While some of these errors are server related errors and can only be fixed from the side of the developers, a lot of them are actually related to the performance of your system.

We ran the game on three gaming PCs in total. Two of them were medium-end gaming PCs and one of them was high-end. From what we discovered, it is safe to say that medium or low end systems are facing these errors the most. We faced a Fatal Error only once on our high-end gaming PC that is running a RTX 2070 Super, Intel i7-8700, 32GB DDR4 3200mhz RAM. And that too because our internet disconnected for a short period of time.

How to fix these Fatal Errors

Now people might think that the fix to these errors might be very complex. The funny thing is, it is not. This fix is extremely easy and silly. Here is what you need to do.

Set your windows operating language to English (United states), and then restart your computer. Then you just launch the game and it works. Yes that is it!

But what if your language is already English? Well in that case, just switch it to something else and then log out of Windows. Once you done that then switch your pc and keyboard language back to English and it should work.
