Red Dead Redemption 2 crashes during gameplay

Question asked by zerisan on Aug 23, 2020



RDR2 crashes almost instantly after beginning gameplay. I was able to benchmark it without a crash. Crash = screens go black, sound stops, and I'm forced to reboot by holding power button.


Ryzen 7 2700

MSI B450 Gaming Plus

Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4-2400 8GB x2


SanDisk 1TB SSD

800w PSU

Windows 10

Dual Monitor


Updated Windows and drivers before trying RDR2 again. Still crashed. Have uninstalled/reinstalled software 3 times. Same result.


Windows Apps does not show Vulkan runtime libraries, but I play R6 on Vulkan without any issues.


Other games that have crashed the same way: Marvel's Avengers Beta and Deadside (early access I believe).


Most of my other games work fine (Outer Worlds, R6 Siege, Civ 6, Divinity 2, etc.)


Thanks for your help!
