How To Fix Total War Rome Remastered Crashing On Steam | 2021

Total War Rome Remastered has finally arrived and as expected, many players are having the same share of issues such as crashing, game becoming unresponsive, and the annoying black screen problem. In this troubleshooting guide, we’ll help you deal with game crashes and its related issues. 

Reasons why Total War Rome Remastered game crashes

If Total War Rome Remastered crashes, won’t launch, black screen, or becomes unresponsive, it may be caused by one of the reasons below.

Incompatible hardware setup.

Total War Rome Remastered may be based on an old game but right now, it requires a decent machine in order to run properly. You should have at least an Intel i3 series or an equivalent AMD CPU and NVIDIA GTX 600 series or an equivalent AMD GPU to meet some of the minimum system requirements.

If your machine is old and not built for gaming, it may struggle to run the game properly, which may result to crashes and other issues.

Outdated drivers.

A driver is an important software component needed by your hardware so it can communicate with Windows OS. When it comes to gaming, keeping your GPU driver updated is as important as updating the operating system or games. If your video card runs on an outdated driver, you may encounter all sorts of issues, one among them is crashing. 

Random game bugs.

New games, even remastered ones, may be released with more bugs than anticipated. Although Total War Rome Remastered seems to be stable and there’s no major game breaking bugs that’s been reported about it so far, some people may still experience game crash or other problems because of other factors. 

Damaged game files.

PC games may sometimes crash not because of coding errors or minor bugs but due to corrupted game data. This can happen if the game is closed or interrupted while trying to save the game progress, or when you turn off your PC during a game update or installation.

Conflicts from other apps.

The least known reason for some cases of game crash problem is due to other apps. Some players report that certain applications, especially those that use an overlay function like the MSI Afterburner causes some games to crash unexpectedly.

Fix #4: Repair game files.
