So, I loaded up the game for the first time, played through both "how to play" and now it's stuck on installing game content..... it's been almost an hour now.

Should I just wait for a while or is something seriously screwed up?

Anyone else having this problem?

Yeah I've been having the same problem. What is happening if you go to your notifications under downloads you'll see that you may only have downloaded enough data to start the application but may have not downloaded the entire file. Which will inhibit anything but practice mode.

Well, that is the "solution". I'm showing 20 of 35gb currently downloaded.

I preloaded the game "so I thought".....

Thank you for the enlightenment. Guess I should be focusing on Valentine's Day for the wife anyway. lol

Morphius218 is correct. In most games on Xbox and Playstation, you can install a portion of the game that will allow you to start playing before the full install is complete. In this case it'll probably only let you through the tutorial. Let it finish up to avoid any issues or another long download and you should be able to continue once done.

If like me, your download is complete and it still says Installing game content, select Return to start menu, it should say installation complete when you get back into the game.

Hello - have you tried exiting the Uplay client completely and restarting it? The installation will hopefully reinitialize without any problems. However if you still can't complete the download, please contact support (https://support.ubi.com/en-us/Games/4315).

Same issue. I even left my PS4 opened on the game main menu the whole night hoping that this ''invisible'' installation would be done but no success. It's like my gold edition was a demo. Great game Ubi but oh terrible launch.

Also tried reinstalling, rebooting console etc.

What platforms are you all on? Are you both on PS4?
Please open a ticket with support (https://support.ubi.com/en-us/Games/4315) and they can help you troubleshoot the reason for why the game doesn't appear to be installing properly.

Hi, I have been experiencing issues with my disc For Honor on PlayStation 4. This exact same issues has happened to me since launch i have been trying to fix it myself (I.E tutorials on YouTube) and they're not working for me. My issue is when i start to play For Honor it crashes online after one match it also crashes on the campaign when i try to play the second to last mission on the Viking campaign. Also i have been experiencing another issue when i go to install it it automatically pauses the download for no reason at all. If anyone could help me with these issues i would be very thankful.

Sorry to hear about the crashing issues! I think your best bet might be to talk with our support team. (support.ubi.com) They should be able to troubleshoot the problem and get you rolling in the right direction. :)

I would try restarting your PS4 completely (assuming you're on PS4). Also, sometimes your download finishes for a portion of the game but not all, so maybe that was it, if it still doesn't work after you restart, goto the PS4 menu and goto For Honor, hit options and goto info, there it will tell you if it's still downloading. Example: 26.8/54 GB

Yeah I've been having the same problem. What is happening if you go to your notifications under downloads you'll see that you may only have downloaded enough data to start the application but may have not downloaded the entire file. Which will inhibit anything but practice mode.

So my game won't even let me get to notifications and it says errors occurred, so I deleted it and nothing happened. My game came back to the same state and account. Then it says installing game content, and it isn't my wifi.

Make sure you have ample space on your system's hard drive. Typically this issue will come about when there's not enough room for the updates it needs to install.

This glitch has been a problem for me since a year ago. I gave up when it happened for the first time, and now trying it again it has the same problem. "Installing game content" I miss the game..... I have done everything everyone has said ( more space, restart console, make sure its fully downloaded, etc.) I have no clue what to do

The issue is an unreadable disk. Go get a new disc and it fixed the problem.
