The First Descendant: How to fix Error Code NGS e3010509

If you’ve been hit by other errors like error code 1204 in The First Descendant, you can figure out that solving those problems can be a headache. In the curious case of Error Code NGS e3010509, it seems to be a little different. Mainly because there’s a lot you can do on your end before throwing in the towel completely. 

This error seems to pop up because certain files are corrupted. Usually, on Steam when games act up, it’s because some files didn’t install properly — the same can be said here. In most cases, you don’t have to reinstall the game if you check and repair the integrity of The First Descendant game files.

To do so, head over to your Library on Steam. Next, right-click on the game and select Properties. In this new window on the left bar, press Installed Files. Now, in this menu, look for the Verify Integrity of Game Files option. Click it and wait for Steam to fix and replace any damaged files.

Once that’s done, head back into the game and you should be able to play without any disruptions. Doing this is beneficial because it could also fix the lag and grainy texture issues if they appear in The First Descendant. 

What’s the reason for Error Code NGS appearing?

After doing some digging because I was hit with this problem, it seems to have to do with your anti-virus program. If the method above doesn’t fix the problem, you may have to whitelist the game to make it go through the firewall. Each anti-virus program has different methods of whitelisting games. My advice would be to look up how your anti-virus program deals with allowing programs through.

However, after talking to many other players facing this issue it seems like servers being down causes this problem as well. To check the health of The First Descendant’s server, you can check the game’s social media accounts like Twitter. In the meantime, did you know you can be an “Ultimate” Bunny in The First Descendant
