When I launch Vermintide 2 using the ‘official realm’ from the launcher, my PC reboots. No error codes or messages. The reboot typically occurs before any intro cutscenes play, but once in a while I’m able to get in game for about 30 seconds before my PC reboots. If I select the modded realm or benchmark mode, the game loads and plays without any issues or reboots.
I do not have any issues with any other graphics-intensive games causing crashes/reboots on my PC. Only VT2 when using the official realm. It is not a power/heat problem with my PC.
OS: Windows 10 Home
CPU: Ryzen 5 5600x
Motherboard: Asus ROG Strix B550-F Gaming
GPU: Geforce 1080ti
Anti Virus: Only the built in Windows AV. No other AV
Things I’ve tried:
Fully updated OS
Up to date chipset drivers for my motherboard
Latest GPU drivers
Added the VT2 folder to the list of AV exclusions
Repaired Easy Anti Cheat
Uninstalled and reinstalled Easy Anti Cheat
Deleted the certificates directory for Easy Anti Cheat and re-installed Easy Anti Cheat
Verified integrity of game files in Steam
Uninstall & reinstall of VT2
After searching around and finding people with similar issues, I’m almost positive this is being caused by Easy Anti Cheat. I’ve also submitted a support request to Easy Anti Cheat but wanted to post here as well in case I may have missed something.
Thank you in advance for your help
