Ok, so I found the solution to my issue at least, I needed the windows feature pack. Some European "N" version of windows does not come with the Media Feature pack that the standard home version does. Download at -> https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/mediafeaturepack
Remind the devs that I never got any error msg or anything, and all other games works fine. After installing the pack I can now start the game.
There have been a few guys in the discord that had this issue, myself included. I don't even get as far as you (no logo movie etc, just pitch black directly). Tried everything (re-install game, driver update etc, in the end I even went so far as I completely re-install the whole OS haha..), all other games work fine. As I'm on an AMD card, i'ts unlikely to be graphic card drivers. Never saw any solution in the forums/discord. But devs should be aware that there are several people having this issue.
