Fate 2‘S long awaited Witch Queen expansion It’s finally here and players are starting to learn. Unless they’re on PS4. Thanks to a series of unique scenarios, players on Sony’s last-gen console are now queuing up to download the massive 72GB update.
Long queue time when new Fate 2 Expansion or season of coming into operation is actually a ritual at this time. The player starts the game after the server maintenance is complete, clicks to login, then waits. It can take anywhere from 10 minutes to several hours before most players can re-enter the game. However, on PS4, players have to wait in these queues today just for a chance to start download all the new content they need.
“Due to an unforeseen issue, PS4 Required Content is not yet available for download,” Bungie wrote on Twitter last night. Unlike PS5, Xbox and PC players, PS4 players cannot pre-load any of the 72 GB updates. Today after Witch Queen was officially released, they realized they still couldn’t download it until they were inside the game itself.
“UPDATE: PS4 players must log into the game to begin the rest of their Witch Queen download,” Bungie revealed shortly after the launch at 12pm EST. Some players reported that downloads started in the background while they were still queuing, while some seemed to have trouble starting downloads even after they joined.
Witch Queen will of course be just as good a couple of hours from now, though it’s always a disappointment when people plan to dip into the latest content broken only by technical hijinks. 72 GB is also not a small amount of data for players who rely on WiFi or those who live where internet connections are slower or metered.
“Apologize to my PS5 friends who will be waiting for me to arrive so we can start the campaign,” one PS4 player wrote. above Life subreddit. “I was trying to get hold of a PS5 that I actually had. On the plus side, if there are any server issues, hopefully they’ll be resolved by the time we get them a few hours later. “
Last month, Sony announced that they are buying Bungieso maybe it will have PS4 situation sorted by time Light Expansion is due around 2023.
