The game freezes ever so often during play ( more so during combat pausing and un-pausing), but I can still hear the audio and conversation happening in the background. If I alt-tab out of it , it turns into a black screen with the pointer.This has been occurring since launch and has plagued my recent play through of the BOW.


Instances when the crashes occured:

1] 9/10 during combat pausing

2] randomly during a scripted in-game cutscene( eg in the last fight when the auroch smashes the ice)

3] Randomly anytime.

4] Level up screen.




Bugs I have encountered so far :

1] Aloth and eder banter loops on after every rest session always

save game : https://www.dropbox.....savegame?dl=0

2] Retrained Vatnir but unable to finish level up as clicking next doesn't progress the screen, couldn't cancel it either. Same save file as above.

3] Hidden object detected but not highlighted or unclickable in the temple ( beast of winter )

4] Some of the abilities( passives mostly) doesn't show up in the character sheet, especially those added by the deck DLC

5] Certain trap are detected but unable to be interacted with( one in the area with Waidwen)

6] The Eder quest has been completed already but the ship can still be encountered and the quest somehow continues again as if I failed to catch up to it. Save game : https://www.dropbox....e.savegame?dl=0

7] After deciding the fate of Waidwen in BOW, he is still interactable and the choices can be altered.


Well.. thats all I remember.

Thanks and regards,

I've gotten this bug a few times - just got it in the middle of a fight I was winning, so have to redo the fight again - irritating!
