Goat Simulator 3 is a chaos simulator where you play as, you guessed it, a goat. While you can play as a goat in the game and do normal goat things like bleat and run around, the game allows you to do so much more. It has been one of the best chaos sims since launch, and it allows you to do all kinds of crazy things with your goat in-game. Unfortunately, PS5 players have recently encountered a bug that is preventing them from enjoying the game as they would like to. The game keeps crashing, due to which many are unable to log in. If you are also encountering the same issue, continue reading until the end for more details.
Issues like this usually get patched out, but that takes some time. In the meantime, if you really want to play, you can try some workarounds that have worked for other players at times like this.

However, don’t lose hope; there are still plenty of workarounds you can try to solve this issue.
Goat Simulator 3 Crashing on PS5: How to fix It?
As of right now, we don’t really know what exactly causes the issue. However, we do know it is caused by saving the game while last playing as a certain in-game character named Steve. The developers are aware of this, and there has been a patch rolled out with a fix for this issue. But, if you are still experiencing the same issue, here are some workarounds:
1). Delete the save file and restart
Deleting the latest save file might solve the issue you are having. Since the game does have autosave and you can play as multiple goats, you have the option to delete the save where you last played as Steve. This can solve your issue, and you can get back to playing Goat Simulator 3.
2). Uninstall and reinstall the game
Uninstall and reinstall the game to make sure there are no corrupted files leading to this issue. This will allow the game to redownload all the required files, and this can solve the issue you have been having.
3). Rebuild Database
This is a workaround suggested by a player on Reddit. For this, you will need to follow these steps:
- Turn off your console and hold the power button for 7 seconds until you hear two beeps. Now, connect your controller to the console using a USB cable.
- The console should boot into safe mode.
- Now, in the safe mode menu, navigate over to the Rebuild Database option and select it.
- Once selected, wait for the process to be completed, and then reboot your console. After this, launch the game and check if the issue persists.
4). Update Game
If you haven’t updated the game for a long time, you should do so now. New patch updates bring fixes to existing errors and issues in-game, which is why updating the game is always a must.
5). Reach out to support
