Can't complete character creation

Hello, I just got Kingsmaker from Epic games. Figured I’d try it out, but I can’t get past character creation.
I tried searching online and there are some discussions about crashes and such, but for me it’s different: the game doesn’t crash, it doesn’t get stuck while loading, it simply does nothing!
Whether I create my custom character or pick a premade, I keep pressing X/R1 until I’m at the screen where I can check again all the options I picked and the “COMPLETE” option appears in the low right, but when I press again literally nothing happens. I can go back or press triangle to explain each option, but pressing X does nothing.
