The highly anticipated squeal to 2016’s DOOM is finally out and fans everywhere are rejoicing. DOOM Eternal marks the fifth entry into the long-running franchise, which dates back to 1993. However, the excitement surrounding this new squeal is being spoiled for some thanks to a pesky bug. Specifically, some PS4 players who have recently downloaded the game are experiencing the DOOM Eternal content still pending install error. In this guide, we will show you how to fix the bug that’s keeping you from playing!
How to Fix the DOOM Eternal Content Still Pending PS4 Bug
The DOOM Eternal content still pending install error is nothing new to long time players, as it was a problem in the 2016 title. In most cases, the error seems to occur when players try to launch the game while it is still downloading. So if you tried to play before the download finished and are receiving the install error message, that’s likely your problem.
To fix the content still pending error on a PS4, delete the game from your PlayStation library and then restart the download. This time around, let the game download fully before you launch it, and you shouldn’t encounter the error. If you relaunch it before it’s finished, you’ll likely run into the error once again.
Additionally, be sure that there are no issues with your internet connection so that download can do its job without interruption. If you’ve done all of this and are still encountering issues, we suggest restarting your system before you try to reinstall it.
After following the steps above, you should be on your way back to ripping and tearing through hell. Hopefully, this is something that can be fixed soon by developers, but since it was a problem four years ago, don’t hold your breath. However, only time will tell.
