[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

Product: Anthem
Please specify your platform model. PC
AMD or Nvidia Model Number NVIDIA GTX 970

Please select your region North America
Were you on an Expedition when the issue occurred? No
Where did this issue occur? Please include menu name or in game location. Game crashes randomly, no error message, just reboots PC
When did this happen? ( hh:mm) 15.02.19 10:00
Summarize your bug game crashes the * out of my pc, cant play
How often does the bug occur? Often (50% - 99%)
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? get to work
What happens when the bug occurs? crashes my pc
What should be happening instead? not crash my pc and get the value out of my origin access premier membership

game crashes the pc randomly, even on lowest settings, since launch. This did not happen during both BETAS (shouldn't be called DEMO, much less "VIP"), this does not happen when playing any other games, like BFV, Destiny, anything on steam library, whatever.


Already went to support and achieved nothing, don't even bother, avoid this game, company, publisher like the plague.

Same issue over here, however it is only while I'm in a mission. it will always crash in the 2nd half of the mission and just kinda close out my game. Quite frustrating since this is my only issue with the game


Im running:

Intel i5-8400

GTX 1060 with all current drivers

16gb DDR4 

and the game is stored on a 750gb SSD

Yes, the patch today fixed it for me.... Made it worse. I was to be able to play for almost a full mission before a crash and log back in to finish before it ended.  Now after the patch I crash every couple minutes and gave up on even trying missions or strongholds. It fixed me good. And if another tech support tells me my system is not adequate ill punch them. 


Windows 10Pro/Linux/Risc

dual 1080Ti 12g (5 screen 3 during gaming non-sli because ha-ha bio-ware doesn't support it with anthem so it crashes more and causes screen distortion and enough flicker to make you epileptic)

i7-7700k 4.2g

128g ram (64 dedicated for gaming only other 64 for system and editing work)

4 m.2 2tb ssd 

2 2tb 860 ssd

2 2tb 960 ssd

and backup nas drives 


If I can build and design games games, computers and operating systems with this rig but not play this game we have a problem with the game.

have you guys tried to uninstall your video drivers and use DDU to clean them out, and reinstall the latest driver with Anthem support from the 22nd?  I saw on another forum that the drivers that came out on the 22nd were giving people problems until they did this.  Guys are Guru3d saying to do this as well not just for this game.
