    Absolutely not . Xbox and pc players will all be missing out even though some of them have had issues as well . It is also worth noting that only some PlayStation players have had issues , so it wouldn’t be fair for everyone to get free dlc

    Voted no as I think a totally free DLC is too much. A 5 of 10% discount for a future dlc would be more suitable imo

    Not going to happen. They won't even say sorry by saying sorry.

    I can’t play anything at the moment as none of my routes work but I still don’t think I deserve anything for it. I don’t even blame DTG.

    If they fix it next week then I’ll be happy. I just really wanted to play the NEC.

    Can't see that working out. If they offered free DLC it would likely be a specific item, in which case they'd end up ticking off everyone who already bought it.

    You can do that right now, you know that right? Just delete your game with all add-ons and re-install the basegame but no DLC's. Then buy and download NEC. As said numerous times on the forums, that will work.

    Giving a free DLC to say sorry about that we have to wait 3 or 4 days to play TSW is nuts. Maybe an small discount or an unlocking something in the mastery is good enough.

    Hard to see what they can do right now without causing more controversy somewhere.

    The game breaking into tiny pieces on the same day Rush Hour went live sounds pretty harmful to me.

    Now that's an interesting view point. Depends how they phrase it "we at DTG are giving away a dlc for free to celebrate the core update" - legally no harm no foul ... maybe... let's see, poll lot closer than i thought, sneaky xbox, ps5 and pc users having a little chuckle.

    I'm politely declining to vote but I will say why.
    Whilst I think your suggestion has merit and is most certainly valid in the circumstances, hell they're sitting on my season pass money at the moment, it's unworkable in practice.
    Take just one example of say someone who has all the DLC, how are they to be compensated?
    DTG though, best get your thinking caps on, it's going to take something to regain any form of dignity and respect in this forum. Well certainly from me.

    Thank you Gilly. I respect your decision not to vote. I did not consider the full dlc as this cant be more thAn 5 per cent of user base or maybe less? However I am with you Gilly, DTG circling the drain here, let's see how the vote goes, roll on 90%

    DTG going into melt down mode, a thread closed within 60 seconds there just to save face. In fairness the OP had asked for it but it was like an eagle in bound once requested (see thread marked closed)

    Appreciate it, thanks from me to.
    Perhaps its time for something new though, but I won't suggest anything here as I'm not ruining your poll, and ultimately that again is DTG's job!!

    I'll say no on the basis that all PS4 players want is to be able to play the dang game again. To have it fixed as soon as possible with assurances that something this disastrous doesn't happen again (I know updates don't always work 100% but to have things be unplayable is what I'm talking about, here) would be fine by me.

    An article apologising to all players who have been affected by the issue would be common courtesy, imo.

    Free LoCo at Christmas would be lovely!!!

    the handling of this update has been shoddy and many left in the dark. So many posts reporting the same thing :cool:

    the communication for next gen was weak as hell without even giving a date till the last minute.

    the deployment was dreadful, they should have said there will be some downtime.
    For example, Don’t download any new DLC and put a pause in the store while that part was updating… then release the core update.

    the updates with WRONG (yeah caps) info was painful and near useless, well it was useless.

    “download the dlc again” when it’s already installed and therefor you WONT (yeah caps again) give you the option to follow the only advice given.

    little late but the most recent announcement/ suggestion which I think all PS4 folk will need to do, reinstall. But not x y and z while they are the last to be updated. Helpful knowing they know what remains to update on the store.

    so yeah free LoCo for all, not just PS4 users at the end of the year would be a lovely treat to make up for this shambles.

    Do we know for sure this is a DTG issue or a Sony issue. Failing to see what content you have already purchased and asking you to pay again is a PSN issue as it’s not seeing your library properly.

    I think it's a DTG issue, honestly. It's an issue with your add-ons not being recognised by the newly updated version of the game (or some variation of this).

    Technically, the DTG issue creates a knock-on Sony issue where players can actually buy DLC's twice as...technical reasons. I think that knock-on issue is to do with Sony having the updated DLCs on the store but it doesn't recognise your purchased DLCs as valid or something so it lets you buy them again.

    All this to say no one knows the technicalities, but I'm fairly sure this is primarily a DTG issue.

    There does seem to be good news as there's another update (currently copying on my PS4...whatever that means). Hopefully this is a patch.

    I wouldn't pin any blame on Sony since DTG released the update, assuming it would work fine. That's not the case, sadly. How they didn't discover this problem before release is beyond me.

    No, because it is not DTG fault. Sony needs to do an update that TSW2 had and did not make it go live. There is an update now so let’s pray everything is normal

    Sorry to say, but I think you're mistaken. DTG made the update and chose to allow Sony to release it. Sony are not really responsible for what DTG gives them to make public.

    Bottom line, DTG should have tested and fixed the issues before it was let out the door.

    Pressing options whilst hovering over the game gives you a menu. Check For Update is what you want to click. But as seen here, it doesn't seem to have fixed anything?
    Maybe the game no longer crashes, but the DLC issue is still present.

    This is a serious issue, and DTG understands that it must be fixed immediately, so it will be fixed. There is no need for PS4 players to get a code for a free dlc of their choice.

    This new update doesn't seem to fix anything, though. But yeah, I think it will show up just fine. Unless it's already installing it with your download? I'm no tech expert.

    Well, there will be further DLCs in future I think (Class 313, Brighton Mainline, etc.). Maybe there would be a voucher IF DTG were to decide to go this route. Personally, I don't think it is going to happen and I have to say it would be quite unusual. Had some issues with Apple, Microsoft, etc. but never got a freebie.

    I'm in favour of a discount like this. A one-time discount on anything that stays there until you decide to use it would be nice.
