With the newest addition to the title, AoW fans cannot wait to get their hands on the game and relive the fantasy world. This fourth installment in the popular turn-based strategy series is the highlight of the year. But what if the game never downloads? It is one of the most disappointing and off-putting experiences. A few players have reported this issue on Paradox Interactive’s official forum. So, have they fixed it yet? Let’s see.
Age of Wonders 4 Unable to Complete Download Issue: Is there any fix yet
Age of Wonders 4 players are unable to download the game, as it gets stuck at 92-98%, just a few minutes away from completing. It is assumed that this issue can be due to internet connectivity, corrupt files, or server issues. Since it is a persistent issue, players addressed it on multiple platforms and this finally caught the attention of the officials.
Players attempting to download and install the game via GoG are facing the issue more commonly. The workaround provided on the Paradox Forum advised the players to completely shut down GoG, restart it, and then initiate the download again. This workaround has apparently worked, so you can give it a try.
Check Storage Space
The recommended storage space required for the game to install on a system is around 20 GB or more. So, make sure that you have free storage space on the drive you are downloading/installing the game on. If not, consider deleting some files.
Check Internet connection
If your internet connection is not stable, this can result in downloading issues. So, ensure that you have a stable connection. You can use Ethernet instead of wireless connectivity to ensure high stability.
Add the launcher to the Antivirus exception list
Antivirus is known to protect your system but at times it gets a little too careful with everything. It is helpful to add your launcher to the exception list to complete the download. Go to Settings > Update and Security > Windows Security > Virus and Threat Protection > Manage settings > Exclusions. Under Exclusions, you can add the game’s launcher to the list. This will allow the game to download without any hindrance.
Shut down the download even if you have hope it will complete the last 2%. If it is not complete in the average download time, it is most likely stuck. Close your launcher and then restart your PC. A couple of players have tried and tested this trick and they stand by it. Restarting the system will automatically close all running applications that might be disrupting the downloading process.
If the issue persists even after the above-mentioned workarounds, we recommend submitting a ticket or raising the issue again on Paradox Forum with a descriptive query. Well, this brings us to the end of the guide, and we hope you dwell in the world of magic with ease. Make sure to check out DigiStatement for more news and updates about your favorite games!
