Graphics Initialization Error

Steps to reproduce

Run Game

Describe your issue

When I start up the game on steam I get a "Graphics Initialization Error" box saying: "OpenGL v2.1 or greater is required to run this game. Updating your graphics drivers may resolve this issue". The main game screen is just completely white. I have updated my drivers and nothing has changed. I'm uninstalled/reinstalled, verified the integrity of the game cache, restarted, etc. Nothing has worked. I definitely meet the minimum requirements as my specs are:

Processor Intel® Core i5-2520M CPU @ 2.50GHz, 2501 Mhz, 2 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s)

System Model HP Pavilion dv6 Notebook PC

Installed Physical Memory (RAM) 8.00 GB

Windows 7 64bit

Radeon HD 6770M graphics

What can I do to get this to work?

Wait for the Tuesday update, and see if that works.

A lot of integrated video cards are really crappy OpenGL support, and drivers that don't automatically update to the the latest versions when you try to update them. The new version uses some sleight of hand to translate the OpenGL calls into directx stuff that is better supported by most manufacturer's drivers.
