Ghost Of Tsushima Director’s Cut Crash Issues On PC After Global Release

Not Sucker Punch's smoothest of release.


  • Ghost of Tsushima randomly crashes mostly during Cutscenes, or while progressing the main story.
  • Players can turn off resolution scaling, use compatible mode, optimize graphics driver, and disable Framegen.
  • If players with AMD GPU are willing to buy Ghost of Tsushima, best option is to wait till a game update.

After years of waiting, players can finally get Sucker Punch’s Ghost Of Tsushima on PC.

Unfortunatley, it came at a cost for a few PC players from its release date of May 16, 2024, due to constant crashes.

The game suddenly freezes in cutscenes, displays a black screen during the game launch, or even crashes during the gameplay.

Ghost Of Tsushima Crashing On PC

Ghost Of Tsushima Dircector’s Cut runs smoothly for most users and has even a 9/10 rating without many negative reviews.

Yet, the game is crashing for mainly AMD GPU users, probably due to unoptimized hardware configure settings.

Here are a few methods you can use if you are facing a crashing problem in Ghost of Tsushima;

Decrease The Core Ratio And Disable Resolution Scaling

If players can access the settings, they should decrease the Core ratio under BIOS settings. This solution might work if players have 13th or 14th-generation CPUs.

Resolution scaling can render your Graphics Processor, to a different settings than your PC is set.

So, you can manually disable the resolution scaling and AMD’s FidelityFX Super Resolution to avoid multiple crashes on startup.

Update Drivers

The driver’s issue with the AMD GPU is not new, as it has been encountered with multiple games, including Helldivers 2 and Starfield.

Players can try updating the graphics drivers and launch the game; if upgrading doesn’t work, try optimizing or downgrading the driver.

Saving Mode And Windowed Mode

Players can initially run the game in Windowed mode and later convert it to full-screen once it runs perfectly.

Moreover, you can also enable the Power Saving Mode under PC settings to avoid crashing issues.
