I purchased AC: Valhalla yesterday and installed it to play today. At first I had no issues, I could launch and I got into the first part where you can control the MC. However due to a lot of FPS drop and lag I uninstalled and reinstalled on my SSD to hopefully get better performance.
After going through the menu to better optimize the video and audio I attempted to start a new game. I went through the opening cinematic, and got to the loading screen and still had FPS issues, which wasn't a big deal bc it's just a loading screen, but the game screen went straight to black (no loading icon) and game audio could be heard. I waited for almost 5 min for the screen to change in some way but it failed to do so. The program would not close, even with Task Manager, so I had to force shutdown my rig. Upon attempting to play I met the same issue yet again, four more times before I gave up and came to the forums looking for answers.
I know that my specs are not an Issue as I'm on a brand new MSI gaming laptop, and it isn't a system issue as I can play R6:Siege and TD2 without anything remotely similar occurring.
I have sent in 2 crash reports and scrolled through the forums looking for a fix for roughly ten minutes.
A solution would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
