It's very annoying to try and play a game that many people aren't even playing anymore and I still have problems getting into the game. This many months from launch it should be running more smoothly than it has been. It's like EA is trying to get rid of what little player base is left. 

 

I paid for the legion of dawn edition and I feel like I'm always the last one to get the content because the game simply doesn't want to load for me.

I have the same issue, cataclysm has worked once but we got wiped. I had to Alt-F4 out of the game because an infinite respawn screen.

Since then, I cannot enter cataclysm anymore, also with second loading bar at roughly 20% forever.

 

Too bad Cataclysm is here and I cannot play it Frown

 

What I've tried:

- restart game

- restart PC

- repair game

- un- and reinstall game

 

Please hotfix this before the event ends!

 5kramp posted a fix.. 

Although I only had to delete the BioWare folder in documents not the entire game. 

C:/Users/USERNAME/Documents

This workaround worked for me in the past:

 

  1. Close game
  2. Close Origin launcher
  3. Launch either Warframe, Destiny 2, The Division 2, or one of the Borderlands games
  4. Play one or more of the aforementioned games and wait for BioWare to fix the issue
  5. Enjoy!

Note: It is recommended that you repeat this process after (a.) new content is initially released and subsequently fixed by BioWare, and/or (b.) you complete the new Anthem content and are waiting for new content mentioned in their now sunset product Road Map.

Same here. Can load everything else except cataclysm. I restarted the game, deleted the bioware folder in my documents; nothing seems to work.

Re: Cataclysm won't load

Is this PC specific?

 

Did anyone find a workaround?

I don't work for EA, but I adore BioWare's Mass Effect, Dragon Age & Anthem.
I can be found here on EA Answers HQ and on BSN forums: http://bsn.boards.net

Funny thing - I launched Cataclysm on Normal difficulty and the game loaded successfully.

I played the mission on normal and after that I can access on GM1 and GM2.

 

Maybe I was just lucky or they guys fixed the issue but maybe try this if you still have a issue.
