Art Of Rally For Xbox: How To Fix 'Press Any Button To Start' Issue

Hooray! Art of Rally is finally available on Xbox Game Pass. The only catch? It's not working properly.

As you're probably well aware, the game is suffering from an issue at launch on Xbox where the "press any button to start" screen forces you to continually sign-in on a loop, which means the game actually won't start.

Fortunately, there are a couple of potential ways around this, so here's what you need to do:

How To Fix Sign-In Issues With Art Of Rally On Xbox Game Pass

Before you do anything, we suggest closing the game manually by pressing the Xbox Guide button on your controller, hovering over the Art of Rally tile and then pressing the Menu button followed by 'Quit'.

Then, you'll need to abide by the following instructions to restart your console:

  1. Go to 'Settings'
  2. Select 'Power mode & start-up'
  3. Choose 'Restart now'

Alternatively, if that doesn't work, you can perform a full reset with the following instructions:

  1. Go to 'Settings'
  2. Select 'Power mode & start-up'
  3. Choose 'Full shut-down'
  4. Turn your console on manually again

Once you've completed these steps, you should find that Art of Rally signs in as expected and you can play the game. Unfortunately, not everyone is having 100% success with this method, but it's the only workaround we have for now.

There is another issue players are experiencing with Art of Rally on Xbox as well, where if your console isn't set to the English language, everything seems to be displaying in Japanese (and there's no separate language option).

At the time of writing, there's been no word on a permanent fix for either of these issues as of yet, but we're assuming a patch will be rolled out in the near future. Nevertheless, it's a frustrating start for Art of Rally's devs and players on Xbox.
