So regarding the crash when pressing new game bug (game launches and can browse menus but instantly crashes upon clicking start new game). Its clear from reading the posts about the issue that it is somehow related to the installation of microsoft's C++ (which i have tried to install with no luck).
Assuming i cannot resolve the bug with the installation of c++....Is there anything to look forward to in terms of bug fixes or solutions via a patch of some kind by the developer? if not i see no alternative other than refunding the game on steam which would sadden me.
click start new game; game crashes
