Update your graphics drivers

Visit your graphic card manufacturers' website and download and install the latest driver. If you have a laptop, you may have to visit the laptop manufacturer’s website in order to obtain the latest driver. Please note that these can often be a few revisions behind the reference driver. If may be worth contacting your laptop manufacturer to see if they plan to update the driver soon.

For help on updating your drivers please follow the appropriate steps below depending on your card manufacturer and system type:

Windows PC

NVIDIA Driver Update
ATI/AMD Driver Update
Intel Driver Update
  • Go to https://downloadcenter.intel.com/
  • Select the ‘Continue’ button underneath ‘Intel® Driver Update Utility’
  • Select the button in the centre of the screen titled ‘Check your system for the latest updates’.
  • Give permission to run Java.
  • Give permission to run Java plug-in ‘SysReqLab.cab’ (or System Requirement Lab).
  • Download any new versions of drivers for your Intel graphics card.

Linux

For NVidia cards:
  • Ubuntu 12.04: System Settings > Additional Drivers
  • Ubuntu 12.10: System Settings > Software Sources > Additional Drivers
  • Ubuntu 13.04: System Settings > Software & Updates > Additional Drivers

For AMD cards:
Please follow the instructions found on this page -
MAC OSX
  • Expand the Apple Menu by clicking the Apple icon in the top left of the screen
  • Select Software Update
  • Proceed to install all available updates

Crashing on launch
In some instances, user system have been found with language settings configured for more than one locale.
We are actively investigating this matter but have a workaround in the absence of a fix:
  • Open System Settings and from there, Language Support.
  • In the Language tab, in the "Language for menus and windows" section, drag the preferred language and country to the top of the list.
  • Click on the Apply system-wide button (this will most likely require your password).
  • Click on the Regional Formats tab and select the equivalent language and country from the drop down list to the one that was previously selected.
  • Again click on the Apply system-wide button.
  • Close Language Support and System Settings.
  • Log out of the system and re-login (restarting will work as well).
Alternatively, please locate ‘sudo nano /etc/locale.conf’ and replace the line ‘LC_COLLATE’ with ‘# LC_COLLATE="C"'.

Once you have carried out this action, please restart your system attempt to run the game again.


Verify integrity of game cache

If you are having problems getting the game to launch or you are experiencing random crashes, it might be that the game did not install correctly or that some of your local game data has become corrupt. Please use Steam’s validation check at least twice as it can sometimes, incorrectly, report no problems on its first pass.
  • Load Steam
  • From the Library section, right-click on the game and select Properties from the menu.
  • Select the Local files tab and click the Verify integrity of game cache... button.
  • Steam will verify the game's files - this process may take several minutes.
  • Once the process is completed, the Check Window will automatically exit.

Integrated graphics
Some graphical issues can be caused by the game running through integrated Intel graphics cards as opposed to high-performance NVIDIA/ATI cards.

If you want to run the game through your dedicated graphics card, you will need to refer to your computers manufacturer’s documents or instructions if you are unsure on how to do this, or contact the manufacturer directly if you do not have these documents. Please be aware that this process can be different with each machine.
For the majority of systems, this can be done by selecting the 'High Performance' setting in either the NVidia Control Panel or the Catalyst Control Centre.


Additional information
Please also take note at this point that Steam only offers support for Ubuntu 12.04 and Ubuntu 12.10.
