    Bug Description: Game Randomly Crashes


    Detailed steps to reproduce the bug:


    1) Not able to reproduce, sometimes I can play 10 minute that the last time before I submitted this report or go hours without issue. 




    Actual result: Game plays fine for a random about of time and then just locks. It's also doing various things, but normally when I'm traveling around the map or exploring. Locks up and I have to Ctrl+Alt+Del out of App and End Task to close it out. When I launch it back, everything is fine except for the lost of a few seconds of gameplay. 


    Expected result: Play the game without crashing or locking up. I have also tried playing on all the Video settings and still have the same issue, new game or old.

    Also note that that laptop isn't going to do well at 4k. You will want to drop your resolution to 1440p or 1080p. Doesn't matter that it's a 12th-gen with a 3080. You might as well have a desktop 8th gen with a 1070. 


    Your video driver is also from June. Install this one. Don't forget to opt out of the GeForce Experience bloatware, and you should choose Advanced to perform a clean install.


    This is a driver issue. It's not a bug with the client. You're probably just using the crap "Microsoft Certified" driver that Windows installs with major updates. It doesn't include full Direct3D support, and causes this issue.
