OK so I figued I would come back to this game and it downloads fine and installs correctly from what I can tell. I run the launcher and it downloads the patches, after that it goes to the cryptic loading screen and gets about 75% to completion when the screen flashes off and back on and the game freezes up. The system itself runs fine but the game refuses to load after that. I have noticed other people have had similar problems and was hoping for some suggestions on how to fix this.

I haven't updated anything other than the game. My firewall permissions are set to allow the game launcher to access the internet but to no avail. I have tried reinstalling it and even deleted all the files related to it and redownloaded it in case it was a corrupted file problem but it always freezes in the same spot.
