Okay I have found something very interesting. I had made it through 10 minutes of a game, which is very seldom, then my game stuttered, froze and crashed. Weirdly enough, the game then reopened itself some 30 seconds later and continued from exactly where I crashed, except I was outside the circle and downed. I then made it to the end of that game, started a new one and the game crashed on landing, but this time didn't reopen. Anyone else experienced this?
I have managed to fix the game from crashing. I reverted to driver version 18.2.2. I done all the usual stuff such as repairing the game, cleaning the temporary Origin folder from within %appdata% and updating all other computer drivers such as the chipset.
I then launched the game with these launch options:
+fps_max 60 -refresh 60 -dev -console -preload -threads 4 -forcenovsync -fullscreen -high -dxlevel 95
Obviously change these settings as per your requirements. E.G. change - FPS/REFRESH/THREADS
Also it's worth mentioning that I run the game at 1080p in all Low settings except for Anti-Aliasing (x2) and Model Detail (Medium).
Hope this helps someone else too.
Wait, so what card do you have? I have an R9 280x...I can't find 18.2.2 on the AMD site for my card. For my card, rolling back to Win 8.1 gives me the driver: 17.7.1
Do I install that one?
I've tried 18.2.2 driver without any launch options and still have crashes, although I feel like they happen less often.
I'm currently trying to run with launch options and I did not have any crashes so far (in a 2 hour session), I'll update if crash occurs.
UPDATE: Game still randomly crashes.
If for some reason the link from the driver page isn't giving you a specific driver, look for the driver under another card choice. As long as it is a desktop driver not apu they are all the same. You can verify that it supports your card when downloaded by reading the release notes. Only issue you might have is if tried to load a driver that pre-dated your card. If you are having issues with the AMD site, guru3d_com has links to most of the older drivers too on their site.

Been having this issue recently after I bought a Vega 64.
Replaced my GTX 970 with an Asus Strix Vega 64. When I was using the 970, the game only crashed the first week of release. The crash goes back to desktop without any "send error report" thingy appearing like it's a normal thing.
GPU: Asus Strix Vega 64
OS: Windows 10 Pro 1809
Reproduction steps: Game closes/crashes after plane drop, mid game and top 2 situations. Tried undervolting to 1100 and 1150mV, underclocking, adjusting game settings lower than my settings with the GTX 970 even, (pretty weird but) looked up to the sky while dropping to reduce GPU stress if that makes sense.
Video settings: Almost everything on High except for the shadows and in 4GB settings
I have finally (almost completely) fixed my crashes...and here is how...
* I begin by restarting my computer.
* I have all latest drivers installed.
* I installed the game on my OS SSD (only game on there)
* I run the game on ALL low settings (1080)
* I put in the command line launch options: +fps_max 60 -refresh 75 (I have a 60hz monitor)
* I close down all programs in task manager I know I don't need to run (you should know, don't go crazy closing stuff)
* I NEVER tab out of the game (I'm on one monitor)
Doing all this allows me to play relatively crash free. And if I crash, I restart computer, close all programs not needed again, and cross fingers. I typically only get 1 crash an hour now...before it was 1 out of 4 games.

I have this same card. At 100% they throttle like crazy. I use a custom fan curve which helps this a lot and makes my card very stable. Most RX 580 and 480s benefit from maximum power limit too. You should set it to it's maximum of 50 and leave it there. It uses the power dynamically so raising it doesn't mean it's always using it, only that it's available when it needs it. On your card yes 1425 what XFX says it will do OC'd as a guarantee. Mine does even better but as I said throttles badly, so use a custom fan and temp curve, and yes it will make the fan noisier. If you don't have good case ventilation you might consider opening the side of your case too. I am attaching my Wattman settings for reference. I would not overclock anything just set the power limit I have and the fan curve and see it that does not help. I am able to run Apex at 1440p at acceptable frame rates without crashing. Have I had some crashes yes, but it's game related crashes not my GPU. The game is still a bit buggy. I get the same crashes on my 2 nvidia rigs too.
