The Launcher doesn't open

Issue Type (Required):


Issue Description (Required):

When I try to open the game steam shows that it’s launched for a couple of seconds and then shows that I’m out immedietly after. Nothing opens and it doesn’t even appear in the task manager.

Reproduction Rate (Required):

Constant (100%)

Platform (Required):

Steam (PC)

Could you see if anything here can help, please?:

Nothing helped. Also, the easy anti-cheat and the binaries folder executables launch the game itself, steam does not detect that and the backend error happens when I try to log in, but launcher itself refuses to open.


It is expected to encounter the Backend Error if launching directly via the .exe.

What are your PC’s specifications please?

In addition, please include your darktide_launcher.log:

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 1500X Quad-Core 3.50 GHz
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050
RAM: 16 GB

For some reason it isn’t here, I think it still isn’t here even after restoring files, but let me try restroing files one more time

Yep, its non existent since me trying the appdata darktide folder deletion method

What do I do now?

There is no darktide_launcher.log, is that correct?

If you’ve ran through the provided solutions, unfortunately, it’s very much a shot in the dark.

I’m happy to assist with a refund?
