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.

Instructions

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, shut down EA App and try again.

Start EA app and log in

Click on My Collection

Click on the three dots on the desired game or click on the game and choose Manage.

Click on Repair

Wait until the process has finished and the Download Manager shows as completed with a check mark.

If you have any DLC for the game, that will also be repaired automatically.

Make sure to wait until everything is completed in the Download manager before starting the game.
