Total War Three Kingdoms Loading Screen Crash

The Total War Three Kingdoms loading screen crash is preventing players from being able to access the game once it’s been launched. You might have found that, after clicking the game’s icon on Steam, that the game appears as if it’s about to run properly.

However, after the developer and publisher screens have shown up on the screen, there’s no activity on the game’s end. The main menu is supposed to show up after the Creative Assembly and Sega logos, but nothing happens. People have taken to the game’s official forums to vent their frustration over it and ask why it’s crashing before the game has even properly loaded.

At the moment there isn’t a verified fix for the Total War Three Kingdoms loading screen crash. Creative Assembly is aware of the issue though and the development team is hard at work trying to sort it out.

One forum user has found a temporary solution to the problem that might work though. According to dragon1820, uninstalling your graphics cards does the trick. It sounds illogical, but here us out.

Uninstalling your drivers, through your Device Manager program, causes your PC to automatically download and reinstall them after you restart your computer. As such, this graphical issue can resolve the game’s loading screen crash and open the game normally.

Bear in mind that this has only worked for one player so far though, so it might not work for you. If it doesn’t, you’ll have to wait for Creative Assembly to patch through a fix.
