Steam Crash on Launch

PCNA- anyone else crashing upon launching the game? Can't even get past login screen. Crashes to deskstop. Using Steam. 3 times in a row, no luck D:

    I'm PC-NA too, on Steam and have no problem.

    One thing I can think of: have you checked that your Steam is opened once only? Steam has to be closed via the menu and clicking "Exit". If we don't do that, like for example "closing" Steam with the X in the upper right corner, it's a fake closing and Steam remains opened (hidden): next time we open it, we then have it double and that causes troubles, like the game crashing upon loading.

    For that reason, on my side, I have pinned Steam to my taskbar. The advantage is that if I have Steam doubled, it appears in the taskbar as "Steam (2)". I then know where is my problem. :)

    Hope it's "only" that, otherwise, no idea. Good luck.
    I'm out of my mind, feel free to leave a message... PC/NA

    Try validating the game files via the launchers repair function if you haven't.

    PS. Don't use the steam repair function.

    The first step in troubleshooting. Have you try rebooting the OS?
