Ps4 watch dogs stuck at installing

I just bought watch dogs from psn store.
Installed completely and played until i was about to leave the stadium.
Now it says " installing game data on the hdd" and it starts from 26% directly without moving at all no matter how long i wait.

I restarted the ps4 once and now it restarted from 27% and not moving at all.
Any ideas ???

The game was fun it's just this stupid thing that stops u when u go out of the stadium that's the buzzkiller and then more waiting. Without that i'm sure it would be real fun but this takes away from the next gen experience these kinda buzzkills. we waited long enough why this now people will never want another digital download again after this.

PS support told me to delete the game and redownload it. I did that and the game is downloading faster. I only plugged in an ethernet cable because testing internet speed gave a massive difference being wired and wireless networks even though the wireless works fine on every othet device I have.

Was very skeptical at first about deleting the game and redownloading it at first, but after taking the risk it actually worked. Started the redownload and the first minute or 2 it looked like I was getting the same speeds as the first time but then it gradually increased. Just when I was thinking about waiting until the weekend to download this game because of terrible speeds, this little tip actually worked.

I deleted entire game and started new download. Seems just as slow. My connection(cable) is 100 mbs, so its not my connection.

 

Don't seem to help at all

I dont know why but when I deleted the game and then reinstalled it, the download is going a lot faster. I did restore default settings on the ps4 after I  deleted the game and also refreshed my router, I dont if that helps.

Did Re-Downloading it actually stop that freeze? Because I am running out of the stadium, and it stops me and says "Installing Game on HDD" And it freezes at 26% So Re Installing it worked?

So reinstalling it and doing that part again will do the same freeze but take 40-45 mins the download to HDD?

yes because it has to install the whole game. But if you have gotten a significant percentage of your game installed, dont reinstall. My install was very slow at around 26% and the support chat person told me to reinstall it. My game just finished installing completely and there isnt a freeze anymore.

Same here, I was at the stadium and I tried to run out at it said 26% for it to install and it said that everytime I started a new game. And also, does it have same pop up and actually increases or can you run out and explore?

So when you attempt to run out of the stadium there is no freeze that says "Installing on HDD?"

The freezing happens until the whole game is downloaded. I reinstalled it and now the install is almost complete, at 90% right now.
