No, I didn't use any mods.


Summary: Error shows up every time when trying to start a new game with it saying "File read failed! Please try to verify your installation!". After pressing OK the game closes itself everytime. Always happens during loading times to the main menu as well in sandbox battle or trying to start a new campaign. Never got further then that.

In addition to that, I have attempted to follow the common issues and workarounds and to verifiy the files through steam but they never seem to get downloaded nor replaced.
Let's try a clean install.
Clean Install
The clean install is removing every single game-related file from your computer and installing the game again. Why do you need to remove the game when you just want to remove the modifications? Unfortunately, some of the modifications do not just add a new modules folder but also change or add contents to the existing modules folder. Without a reinstall, we can't be sure those files are unchanged. You can find more information about how to do a clean install here.
