How to Fix Crashing in God of War Ragnarok

The most common issues for God of War: Ragnarok crashing are game data corruption, game disc problems, hardware issues, software issues, outdated console firmware, and network connectivity issues.

If your problem stems from one of these issues, you can:

  • Restart your console –

Turn off your console by holding the power button until the power indicators blink, then turn off. Once the console is off, press and hold the power button again. Release it after you hear the second beep.

  • Update your PlayStation –

This will probably be your solution, especially if you’ve been receiving error code PS CE-108255-1. Check to see if an update is available and if so, update your system.

  • Reinstall God of War: Ragnarok –

Go to settings, then to storage. Delete God of War from the list. Once the game is deleted, download it again.

  • Clear your cache –

If you have a PlayStation 4 and have been receiving error code CE-34878-0, shut down your console by unplugging the cable. Wait one minute before restoring the cable.

If you have a PlayStation 5, shut down your console and boot it up again in safe mode. You can access safe mode by holding down the power button for several seconds until you hear two beeps. Once this is completed, boot up your console and select ‘Clear Cache and Rebuild Database’. Clear System Software.

  • Hard reset your console –

This is more extreme than clearing your cache, but it will restore your console to factory settings. Hold down the power button until you receive two beeps. This will boot the system in Safe Mode. Choose to Initialize PS4/PS5, then follow the prompts.

If you go through with this, it will wipe everything, including system software.

  • Contact Sony Support –

If everything fails, it’s time to call tech support.
