Figured I'd post this up as this has just taken me over an hour to sort out. There can be issues when trying to run this game at full screen 1080p and your display may just go black.
At the moment the only solution seems to be running the game in a lower resolution and in windowed mode. I had to swap back to a VGA cable just to get into the game settings though so if you're running over DVI or HDMI you may want to try this if you have a VGA cable lying around.
Hope this helps any duders having issues :)
