Hi Luke,

Sorry to hear you're having issues with the game. If I'm right looking at your system specs am I right in thinking that the game is installed on your HDD? The game can take some time to load on its first ever boot, can I just confirm you've waited for a while when launching the game, 15 minutes should be more than enough to confirm something else is happening.

Hi Lee

I actually ended up installing the game onto my OS drive and that fixed the issue. Thanks
