Check Your Internet Connection 

If that doesn’t work, it’s a good idea to test your internet connection. While it’s not likely a problem on your side since you can download the game, you may not have a strong enough connection to run the game. It can never hurt to try and take a look. I know that my speeds drop from time to time — or my service goes out completely, even if just for a short period of time.

If problems persist, it’s worth trying to play the game via mobile data. Though it depends on the mobile signals and strengths in your area, this can help pinpoint the issue further. However, we don’t recommend playing for too long this way — unless you have an unlimited data plan.

Clear Your Cache

Though it’s likely this isn’t the cause of crashing in FF7 Ever Crisis, it’s always good to clear the app’s cache if you keep running into problems. That’s especially true if you’ve tried the troubleshooting methods above and still can’t play.
