Black screen after opening video. (A workaround, sort of)

Just picked the game up on Steam, unfortunately I'm not able to play. After starting it the opening cinematic play but it eventually locks up my machine. Can't even access the Steam overlay with Shift+Tab.

Pressing Escape to get out of the cinematic just causes the game to hang sooner.

Have to end task the game with the taskmanager just to close it.

I far exceed the minimum hardware reqs, latest DirectX and my drivers are updated.

Windows 7
Phenom II X4
10 GB RAM
GeForce 560

Edit:
If you bought this via Humble Bundle Android 3, there is an easy workaround in the next post. Original issue still needs to be looked at but at least you can play.

A bit more information.

I just installed the standalone PC version and it runs fines. This appears to be an issue with the Steam version of the game.

Edit:

Did a bit more testing and copied the standalone version (except AnomalyWarzoneEarth.exe) of the files over to the Steam install copy and the game now runs fine.

Definitely an issue with the original Steam version.

Hi,
What if you do the "verify integrity" function on the game via Steam client?
thx
