[ORIGIN] Repair Game

Introduction

Sometimes game files can become corrupt or create issues. Especially after incomplete downloads/installation or game updates, problems can start occurring.

If you have issues in your game or it lags a lot, the first troubleshooting step is to repair your game. This process synchronizes the installation files with the files on the EA server and repairs faulty or missing files. This process can download data but compared to reinstalling the game, it has the advantage of not having to download the entire game again.

Steps

You need an active Internet connection. The process can take a few minutes depending on your connection. The progress is constantly shown though. If the process starts to hang, it’s best to click on Cancel or if that doesn’t work, shot down Origin and try again.

To repair your files, follow these steps:

Method 1

  1. Start Origin and login in
  2. Click on My Game Library and right click on the desired game.
  3. Click on Repair

Method 2

  1. Start Origin and login in
  2. Click on My Game Library and click on the desired game.
  3. Right-click on the cogwheel and choose Repair

Continue for both methods

  1. Wait until the process has finished and the Icons shows a green check mark.
  2. If you have any DLC for the game, that will also be repaired automatically so you might need to wait until that is done as well. The check mark will show after the Base game is done.<
