Game has started to not play, when trying to start it trys to download the latest update (dec 03) which it already has. Then either comes up Error occurred while updating :- Content file locked or corrupt file while updating. Anyone had similar?

    Hi @JohnCraven336,

    Could you let me know which platform you are on so that I can try to help you further?

    Also, moving this to the Technical Assistance forum, so that it's in the right place. 

    Many thanks,

    Hi Faya
    The platform is a PC, all drivers and updates etc are up to date

    You need to verify your game files.

    If that does not work, I would backup, uninstall and restore from backup, this does the first time install and repairs MS runtimes.

    If you still have problems, reinstall Windows. Posting spec helps, just saying drivers are up to date is unhelpful.
    I'm not stupid, I just don't always have all the necessary information,...stupid.

    Hi all, please note I’ve merged the two threads together as they are about the same thing.

    Hi steviejay69
    My specs are :-
    CPU i5 - 4460 3.2GHz
    Graphics Radeon RX480 8GB
    24 GB ram
    The reason I didn't post them is the game has played faultlessly since launch until late December, and still occasionally starts and plays ok.
    I already have uninstalled and reinstalled twice, once from steam and once from original discs
