I got the same issue right now 2 gaming PC doing the same thing. Only difference is they both crash after character selection now during the wormhole animation. One computer was playing the game just fine since launch. Today it broke on me. when I log out it threw me PSO2.exe error. Tried to relog and it too start crashing after character creation. 2 computer doing the same thing is not a coincidence. There is a bug in the game that's crashing people in the wormhole.
