[Guide] Downloading PS4 Games,Season pass content and DLC.

Created 16/03/2017

A few have been struggling to download or re-download DLC and Season Pass content recently on the PS4.

 

Here is what to do to find your map packs and expansion packs etc.

 

Via the game page on the PS4 scroll down to the PlayStation store tab,then scroll left to Your Add-Ons from this tab you can download your purchases.

If you want to download a full game this should be accessible to download or download again via the purchased folder of your library. Recently some have had problems with this an alternative way is to trigger a remote download via the online web or PlayStation App version of the PlayStation store,sign in click on your profile top right hand corner to reveal your download list.

The download list will contain all purchases and will allow you to trigger a remote download if your PS4 is switched on and logged in or in rest mode.

    Are you using the same account that purchased the content and what game and/or DLC are you struggling to download?

    Shameful

    going to the your add ons section does not show the season pass because it is still saying to download the pass. this is ineffective for me.

    Season passes are not downloadable they are a service item which is viewable in the services section under account management.

     

    Season passes do not always automatically add content to your account you need to add the item's to your account as and when they become available via the PlayStation store.Technically you have add the item's to your cart and "purchase" them,as long as the season pass covers these items they will check-out as free.

    i recently moved over to a ps4 from a ps3.

    i have just bought the digital version of Destiny: The Taken King for £15.99 but it isn't showing up on my ps4 nor in my library or anything. it is showing on my download list via remote PC so have added to download queue for my ps4. it is marked in that as 'playable' but still, nothing on my ps4. i had it before on my ps3 also.

     

    do you know anything about this?

    Recently i’ve bought dlc for Fallout 4, but as I try to install it, it says couldn’t find application, find it in the PS store? I have a game on disc and don’t want to pay again for digital copy.

    If the content isn't seeing the game or it's waiting to install it means the game disk doesn't match the region of your PSN account.

     

    The PS4 is region free and can play game disks from around the world, however DLC is region locked and must match the account and disk regions.

    Check in your library under "purchased" go to Fallout 4 and see what add-ons are there

    Go to the PS Store on your PC or mobile and initiate download from there

    On your PS4 go to settings>account management>restore licenses, and restore the licenses

    Thank you very much for your reply i had a thought and deleted a game which freed up loads more space even thou i had over 20gb of space and low and behold they worked i can only think that the system retains a certain amout of space for saves and updates or what ever.

    Thanks again. 😉?

    Ok cool, thanks for letting me know :)

     

    Downloads require twice as much free space as the download itself, so a 10GB download needs at least 20GB of space, 10GB for the download, 10GB reserved for the install, ends up at 10GB when finished.

    Also when the PS4's storage gets below 50GB, it starts playing up. For whatever reason it doesn't like it
