Searching for game Crash

Issue Description:
After launching the game, selecting a character, loading into the hub, and selecting a mission to play, my entire computer will freeze and require a restart.
Steps to Reproduce:

In order to trouble shoot this issue, I first verified integrity of game files. I still had the crash occur. I tried reinstalling the game, and still had the crash. I checked the Fatshark forums and reinstalled the Visual C++ 2019 Redistributables and the GPU drivers. I still have the fail. Concerned that it might be a Win10 software issue, I used the System File Checker to repair Windows, and still had the failure. I factory reset my PC, and the issue persists.

To recreate this error, I am doing only the following.

  1. Loading into the mission hub
  2. Walking around to vendors to ensure crash is not random (it was not).
  3. Going up to the mission select screen.
  4. Choosing a mission

After that, the game and my entire PC will crash. This has only happened since the update today. I played yesterday without issue, and throughout the entire beta with no crashes.

Sadly, I cannot get photos or videos of the event on my computer, and I get no error codes.

I had the same problem which turned out to be caused by an additional Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 5/Rx sound card after removing the card and switching to the built-in motherboard, the freezes and crashes disappeared completely but the sound quality is crap, so it would be good if the developers did something with this problem

We’ll check it out. Thank you.
