Fresh Install - Black Screen Flash/Freeze following by crash

yeffyeffyeffyeff Registered Users Posts: 1
My game is crashing during the first battle right at the beginning of the game. It begins by freezing/flashing a black screen. After about a minute I get a full crash. A notification pops up on my desktop saying "application has been blocked from accessing graphics hardware."

Have tried multiple fixes found in these threads including:
Verifying game cache
Uninstalling geforce experience
Clean install of graphics drivers


No mods are in use, running 1440p windowed
Nvidia 1080ti
Intel i7 8700k
16gb ram
