Game crashes after opening cinematic

Since the last update my game just crashes randomly after the opening cinematic. I have already verified the game file on Steam but this did not help. The game crashes before I get to see the main menu screen and it brings me back to desktop without any error message.

Please fix as soon as possible.

Same for me.

I’ve tried to reinstall the visual studio run-times and did a Windows reset with AoE reinstall. Didn’t help.
