1 - BASIC PC TIPS

If you encounter issues when running your game, there are a few things you can check to solve your problem. The following steps usually help fixing most issues players encounter.

1. Does your system meet the specifications required for the game?
Please verify the game's system requirements and compare them to your system's specifications. If your system does not meet the requirements, this will most likely be the cause for any performance issue or crash that you may be experiencing.

2. Try to run the game with administrator rights
-Right click on the game icon on your desktop or dedicated folder
-Select “Run as administrator”

3. Update your video card drivers
Make sure the drivers of your graphics card are up to date. They can be downloaded from the manufacturer's website:

4. Verify your game files from the Epic Games Store
Make sure that your game files have been properly downloaded and installed from the Epic Games Store by following the steps described on the Epic Games Store Support Center.

5. Disable background applications
Before launching the game, make sure no other software is running (web browser, chat software, music player, etc).

5 - MY GAME CRASHES AND I GET AN ERROR MESSAGE

If this error message is displayed, it means that the game has encountered an unexpected error, resulting in a crash. After pressing OK, and having quit the game, you should be able to launch the game again without issues. If it is not the case, please contact us.

6 - MY GAME STARTS LAGGING AT SOME POINT, AND EVENTUALLY ENDS UP CRASHING or MY GAME DISPLAYS THE THREE SAME FRAMES BEFORE ENDING UP CRASHING (Nvidia GPU only)

If the graphics options are higher than what has automatically been set, it can result in a memory overload of the graphics card. Downgrading the graphics options and resolution of the game from the Options menu should prevent this issue from occurring.

/!\ Warning: Graphics cards with less than 3GB of VRAM are more susceptible to having their memory overloaded and are below the minimum specifications.

7 - SOME GRAPHICAL CORRUPTIONS ARE VISIBLE IN THE GAME (Radeon VII / Vega / 5700XT AMD GPU models only):

Issue #1
On specific AMD GPUs (Radeon VII, Vega and 5700XT models), some graphical corruptions (triangle-shaped - illustrated below) can be visible throughout the game. We are currently investigating this issue with AMD, but we currently do not have an ETA for a fix.

Issue #2
On specific AMD GPUs (Radeon VII, Vega and 5700XT models), an exposure issue can occur: some parts can be overexposed or look completely black). It can be visible in the environment (see screenshot below) and/or on characters’ parts. We are currently investigating this issue with AMD, but we currently do not have an ETA for a fix.

8 - I HAVE RECENTLY CHANGED MY AMD GPU AND MY GAME IS UNSTABLE OR SLOW EVER SINCE (AMD GPU ONLY):

If you have recently changed your AMD GPU and your game has become unstable or slow, please delete the VkPipelineCache.bak and VkPipelineCache.bin files located in the “ShaderCache” folder of your game installation folder, then relaunch the game.

9 - I HAVE A VERY POWERFUL CPU (WITH MORE THAN 16 CORES) AND I CANNOT LAUNCH THE GAME:

The game can be unstable on CPUs with more than 16 cores. Please know that we are working on this issue. In the meantime, you can disable additional cores via the System BIOS.
