How to Fix: Dead Space 3 (Crashing, Freezing, Lagging)


Dead Space 3 came out!…last week. And just like Dead Space 2 and Dead Space 1, it is creepy. Oh so creepy.

They are managing to continue the series without making it dull too, which is always nice. So let’s get down to the reason you are here.

1) Dead Space 3 is lagging a lot!
2) Dead Space 3 is freezing
3) Dead Space 3 keeps crashing!

Which one are you? All of the above perhaps? Then you must be very unlucky. And I say luck because sometimes it seems to happen for no reason!

Anyway, we have some tips in our Dead Space 3 guide of game fixes. They are sure to help some of you, but not all unfortunately.

Fix Dead Space 3 Crashing / Freezing

Crashing is annoying. Especially when it happens when playing randomly (via freezing or genuine crashing). However, crashing on START UP of the game (once it is loaded) is most common and can result in black screens on launch and other pesky errors. This is even more common on Windows 8 than say Windows 7, Windows Vista, or Windows XP.
— Change your resolution
— Apply the latest graphics card drivers (they provide solutions for both NVIDIA and ATI for this game)

Fix Dead Space 3 Lagging

Lag is annoying, but not as bad as the other two problems.

— Turn off VSYNC
— Exit any software that could cause issues (and to free up memory / cpu)
— Lower the game’s resolution
— Turn off shadows
— Upgrade your video card drivers (they offer performance enhancements for Dead Space 3)
