Borderlands 3 crashes repeatedly on start up (PS4)

Hi all,

I got borderlands 3 earlier this year but the game was repeatedly starting up leading me to give up. I started playing it again earlier this week, but each time it can take me upwards of 2 hours to actually start playing; the game crashes during the 2k, gearbox and claptrap screen.

I have tried uninstalled the game multiple times, starting it offline, rebuilding the database.

As you all can imagine this is frustrating to the point where I want to give up. Any ideas? Or is this game just completely broken?
