    Rise of the Tomb Raider only starts with DLC installed, if console is switched offline.

    If anyone is interested, we managed to find that the problem only occurs if the game is installed on an external ssd.

    If the game is moved from the ssd to the internal hdd the problem does not occur. Formating the ssd and moving the game back did not fix the problem. Other games launch fine from the external ssd.

    The problem seems to be linked to (external?) ssds and (Rise of the Tomb Raider?) DLCs.

    Will the Xbox Series X be able to use my external SSD

    This has been covered and been mentioned as it has been a big concern. Right now, yes you can use your external SSD to play Xbox One and Xbox 360 games but you will not be able to play stored SX games on the external SSD. To be able to able to play SX
    games they need to installed on the Series X's SSD not the external one.

    Can't install games on my external ssd even if I have 1TB of space left and hundreds of games already installed on it.

    I'll try if I get the same problem after installing back my games on the external SSD

    I'll let you know if anything comes up.

    Thanks for the help Esteban

    Yes but cant install xbox series x games, they have to be installed on the ssd. All others games will and can run off of external drive

    Hey Hayden.

    I have formatted my external SSD a few days ago, but before that, I tried seriously everything you recommended but to no avail.

    I could not uninstall and install back to my external SSD. Xbox would only let me install on my internal and then again would not let me move it to my external. So RE7 just stayed in the internal hdd. Same with other games.

    Like I said, things started to get tricky. Other games from years ago could install on External SSD without problems and some could not.

    I'm still downloading a ton of games like Halo, Red Dead 2, GTA and others with insane amount of GB so this will take some time...

    I'll let you know if anything new comes up :)

    Thanks again for the help Hayden.
