This happens after clicking play at character select screen

Same results, no fixes identified. Looking more and more like an update issue, folks.

That got rid of the error! But now it’s telling me Steam must be running… when it is.

If I had a dollar for every time somebody posts the same ‘fix’ that allows you to launch the game but not connect to a server…


but can you join a server?


So i deleted all the files under certificates and am trying to verify before i start the game

the game opens but does not connect, if it checks the files, it downloads the certificates again and goes back to the current error

I feel your pain. I was really engaged to level up my harvest skills, but now I’m just hoping they make a quick fix soon
