    Has anyone experienced the main menu being pitch black? Do you know how to fix it?

    I am completely unable to play this game right now. After the "Press Start" screen, all I see is blackness. I can hear noises as I press the direction buttons, but still just blackness. I've tried restarting the game a few times and even did a full Xbox restart, still have issues. I'm able to play any other game I've tried just fine.

    Looks like something messed up my HDR settings. Managed to very near blindly stumble my way onto that settings screen and reset the HDR settings to default.

    If this happens to anyone else:

    After pressing start, go down 4 times for the Options and Customization menu, right for Settings menu, RB twice to reach Video menu, the HDR settings menu is right at the top and should be highlighted so just hit A, and finally the Y button should revert the settings to default. Hopefully you ended up in the right spot and can see again.

    Did you try to follow my last paragraph word for word right after the "Press start" screen?

    I know this was posted a few months back, and you'll not see this. But I just had the same issue happen to me and I never thought to check the video settings.... Thank you very much, the step by step guide you posted saved my sanity!
