V Rising crashes on startup or mid-game (How to fix)

Since the release of V Rising with early access, some players have been experiencing annoying game crashes on startup or mid-game. I know how frustrating this is. When it comes to playing a game on PC, the worst problem we've come across is random game crashes.

If you are one of the hundreds of unlucky V Rising players who are experiencing this peculiarity, there are some things you can do to fix V Rising crashing / not launching issues. In this guide, I will share all the methods you can try to fix the crashing problem in V Rising.

V Rising crashes on startup or mid-game

1. Verify the game files

Sometimes missing or corrupted files keep games crashing. The first thing you should do in this case is to verify the game files.

  • Launch Steam and go to the Library page.
  • Right-click on V Rising
  • Select Properties
  • Click the Local Files tab
  • Select Verify integrity of game files

If Steam finds anything wrong with V Rising files, it will re-download them. After the verification/downloading is done, play the game and see if there are any issues. If the problem still exists, try the following methods.

2. Lock the max FPS

Playing V Rising with high fps may cause crashes on some rigs. So it would help if you play V Rising with vertical sync turned on or limiting your FPS.

You can lock the FPS using your NVIDIA/AMD control panel or third-party software. RTSS is a useful software for limiting FPS. If you have no idea about this, check out this guide.

3. Lower your graphics settings

V Rising is an early access game, so you're bound to run into some issues. If V Rising crashes whenever you're in the middle of the game, I recommend using the lowest graphics settings possible. This will make V Rising run smoother and more stable.

4. Play in exclusive fullscreen

If you don't have any problems launching V Rising, but you are facing crashing in the middle of the game, disable fullscreen optimizations and play V Rising in exclusive fullscreen mode. This might work. Just follow these steps:

  • Go to the Library menu on Steam.
  • Right-click on V Rising and select Manage > Browse local files
  • Right-click on VRising.exe and click Properties.
  • Go to the Compatibility tab and check "Disable fullscreen optimizations"
Disable fullscreen optimizations
  • Then click OK
  • After that, launch the game and go to OPTIONS > GRAPHICS
  • Set "Windows Mode" to "Exclusive Fullscreen"
  • Now you can test the game.

5. Check the disk usage

Some PCs may have 100% disk usage while playing V Rising, which may cause the game to crash. It is normal to have this problem with HDDs. I don't think SSD users have this issue.

To check disk usage, open the task manager (Ctrl+Alt+Delete), click "More details", click the Performance tab, and check your disk usage.


Note: If your PC shuts down completely when creating or joining a server in V Rising, the above methods are unlikely to work. This is a known issue, and developers are working on fixing it.
