Anthem will not Load past the title screen
System: Windows 10 (PC)
Launcher: Origin Launcher
Description: it will load to the title screen where it asks to configure in game settings. the title screen animations cease when the configuration stage is passed. the game seems to soft-lock as everything in the game window freezes. effectively freezing the title in place. i've been having this problem for weeks now. i re-installed the game once before.
Occourence: Every time i run the game
Work around: none, i can't even find anyone else who has the same issue. what i mean by that is that every other similar problem has involved people being disconnected before the server appear to be down. but for me i never connect to a server in the first place. no error message. i've waited 5 hours ONCE to no avail sand i am rather fed up with it.
Impact: knowing what i know i'd classify it as an Obvious Severity 1 Bug as it blocks me from ever playing the game.
no way to close it unless i exit the window. it prevents me from relaunching the game so i have to restart the computer. and because the origin launcher considered the game to be open it will not allow me to play any other games i can only launch on Origin. i have a feeling it might be a hard code error. within the code. unfortunately i can't wipe this computer like it's a test system so it can easily be one of the games or applications i have on this PC
