At this point, you’ll have to select your Operating System name, OS type (32/ 64 bit), device model and other configurations.

Follow the same procedure for each device installed on your computer.

Verify System Requirements

The rationale way to fix a game issue is to first check the system requirements. Major cause of Hellblade Senua’s Sacrifice crashes can be traced back to unsupported system specifications.

  • Operating System: Windows 10/ 8 /7
  • CPU: Intel i5/ AMD FX
  • Video Card: GTX 770/ Radeon R9
  • Video Card Memory: 2 GB
  • Hard Disk Space: 30 GB
  • Software: Microsoft DirectX

Fix Registry Errors

Windows Registry is the most significant area of your system which contains important system settings, user profile settings and other configurations. Use the steps given below to fix TDR-related errors in your Registry.

  1. Press Windows Key + R.
  2. Type RegEdit
  3. Click OK.
  4. Open the following Registry path:
    • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\
  5. Right-click the GraphicsDrivers sub-key, and choose New | DWORD Value. Use 32-bit or 64-bit option depending on your system type.
  6. Specify the following name and value:
    • Name: TdrDelay
    • Value: 10
  7. Repeat the same procedure to create the following DWORDS:
    • TdrLevel, 0
    • TdrDdiDelay, 10
    • TdrLimitCount, 10
    • TdrLimitTime, 180

Fix Aspect Ratio

Aspect Ratio is the ratio of the width to the height of your computer’s screen. An invalid or incorrect aspect ratio may cause random game crashes.

  1. Press Windows Key + R.
  2. Type AppData, and click OK.
  3. Open the following folder:
    • …\Local\HellbladeGame\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor
  4. Right-click Engine.ini, choose Open with | Notepad.
  5. Insert the following command:
    • [/script/engine.localplayer]
    • AspectRatioAxisConstraint=AspectRatio_MaintainYFOV
  6. Click File | Save.

Optimize Game Settings

Another factor to take into consideration is your game settings. If the game is configured for better visual quality, it needs far better quality of hardware to run it. If you have a system with substandard hardware which fails to fulfill requirements for high quality gaming, you might want to change the in-game settings and lower or disable those game features.

  1. Go to the WindowsNoEditor sub-folder. (Refer Steps # 1-3 under Fix Aspect Ratio)
  2. Right-click GameUserSettings.ini, select Open with | Notepad.
  3. Set the following:
    • sg.AntiAliasingQuality=0
  4. Save and close the file.
  5. Open another file scaleability.in from the same directory.
  6. Set the following:
    • r.PostProcessAAQuality=0

Disable Dual Graphics

The dual graphics feature in AMD Radeon can be the culprit. Temporarily disable this feature and re-load the game again.

  1. Open the Catalyst Control Center.
  2. Click the Games tab.
  3. Turn off a feature called AMD Radeon Dual Graphics.
  4. Save your changes.

  2. Search for Microsoft DirectX.
  3. Select the preferred language, and click Download.
