Update Your Drivers

Another reason for Outlast Trials crashing is an outdated graphics driver. We highly recommend getting the latest update for your PC to ensure the game runs smoothly. You can visit your hardware manufacturer’s official website to get the latest update for your device.

Updating drivers manually can be complicated and time-consuming. For a simpler method, we recommend using IObit’s Driver Booster to automatically download and fetch the latest and needed driver updates for your PC. Follow these steps to use the software:

  1. Download Driver Booster.
  2. Install and run the software.
  3. Click the Scan button and let Driver Booster scan any outdated drivers on your PC.
  4. If the software found any outdated driver, click the Update Now button located on the upper left of the window.
  5. Wait until the Driver Booster finished the driver download and installation process.

Note that your PC may restart several times depending on the drivers that are being updated. After the driver update completion, try running Outlast Trials again to see if the issues have been fixed.

Verify Game Integrity

If you’ve tried the two methods above and still experience Outlast Trials issues, try verifying the game’s integrity. Using this process, Steam will scan all the needed files or fix any corrupted files associated with Outlast Trials.

Here’s how to verify game integrity:

  1. Open Steam and go to Library.
  2. Select Outlast Trials from the game list on the left side.
  3. Right-click and select Properties.
  4. Click the Local Files tab.
  5. Click the Verify integrity of game files… button.

After clicking the verify button, wait until Steam completes the file verification for Outlast Trials. You can do the same with Epic Games Launcher here.

Close Background Applications

Resource-hogging applications installed on your PC can also cause Outlast Trials to crash. We recommend closing any software that you’re not using while playing Outlast Trials. Some of the most popular software that eats lots of resources while in the background are Media Players, web browsers such as Firefox and Chrome, and more. You can close these applications by using the Task Manager.

Set Graphics Settings to Low

Another method to fix Outlast Trials crashing issues is by setting the graphics settings to low. Although it may not give you the best visual experience, it will help in making the game run more smoothly. To set the graphics settings to low, follow the steps below:

  • Launch Outlast Trials.
  • Click on Options.
  • Click on Video Settings.
  • Set the graphics settings to Low.
  • Click Apply.

Uninstall and Reinstall Outlast Trials

If none of the above methods work, you can try uninstalling and reinstalling Outlast Trials. Sometimes, there may be an issue with the installation of the game itself. To uninstall Outlast Trials, follow the steps below:

  • Open Steam.
  • Right Click on Game
  • Click on Uninstall.
