yea, the officials gets full of doofuses lol

Lol, I get you, but then I worry about is the private server going to have it’s Bills paid on time or will it be gone at some point, think that would bother me more lol

I crash constantly yesterday loss track of how many times but is was at least 5 times in a 1 hour time period. Happens when I do anything requiring me to go into inventory near or in our base if I try to craft anything, view my thralls inventory or add something to my wheel. I will crash just walking from room to room if my inventory is full. I don’t have crash issues when in dungeons or out in the world. I get that it maybe the size of our base but I belong to a ten man tribe on an Official PvP server. So we have thralls and pets inside & out and we are built inside a temple. We have to defend ourselves so reducing the base size is not an option.
I play on a standard PS4, wireless and I have already cleaned out dust. My sister plays with me and she has a pro and does not have this issue. She might crash once in a evening of playing but I a crashing every five to ten minutes. I have been playing since launch and I have built base way bigger than the one we are in now I would see an occasional blue screen crash but rarely. Now I blue screen and screen freeze making the game completely unplayable.

Hello @Khauncubine, we’re actively working on improving performance on the consoles so all feedback is helpful.

Having a PS4 Pro model, a wired connection and an SSD helps with the performance issues when playing in areas with a heavy load of building pieces, light sources and npcs, and since we don’t impose a limit as to not restrict players’ creativity, we suggest that you tailor your base to have a reasonable amount of the aforementioned placeables. Some players resort to having a few average sized bases in different spots rather than a huge one in one spot, which successfully mitigates this issue.

Well buying a ps4 pro just for this game is out of the question, all other games I play run smooth.

I crashed 3 times last night and I do have a 2tb ssd, makes very little difference.

Plus having many medium sized bases all over the place spoils it for others, even more so on pve-c and pve, pve-c only having 6 official servers and pve always full to the brim of ppl, giving nobody else a decent place to build because everyone wants the map to themselves.

And we never see any map resets to fresh it up so ppl are stuck under 10man clans and stupid farm building claiming the land everywhere.

Would love to know your take on this??

@RogueBudda I don’t know what is happening with your server but I don’t experience these issues we build some big stuff could it be your whole server is overwhelmed. Maybe find a private server with official settings. Good luck.

And we are using 1tb units my wife and I for last 15 plus hours 2 servers only she blue screened when loading and once in game.

Seems like everybody needs a truck load of builds all over the place, that and jam packed official servers, seems to be always full. Private servers worry me, due to are the bills always going to be paid, struggling to find a happy place with this game, it’s a love hate kind of thing, and the love is going. Such potential is this game

Yeah I do crash 5 times every 1hr every time I play. Very frustrating, hopefully they are able to improve performance for ps4

Yeah, many people are having this issue.
Yet they do nothing about it.

They’d rather stand around and ban people for complaining about it, than fix the issue.

I wiped it off my PS4, reinstalled it, only to have it start doing it yet again.
The company doesn’t care. It’s another pump and dump scheme just like Secret World.

This issue has been happening for almost three months now. And it hasn’t been taken even remotely serious. We’re told to buy new hardware to fix something that effects no other games played.

Yeah…not a scheme at all…
