SnowRunner Crash on Windows

SnowRunner is a vehicle simulation title that allows you to drive around high powered vehicles in harsh terrains. If you’re running into any SnowRunner Crash on Windows, here’s how you can fix them.

It is also available on consoles, including PS4 and Xbox One.

The game is currently available on PC via Epic Games Store. A Steam version for the game has not been announced, and a store page for it doesn’t exist as well. If you’re on PC, the only way to play it is through the Epic Games Store. Focus Home Interactive has yet to comment on a Steam release.

Fix SnowRunner Crash on Windows

Some users have been experiencing crashes both at the start and during the game. To fix these, here are a few things you can try.

1) Turn on Vertical Sync (V-Sync)

If you are experiencing crashes during gameplay, you can try turning on V-sync to mitigate the issue. This crash is because the game becomes a bit unstable due to the high framerate.
