New AMD Drivers Fix Vega Crash in Destiny 2 & Wolfenstein II (17.10.3)

By Published October 27, 2017 at 5:12 pm

AMD’s newest driver pack should resolve player-reported issues of Destiny 2 crashes with AMD Vega hardware, including RX Vega 56 and RX Vega 64. The crash occurred during specific missions within Destiny 2, including the sixth mission (Exodus) and when nearing Nessus.

We received an email from AMD earlier notifying us of the new drivers, which can be found here.

The Destiny 2 fix is bundled together with Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus RX Vega-specific hangs/crashes, but otherwise contains all the same optimizations that 17.10.2 did. If you’re already on 17.10.2 and are not experiencing issues, there’s probably not much reason to upgrade. Anyone experiencing game-breaking crashes/hangs in Destiny 2 or Wolfenstein II should download 17.10.3 and upgrade.

Let us know if this solves your problems. We know that a lot of readers of our Destiny 2 GPU benchmark reported that they got stuck in the game from the sixth mission crash, so this should hopefully fix things in time for the weekend.

Steve started GamersNexus back when it was just a cool name, and now it's grown into an expansive website with an overwhelming amount of features. He recalls his first difficult decision with GN's direction: "I didn't know whether or not I wanted 'Gamers' to have a possessive apostrophe -- I mean, grammatically it should, but I didn't like it in the name. It was ugly. I also had people who were typing apostrophes into the address bar - sigh. It made sense to just leave it as 'Gamers.'"

First world problems, Steve. First world problems.
