"Currently your game purchase cannot be re-validated successfully, please wait 24 hours and try again."

Having issues currently with Borderlands on PC.

I try to load the game and get this error message:
2019-10-23

Clicking on the link brings me to this webpage:

Anyone else having this issue or know what might be causing it?

That’s Denuvo at work. Did you access the game from multiple positions, messed with bios or such?

Not to mention anything funny funny with networking.

I had formatted and installed Linux, first saw the error there.

Then formatted and installed windows, and the error persisted.

Is there a way to fix it? Or do I need to call gearbox or (shudder) epic tech support?

To me happened once with Doom because in that period was changing some hardware piece and each piece + hardware bios setting was resulting in a new machine id so i exceeed it and got that error a couple of times.
1 stime i was allowed in game after 3 hours or so, second required 24hours.
I suggest you wait at least 24 hours and check back.

Changing OS’s will be a major “Red flag” to it.
Like defencer80 said…let it cool down for a day or two.

Had this, waited a day or two, could play like 20 mins until some “watch this monitor” quest which didn’t work, updated drivers and installed some codecs to hopefully fix that - and now i get that message again…
epic store says 9h played… 8.5 of that the game didn’t even start.
for the 20 mins i played it stuttered every few seconds whenever stuff got loaded or something.
what’s there to re-validate? i’m starting the game through the epic store - how could i not own it…
huff so annoying…
