    Watchdog crashes repeatedly

    This is the most frustrating game I've dealt with in 30 years of PC gaming. This is the first game I've ever uninstalled in frustration because it crashed so much.

    Things should be getting better, not worse.

    Windows 10 x64, i7 2500k, 16GB RAM, (2) Radeon 270x in 5760 x 1080 config... disabling eyefinity helps, but still crashes often, usually immediately after a death / respawn. Tried full screen, windowed and borderless.

    I'm so incredibly frustrated with this game I may not even pursue any steps to resolve it, I just can't even contemplate re-installing it right now.

    Hello harr2969, very sorry to see that you're having these experiences. If you do decide to re-install, here are a few steps might help avoid the crashes (though, I suspect you've tried most of them).

    Please try running the game and the Uplay client as Admin, and run WD in compatibility mode for Windows Vista SP2 64bit, Windows 7 SP1 64bit, or Windows 8 64bit. I'm sure it doesn't need saying, but make sure that your GPU drivers are up-to-date and that you have the latest version of DirectX. You shouldn't have to disable your secondary monitors, but it might be worth a try.

    If none of those steps help, we may need more info on your setup. If you want, you could submit a support ticket here by logging in, going to Contact Support >> Email Us. There, you can also attach your MSINFO.
