I recently purchased the game and already played a few hours before the latest patch (i didn't have much time for playing since the patch) and i wanted to continue my campaign today so i started the game but i can even start it anymore. I get an popup saying: "failed to initialize the engine". I already tried to verify the integrity of the game cashe, but it didn't help, so i uninstalled the game and redownloaded and reinstalled it, but i still get the error. I'll attach my DXdiag.

Sadly it did not help :S Still the same error... Is there any possibility to go back one version, because it worked fine before the patch...

I got mine working after disabling the secondary gfx-card I have on my laptop.
Mine is running a Radeon as primary (dependant on power-settings) and Intel HD chip when on power-saving.

All I did was enter the device-management screen and disable the Intel HD one.

It's worth a shot!
