Game mode: Online Official
Type of issue: Crash
Server type: PVE
Region: Europe


Starting up the game, and gets on the server. Suddenly the message “Pack file corrupt or tampered with. Please use steam option “verify integrity of game files” to repair game install. Exiting…” appears and when you press OK the whole thing shutts down.

Have been searching different forums for solutions, however no luck.

Have obviously tried to verify the steam files, but it happens time after time.

My specs:
CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 1500x Six-Core Processor
GPU: AMD Vega 64
RAM: 16 GB


Please provide a step-by-step process of how the bug can be reproduced. The more details you provide us with the easier it will be for us to find and fix the bug:

  1. Seems it appears when there’s much loading. Many buildings etc
  2. Can happen after 3 minutes in the game, or 3 hours
  3. Been playing several days withouth the crash, but the last couple of days it’s been loads of crashes
