Error LS-0013 Game crashes on startup

At launch I was getting the black screen error where I could not view cutscenes, and also crashing on exit to Windows. But since the patch (game is showing as version 1.0.54581?) the game no longer launches at all! I get an error LS-0013 code and if I click the link to the knowledgebase the code isn’t even listed!

I have tried verifying and also uninstalled/reinstalled the game but still it happens.
