Mine started crashing while I was playing, it randomly just closes the game and brings me to desktop...Idk what the problem is, sometimes I play for 3 hours uninterrupted and other times it crashes every 2 minutes.

been playing for hours intermittently and no crashes whatsoever. interestingly enough, when i was initially playing around with graphics options and turned FXAA on, i got my first and only crash a few minutes in. disabled FXAA and zero crashes. not sure if it was even related to FXAA or not, but if you have that enabled try disabling.

tried disabling most of my graphic options, trying to work from the ground up. still to no avail. i found a temporary fix i can start the game in window mode and i can actually play no problem, but i need to play it not in windowed mode obviously and i dont see a way to change it from window mode to normal while in game.

Try rebooting after any time you exit the game. I've found that I can't start the game back up properly if I had it up earlier, and the only way I've found to make it work is rebooting my PC.
The fun has been DOUBLED!

thanks not sure if it was saving in window mode or restarting that solved it. i am able to start the game normally now but it is lagging pretty bad definitly need to fix the frame rate now. i know its not my hardware but i just can get it to remain at a steady 50-60fps
