First; I wanted to thank you for the title update. I had been stuck on Asgard at the first mission previously, unable to return back to Norway or England. Almost everything I did there led to the CE-108255-1 "something went wrong with this game or app" crash. That appears to have been fixed; I installed the update and was able to complete the mission testing it in both Quality and Performance mode, returning to England.
However now there's a new issue. There was one other area I wanted to try, a raid that I knew I could guarantee crash the game if I went anywhere near the area. Only now, the game is sporadically hard crashing not only the console, but it appears to be drawing too much power and triggering my surge protector which shuts off anything plugged into it.
This has happened on both Performance and Quality modes. Did not happen in Asgard but I do not know if I played there long enough, as I rushed to shut that door and get out of that place in case the crash occurred again. This issue is significantly more annoying, and I cannot imagine what is happening except that the game is attempting to draw too much power and triggering a shutdown of the surge protector.
Any ideas? I've let it happen 3 times now and I'm leery of doing lasting damage to the PS5 as it has to "rebuild the database" and warn me against improperly shutting the console off every time.
I'm stuck on this same exact level except my game crashes whenever Thor crashes down on that staircase where you sniped everyone, or on rare occasions I can make it to the door and it crashes there. All my saves are on Asgard and I literally have not been able to progress since the 16th because of it.
Just an update: I've now found a second spot I can routinely crash it at, and this one is much more critical. I ignored the raid stuff and carried on the story. Updated the Seer's hut with my final resources and traveled to Asgard. The first mission requires you to repel an assault by getting to a door across the Bifrost and closing it. Every time, at either the point by the stairs where Thor jumps down and blasts everyone around him or I reach the door, the game crashes.
I can't even ignore this one like I can the raid and play around it - because this appears to be a critical path quest and I can't even get back to England or Norway to play on.
So now I really am well and truly stuck.
Ubisoft - please patch this. The stability is terrible.
To start, apologies: Mods - for some reason I cannot create a post in Bugs so please feel free to move this there if appropriate.
I hope I am not breaking any forum rules, but it's easier just to show. In the linked video, I break down my easily-duplicated PS5 crash. I'm at a point in the story where I need to upgrade my settlement further, however I cannot go on raids to acquire more resources to do that without crashing the game. The crashes are sporadic otherwise, but almost on-demand if I set foot anywhere near a raid location.
Is this a known issue? I'm aware of the PS5 crashing on almost all of it's launch titles, but this seems too focused and specific a place for it to be exclusively a new console problem. I hope that by sharing this, it will reach whatever Developer it needs to, to help resolve and push out a patch.
