Here are a few suggestions that can fix the Rumbleverse crash at launch issue.
Fixing the Rumbleverse Crash at launch issue
Some users have reported that they can’t seem to get into the game as it crashes when you launch it. It’s either immediately, or after the initial screen shows up. In most cases, when a game is crashing like this, it’s something on the user’s end that’s missing or corrupted. Try the following methods to fix that, and get into the game.
Verify Game Files
The first thing you want to do is verify your Rumbleverse game files. At times, during the download or installation process, game files can get corrupted. These files can easily be scanned and verified through the Epic Games Launcher, and we’ll explain how.
- Open your Library in the launcher
- Now, click on the three dots next to your game
- Here, select Manage
- Click on the Verify button next to Verify Files
This will initiate a scan and will take a bit. The progress will be shown below the game. After it’s done, the client will download
Run the Epic Games Launcher as an Administrator
