I cannot even get to the char selection screen, so it is quite bugged.
Dark side is a pathway to many abilities, some consider to be unnatural.

Seems to me the issue is related to fullscreen tbh, or fullscreen windowed mode.
Worth a shot but hasn't worked for me yet, will report back if it does.

How about fixing the NO LOADING SCREEN OR GAME OPENING AFTER HITTING PLAY....

THIS IS THE MAIN THING PEOPLE ARE EXPERIENCING.

For game not launching at all this isn't working, sadly.

Hi everyone,

Again, thanks for your patience while we work on this. I want to be sure that folks do not mistake this issue (very long loading times to get to Character Select) with not being able to launch the game at all after clicking "Play". If you're not hanging at the loading screen, it's not the same issue and may require completely different troubleshooting. We are absolutely looking into those reports as well!

For those of you who are experiencing the loading screen issue, we are continuing to investigate and are taking note of the fact that folks are experiencing success when using the workaround provided in the Customer Support forums and linked above. We'll use all of your information and will be sure to post an update when we have more details available.
