PC, Patch 7.7.+, Windows 10 - Game just not opening

This doesn't seem to be the same issue people were having where the game would crash or get stuck with a loading icon due to newer versions of Intel CPUs or needing a dx11 parameter. for those issues, the game would open, and then crash. for me, the game just doesn't open.

the EAC splash screen thing will open, and my steam name will turn green, but once EAC finishes, the game itself doesn't open, and steam turns my name back as if I have nothing open, and my task manager also shows no instance of DBD being open at this point. there's no error code or anything, it just doesn't launch in the first place.

I suspect the issue is that the latest Unreal update has outdated my (very old) hardware because DBD isnt the only game having this issue, and if that's the case the problem probably won't be easy to replicate, nor would many other people be experiencing this specific issue, so I have no idea if it's an issue that could be patched, but I certainly cant afford to upgrade my PC right now. but if there is a possible solution, that would be a relief
