Dude, I effin’ love you. I turned off async and no more crashes. I’ve finished the campaign (had about 30-40 minutes) and started a new one on (hardcore difficulty), I’m at the point where you have to defend the village right now. WITHOUT A SINGLE CRASH. I can’t tell you how happy I am right now. I should have turned this async off right away, these “special features” are always causing some problems in games. I had a similar problem about two months ago with Mirror’s Edge (the first one). The game would crash every time right after the tutorial level. Solution? Turn off physx.
TURN OFF ASYNC, PEOPLE.
