Same thing happened to me. Had to restart, this time removing Ironman. Now my issue is everytime I fight higher difficulty monsters like Unhold or Schrat, the game keeps freezing after a couple of turns in battle with them. I reload, fight, same thing… continuous crashes.
I hope they fix this. Just spent money on the game and DLC’s because i heard it’s good, and it’s unplayable right now in terms of progressing.
