Game crashes after patch

After the patch, the game either closes and crashes to the desktop or the computer crashes. This never happened before the patch was installed. My system: AMD Ryzen 9 7900X 12-Core Processor, Ram 32 Gb, Asus 4070Ti. 1Tbyte SSD

Same here. Stopped playing for a month after I finished the game with my first character. Did the update and created a new character. Hit “start the adventure” and shut down immediately to desktop…

Second try : cinematic started, lots of textures not displayed (or res is minimal), sound breaks. It’s worse than on day one for me.
