How to Fix Code Vein Crashes or Freezes on PC Start up

Code Vein is a game that came out in September 2019 and it has garnered a lot of positive reviews and critical acclaim within a short span of time. However, there are a few issues with the game, with the most prominent one being that the game crashes or freezes on PC start-up. In this guide, you’ll get to know different methods to fix Code Vein Crashes or Freezes on PC start-up issues.

Method 1: Stop running Code Vein in Big Picture Mode

This solution is only for Steam users as Steam has a feature known as Big Picture Mode. This feature is developed for playing games on a TV. However, Windows users can enjoy this feature too. When it is enabled, Steam will display a different full-screen user interface. If you normally play the game in Big Picture Mode, try playing it in normal mode and see if it’s working.

Method 2: Delete pre-loaded games from Steam

Pre-loaded games are the ones that you can download before their official release date. Some affected users have stated that deleting pre-loaded games from Steam has fixed the crashing and freezing issue in Code Vein. If you’ve downloaded any preloaded games on Steam, delete them and check if it brings any changes.
