Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus Errors, Crashes, and Fixes

In this Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus Guide, we have detailed some of the most commonly occurring errors, crashes, and other issues along with their fixes.

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus Errors

#1 – Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus Black Screen Issue
There are a few things you can try to resolve this issue. First, make sure that Steam Overlay is disabled as there are reports that the game does not support it.

If that doesn’t fix the issue and you have the latest GPU drivers installed (AMD or Nvidia), try rolling back your drivers to an older version. This shouldn’t happen; however, this seems to have fixed the issue for some.

#2 – Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus Full Screen Issue Fix
If your full screen gets messed up, you need to go to settings and disable Async Compute option. This should fix the full screen weird issue.

#3 – Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus Freezing Fix
If you are meeting the required specs to run the game and still getting the freezing issue, you should try the workaround mentioned in #2. You may have to restart the game to make it work.

#4 – Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus The Game Doesn’t Launch
It’s another issue related to GPU drivers. You need to make sure that your drivers are up to date. Some users have reported that they fixed the issue by doing a clean install of the latest version of GPU drivers.

On the other hand, if the latest drivers are not working for you, try rolling back to an older version. Ironic, right? For the time being, that’s how things and we are hoping that everything will be fixed with future updates.

#5 – Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus PC Crashes After Changing the Resolution
To resolve this issue, you should install Nvidia drivers version 388.00 or 388.10. There have been multiple reports about this issue and some users have also mentioned that installing the specific drivers version has solved the problem for them.

#6 – Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus Crash Dump Issue, Can’t Start the game
The users who are facing this issue seem to have downloaded corrupted files from some servers and are unable to get into the game. Unfortunately, if verifying the game files doesn’t work, you will have to wait for a patch to fix this issue.

Also if you are using a laptop with multiple GPUs, you should disable the integrated one (The intel GPU). This seems to have fixed the crash dump issue for some.

#7 – Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus Message Type Not Supported and Blank Menu Screen
There is a workaround to fix this issue. You need to delete save files from the save file directory (Administrator/Savegames/MachineGames/Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus) of the game. Once you have deleted them, disable cloud save on Steam and re-enable it. Restart Steam once more and this should resolve the issue.

#8 – Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus Poor Performance/Low FPS Fix
If you are getting poor performance on you perfectly capable Rig, you should make sure that the following things are checked:

  • Your GPU drivers are up to date.
  • You system is not running in the power saving mode.
  • If you are on a laptop, the game is being run by using dedicated GPU and not the integrated one.

#9 – Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus Orleans District Mission Quest Bug
If the objectives have disappeared from the journal, you should join this mission and leave it once to make them reappear in your Journal. This is a known bug and might be fixed with future updates.

#10 – Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus Non-interlaced Refresh Rates for AMD GPUs
The game does not support this feature for the time being so if you want to run it properly, it’s advised that you disable the interlacing feature on your AMD GPU.
