Gears 5 on PC is freezing in ACT 3

Right after the checkpoint where you are near the cargo plane and have to go to the ambush, it starts off great but quickly fps drops and game freezes. I can’t even alt+tab back. Before this, the game ran very fluently with avg of 70fps on high settings at 1080p for me. I did the benchmark again and it worked fine. I tried to play at the lowest setting possible but it still eventually locks up at ACT 3 at that point.

My system:

GTX 970
Core i5 4570
16GB RAM
Win 10 pro
