So when I try to launch the game from the launcher I get a black screen, in which I can hear the sound of the opening movie.

After awhile I get the above error. At which point the game stops working.

I have tried troubleshooting from] this thread but it has not helped.

I did not have this issue in the stress beta test.

I get the same error message when I exit my launcher, so it appears that your problem relates to the launcher shutting down for some reason.

I had the problem back in the beta and the game itself worked normally, not sure about now though.

Once more

Edit: seems this worked:

Check the thread in that link for more possible solutions if that doesn't work
