Assassin's Creed: Valhalla - Crashes, Black Screen, Low FPS & Other Errors


Assassin's Creed: Valhalla is officially available on PC and consoles, already rising to the top of the viewership on Twitch. This game is Ubisoft's new gem, although this one also has its flaws here and there. Are you experiencing crashes or error messages in Assassin's Creed: Valhalla? Here are some fixes you can try as soon as possible.


Low FPS / performance

If you find that Valhalla looks low in resolution or FPS, then this is most likely not due to poor studio design. Chances are, your hardware is struggling to meet the high demands of the game. With that said, the first thing you should try is to check the minimum game requirements. If you are 100% sure you meet these requirements, then we will need to do some investigation.


First, open your GPU driver program and check if you have all the available drivers installed. If not, download them and install. Then try closing all unnecessary programs and browser windows to make sure your CPU and RAM usage is not causing problems.


The last thing you'll want to try is adjust your in-game graphics settings to a lower threshold and see if that solves the problem. You may have to play around with the settings to find the perfect solution for poor performance, but this is your best bet. If the problem persists, reopen the GPU program and, with Assassin's Creed: Valhalla selected, turn off anti-aliasing, Gama correction, triple buffering, and slightly lower texture filtering.


Assassin's Creed: Valhalla crashes on launch

The first thing you can try is the Assassin's Creed: Valhalla whitelist from your firewall and antivirus. After you have done this, check to see if the crashes stop. If not, try running the game in windowed mode. To do this, you can either rename the game target shortcut to -w, press Alt + Enter when loading the game, or edit its .ini file to run in windowed mode. Another thing you'll want to try is launching the game directly from it .exe file.


Startup crashes can also be related to outdated GPU drivers. Check if you have any pending updates. Install them and then try launching the game. If you are still not successful, you should contact Ubisoft Support for more personalized assistance.


Valhalla lags on PC

There are two things you can do if you find Valhalla lagging behind on your computer. The first and most obvious one is to check your GPU program and download any driver updates that might be delayed. If everything is ok then go ahead and check your game files via the Uplay launcher. To do this, go to Properties and then check the game files.


The last thing you might want to consider when experiencing lag is whether your GPU is struggling to keep up with your gaming experience. Go ahead and tweak some graphics settings to see if that makes things easier for you.


Assassin's Creed: Valhalla game crash

The first thing you'll want to do is run the game as administrator. This removes a number of security concerns. You should also whitelist Valhalla on your firewall and antivirus and check if the crashes have stopped. If not, check if you are using the Microsoft VC ++ Redistributables correctly. If not, download the correct ones and install them.


The last thing you can do to stop the game from crashing is to disable full screen optimization. To do this, go to the game files and right click on the executable file. select Properties. In the properties window go to the Compatibility tab and here enable the "Disable full-screen optimization" option. Click OK to apply the settings and try starting the game again.


"MSVCP140.dll not found" error

This is a bug that is common in computer video games and is easily fixable. All you have to do is download the latest Visual C ++ Redistributables (both x64 and x86) and install them. Run the game again and see if the problem goes away. You will most likely be able to run the game perfectly.


Error "Vcruntime140_1.dll not found"

Like the previous bug, this one also needs the latest versions of "Microsoft Visual C ++ Redistributables x86 and x64" to work. Download them from the Microsoft website, install both, and launch the game again.


DX12 Not Supported Error

Unfortunately, medium installations of Assassin's Creed: Valhalla require DirectX 12 to run. The error informs you that your graphics card cannot support DirectX. As a result, the game will not be able to work. For now, the only thing you can do is play Valhalla on a PC with a supported GPU, or it's time for an update!


No sound in Assassin's Creed: Valhalla

No sound in Valhalla is a problem many players are facing right now. Unfortunately, this is mostly a bug. However, one player managed to find a solution to this problem, which appears to be the default launch language. Set the Uplay language to English and then change the game language to your preferred language.


Another issue you may encounter if the fix below doesn't stop the issue is the presence of a sound card that does not support DirectX 12. Check your sound card specifications. If it is not compatible, then you will not be able to have sounds in the game.


If you have sound in general, but it is cut out randomly, then close the game and start it again with administrator rights.


Black in the Assassin's Creed: Valhalla

A common problem that can have several different reasons for this to happen. The first is safety. Make sure you whitelist the game in your antivirus and firewall. If that doesn't work, it may conflict with your default resolution, causing the game to show a black screen. Try running Assassin's Creed: Valhalla in windowed mode and see if the problem is resolved. If so, you can switch back to full screen or set it to borderless for a smoother experience.


That's all we could gather right now regarding bugs, crashes, and poor performance in Assassin's Creed: Valhalla. If you find that you have not found a solution to your problem here, you should visit Ubisoft support and explain your problem in detail, as well as ask the team to help you or write about it in the comments, we will try to help you as much as we can.
