While playing Need for Speed 2016 some players have issues with the black screen crash, to solve this issue you need to play the game in windowed mode. But at the start of the game there are no settings to change the screen setting from “Full Screen” to ” Windowed Mode” and you have to play the tutorial first. Just don’t panic and play the tutorial and every time it says to enter any key and you see the black screen just press “Alt+Enter” on the  keyboard to enter in windowed mode then press the required key and again press “Alt+Enter” to return to the normal full screen mode. You may have to do this for few times, when the tutorial is finished and you are in the training mission then open the world map by pressing “Esc“, here just press “Page Up” to open PC Settings and change your “Full Screen” to ” Windowed Mode“. That’s it no more black screens after this, but remember by applying the above workaround you will be playing Need for Speed 2016 in “windowed mode”.
