There are some recommendations from the developers that may be of help. The hotfix is to play the game on DirectX 11 rather than Vulkan. You can achieve this by clicking on the icon next to ‘play game’ on the launcher and choosing DX11 mode. Here are some other recommendations,
“Leaving the tutorial level by activating the transponder at the helm while the player character is downed in combat will crash the game.
In multiplayer, avoid saving the game during cinematics for the time being. Also, in multiplayer avoid listening in to a conversation in COOP that has ended.
If the host saves directly after combat in multiplayer, the game may crash. Save with caution in multiplayer.”
