I purchased the game about a 2 weeks ago and realized that every time I try to leave the first map area, the game will crash to the desktop. I have contacted UBI tech support about this and started a ticket with them, but they have been NO HELP.
So far I have updated my graphics driver, tried playing using DX9 instead of DX11, reduced my graphics settings, and tried exiting the first map area in all directions. I havent tried uninstalling/reinstalling yet since I dont think I should have to. I have also checked the steam files to make sure they're all ok. Im at a loss!

I dont know what to do about this, I pretty much cant play the game past the first map area.

Any help would be really appreciated!!

Thanks in advance!

So you're saying they didnt include the patches in the version I got from Steam?? WTF! No suprise I guess, seems like something Ubi would do.
Thanks for the tip I'll give it a shot!
