Recently purchased this through uPlay and I'm around 8 hours in and have had the game crash to desktop maybe 50 times. I've tried every suggestion from running as admin, to DDU the Nvidia driver with the most recent, and the November driver, closed MSI, Ubi overlay, reduced graphics settings and nothing makes a difference. I can't believe after all this time this issue hasn't been resolved.
No issues with Origin, Odyssey, Far Cry 5, any steam games or the PC stability in general; just Valhalla.
I'd be open to any other suggestions to try and get more than 10-15 minutes gameplay as I'm sick of playing the same bloody raid over and over and over again because it crashes half way through.
I'd get a refund if I could.
Why does the Submit My Support Case grey out on the Create Support Case when I select Technical Issues/Game Crash? Are you serious? I can't submit a ticket??

It seems as though Game Boost on my MSI Mortar Max Motherboard is the culprit. Support did get back to me quickly with the suggestion to remove all overclocks. Haven't had a crash since disabling it (over 3 hours now). Hope someone else finds this helpful.
This game engine never has liked CPU or GPU overclocks and besides it's not really worth it just to gain 2-3 FPS while sacrificing stability .... That's been true since Unity
Now that game consoles are x86-64 based and use PCIe 4.0 just like PCs the next game engine should port a lot better to PC

On my AMD system, changing the virtual memory from auto to manual does absolutely nothing.
On the other hand, switching UbiConnect offline gets rid of all crashes. It's a radical but not surprising measure, since the game has had numerous problems related to the new launcher and the bug-ridden servers (broken festivals, corrupted cloud saves, non-functioning community screenshots, non-spawning avenge missions, disappearing Reyda quests).
If you keep experiencing crashes/freezes right from the title screen because you click too fast on the Start button, give the offline mode a try.

Some time ago I posted here that I was also having these 'random' crashes to desktop after 5-15 minutes of play.
Last week I updated one of my HDD to a SSD and I moved the game installation to this disk (previously it was in another HDD).
So, since I did this I had zero crashes and actually managed to finish the main story and a lot more. So, I don't know if the crashes are related to this or even if they will come back, but I had zero crashes last week and played quite a bit.
If the crashes come back I will post about it here.
