If Black Desert Online is your favorite game, you should know that the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update breaks it. More specifically, the game instantly crashes after gamers install the latest Windows 10 OS version.

Of course, this problem does not occur for all players. However, judging by gamers’ reports, it appears that the game is crashing during loading 5 out of 10 times, which is extremely annoying.

In other words, if you want to enjoy a smooth BSO gaming experience, you should refrain from installing the Windows 10 version 1709.

Other BSO issues after Fall Creators Update

Unfortunately, this is not the only issue that affects BDO after the upgrade. Other players reported that they couldn’t log in shortly after installing the update. The game closes after they select a channel.

I am on version 1703. Came home today and was logged out and now cant log in. I get to selecting a channel then the game quits. Sorry not very tech savy. Not sure what to do.

Gamers who didn’t upgrade are also plagued by game crashes after installing the Patch Tuesday updates available for Windows 10.

Here’s how one player describes this bug:

I actually had a windows update a few days ago that broke BDO already, eventhough it wasn’t the Creator update. I can log into a server but game crashes (without error message) after a few seconds. Update calls itself a security one so I’m hesitant to do a roll back… I hope the devs are on top of this issue.

All in all, it appears that there is a compatibility bug between the current BSO version and Windows 10 which causes many issues.

Chances that this bug gets fixed in the coming days are not that high, so our piece of advice for you is to postpone your system and drivers updates for a few days if you want to be able to play BSO.
