A Note for Windows 8 Users
Attention Windows 8.1 x64 Users:

During development and testing, it’s come to our attention that there are some very important Windows KB updates for this version of the Operating System. Instead of including the 800MB for all users, we instead wrote this supplemental information Article.

How to check if you have the KB installed

If you keep up-to-date with your Windows Updates you should be all set! But, in case you haven’t, you can check if this is installed when you go into "Add Remove Programs" in Windows 8.1. Along the left side, there’s a feature to view your "Installed Windows Updates." This list is pretty long, but if you are able to see KB2919355 (800 megs) and KB2919442 (about 10 megs), then you’re good to go!

Where do I download these?

If you don't have these, here are the Microsoft links for the two System Updates we are referring to.

https://www.microsoft.com/download/details.aspx?id=42162

NOTE: Even though the KB number is newer, this one should be installed first
https://www.microsoft.com/download/details.aspx?id=42335

NOTE: This will download about 4 files, and there is a specific order on which these need to be installed.

Waited an hour after release to even play the game, doesn't even show button imputs. I'm trying to bare with you on this, but it's pretty hard considering this is a brand new $60.
I have these updates installed and I still can't get passed your launcher. Patch please.

Can you possibly make the links easier to distinguish which should be installed first??? why did you make it so confusing?
StAce Oct 7, 2016 @ 2:45am 
Made pre-order but still can't play. Is it fair??? I will give the worst estimation for the worst realization I've seen! Win7
Yeah lets update windows 8 and get hit with the nag ware that is GWX

It's kind of weird thing - today I was able to lauch the game and even play it for about an hour. But then game crashed - when I tried to lauch it again - nothing happens (the menu with start game and oprtion appears - but when I press start - it launches and immmediately closes with no errors), please provide a fix for this asap!
