I am having this same issue and I see other threads on these forums with this issue as well but was told on Discord “haven’t heard of this happening much” obviously not true. Everytime I go to the launcher it re downloads the game. I have lost 40 GB on my 250gb ssd (that hurts) because I have downloaded the game 4 TIMES! Spent hours already getting rid of it and I’m still about 20gb short.
What a convoluted way you all have made to download and launch this game. Why not put a desktop icon on your computer like every other game in the world does when you download it and just be able to click download on the website and just do it without having to mess with all this file crap? I haven’t even played yet! Should have waited until Beta and gotten it from Steam $50 wasted! Windows 10 64 bit. Internet explorer to extract it and I use firefox as my web browser.
