After i start the game shows the RESPAWN and EA ... loading logo shows up ... and after nothing just black screen and the music.
But when i hit the CTRL+ALT+DEL , and go back to the game , it shows me just like a screenshot from the menu.

I have the same problem, but when I start the game, I do not see the logos and the screen goes black. I can hear all the sounds of the game, but no picture. Any solution?

No Logos, just a Black Screen + Sound after starting the game.

 

Updating graphic drivers, reinstalling game, reinstalling origin and verifiying game files did NOT work.

I have the same problem. Running the game in fullscreen results in a black screen, changing to windowed mode (adding -w to the target of the shortcut) makes the game playable though.

Adding -w to the shortcut does not work.

I also tried ALT+ENTER when it was running and it does change from Fullscreen to Windowed or vice versa but its stays black.

When it's minimized and I hover over it I do see the game in the preview window but as soon as I click on it it's just a black screen.

 

EDIT: Adding -windowed to the shortcut target did work... guess -w wasn't enough...

Hello guys,

 

I am experiencing the exact same issue. The game works in windowed mode as well. going fullscreen doesn't crash the game, but shows a black screen even though I'm still "inside" the game.

 

My specs:

 

Microsoft Windows 10 Home

AMD Ryzen 5 2500U

Radeon Vega 8 Mobile Graphics, 2000 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)

8.00 GB RAM

Press "ALT+ENTER" then the game will open in window mode then go to SETTINGS/ VIDEO,

Go to "DISPLAY MODE" and select "BORDERLESS WINDOW" and enjoy.
