    Anybody any idea how I can get around this?

    Yes, I am connected to the internet, but the game won't start, saying the game requires an internet connection to start, cancel (shuts the game down) or retry (does nothing)

    I have this problem, too. Reinstalling might work

    Playing this game with a controller makes my head hurt, how broken is it that the PC version doesn't work, but I can play the Xbox cloud version on my pc with a controller. The quality checks on these gamepass pc games is absolute garbage.

    F1 2019(Windows) is forcing me to use my emulation sidebuild since it doesn't support the RTX 30 series!! While on Steam you delete one file and it works. The Ascent is a pile of steaming mess on Gamepass PC. I was super excited to try this game but guess I gotta get an "Active Internet Connection" in 2021.

    Re-installing twice hasn't worked so far.

    Corrupt, open the game while your xbox app is full screen. Worked for me. Also I reconnected to internet.

    Yeah, still no dice for me. Updated Windows to the most recent version, re-installed, etc. Must be cursed

    You need to use a VPN my guy. I downloaded a free one (ProtonVPN) There's some really bad coding in this game. Have fun!
    It's more than just a game, it's a passion.
