    The first time I booted it up, it worked. My computer randomly turned off while I was about to play it. Now the game won't start. I click it and nothing happens, but it shows it open in the task manager. I've reinstalled it and restarted the computer, but it still won't start. Anyone know what happened?

    I've tried running as admin, but no luck. Deleting all files of game and reinstalling again.

    First time I booted up Prey it closed itself after 30 mins maybe, because Bitdefender detected ransomware, lol. So I added it to the exception list, and had no problems whatsoever after that. Maybe it is a similar problem for the people who had the game working the first time, but not after.

    I deleted all files manually of the game and reinstalled. It seems all the files stay on your hard drive even if you uninstall. This fixed my problem.

    Been having problems just downloading it in the first. Got Prey to work. Metro was being weird but got that to briefly work up until it got an update it that wont get past 10%. The Surge has been stuck at 10% since it came to Game Pass and hasnt budged

    What I've noticed is when I have the app minimized or in the background the download almost never moves. It just says 0 b/ps when downloading, but when I close everything and leave the app open by itself on the desktop, it starts to go. I have 300 download internet, but it is still a very slow crawl to get games installed.

    Well now I'm having a similar issue. I've installed it in the past as it was part of Gamepass and it seemed to work fine. But now after having bought it, I can get to the title screen of the game, but then it just crashes after I press space bar to start.

    I've already tried reinstalling it, and making sure it deletes all the files which it does. But nothing seems be working so far.

    Gonna try installing it without any DLC and see what that does.

    Edit: Well after many hours of trying so many different things, I give up, the game will just not work.

    Did you try what I laid out in my topic about how I ended up getting it to work?

    Thanks Earthbound but I’ve deleted it, can’t be arsed to muck about with files, it should work without having to do all that, but I appreciate your help.
