Crashing on startup? Attention: 10th and 11th Gen Intel Users

Hello everyone.

If you are crashing on startup, there is a compatibility issue that concerns 10th and 11th gen Intel CPUs and most Unreal Engine 4 games.

The crash fix can be found here: Intel Ice Lake CPU - Crash Workaround - PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS

For those curious, Intel made a post about this issue in 2019 (which we and other developers apparently never got the memo about), which goes into more detail about the issue. OpenSSL* SHA Crash Bug Requires Application Update

We have found a patch made by Epic Games to integrate the fix into our game, and will be working to have this patch integrated in a future update.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
