Try these steps to fix EA games crashing or freezing on your PC, PlayStation 4 or 5, or Xbox One and Series X|S.

PC

If your game keeps crashing or freezing, try these PC maintenance steps first. They’ll save you time if your issue can be fixed with basic troubleshooting.

If you’re still having problems, try these steps:

  1. Perform a clean boot of your PC to disable background tasks that may be interfering with your game.
  2. Reinstall your game and the EA app.
  3. Repair the game files in the EA app. Go to Library and find your game. Click the Manage icon, then click Repair.
  4. If there’s an option available, try capping your frame rate. You can also enable V-Sync, also known as Vertical Sync, to match your frame rate to your display’s refresh rate.
    • You can usually turn on V-Sync in your game’s graphics settings menu.
    • If V-Sync isn’t available as an option in your game, you can find it through your graphic card’s Control Panel. For more info, check your GPU manufacturer’s help documentation.
