Game freezing at the beach regardless of server

System specs:
CPU - AMD Ryzen 5 3600
GPU - MSI GeForce RTX 2060
Win 10 home: Version 21H1

I load up the game fine, but when my character starts up on the beach and I begin doing the tutorial, the game will freeze from anywhere from when my character is crawling to stand up on the beach to where I am dodging the zombie’s attack. The game freezes but I can still hear the sound of the game in the background. I have to kill the game with Task Manager.

I have paid attention to temperatures, and there is nothing shutting it down that way, the game just stops.

This is the last several lines of the log file:

So after updating everything and changed video settings (like turning off Vsync and Gsync on my monitor), I was able to progress past the beach but it would still freeze at the cutscene once I reached the overlook and the splash screen appeared with the New World logo. It would freeze here every time.
I was able to get on an older machine and was able to play past this spot without any problem. Same video driver. Older machine has n Intel i7 3770, 24GB RAM and Nvidia Gefore 1660 GPU.


Exactly the same problem. With the same logs. Whatever I do, nothing helps…
It is worth clarifying that at the last CBT and OBT, I did not have any problems with the game client.
