Remnant 2 is the sequel to the popular 2019 title, Remnant: From The Ashes. The sequel builds upon the foundations of the first game and improves it. The first game faced a lot of technical issues like errors and crashes, and unfortunately, Remnant 2 is the same as players report experiencing the “DirectX 12 is not supported on your system. Try running without the -dx12 or -d3d12 command line argument” error or LowLevelFatalError. In this Remnant 2 guide, I will list fixes that will help players resolve the DirectX 12 not supported error.
Remnant 2 DX12 Not Supported Error Fixes You Can Try
There are multiple reasons why the DX12 error is bothering Remnant 2 players on PC, like outdated Windows OS, outdated GPU, and more. The following are the fixes that PC players report have fixed the DirectX 12 Not Supported error.
PC users report that DirectX 12 Not Supported error was popping up while launching Remnant 2 on their outdated Windows 10 operating system. According to players, updating the Windows or resignalling it fixed the DX12 Not Supported error. Open Windows Settings > Windows update > check for updates > install updates > restart PC > launch Remnat 2 and the DX12 not supported error is now fixed.
If you are experiencing an issue where the Windows update isn’t installing for you, then retinal Windows and Remnant 2, and the DX12 error will be fixed.
PC users report that they are unable to fix the DirectX 12 not supported error due to Windows updates not installing. This can be fixed by resetting Windows through Windows Recovery System. Open Windows Settings > System > Recovery > Reset This PC. Follow the onscreen prompts and reset Windows. After the reset, Resitnall Steam and Remnant 2, launch the game and the DirectX 12 not supported error is now fixed.
Set -d3d12 As Launch Option
This fix is the opposite of what the Remnant 2 DX12 error is telling us, but adding ‘-d3d12’ as a launch option fixes the error. Right-click Remant 2 in Steam > properties > General > type -d3d12 under Launch Options and close the window. Launch Remnant 2 and the DirectX 12 error is not fixed.
Update GPU Driver
An outdated GPU driver is another reason behind the Remnant 2 DirectX 12 not supported error and can be fixed by updating it. I recommend that you manually download the driver and install it yourself for better results. Ensure to do a clean installation so that settings from the previous versions don’t interfere with the new install. This will fix the Remnant 2 DX12 not supported error.
Another fix for the Remnant 2 DirectX not supported error is installing/updating the DirectX. You don’t need to download DirectX as Steam downloads the DirectX setup by default for every game you download.
Open Steam library > type ‘Steamworks’ in the search bar > right-click “Steamworks Common Redistributables” > Manage > Browse local files. A new Explorer window will open. Go to _CommonRedist > DirectX > Jun2010. Run the DXSETUP, follow the onscreen prompts to install DirectX, launch Remnant 2, and the DX122 not supported error is now fixed.
Move The Game To C Drive
PC users report that moving Remant 2 to the C drive, if you have installed it on another drive, fixed the DX12 not supported error. So move the game install to the C folder and the error will be fixed.
