    Well I'm not one for doing this sort of stuff. But my god this has one big diaster. I've dowoaded the core update and my game is now completely unusable including the new American DLC. Its nothing more then a dogs breakfast.

    Rant over.

    Regards,
    Nathan Kemp.

    Make sure you re-download all your past-purchased DLC. I'm operating on a PS5 with both versions. In regards to the PS4 version, core update is done, but whenever I loaded a DLC route it crashed. I currently have all the PS4 dlc I brought downloading again, hoping it will fix it.

    I'm also on PS5 with both versions but I can't update all the DLCs on the PS4 version, nor can I remove them and re-download them.

    Really? When I switch to my PS4 version they are all ready waiting installation, I'll try and grab some photos as grainy as they maybe in the 4am night light ....

    PS4 version also seems entirely broken for me. Nearly all the DLC I’ve purchased is not recognized by the game anymore, and dowloading all add-ons again didn’t help. Finally, selecting one of the routes that actually do show up resulted in a crash to desktop. At least I’m not surprised anymore.

    And GWE doesn't want to play ball at all on PS5. It just won't download (as discussed in other threads). All the other DLC I own downloaded fine. Might have got error messages at first but clicking it again made it work.

    Guys, be aware that the updates are being staggered. What was just updated right now was the core, and bringing the UE version to 4.26.
    The route updates will be available later today, this might be the reason why they're not showing up in the main menu.
    I'm not sure why DTG didn't make this clearer

    It's not just routes not showing up though. Even the base routes (SKA, BKL and SPG) which show in the menu are unplayable and cause crashes.

    That's odd. I can confirm that I'm on a PS4 Slim, and I have been able to play on ECW and SKA so far without any crashes. It seems to stutter a bit more, but I'm not 100% certain about that.

    It’s the same for all of us. Once dovetail wake up, they are going to be faced with an entire protest (metaphorically)

    Hopefully it will be sorted soon . I installed the update on PS4 and got this . I’m assuming the rest of the updates will appear later , as mentioned elsewhere on here

    Did you have to pay for everything? Or did you just uninstall and reinstall

    An update for the PS4 DLC is coming later today. Don’t panic and don’t buy anything you’ve already bought.

    Hi folks. We posted a thread here about how the rollout process would happen.

    There is an update due later today which will enable the remastered preserved routes (this is for non-US players). In the meantime, please do not repurchase any add-ons you already own.

    I'll update this thread when it's live.

    I've passed on the GWE issue on PS5 and we'll investigate.

    We're hoping a matter of hours - this is something manual that needs to be pushed from Sony's EU team during working hours, so I can't give a time I'm afraid other than to update you when it's live. Thank you for being patient though!

    Hi DTG JD
    Following your instructions, I deleted my digital copy in preparation for a fresh installation.
    Now the PS store won't let me download it as it says I already own it?
    Help!

    I'm pretty sure they didn't look at sand patch either. As the amount of bugs in that route is surprisingly shocking

    Go to you library, check in purchased. From there you'll be able to download it again. It's likely not working when you do but good luck.

    I’ve been very sympathetic of DTG since the update and understanding, but they really need to have more communication with their customers even if it’s only to say they are still working on it with Sony .
    A Tweet appeared on Twitter (obvs) advertising Rush Hour a couple of hours ago, no doubt it was scheduled but someone should be on hand to reply to the comments and questions on there and not just pretend that nothing is going wrong

    Its beyond a joke now. The last message from them was 7.55? yesterday and was a total lie. Sony hasent "rolled out the update" at all.

    Did they hire Shaun Murray? Because the levels of silence and lies are certainly on point with Launch No mans Sky.

    PS4 version is still unplayable on the PS5.
    I might uninstall it and reinstall it later, make a fresh start.

    I think what has upset me the most besides the complete§ disaster on the PS4, is they streamed last night the Boston Sprinter. It was like a slap in the face.

    So the game is broken then for PS4 users, I thought you said on the livestream that the update delay on Tuesday would make for a smoother transition on Thursday. Any chance of a refund?

    I'm on PS5 wirh the PS4 version. I can switch between them, although only the PS4 version can be launched. The PS5 version keeps redirecting me to several PS Store pages like Standard, Deluxe or Collectors Edition.

    And the PS4 version isn't playable at all. Although I've reinstalled all DLCs now, I can't start any route. Even the standard routes like Sand Patch or Köln-Aachen don't work. My PS5 keeps crashing all the time.

    What a huge disappointment... I'm lost for words.

    That's strange Gigi88.
    I'm on PS5 and have had no issues upgrading.
    In the PS store (not the game hub) do a manual search for the game. One of the ones which comes up will be the PS5 version. You can download the standard edition for free but you will also keep the routes that came with TSW2 collectors edition (these will be marked free under the DLC page).
    I'm running the PS5 version right now and all my DLCs are there and playable. GWE is now also downloadable without any error messages.

    As for the PS4 version, I gave up trying to play that after so many crashes yesterday.

    After uninstalling everything and reinstalling everything again, at least the PS4 version is running fine. But no chance for the PS5 version. I do find it in the store, but it keeps telling me to purchase it. I may have missed this info, but is the PS5 upgrade really for free? I own the PS4 Disc version.

    However, I am able to play it now again and just encountered the next joke. How can I exit a route? The menu has been redesigned. All right, got it, we gotta get used to the new style. But I absolutely don't find an option to exit the route. Also, how to access the scenarios or timetables for a route? I may not be a TSW2 pro, but I really enjoyed the experience so far. But this... this doesn't feel user-friendly to me any longer

    Honestly, as excited as I was to play the new DLC, I just decided to give the game a week off while I wait for my new PS5 to be delivered. Hopefully by then, the issues are fixed and I'll start off fresh on a better platform. Why bang my head against the wall and keep trying to play this on an outdated PS4?
