Game keeps crashing whenever I try to load into a game

Issue Description:

Darktide keeps crashing whenever I try to enter the Psykanium or connect to a mission. I can run around the Mourningstar without an issue, but after I get put into a lobby and press ready I will get disconnected. If I try to reconnect or leave the session, the game will crash. This happens every time.

Could you try reinstalling your GPU drivers, if you haven’t already?:

I had tried that, but did it again for good measure. Didn’t help. Other than reinstalling drivers I’ve tried;

  • Reinstalling the game
  • Installing the game on a different drive
  • Setting worker threads to 1
  • Clearing the shader cache
  • Running the game on integrated graphics
  • Disabling “portrait rendering” in the options
  • Closing background applications
  • Verifying the integrity of game files
  • Reinstalling Visual C++ 2019 redistributables
  • Running the Windows system file checker

My pc is not overheating and I don’t have any overclocks.
