Check if your device meets the Redfall system requirements

This game doesn’t have the lowest system requirements, so your device may not meet them. Take a look at the recommended spec and change your in-game settings accordingly if needs be. This may help you improve the performance of the game and prevent it from crashing.

Lower your graphics settings

As we already mentioned, the game has bad optimisation at launch. So, if your PC meets the requirements, but you still can’t play Redfall normally, then we suggest you lower the graphics settings as much as you can. Try to make them as low as possible and check if the game’s performance improves.

Verify the integrity of game files

If some files are damaged or corrupted, then the game will definitely not be able to work properly. So, you need to make sure that everything is fine with these files. You can do it in Steam by following the next steps:

  • Open the Steam Library.
  • Open the Properties menu of Redfall.
  • Open the Local Files tab.
  • Click on the Verify Integrity of Game Files button.
  • After that, any corrupted or damaged files should be fixed and you should be able to play Redfall.

Update drivers on your device

You need to make sure that your device has the latest drivers installed. Usually, they get updated when a new game comes out. So, you should download the latest version as it might help your game perform better.
