Everything seems fine at first, launcher loads/patches, I can "ENGAGE" but after my character is loaded and I press "PLAY" the entire computer shuts down. I've tried this on my laptop and two desktops now, the current computer has perfectly updated everything and the game isn't even running long enough to overheat. The game is just entirely unusable.
What power supply and what resolution are you running at? You may want to attempt running at the lowest resolution because it could be your video card drawing to much power off of the PSU Rail and shutting the PSU down.
EDIT: Wait, you have three systems all shutting down at the same point?

I tried the force verify and the game shut down once again after it was all verified and I'd got to the "PLAY" button. Can you think of anything else besides a virus? I've already wasted my entire day off trying to get into this game.
Edit: I also want to add that this is a new issue, it was working fairly OK on the laptop from last Saturday 2/13 until Wednesday 2/17. It fried the laptop Wednesday night - I chalked it up to the laptop not being able to handle the game in the end. I was even willing to believe it was my desktop computer that perhaps wasn't up to date or something like that but now that it's installed on my husband's computer I cannot imagine this is anything but a serious error in the game.
