I purchased the game on epic, then it automatically downloaded eaplay. Deleted that * app and reinstalled origin. If I click on the desktop shortcut then it just keeps opening epic or origin, then doing nothing. Tried everything on this forum and it only works 5% of the time. Ive had better success with closing origin and epic, then starting the game within nvidia experience. It somehow opens origin with a ‘3rd party app’ so I cannot use the store or shop but atleast my game launches.
Product: Need for Speed: Unbound
Summarize your bug Crashes every time I launch
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Launching from steam/origin/ea all have same results = nadda
What happens when the bug occurs? after launching, client opens windowed, black screen, crashes.
What do you expect to see? The game I paid for
Ive tried everything i can find online. seems like 100s of others are having this issue. spoke to EA help and they were no help. Hoping a patch is coming soon to fix this.
So, I have Pre-ordered NFS : Unbound Palace edition through epic games, when I go to install the game on Epic Games Launcher, it redirects me to EA app, which is fine (I think). It downloaded fine on the EA app and it shows that I have installed the full game as well as add-ons (palace edition). But when I launch the game, it will open up my epic games launcher again (which I think might be fine), but when I wait or go back to my EA app it is in an infinitely long "launching game" screen. At first I went to live chat to see if they could resolve my issue, the advisor was helpful but my issue wasn't solved, after reinstalling the game, verifying files, reinstalling C++, Clearing launcher cache, reinstalling launcher, making sure my drivers are up to date and are clean installed, making sure my system is above minimum/recommended requirements, deleting certain files (PcDX12) restarting PC and basically doing every possible troubleshooting I could find on the internet. Nothing changed.
There is one issue that I saw on the forum by @Alameen25 that kind of has a small similarity to mine. We both have in common that we cancelled the preorder and then repurchased it to play.
For me, I originally pre-ordered the regular edition of NFS: Unbound. Then, later on cancelled it because I wanted to preorder the NFS: Unbound Palace Edition. I'm not sure this has anything to do with me being able to launch it, But I'd rather take a shot in the dark then no shot at all.
If someone has something they think I can try (that I maybe haven't tried already), I will either give it a shot or tell you that I've already done it. Hopefully someone at EA can fix this because I spent money and have been waiting for this game for 2 years just to not be able to play it.
Edit: I have tried launching on EA, Epic, Origin and even Geforce Experience and I've had no luck
Hey @EA_Atic, yep, I own it on Steam. It starts the EA app, and launches a black window that closes after a couple seconds; if I launch it from the EA app it does the same. There are no errors; it only closes.
