After installing the 0.7.0f patch today, I was able to open the game fine, but after logging in and selecting a character, the game hung on the first load screen and hard-locked my PC (ctrl+shift+esc and ctrl+alt+delete non-functional, had to hold down the power button to hard power cycle to get it back).

Checking now whether it’ll happen again after restart.
edit: Able to log in and play just fine after a restart. Guess the crash was a fluke?
