    Yep, getting these crashes now since the latest patch. They were not an issue before - game just hard locks about 30-60 minutes in. Often seems to be after a save so I wonder if that's related.

    I have been trying to complete the last missions of the main story mode, but the game freezes and forces me to manually end it via task manager. This is happening during pretty much any scripted dialogue meaning that i cannot progress any further. This is a big problem and is very frustrating.

    I just did one of those rage inducing Cairns, validated it then took a screenshot and that caused the game to CTD.
    Upon loading the last save the Cairn stones are laying on the ground and I can do it all over again FFS 😠

    Used Harpoon ability on a Zealot and the game hardlocked.

    Also just cleared the entire Thieves Warren camp and upon proceeding the quest the game once again CTD.
    Loaded back in and the entire camp is untouched as the last save is right before the camp.🙄

    At least you get something. Here's all I get on my screen, since nothing loads once I fast travel:

    Hi everyone! I experienced the same problems you described after the 1.04 update with constant freezes after 15-20 minutes into the game. I have my old desktop PC with an i7 2600k and Nvidia 1060 OC, and a gaming laptop with Ryzen 9 4900 and RTX 2060. The solution that worked for my case is the following:

    • Update the drivers of your card.
    • Delete the cache directory in "My Documents>Assassin's Creed Valhallla>cache".
    • Play the game NOT in "Full Screen" but in "Borderless Windowed" mode and Vsync OFF
    • In the "Graphics" options choose a lower setting, in my case "High>Medium".
    • If the game asks for a new save, create a new manual save.

    After these settings, I can play more than 4 hours continuously without any of the aforementioned problems.

    I hope that helps. Stay safe and enjoy an otherwise fantastic game!

    Every 1 hour or so my game crashes after 1.04 update. It just freezes and I need to kill the process through menager.

    Before the patch 1.04 the game had never crashed.

    Any fix?

    Do you still hear sound when the game is frozen?

    Alot of people still have that issue amongst other things.

    There's a big thread on this, have a look when you have the time:

    @wanimar Still freezes on me frequently. Usually, just when I am about to defeat a zealot... This is probably the buggiest, glitchiest, most unstable PC game I've ever seen.

    @ubi-spud since the last update the bug appears more often like when zooming the map in and out and so on

    I've been having random crashes where the game freezes, stays on that image for a few seconds... then crashes out and updates the saves to the cloud on PC (Ubisoft Connect). No option to report the bug or crash. This only started when the last patch hit. This usually happens right after combat starts. I usually have time to kill 1-2 guys in a group of 4 and then FREEZE, crash, desktop... and now I'm hunting for that roving wealth icon on the map again (because they aren't in the same location nor nearby when I load back into the game).

    This isn't an issue of not having enough RAM or Video memory... as those are having moderate use... but never maxing out.

    Same here. Latest patch f'd up everything. Been trying to play consistently since release, had these same issues before. Submitted a ticket and it took several emails back and forth til the game was playable. Now it's back to crashing at the splash screen, frozen video w/ music looping in the background. [censored]?!
    Hey Ubi, I'd have more than 6% progress if I could actually play this game without it freezing up. Putting in another ticket seems like a waste of time.

    I just wish they’d at least acknowledge it. All these posts here and on Reddit, and it’s STILL not on their list of known issues!?

    I tried opening a ticket and using their “support” but it was a joke.

    I unfortunately just started over, deleted all my saves and left myself at the beginning of the game and now I’ll wait until until they can get their crap fixed.

    Same with Cyberpunk 2077. Sheesh.

    Since the patch 1.04, everytime I have played the game, at some point it freezes. It could 30 min or 2-3 hours in, but everytime freezes and stops working. I have updated drivers, check game files... but nothing works. Yesterday, it freezes just looking the map. AC Origins and AC Odyssey had some bugs, but nothing like this game. I hope Ubisoft release a new patch soon, this is NOT the way.

    Hi all

    I just wanted to give my experience of the crashes/freezes that i have logged since the start of playing the game since release date.

    Overall in just under 240hrs of gameplay i've counted 15 crashes/freezes. Not enough that its a constant worry but its still too much to call it "stable"

    All nvidia drivers are up to date. i resisted the temptation to roll back as it wasn't a constant issue that warranted a roll-back.

    I could go days without any issues then all of a sudden one would pop up. I will say that i never had more than 2 on any given day so in that regard i was lucky.

    5 of them were CTD, some of them were CTD's without any error messages and a few actually had me doing the whole sending of error reports to Ubisoft.

    The rest were the freezing with the sound still playing in the background issue (this is the main one that i see popping up regularly in the forums)
    I wanted to focus on this issue as its happened the most and there's no clear indicator what actually triggers it.

    Looking at the event ID's each time the one that popped up the most was D3DDRED2.

    Some of the things that i was doing when the game froze:

    • in combat
    • general exploring
    • in distrust areas (happened in Ledecestre, Cent, Wincestre and smaller area called Wandrie)
    • on horseback
    • leap of faithing

    So in general - anything! I will say the freezes in the distrust area were a bit odd but ill put that down to mere co-incidence.
    Crashes usually happened within the first hour of gameplay but there was the odd occasion when it froze after 4+ hours though.

    This is still a big issue that i see pop up and to my knowledge this isn't even on the "known issues" list
    Looking at the list i'm a little shocked as to what they deem "priority" when there are many people who cant even play 5 minutes.

    I'm probably gonna take a break from the game for a bit. Think the only thing i need to finish is the fishing collection and complete a few mysteries (a few are bugged so don't know when they will get patched)

    Hopefully Ubisoft can actually start tackling the real problem for players and get the mess sorted.

    Thank you
