crashes, MSVCP140.dll, low FPS and more

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is now officially available on personal computers and consoles, and has already managed to become one of the most watched games on Twitch. The new part of the “credo” turned out to be extremely unique, even in comparison with the last few games in the series, nevertheless, we still have a Ubisoft game in front of us: lags, bugs and other technical problems are necessarily attached to it.

Take a good look at the above system requirements. Make sure your computer meets at least the minimum system requirements (the very first on the list).

Brakes, low FPS in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

As we said just above, make sure your PC meets the system requirements. Ubisoft’s games have always been overly voracious and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is no exception. If your hardware is in perfect order, then you need to install the latest drivers for your video card. To do this, use the following links:

Are the drivers up to date? Then we recommend simply lowering the graphics settings from maximum or very high to high or medium. Yes, I don’t want to, especially if you have a rather powerful computer, but do not forget that this is a Ubisoft game. Try making the graphics worse and see if the performance improves.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla crashes on launch

First, try adding Assassin’s Creed Valhalla to your antivirus and firewall exceptions. It is also worth trying to run the game as administrator (right-click on the executable file of the game and select the appropriate item). Do not forget that for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla to work correctly, you need to get up-to-date video drivers – use the links above. It is also worth installing all pending updates for your Windows 10 operating system.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Crashes During Game

We do everything that is indicated in the paragraph above. If all else fails, install all the Visual C ++ Redistributable Packages for Visual Studio of various years (the current installers can be found on the official Microsoft website). Among other things, you can try deactivating the full screen optimization feature in the compatibility settings of the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla executable. Once everything is installed and disabled, launch the game again and check if it works as expected.

MSVCP140.dll error in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

The MSVCP140.dll error is a frequent guest on the computers of many video game lovers. Fortunately, it is solved in the most elementary way. Go to the following link:

Download the installer, run the installation and follow the instructions on the screen. Once the installation of all the required libraries is complete, restart your computer and restart Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. This time, no MSVCP140.dll error should alarm you.

Vcruntime140_1.dll error in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

Vcruntime140_1.dll is exactly the same error as above. Go to the following link and install the required set of libraries:

DX12 is not supported in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

Does your computer not support DirectX 12? We have bad news: Assassin’s Creed Valhalla runs exclusively on the DirectX 12 API. Simply put, if your video card supports no higher than DirectX 11, then either pass by or buy a new video card. Unfortunately, these are the only solutions in this case. You can see if your graphics card supports DX12 in the DirectX Diagnostic Tool (Win + R → dxdiag.exe → Display tab).

No sound in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

Currently, many players have no audio in Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. And often a similar problem is caused by a bug in the game launcher. Surprisingly, players have found a potential solution to this issue. Open Uplay, go to its settings and change the launcher language to English. Then open Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and set the language you need in it. Then close the game and restart your computer – the sound will appear, if you believe the messages on the network.

If that doesn’t work, try running Assassin’s Creed Valhalla as administrator.

Black of black screen in the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

Black screens in games can occur due to outdated graphics drivers. Use the links above to update your video drivers. Also, make sure Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is on the exclusion lists of your antivirus and firewall software. You can also try pressing Alt + Enter to switch to windowed mode. The problem may be caused by an incorrectly set resolution.
