Same Problem here. But i have this Issue right at the start of the Game! Just before i have to repair the 1st of 3 Javelins, the Game freezes....   Every Time. No matter what Graphic Settings i use...


Drivers are up 2 Date. Windows is up 2 Date.


PC Spec is more then enough 2 handle the Game...


Kind of Sad, because i promoted to Premier to get the Game and play it.. But so far it's only waste of Money Frown(

Freezing is fixed by NOT RE-BINDING KEY BINDINGS from default keybinds!

Especially combining Z with DFG or so seems to cause an instant freeze.

100% guaranteed avoid of the instant freeze frame (where the sound plays in the background) is to just play with the default / only bind mouse buttons.

Having the exact same issue. I can't play for more than 10 minutes. I'm glad the ga,e came free with my graphics card.

I experienced this issue of gameplay freezing only in expeditions after a few minutes. It started about a week ago. I was able to switch tasks and close the program every time. Changing display settings did not affect the crashes or timing of the crash. I verified the installation, reinstalled, and updated video drivers.


I realized that I had my PS4 controller plugged in for charging at my PC and since unplugging it I've been able to play normally without crashing (so far).

@clarinetcandy v1.03 seemed very freezy. Almost like the keybinding issue was back, but with bit less presence than originally.

Haven't had a freeze yet on v1.04 (about 2 hours played).
