Below are the different methods you can try and one of them should hopefully get the game working again on your Windows 10 or Windows 11 PC or laptop. You will need to do each method until one helps.

Fix 3: Update GPU driver

If you have not updated the driver for your graphics card in a while then this can cause issues with MultiVersus keep crashing and freezing, so go to the manufacturer’s website for your GPU and grab the latest driver.

Fix 4: Run as an admin

Running Multiversus as an admin can help resolve issues and is worth giving a try:

  • Find the location of where you installed MultiVersus on your PC
  • Right-click on the .exe or shortcut
  • Go to Properties and then select the Compatibility tab
  • Select the box next to “Run this program as an administrator” > Press Apply and OK
Properties window showing compatibility tab selected with Run this program as an administrator ticked.

Fix 5: Background programs

If you have something running in the background when trying to play Multiversus then the program could be conflicting with the game causing it to crash to your desktop. So close down everything such as web browsers, OBS Studio, Discord, and RGB software as all these could cause issues.

Fix 6: Lower in-game graphics settings

If you are using the maximum graphic settings within Multiversus and your system is not coping with it, then this could cause the game to freeze and crash. So try lowering the settings and then slowly start increasing them until you encounter the issue again.

Fix 7: Power settings

Ensure you are using the high-performance power plan in Windows or if you would prefer, try using the hidden Ultimate power plan in Windows 10 or Windows 11:

  • Right-click the start menu and search and open the Control Panel
  • Click on Power Options
  • Under “Choose or customise a power plan” make sure you have High performance selected

Fix 8: Disable security software

If you are using a third-party security program then it could be blocking Multiversus causing the game to not load and crash. So temporarily disable your security software then launch the game and see if it works.

If it does then you will need to add Multiversus to the allow list. (While your security software is disabled you might not be protected from security threats).

Fix 9: Check game files

Luckily within Steam, we are able to check if a game’s file has become either corrupted or missing and if Steam does detect an issue it will attempt to fix the problem:

  • Open Steam and find MultiVersus in the game Library
  • Right-click on the game and then go to Properties
  • Click on Local Files from the left menu > Then select “Verify integrity of game files…..
Verify integrity of game files in Steam.

Fix 10: Rename saved folder

If one of the game settings is incorrect or has an issue then this will cause problems. So try renaming the Saved folder. You will need to reapply your in-game settings and if this method does not work you can rename the folder back:

  • First open File Explorer and type %localappdata% in the address bar and press Enter
  • Now find the MultiVersus folder and Open it
  • Next, Rename the Saved folder to anything then launch the game again

Fix 11: Reinstall the game

If none of the methods above have helped get the game working on your Windows computer then the next thing to try is reinstalling MultiVersus on your computer. And if possible try installing the game to a different hard drive.

Fix 12: Change graphics preference
