Game Crashes as soon as I load onto the campaign map

Ev4deEv4de Posts: 2Registered Users
When I load onto a new campaign, after a few seconds (usually less than 30s) the game crashes and my screen gets a weird visual bug with white boxes everywhere (see attached image). I can delay the amount of time it take for the game to crash by reducing my graphics settings but it will always crash eventually. If I rush into the first battle I can play through it with no issues, so it has to do with the campaign map. I was having VERY similar issues with Total War Warhammer 1 and 2 with an almost identical visual bug preceding the crash, though in those two, the game would eventually come back to working after a while.

This makes campaign completely unplayable, I haven't been able to find any similar threads...

Solutions already attempted:
-Reinstallation
-Game cache verification
-DirectX reinstallation
-Graphics drivers update
-Turning off almost every possible graphics option in game
-Running as administrator

Please please please help me I've been looking forward to playing this game for so long, I am a huge fan of the franchise :(

Happy to provide any further information if needed.

    I have the same issue! May I know your specs? Mine is i7-4720HQ GTX 980M 16 GB RAM. No problems in battles. Benchmarks getting 60 fps on campaign map and 57 fps on battles =(

    My specs: Ryzen 7 2700x, GTX 1080ti, 16gb ram. I play a variety of other games on my PC with no issues it's literally only with the latest total war games that I have this issue... At one point I managed to partially fix it for Warhammer II, I would still get the periodic freeze and white boxes, but at least it didn't crash my game. (If i remember correctly I fixed it by running as admin, forcing it to run in DX11, and running in windowed mode).
