Ghost Of Tsushima (GoT) is now available and so far the reviews are overwhelmingly positive but just like any other game some players are reporting some issues. If your GoT is not launching, crashing or working and you have no idea how to fix them then this tutorial should help.
If there's indeed a progression bug that causes these problems and not allowing you to continue then I can't confirm this yet you better play it safe. Make sure that you manually save your games at regular intervals to avoid wasting time and effort. It's practical to make it a habit of manually saving GoT progress once every hour. If you run out of save slots simply overwrite the old ones as mentioned earlier.
Teething problems for new games can occur from time to time. Make sure that you keep GoT updated. To manually check for updates just go to your PS4 home screen select the game icon press the options button on the controller and select check for updates. You also need to make sure that you check for PS4 firmware update after updating games to do that. Just go to home screen setting system software update. Always make it a habit to clean your game disk before it's inserted to the PS4.
Some crashing issues are caused by hardware issues like component malfunction or overheating. If your GoT game keeps crashing and the console is getting hot then it may be overheating. Make sure that you keep the console in a cool place and away from sources of direct heat. If your console continues to overheat even when it's well ventilated, it may caused by a hardware malfunction. Contact Sony to have your console checked or repaired.
A corrupted system cache can interfere with the system and games to refresh this cache.
Here’s how to turn off your PS4: Do not enter rest mode, once the indicator light on top of your PS4 is often has stopped blinking. Unplug the power cord from the back of your console. Wait at least 30 seconds then plug the power cord back into your PS4 and turn it on. If none of the solutions help you have no other choice that to delete and reinstall the game. Keep in mind that this solution will also delete your game progress so you’ll have to play the game again.
