I have the steam version of the game and it works great if I am online. However, I am unable to play the game at all if steam is in offline mode. Why is this and is there a work around? This is a new laptop. Nvidia 1060 Grpahics card, 16 g ram 3.4 Ghz processor with all drivers updated and the like. I have verified the game cache. I have uninstalled and reinstalled. I have tried safe mode. I have no mods for the game. Thanks for your time!
