Stuck at character selection, instant crash on login

I have 170~ hours into NW, I never had such issue before and nothing changed on my PC since then.
Earlier today, I was disconnected from game, when I tried to log back in, it was not possible…

It’s stuck on this screen for a veeeery long time, like 15 minutes+ then I can see my character, I log in and in 10 seconds game crashes.

Things I tried so far:

  • I verified integrity of game files
  • I tried restarting router
  • I tested other applications for possible connection issues
  • I tried flushing and restoring DNS and IP
  • I confirmed that IPv6 is off
  • I tried restarting computer
  • I confirmed that my drivers are up to date
  • I tried repairing EAC
  • I tried restarting Steam as administrator

My System:

  • OS : Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
  • Processor : AMD Ryzen 9 3900X 12-Core Processor
  • Memory : 16 GB RAM
  • Graphics : NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER
  • DirectX : Version 12
  • Network : 50Mbps download / 8Mbps upload speed
  • Storage : 80 GB+ Storage space available (SSD)

yes me either

Have fully reinstalled the game

same for steam so at a loss.

Still cannot play for more than a few minutes

We cant send a personal message to dev

Full log rather than just last crash section of it.



Yes, I had to manually add you to receive your messages, now you can DM if you need anything.
Will make sure to pass this to devs and they will look into this.
Thanks for the info guys.


same here

Also not able to get logged in. Was playing earlier this morning, then starting experiencing severe lag, and logged out and back in, with lag still making the game unplayable. Logged out for a while and now i cannot get logged in, as it is stuck on the play screen. Server is Pleroma. It gives a message after a while saying timed out while waiting for gameplay on the server.

finally got logged in after 3 attempts, but the game is stuck in a lagged state, cannot even loot anything off of the ground, and messages do not show up in chat at all

i format my pc problem solved

i have the same problem ;/
