Call of Duty Black Ops 3 crashes on Windows 10 PC, here’s a temp fix

Just a few days ago, Call of Duty Black Ops 3 was released for gamers on Windows 10 PC, alongside consoles. But, as was evident with the release of Batman Arkham Knight, PC gamers are getting the short end of the stick it seems.

According to a report, players of the Windows PC version have been encountering major issues with the game, citing the inability to play the game and ridiculously low frame rates. The complaints are everywhere — on the game’s official forums and the Steam community forums. For some gamers, the game won’t even load, crashing as soon as the publisher’s logo appears on screen.

Treyarch developed the PC version of the game and is suggesting gamers mess with the INI file until a fix becomes available. Treyarch is aware of “very low frame rates” on “certain Intel Core i5 CPUs” and suggests eiding the INI file to resolve some of the issues immediately. In the config.ini file, you can try changing WorkerThreads = 4 to WorkerThreads = 2. This file is located in the players folder of your game installation directory.

An update to the game for Windows was released earlier today and is expected to fix these issues, but it’s too early to tell if all the problems faced with the game were resolved. If the game is still unplayable on your Windows PC, try the above config.ini edit. Let us know in the comments below if you have experienced any issues with the game on your Windows PC, or if you prefer to be a console gamer these days.
