Game not booting up

★★ Novice

Product: Need for Speed: Unbound
Platform:PC
Summarize your bug After choosing my starter car the game crashed and now it won't boot up.
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? I don't know because it happens with just starting the game.
What happens when the bug occurs? I click to start the game and EA App closes down, then a little black window which is the game appears for a few seconds. It then the black window covers up all the screen and then it closes and EA App pops up again.
What do you expect to see? The game running well.

I tried repairing the game files and reinstalling the game but I'm having no luck.

A good samaritan on reddit helped me out!

Here are the things I had to do to fix my game.

- Delete savegame from My Documents

- Updated graphics card drivers

- Delete a file that has "DX12" in it's name ( I don't remember the exact name)

In my case I didn't need to update my graphics card drivers, the other things were mandatory in my case to make it work
