First time launch of the game was fine, however on subsequent startups Whenever i launch the game it brings up a black screen, after about 5 seconds i get sound but still no video, and then the game hangs there indefinitely, have left it for 5 minutes to see if it would do anything and it does not. When the black screen is visible it crashes the game whenever I click.
Specs: geforce gtx 1070 gpu, i7 7700HQ cpu, 16gb ddr4 ram, 64bit windows 10 os, 1TB Hard drive
current solutions I have tried with no success: reinstalling the game, manually changing my resolution in the properties file, deleting the properties file, verifying integrity of game cache and deleting save file. All of these have not fixed the issue.
Any additional methods of attempting to fix the game would be appreciated as i was looking forward to playing the multiplayer with a few friends.
