Game Version:

Hi Yevhen,

Sorry to hear you're having trouble with the game. Sounds like you've already found a similar ticket which had the same issue with our currently recommended work around.

To roll back your game to 2.0.7 do the following:

  1. In your "installed games" list on the GOG Galaxy client right click War for the Overworld
  2. From the manage installation tab select "Configure installation"
  3. In the beta channels drop down select "Unity Engine 5.4.6 (WFTO 2.0.7f1)"
  4. Click OK, your game should then update to the correct version.

Let me know how you get on and if this temporarily solves your issue. I'd also love to get a hold of the crash log from you Posting Output Logs
