Godfall – Game is Crashing How to Fix

There could be a lot of factors that could lead to a crash. The hard part is to know which one is the main cause. So, in other words, we need to eliminate all possible causes of a crash. Let’s start with the basics.

Is Your PC Good Enough for Godfall?

Trying to force a game on a system that is not strong enough to run that game would eventually cause performance issues and random crashes. Lets check the system requirements for Godfall :

Minimum Requirements

  • OS: Win 10 (64-bit)
  • Processor: Intel Core i5-6600 3.3GHz / AMD Ryzen R5 1600
  • Graphics: AMD Radeon RX 580 8GB or NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060
  • System Memory: 12 GB RAM
  • Storage: 50 GB Hard drive space

Recommended Requirements

  • OS: Win 10 (64-bit)
  • Processor: Intel Core i7-8700 6-Core 3.2GHz / AMD Ryzen 5 3600 6-Core 3.6GHz
  • Graphics: AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB or NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti
  • System Memory: 16 GB RAM
  • Storage: 50 GB Hard drive space

Anything lower than the minimum requirements would not run the game properly. There would be random crashes and performance issues. In that case, you need to get a hardware upgrade done as soon as possible if you want to enjoy the game. We recommend anything between the minimum and the recommended setup. The higher the better.

Do you still have the Nvidia Geforce Experience Overlay On? (Nvidia users) :

The GeForce Experience is a very useful application. You can take screenshots, record replays, and videos, and much more using the app. What we tend to ignore is that the app runs with a lot of NVIDIA processes which cranks up the CPU usage leading to poor performance and random crashes. Please have it off for better gameplay.

  • Start Nvidia Geforce Experience
  • Click on the Settings icon on the top right
  • Select the General Tab
  • Turn Off In-Game Overlay
  • Restart your PC

Did you try Repairing the Game? (Epic Games)

At times, corrupted files could be the reason for poor performance and crashes. It’s very likely that while installing a file might have gone missing or maybe the file got corrupted for some reason. Epic Games allow you to repair the files of a particular game. This is all that you need to do:

  • Launch Epic Games Launcher
  • Click on Library
  • Select Godfall from the list and click on the Three Dots ( … ).
  • Click on Verify. 

Have you Updated your Video Drivers?

Updated drivers are a must when it comes to performance and crashes. If your video drivers are still not updated, probably that could be the reason for the crash. Get it updated as soon as possible. Check below for the link :

Did you Update Windows?

What we often tend to ignore, are the windows updates. Windows updates are essential and equally important as your video drivers. Therefore make sure you have windows updated to the latest build. This is how it is done :

  • Go to Update & Security
  • Click on Check for updates
  • Wait for the updates to get installed
  • Restart your PC

Have you Tried Re-Installing the Game? :

Probably the last option that you have. Random crashes are very annoying. If the issue persists after following all the above-mentioned steps. Then try to re-install the game. At times a fresh installation is what we require. It removes any corrupted files which could cause issues with the game and download everything all over again.

  • Open Epic Game Launcher
  • On the left side select Library
  • Select Godfall and click on the Three Dots (…)
  • Click on Uninstall 
  • This takes a while and the game will be removed. You have to re-download it now.
  • To do that just click on the Install button that appears below the game.

Hopefully, these steps will fix the issue, but if in case the game still keeps crashing, you would have to wait for a patch fix as this could be a problem from the developer’s end.
