Which Version do you have, Steam or DMR?
Did you try to run it as administrator?
What's your Spec?

Further to, I would reinstall it or varify it, when you are at the steam version

Go to "D:\Steam\SteamApps\common\War For The Overworld" and look for an executable file.

You have varified WFTO or tried to reinstall it?

Tried to reinstall it before but i'll try again.


Found the executable file and it goes further, actually launches but always ends up with the same problem.

Does re-install solve it?

Which anti virus are you using? Certain ones (looking at you AVG!) have a habit of throwing false positives and disabling the exe from working properly, even if you're not using AVG putting that exe on the whitelist might help.
