Issues unresolved[edit]

Buggy ambient occlusion[edit]

The game's vegetation seems to be lacking ambient occlusion.[2]

Issues fixed[edit]

Game fails to launch: opens a white window before closing itself[edit]

Move the game to the system's C Drive[3]

First launch asks for missing CD Key[edit]

If you received the game on Steam alongside the Odyssey Season Pass, the game may ask for a CD Key upon first launch which is not provided to you.
Launch Odyssey first so that the game (and the season pass containing the Remaster) binds to your Uplay account[4]
