Unable to play HW: DE Offlne

OP Spartangold125

I have followed the instructions for playing offline on Windows 10 here: https://support.xbox.com/en-GB/games/game-setup/play-games-offline-windows-10
While I can play HW: DE offline if I have immediately disconnected without restarting my PC, the game crashes immediately when I try to load it up after I have restarted without reconnecting to the internet.
I've been having this issue since the December 20th Early Access launch. I've reported it both on Reddit and Microsoft support numerous times, but, I guess the message never got to the devs, as the recent update did not fix it. I'm not happy about this one bit, espcially since Halo Wars 2 is free of this problem.
Does anyone know whether the Steam version of the game has this problem?

The Steam version is free of this problem. So, go ahead and get it from there.
