@RM10Indeed, the only workaround that seems to work it was to use 4G internet and changed my dns to google one Primary 8.8.8.8, secondary 8.8.4.4
Tried at home by change my router settings and didn't work.

Lisbon and Vodafone aswell... Any ideas how to fix this ourselfs for now? If the problem is with the DNS maybe there's a way to connect directly via an IP or something?

Guys, the only solution that i found, until now, is to use a VPN client . That works for me. I can play connected to the VPN , and if not connected the error persists.

Cuz if you use a VPN it is using another ISP to make the requests u want to make but can't. Maybe its possible to turn on the VPN just till you get to the character menu and then turn it off and play

@AnneYuritard Like I said, it works.
I downloaded ProtonVPN created a free account, started the VPN started the game, got in the menu, turned off the VPN and now I can play.
