Crash right after starting the game
Need More Info, WishlistPublic


When I start the game, doesn't matter if over steam or the .exe, I get a black screen for a second but then the game minimizes in my taskbar and then dissapears completely, however steam says "ingame" for 3-5 more seconds; then gets back to "online". I already had about 12 hours of play-time and it just happened randomly. It was not the new patch that produced this bug. (at least I think).
PS: No error message at all.
