Initialization Error 4 on PC


When I try to launch Assassin's Creed: Origins on PC, I get the following error message: "Initialization Error 4". What can I do to fix this?


We are aware some players on PC are affected by this error. If you are in this situation, please try to disable background applications to prevent software conflicts. 

If this does not solve the issue, we recommend to try uninstalling all system performance enhancing software on your PC. This should allow you to start the game. 

However, if the issue persists after trying both, please feel free to contact us! We'll be happy to look into it for you. For technical such as this, attaching a Dxdiag and an Msinfo to your tickets will allow our support team to better understand your situation.
