I played the game last year on my PC w/o any issues. I re-installed it last week but it doesn’t even start. So after some Google researching I de-installed AntiVir (I don’t use Bull Guard or anything) and de-activated Windows Defender to generally check this bug potential. So I could finally start the game after re-starting my PC but even when choosing “official realm”, the game would in-game automatically switch to “modded realm” (one can see that in the friends list of Steam).
So I did some Google resarch again to fix this issue, manually installed EAC, verified the Integrity of Game Files and now the game doesn’t even start!
Please see the screenshot:
I want to play the game and obviously on the “official realm”. I did several restarts, verifications of PC but nothing helps.
This can be repaired using the EasyAntiCheat_Setup executable located in the Vermintide 2 ‘installers’ directory. The path to this directory on your PC will be similar to this: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Warhammer Vermintide 2\installers\EasyAntiCheat
Verify Game File Integrity (again), I do appreciate you mention having tried this already
Failing that, it may be worth it to try cleanly reinstalling Vermintide 2.
