Fix Scarlet Nexus Crash with UE4 LowLevelFatalError

Scarlet Nexus is the latest game from the Dark Souls developer Bandai Namco. The game does not have many errors, but you may come across Scarlet Nexus Crash with UE4 LowLevelFatalError. UE4 in the error message stand for Unreal Engine 4, the engine that the game is based on. If you have played any of the recent titles, it’s likely you are already familiar with the engine and a similar UE4 error that crashes the game. While the UE4 is a great engine for game development, it does not handle well when the GPU is unstable. Hence, the most likely cause of the error is instability of the GPU. Here are all the solutions you can try to fix the LowLevelFatalError in Scarlet Nexus.

How to Fix Scarlet Nexus Crash with UE4 LowLevelFatalError

When you encounter the error, the first thing you should do is check for the latest GPU driver software. A bugged driver can be instable and cause the error with the game. So, update the graphics card driver first.

The second thing you need to ensure is that you are not running any overclocking software or are overclocking the CPU or GPU in any way, not even the Intel Turbo Boost.

Try to limit the FPS of the game through the NVidia Control panel and check if that stops the game from crashing.

If the above solutions have failed, we suggest that you perform a clean boot and then launch the game. The clean boot will remove all third-party software that may be causing the problem and run the Windows on only the essential programs. Here are the steps for the clean boot.  

  1. Press Windows Key + R and type msconfig, hit Enter
  2. Go to the Services tab
  3. Check Hide all Microsoft services
  4. Now, click Disable all
  5. Go to the Startup tab and click on Open Task Manager
  6. Disable one task at a time and restart the system.

If the error still does not resolve, play the game on a reduced settings and ensure that your system meets the requirements to play the game. On rare occasions, the error can also occur when there is a problem with the game files, so run a File check using the Verify Integrity of game files feature of Steam.

Finally, none of the above solutions have worked, it could be a problem with the DirectX. DirectX 12 is known to be unstable on some system and can lead to the error. The solution here is to launch the game with DirectX 11. You can do this by typing ‘-dx11’ in the Launch Options.
