Game Crashing at the very start

Crashes back to desktop briefly after trying to load my realm. I’ve tried 4 times to load in to the game after the realm was named/created. A couple of times it just hung up trying to load me in to the game after selecting my realm, ultimately resulting in the “application isn’t responding” Dialogue.
I have the specified minimum required, with a Ryzen 5 5600 as the CPU and an Intel ARC A750 as the graphic card, plus 16 Gb of RAM. The game also takes 10 mins just to load the title screen

I can confirm, this happens for me too, but not always. However, when it happens, it is quite persistent.

Also, I think i found a way around it:
If you do not click “continue” but “realms” and start from there, it starts normally for me.
