Company of Heroes 2 Errors, Crashes, SLI/Crossfire, Screen, Sound and Launch Fixes

THQ might be a history now, but Company of Heroes isn’t as SEGA secured all the rights in January and promised fans to deliver the sequel we all have been waiting for.

I am talking about Company of Heroes 2 and after its prolonged beta phase, the full game has finally been released. If you have played the original Company of Heroes, I don’t think that you would want to miss its second iteration.

Although, Relic Entertainment has been hard at work to bring a stable experience to the community at launch but big games tend to be affected by minor issues due to hardware and software diversity in the modern age.

If you are experiencing any issues like bugs, errors or crashes and looking for a solution, you have landed on the right place. You can browse through the following listing and search for the concerned possible solution.

#1 Company of Heroes 2 SLI/Crossfire Issues
The games seems to be optimized for single GPU working. So, if you are using a SLI/Crossfire, you should try disabling it and run the game using single GPU. This should fix the frame rate issues for you.

Probably, Relic will come up with a fix later on.
