Game freezes during cutscene after completing the first mission

★★ Novice

Game freezes during cutscene after completing first mission. In the cutscene where the crew is rescuing you my game has frozen 3 times already and since you cant skip cutscenes its been draining the trial play time. 

 

I just recently updated my drives to the latest one and use a GTX970. Its happened multiple times already and obviously slowly draining away my time to play because I can't skip the cutscene.

It appears that setting it to borderless window did solve the problem for now

Is your cpu overclocked ? this might cause it.

Ah two good news!
I managed to fix it by disabling CPU overclocking.
another good news is, it boosted my performance substantially too.

I had a similar problem.  Borderless window and removing the CPU overclock didn't work.  Playing it on my TV instead of my monitor did, however.  It could thus be related to the resolution (1440p on the monitor, 1080p on the TV) or a Gsync issue.  If it's the latter, hopefully this will be fixed with the Nvidia driver update.

I ran into another cutscene freeze for which changing the resolution didn't help (nor did turning off Gsync or fiddling with the refresh rate).  I took inspiration from another post and turned off Origin in-game and ran Origin as administrator, and it worked.

By the way, in that case I was running on fullscreen with CPU overclocking enabled.
