Bugs in video games can be pretty irritating, especially when they completely stop you from progressing. There is such a bug in Batman Arkham Knight for the PS4 and I encountered it. Here’s how I fixed it and returned to cleaning the streets of Gotham in no time.
When I first sat down to play Arkham Knight, I got through about 30-45 minutes until a screen popped up that inicated that I need to let the game install more. I knew that the game’s size was beyond huge (at over 50GB), so this didn’t trouble me. I walked away and waited for the game to do its thing.
The problem occurred when I returned about 15 minutes later to see that the progress bar and percentage did not move at all (the timer was still at around 11 minutes and the percent was still at 0%).
I jumped online to see if there was a solution, but the most I could get in terms of an answer was to detele my DLC and reinstall it, or renew the licenses for the game’s DLC.
This didn’t seem right when focusing on my issue, so I decided to try rebooting the system. I didn’t simply hit reset though, I made sure to completely shut off the PS4 and then start it back up.
I brought Arkham Knight back up and then went to extras to see if that had worked. I was greeted with a flood of achievements that I missed and other notifications and then all of a sudden the timer popped back up, but this time it was actually moving, and indicated it was at 50%.
I jumped into the game and everything was back to normal, I was back to knocking thugs out and chasing Gotham’s most notorious from place to place.
I know this is a simple fix, hell I’m not claiming it to be a scientific breakthrough from myself, but I wanted to get this out there for those of you who are having the same trouble.
The game is still new, so we may see a patch come in the future, but with the mess that Arkham City has been in, I think my fix should help some people.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask, I will help to the best of my ability.
