Last Epoch Keeps Crashing [FIXED]

Tired of Last Epoch Crashing? Try updating your drivers, unplugging your controller, verifying the game files and more!

Last Epoch is a pretty good dungeon crawler with decent character customization. I have played it for about a week and have enjoyed myself quite a bit. However, there were times that Last Epoch would keep crashing for no reason at all which was quite annoying. Upon researching, I’ve found out that several players have reported crashing issues in the game.

There is no reason behind these crashes as it is due to the unoptimized nature of the game which also leads to performance issues.

You should try these basic fixes to make sure the isn’t on your end:

Key Takeaways

Following are the fixes you can try to solve the issue:

  1. Delete the graphics.ini file.
  2. Verify the game files.
  3. Whitelist the game in your antivirus.
  4. Close any third-party overlays.

Delete the Graphics.ini file

The very first thing you should try is deleting the graphics.ini file. Deleting this file will restore your game to the default graphics settings and prevent the last epoch crashing issue from occurring.

Restoring the graphics to the default settings will help fix any bugs occurring due to bugged graphics settings, leading to preventing the game from crashing. Following are the steps to delete the graphics.ini file.

  • Windows

C:\Users\[username]\AppData\LocalLow\Eleventh Hour Games\Last Epoch

  • Linux

~/.config/unity3d/Eleventh Hour Games/Last Epoch

  1. Navigate to this directory.
  2. Delete the file.

Verifying the Game Files

Verifying the game files can also help prevent the issue. Corrupted game files can lead to the game crashing for no apparent reason at all at random points during gameplay when that particular file gets used. 

Game files are essential for a game to run which is why their getting corrupted will lead to the game crashing. That is why I suggest verifying the game files to prevent the game from crashing as it also helped people online.

Whitelist the Game in your Antivirus 

Sometimes your antivirus can flag game files as viruses and trojans. This is mostly a false detection on the end of the antivirus itself and is not related to the game in any way.

If a file gets detected and quarantined mid-gameplay then the game will certainly crash and you will be very confused regarding why it occurred. That is why it is essential for you to whitelist the game on your antivirus to prevent the game from crashing for any reason.

Close any Third-Party Overlays

The last thing I suggest you try to prevent the game from crashing is to close any third-party overlays. These overlays include MSI Afterburner and RivaTuner. The problem is that they can sometimes conflict with the game and cause instability issues leading to the game crashing. 

That is why I recommend you turn off these overlays to reduce the chances of the game crashing because of them.

Final Words On Last Epoch Crashing

When it comes down to it Last Epoch is a pretty decent game with some minor gameplay problems. However, they don’t really take away from the enjoyment of the game too much unlike when the game keeps crashing. The crashes can be pretty hard to fix since it is hard to decide what is causing the crash.

People on different communities like Reddit, Steam, and the Last Epoch forums have been complaining about the crashing problems. Twitter has also been in a similar situation:

The developers have yet to explicitly address the crashing issue but they have put out a lot of bug fixes and performance-boosting updates in their patch notes.
