The Finals is finally here but this past weekend has been a bit of a mess. The servers have been a big part of the FPS community’s frustration and this includes The Finals not launching at all and gamers getting a black screen in return. Here’s how to deal with this.

The Finals crashing black screen

Even after getting into the game or starting a match, a lot of players have ultimately had the game crash on them and end up with a black screen instead. Here is how you can try to limit the amount of times this happens.

  • Update your graphics drivers: Your graphics drivers should be updated before launching a game on your PC. Go to your GPU’s official website and find the latest driver version to download and install. Then, restart your PC and launch the game.
  • Best in-game settings: The Finals won’t run properly if you aren’t using the best graphics settings. But your PC might not be able to handle them so you’ll need to check.

The Finals system requirements

If you’re wondering if you’re getting the black screen due to your in-game settings, here are the system requirements to run The Finals properly.

If none of these help, it may just be an ongoing issue. The Finals developers will hopefully be dealing with all the matchmaking and server issues soon.
