I updated today, and can no longer fully launch the game.
Whenever I click "play" on Steam, my username in the top right turns green, the game says "Running" in the game list to the left, and the cursor turns into the blue loading circle. This happens for a few seconds, until for a split second the following window pops up:
So basically, this window flashes on screen, with the green loading bar moving a very small amount. After a second, the window disappears, my Steam profile turns blue again, and NaW no longer says "Running" in the game list.
I went through the "Known Issues and Solutions" and tried every solution for Known Issue 6 - Game Crashes On Launch or Stops Responding (Freezes)
and Known Issue 2 - Game Crashes After Update
I have re-installed the game twice now, and verified the integrity of the files many times. I have disabled my anti-virus and allowed the game through my firewall. I am truly at a loss here.
OS: Windows 10 64-bit
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-4210U CPU @ 1.70GHz 2.40GHz
Memory: 8GB RAM
DirectX Version: 12
To be clear I was able to launch the game perfectly fine before the update.
What other steps should I be taking to fix this issue?
