Have you tried restarting your game?

If so and it still doesn’t work go to Steam > Libary > Sector’s Edge > Press on the little gear icon (to the very right of the ‘PLAY’ Button > Properties > Local Files > Verify Integrity of Game Files.

I believe this was caused by a backend issue that was fixed a while back. Please let me know if you still have the problem.

I am still having the problem as of 8:20 CT. I’ve restarted my game, checked the files, and tried some troubleshooting. Still getting the error.

This was related to a backend server issue, thanks for joining the Discord and letting me know :slight_smile:

hi i downloaded the game 1 day ago and im still getting the same issue.

ive reinstalled the game,opened the EAC launcher to repair it,launched the game as admin without steam,sent a log file to the discord and the game still doesnt work.

Is there any fix to that problem?
