The wait for Scorn is finally over, as the game has been released for PC and consoles. Scorn isn’t very demanding in terms of hardware, as the game requires an RTX 2070 as a recommended GPU. However, the CPU requirement leans towards high-end. Despite the game being well-optimized, Scorn PC players are experiencing errors and issues like the in-game crash, Unhandled Exception: EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION, crash at launch, and how to run the game on Windows 7. I have compiled a list of errors that PC players report, along with their fixes and workarounds.
