Manor Lords Crashing On Startup On PC And Xbox Series After Global Launch

Definitely had no issues in early access!


  • Steam and Xbox Series X ans S users are facing crashing and black screen issues on Manor Lords.
  • Players can try rebooting the device, update graphics driver or clear save data, or wait for an hotfix.
  • If players face any such issues they can also fill feedback form on the official site.

Manor Lords is facing several issues since its launch on April 26, 2024.

Whenever players try to launch the game, a black screen appears mainly on the PC version and even on the Xbox Series X and S.

One of the major reasons behind the crashing could be the overwhelming response of the game, which players waited for three years.

Manor Lords Black Screen Issue And Crashing On Startup

Manor Lords was one of the most awaited games and had over two million wishlists on Steam alone.

Players waited months, even years, to build the village and add the villagers to their settlements to play the early access.

But right after the global release of the medieval building game, the game is crashing/not loading.

Due to the high wishlist, when hundreds of thousands of users try to access the game, it may cause server failure even if it does not support multiplayer.

Otherwise, there could be issues with your graphics drivers or game verifications on your PC.

Whereas for Xbox users unsaved system software or uncleared cache could be some issues.

Close Background Applications And Disable Firewall

Using third-party sites or applications while launching the Manor Lords can sometimes hamper the startup process.

Ensure, you have disabled any unnecessary apps or installed applications to track Manor Lord’s data.

You can also try disabling the Firewall if you have installed one, as the Antivirus sometimes restricts the use of game files.

If none of the measures work on your PC, you can submit a Feedback report on Manor Lord’s official site.
