If you're playing Dead or Alive 5: Last Round on Xbox One and have been experiencing a steady stream of crashes, you're not alone. Many players are reporting the game's having issues, but some have apparently discovered a temporary fix, while Tecmo Koei works on an official patch.


All it takes is a quick search for "Dead or Alive 5 crash" to find a series of videos with the crash.

It happens 13 seconds in here.

And at two minutes and 23 seconds here.

This time, it's one minute and 39 seconds in.

Dead or Alive developer Team Ninja told Videogamer.com it's working with Microsoft. I've reached out to the company about when a patch might arrive for fans but haven't heard back.


In the meantime, some fans are reporting success by disabling throwdowns, which allow players to challenge one another. It's not ideal, but if you're looking to play a few patches, give it a shot.

This series got so sad. I loved DoA. I owned every version of this game from the 90s - up to DoA3, including the DoA++ arcade board. I was so hardcore on this game I was even invited to E3 a decade ago as a guest of Tecmo USA. Now it's just... so bad. The game, the progression, the DLCs... It's just all terrible and makes me sad.

I never wanted to be that guy, but this seems to be the way of the gaming world now. I miss the old days of buying a game that was already completed and properly tested, and that was it - no DLCs, no patches. Just, "Here you go, enjoy Sonic the Hedgehog 2!"
