The Black Screen error can be quite a frustrating experience if you encounter it. You are just itching to play the game and you have to deal with a black screen. It’s not really the experience you want when you launch the game.

Thankfully, there are quite a few steps that you can take to ensure that you don’t face the black screen.

Update Drivers

You need to ensure that all your game drivers are up to date. Sometimes, Nvidia (or AMD) send out patch updates.

Make sure that your graphics drivers are up to date. 

Verify the Integrity of Game Files

Verifying the Integrity of Game Files will ensure that you can fix any corrupted files or any missing files. Steam will automatically check if the game needs any additional files and will download them as required. Sometimes, missing files are the reason for the Black Screen Error in The First Descendant.
