All three attempts didn’t work.

Edit: Recommendation removed, because it does not work.

some random person on steam reported using an old i7 while crashing

edit: for what its worth im on an rx6600 gpu, maybe everyone is using an amd gpu?

Pretty sure this is an AMD GPU issue, as it even fails to present a splash screen, so there’s a problem initializing the renderer, as if they forgot soemthing or failed to overwrite an old file that was critical for function on AMD GPU’s.

Tried that, the launcher did not crash immediately but after a few seconds now.

I figured as much, this isn’t the 1st time they were having problems with RDNA GPU’s.

Crashing here too.

I already tried:

Rebooting PC
Verifying Game Files
Setting Graphics settings to Low
Updating Graphic Drivers to latest. This fixed shaders too I assume.

Nothing works.

Alright - I’ve let our developers know.
