So I updated to patch 7 and unfortunately the game crashes every time I try to customize my character. As soon as I try changing the hair style or facial hair a few times, the game crashes.
I tried both Vulkan and DirectX, both crashes.
I uninstalled the game and deleted all the folders, redownloaded through Steam. Still the game crashes.
If I skip the character customization altogether and start the game with a default looking character, the game seems to run fine.
