First thing is to make sure your update has been installed and you've got space for the update and game.  Your game should automatically update unless you've changed your settings to manually manage them.  Click here for Steam Support's article on Managing Downloads and Updates.

If you've downloaded the update but still unable to get the game to load, it's always worth closing Steam and restarting your PC.
