Every time I try to play the game it crashes. Tried messing around with the settings, still won't launch. Diagnostics says the program is causing an "exception access violation". Any way to fix this?

Same Problem. Exception access violation in module (UNKNOWN) at 001B:00000000.

Read somewhere that its go to do with OpenGL rather than Direct3D drivers, but cannot confirm this.

Pitty, was looking forward to this game, but not willing to invest in something that will not even start up.

Have tried all the standard fixes for game crashes: update drivers, defrag files, verify integrity, reinstall game, etc. also checked every graphics option from bare minimum through to maxed out

I'm Sure they will develop a patch that solves this problem, but it will take time and cost them a huge amount of theoretical income from people who looked once and gave up.

this problem suggests either a rushed development cycle or too little beta testing at the end, as you would think someone would notice that the game won't even load.

If you have OpenGL settings : Triple Buffering enabled, you will crash. Disable Triple buffering on your GPU control panel.

Finally got it working. All it took was the purchasing of a new computer with a nVidia card rather than an ATI card.

But of course, considering I played and finished the game with my ATi card with 0 problems whatsoever.
