I updated the game to the Winter Patch, but now it is not opening. I use the play button in Steam, and it apparently tríes to load, but then it doesn’t open.
I played normally before the Winter Patch.
What can I do to play again?
When I have issues with games on Steam, I generally try the following (before reinstalling):
- Right-click on the game in your library.
- Select “Properties”.
- In the window that opens, select “Local Files”.
- Click “Verify integrity of game files…”
This will sometimes find and replace bad files without having to completely reinstall the game.
I haven’t had any issue with AoE4 via Steam so I can’t comment on this as a fix specifically for this case.
