    @ubi-spud I will try it out today, I use HWinfo64 and my CPU does no run hotter than 70 C and my GPU 65 C I am on a full custom loop. I will try monitoring with F1 and report back. Thanks for the quick response!

    @Ubi-Spud I just tested it out with F1 and it did not have my CPU temps but my GPU temps were max 56 C. Again this does not happen in any other game.

    @valantorcid I also downgraded after reading your post and it worked. Have been playing for 5 hours without any crashes. The latest Nvidia driver seems to be the problem.

    Guys, it's not the drivers, it's the patch. Regardless of that, there is an issue with the environment textures that is causing a memory leak. Drop it down to medium or high, I know that sucks...but with them not ever putting achievements into this game i'm not surprised they screwed something else up.

    Temporary solution is to play in borderless mode. Playing in borderless won't outright crash the game but it will freeze it and when it does, tap the Windows key and the game will unfreeze. The game doesn't freeze/crash at all in Windowed mode though.


    Thanks for sharing this information RedIndianRobin
    Hopefully this helps other players as well

    @toadman13 my game randomly freezes and minimizes and only cursor remains on the screen. It doesn't fix without closing the game from the task manager.

    Managed to get started the last couple of days but today it crashes during start up. What's going on? my PC is a dedicated games pc and the last thing I did was to play Valhalla, now it won't start!

    @ubi-ginge It didn't work for me. I've been playing in borderless mode. I do hope it helps some out thought because this is insanely frustrating.

    I am experiencing the same issue. If I play in borderless as was suggested here earlier then the cut scenes dont load for me 50% of the time. So I either crash every 10 mins of game play, or I cant progress in the game. This launch is giving me flashbacks to Unities PC release....

    @andicole0 Many many people have had this issue since day 1, but now that the game has been out for a few days it looks like more people are reporting the issue despite having been able to start the game before. Its really weird and Ubisoft has yet to address the problem.

    That's a sign it's a problem with the drivers and the RTX 3000 series ..... You should put in a ticket with Nvidia so they are aware and can release a patch or fix it in the next regular update .....

    It's quite common for this to happen with a new generation of graphics card and new games but Nvidia is pretty good about fixing these kinds of issues unlike AMD which is why I recently switched back after all the issues I had with a RX 5700 .... Unfortunately that meant a used 2080 Super but it's one of the better ones and it boosts to 1995 Mhz and stay there for hours without an overclock so it performs pretty good .... I'm not having any performance problems and it's as good as I get with Odyssey, for me it's all the other bugs and a completely broken Aim Assist as to why I won't be playing it anymore until it's patched .... I'd rather wait a week or two than have an otherwise good experience ruined by bugs ......

    I started my journey through the England two days ago. The game is literally one of the best AC sequels of all time! 
    Game actually work fine with some minor bugs, but the major problem for me is that when I alt+tab or just set game window to borderless, after around 5 minutes of gameplay game just crashes to desktop without any messages!? I tried multiple solutions, but sadly nothing fixed it. Does anyone else face the same problem, and (or) does anyone have any solution?

    @dust2phoenix I agree. This has been frustrating. I made a ticket the other day and have had minimal response back and forth. I have no issues with any other game I play on my PC except this one. Ive tried everything that has been suggested and still crashes nonstop.
