Can't load the game

Platform: PC

Do you have any mods? Not sure

Please explain the issue is in as much detail as possible: The game doesn’t get past about 2/3 of the loading bar. I may have mods, I don’t know how to remove them if I do, but I uninstalled the whole game and reinstalled it. Of course, if the mods folder is unaffected by that it obviously wouldn’t matter.

The issue appears identical to Game start loading fail, which doesn’t appear to have been addressed ever.
