Dark Souls 3 Bug on Consoles Causes Crashes

Dark Souls 3 Bug

Update for PC version: We posted a guide on how to fix the Dark Souls 3 PC errors here.

Bandai Namco and From Software developer revealed that a Dark Souls 3 bug causes crashes of the game for the console versions when users try to play online and do some particular things.

A patch should be available until the game officially launches on 12 April both for consoles and PC.

The crash happens when a player walks over a certain unrevealed number of summon signs while they play Online. This issue is important because most players are constantly in the Online mode of the game. It seems like the Western version of the game is the only one affected/

How to fix this bug: Developers said that this bug can be avoided if you play the game in Offline mode. At this moment, they are working on a patch to fix it and it will be available until the game launches. The patch will most probably be available also on the first day of the game release.

Unfortunately, this patch is coming too late for those who received an early copy of Dark Souls III. Numerous outlets have reported crashes during both the console and PC versions of the game.

The game is currently available in Japan and also many players outside Japan play it too because of a glitch that allowed the International version of the game to unlock at the same time as the Japanese release date, provided the customer jumps through some hoops.

From Software developers have just five days to complete the patch that will fix this game-breaking glitch. While it’s unlikely that they won’t meet the deadline, at the very least, gamers won’t have to tolerate the bug for very long and know what to avoid if the patch isn’t released before the game hits store shelves.

Hello, my name is Denis, I am a gaming enthusiast and I started this website to help other people fix their games issues. A few years ago I saved some money to buy a game that I expected for a long time and I was unable to play it due to some issues. After that, I started this blog to help others in this situation.

    Is there any news if the Bug has been fixed. Im constantly experiencing crashes on my PS4 since release. Offline is okay but online does not work sadly 🙁

    This bug has not been fixed on the ps4 and it only seems to affect those of us who bought the physical copy as 4 of my friends do not experience this error , and they all have a digital copy. It hasn’t been one day that the game doesn’t crash at least 5 times before it stops and if I try to invade someone it happens more often. Damn this random crashes hate this and I recently just stopped playing. It’s just unbearable.. Any help would be appreciated
