We have noticed that most players observing the (0xc0000005) error as seen below have been able to resolve their issue by making the appropriate exceptions for both Darktide and Easy Anti-Cheat* in their Anti-Virus/Firewall software.
*Add the EasyAntiCheat_EOS.exe in Program Files (x86)\EasyAntiCheat_EOS
A Selective Startup can also help identify whether a background application is the cause of your error:
- Press the Windows key
- Type 'msconfig' and select 'System Configuration'
- On the 'General' tab, select 'Selective Startup'
- Deselect 'Load startup Items'
- Reboot your PC
If the error no longer occurs after having performed the Selective Startup, try re-introducing your programs one-by-one to determine which is causing your issue.
