Game boots fine, upon loading into the start screen all the UI in the menu is nonresponsive. I can hear the soundtrack and even my clicks on the menu items but no response. Soon after this the entire thing freezes and mouse function ceases to exist. The game ran on the release date.
As soon as the start screen hits this problem is present every time.
Done a complete fresh reinstall, verified integrity of files, do not use a AV and added the game on firewall exceptions and run it via admin.
