Many players have reported that Assassin’s Creed Origins crashes on their computer without giving a hint. If that’s your case, don’t worry, We’ll help you fix Assassin’s Creed Origins crashing issue and run the game up again.

Try these fixes

Here are some solutions that have helped people resolve the crashing issue. You don’t have to try them all; just work your way down the list until everything’s working again.

  1. Install the latest patch
  2. Switch to the windowed mode
  3. Roll back your graphics card driver
  4. Update your graphics card driver to the latest version

Note: Some Ubisoft games feature Denuvo DRM (digital rights management) which an anti-tamper technology. In this case, it requires some kind of CPU feature to run the game. If your game doesn’t have DRM removed, you may not be able to launch the game. And you should head to Ubisoft for suggestions.

Fix 1: Install the latest patch

Since many technical problems can be resolved by restarting, it never hurts to restart your computer and your game. Often this will be enough to fix the error.

Game developers always keep releasing patches to improve their games and fix any issues, so you should manually check for updates of your game. Then install the latest patch to keep it up to date. This can fix some issues like Assassin’s Creed Origins crashing.

Fix 2: Switch to the windowed mode

Many people fix the Assassin’s Creed Origins crashing issues on their computer by switching the game to the windowed mode. So if you run your game in the fullscreen mode, you can try the windowed mode.

You can press the Alt key and the Enter key at the same time while launching the game to turn on the windowed mode. If this method doesn’t work for you, don’t worry. You can change the display mode in your game file:

  1. Go to your Assassin’s Creed .ini file in your computer.
    Usually the path could be: C:>Users>Username>AppData>Roaming>Ubisoft>Assassin’s Creed>AOC.ini.
    Or This PC > Documents > Assassin’s Creed Origins > ACO.ini.

  2. Open the .ini file with notepad, and change the following settings to:

    Fullscreen=0 (or WindowMaximised=0)

  3. Save the file and restart your computer.

Launch Assassin’s Creed Origins and see if it stops crashing.

Fix 3: Roll back your graphics card driver

If you’re using a NVIDIA graphics card, you can roll back your graphics card driver to v388.71, which works like a trick for many people whose Assassin’s Creed Origins crashes.

To do so:

  1. On your keyboard, press the Windows logo key and R at the same time to invoke the Run box.
  2. Type devmgmt.msc and click OK.
  3. Double click Display adapters and double click on your NVIDIA graphics card.

  4. Click the Driver tab, and click Roll Back Driver.

  5. Then follow the on-screen instructions to restore your graphics card driver to version 388.71.
  6. Open Assassin’s Creed Origins and see if it works.

If you’re not using the NVIDIA graphics card, or if this method doesn’t work for you, don’t worry. Try Fix 4.
