ok i went to options and changed window mode to "Full Screen", not sure what flipped it to borderless as i always set this option to "Full Screen" in all games, anyhow, played yesterday and today and went to same places and had same fights, and fully completed Essex, no freezing whatsoever, STILL not sure if its caused by that, i will report back in couple of days to see if this was the cause.
Technically speaking, when THIS game freezes, it is not considered a Crash/Driver crash since music is still playing normally, this means the game loop is still running but the calculations and rendering threads have stopped, usually this technique is used to lower GPU and CPU usage when detecting the game is not on focus/minimized, could it be when set to borderless, something is stealing the focus of the game and the game thinks its minimized and stops the rendering?!

I have had the same freeze whether in borderless window or fullscreen, with and without windows optimizations enabled in game file, ubisoft+ version for me, properties. Borderless window mode at least freezes and doesn't fully crash the PC while fullscreen mode will fully crash the PC requiring a reboot maybe 1/3 of the time.
ok forget what i said, i've just hit a freeze while leaping of faith, so the facts are:
- Random freezes, nothing in common between them, it might happen after few minutes, hours or never during a play session.
- The problem was introduced after patch 1.0.4, before patch none had this problem and we have 50+ hours in game.
Also found reddit threads on this problem, same symptoms and all reporting after patch 1.0.4

The same to me, actually, Valhalla and Odyssey both, but Odyssey hasn't before, I don't know if I replaced the computer or bought a Odyssey new DLC.

this is my error report
I have the same issue. It now freezes during the cutscene entering England for the first time and I can't get past it no matter what I try. I haven't played it in weeks now. The patch actually made it worse. I posted my issue separately but have had no response.

This has been happening to me as well, and the one constant is that in Event Viewer I keep seeing this message: "Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered." I don't know whether the game is causing issues with the Nvidia driver or whether it is the other way round.

If you have an nvidia graphics card, I recommend to do a driver update (457.51). Since I installed these drivers the game is still working as it should, so there is a chance that it helped. My computer: rtx 3070, ryzen 7 3700x and 16gb ram.
The latest nvidia drivers have fixed the issue for me
I take it back, I'm able to play about 10 minutes and then it freezes.

I had the same issue over and over, and I tried several recommendations in this thread.
I then lowered the graphic card settings slightly, from OC (overclock) to a less aggressive silent mode, and have been running the game for several hours now. I cannot guarantee this was it, but I'll keep you posted.

still freezes 12/3/2020 even with new drivers from nvidia 457.51.
Ubisoft could give us an answer on that.

Drivers can't fix [censored]. This is definitely on Ubisoft.
ok installed new drivers although there is nothing about this game, went to NCP, noticed "Image sharpening" option is not set to off and some options are not set properly, so i re-set all settings to what it used to be, have been playing for two days, multiple sessions with long hours, didnt hit any freezes so far, perhaps its just luck, i need to play more and see if the problem is from that, for reference here is my NCP settings if anyone would like to try them:
