Arc a770 + 12900kf, Game keeps crashing

I have an arc a770 with latest drivers. I also reinstalled older driver just in case. I can run all other games (dragon’s dogma 2, diablo 4, etc.). I get to the title screen and start game/continue. It begins to load the game, and then the game crashes back to Steam.

I’m assuming this is an arc a series driver issue. please optimize/fix for this graphics card set.
