Downloading data screen crash

So my friends game will not get past the downloading data screen. The game opens. Press any button to continue screen comes up, then it says “DOWNLOADING DATA” then freezes then crashes. every single time unless the computer is disconnected from the internet. Weve tried IP adjustments, toledo adjustments, installing on different drives, deleting and reinstalling a thousand times. its a new intel machine with a 970 in it. all drivers are updated. im a techy and i just cant for the life of me figure this out. pls halp

Hello, Thebradoflife,

Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling the game? I’m not too experienced with the PC version of this game, but it may help to fully refresh the build by doing a clean install of the game.

Let me know if this solution works for you.
