Black screen on startup.
I just purchased this game, and upon launching it I see nothing but a black screen. Unfortunately, this is not the only game this has happened with, but perhaps the most frustrating one.

My hardware is fine, that much I am sure about. I'm wondering if having the Windows 8 Release Preview is the issue.

Does anyone else have said build of Windows, and play this? Or, am I destined to go back to Windows 7?

I had an issue when I first downloaded the game where everything was black and was still able to start the game, but the only thing I could see was the the lights from torches. Everything else was black. The solution to my problem was that my graphics card had a setting to override anti-aliasing that I had to set to use the game's anti-aliasing. Once the override was turned off the game worked perfectly.

I have the same problem with Windows 7 Nvidia. Anyone have the solution?

I also have Win8 RP and had this problem. ATI 6670 and catalyst 12.10.
All I could see were torch lights and the UI, walls floors etc were black emptyness.

To my relief, problem fixed by anurias' suggestion: Catalyst setting Anti-Aliasing checkbox "use application settings" was not checked. (And is checked now for this game.) Things looking good so far.
