Resolving Game Starting Issues
Intel Integrated Graphics
There is a known problem with the game failing to start/crashing upon starting a game level with outdated graphics drivers using Intel integrated graphics cards. Be sure to update your graphics drivers, as that fixes the problem.
Goes without saying that making sure your hardware should be capable of meeting the minimum requirements is something to keep in mind, too.
If you have 2 cards running in SLI – that could be causing problems. Disabling SLI should take care of the issue.
