Entered "Iron Gate Control Unit Area" Area and now i can't enter game due to constant crashing


I entered to Iron Gate Control Unit area as part of “Arkasia”(If i remember the zone name correctly) quest line. And the game instantly crashed.

And now when i try to log into my character again, it keeps trying to load into that area and just keeps crashing. I checked that my drivers are up to date and steam files are fine too. e.e

Thank you @rs.sakuras5 :slight_smile:

I moved your character back to Prideholme :european_castle: also let’s verify the Steam files just to make sure everything is working fine.

Steam Support :: Verify Integrity of Game Files :video_game: :hammer_and_wrench:

Please let me know if now is working!

I ran the integrity check, there was 1 file it aperently needed to fix, launched game and got in fine. Thank you. :slight_smile:

i have a question though: Is it safe to continue that questline that caused a “crash loop” in a first place, or i should forget it for a time being if it has currently some weird problem???

I’m glad to hear that is working now! :slight_smile:

Regarding your question if you already verified the files and now is working let’s give it a try to the questline, if you experience the same issue don’t worry let me know and I can help you again.

Safe travels in Arkesia! :earth_asia:
