Game Crashes Before Cutscenes

I'm just starting War Eternal. Immediately before the first cutscene in 'Dragonflight', my game crashes (this has happened with other cutscenes too, but maybe 1/20 times it's worked. The music is still there, but the screen freezes and doesn't trigger the cutscene. Once I click, the game becomes 'not responding' and then I have to start again. All graphics drivers updated.

Any help is appreciated because I want to play the living story!

    You can try a VPN that takes a different path to the map's IP.
    You can try continuously moving your character or using a skill.
    You can try minimizing the client at that point.
    You can peruse the 'official' Dev-posted thread for other workarounds.

    Good luck.

  • So I windowed the game and minimised right before the cutscene, and it worked! thank you. Hopefully I can play the story now!
