Many people have reported that the game crashes to desktop as soon as they hit the play button in the Steam clients. Others have also mentioned that the game crashes right after meeting Harvey Dent and then the game shows white screen and stops working.
As a temporary solution, you could try to turn off Steam Overlay. To do that, click on Steam > Settings > In-Game Settings tab.
