One of the simplest yet effective ways to avoid hassles in gaming is to ensure that you install updates.

So, before you load the game again after it crashed, make sure that you check for game and system updates.

Games and apps may sometimes crash, fail to launch, or perform poorly if your PS4’s system cache is corrupted. To ensure that you purge the system cache and force the console to build a new one, follow these steps:
- Turn off the PS4 normally using the Power button or the controller.
- Unplug the power cable from the power source (outlet or power strip).
- Wait for 30 seconds.
- Start the console back up and check for the problem.

For those who may have issues with corrupted game files, there are two things that you can do. One is to delete your game data locally (be sure that you create a back up in the cloud before doing this) and the other is by rebuilding your PS4 database.

You should if the hard drive or SSD is at fault because other games or applications will not work at all, or may run erratically. The console’s overall performance will also suffer, even when not actively running a game and when navigating the home screen only.
If necessary, try using a different HDD or SSD, install the game, and see if that will fix the problem.
