What to do if you experience a low frequency crash

Report the crash:
If you experience a low frequency crash, the crash reporter should automatically launch. Reporting the crash will provide us with information to help prevent potential future low frequency crashes.

What if the crash reporter didn’t show after a crash?

If you have experienced a hard crash, before relaunching the game:
  • Verify your game files
  • Ensure your graphics drivers are up to date

If you would like to submit a ticket via our support portal[support.sms.playstation.com] for the developers to see, please include the following:
  • PC Specifications including graphics settings
  • Game Version
  • Location of the crash in game
  • After how many hours of playing did the crash occur
