Game keeps freezing (frame freeze) after installing India DLC

Hello! Is anyone experiencing their game freezing since the new India DLC update? I purchased the DLC and tried playing the Gurjaras 4 times but it froze on me 20 - 30 minutes into the game every time. Happens in single player as well as multi player. I can see that the other players continue to play unaffected but I am unable to control anything - Frame does not move & no button works. Only option is to force shut down the game and restart. I tried disabling firewall but problem persists.
Any help/advice would be very much appreciated.


I have this too! Not sure what causes it or how to fix other than Alt+F4

It is bug. Game softlockes. Game breaking, especially in multiplayer.
