Cannot Download Marvel’s Spider-Man from Steam PC
Marvel’s Spider-Man was released initially back in 2018 as a PlayStation exclusive. And now after a long wait of almost 4 years PC users could actually play this game. Not only that they would be getting the remastered version of it as well.
The game features New York city better than any game had done before. They have improved over their previous Spider-Man games in every aspect. From web-swinging to combat everything seems so smooth and perfect. The visuals are still impressive even though the remastered version was actually released 2 years back for the PlayStation 5.
With that being said Marvel’s Spider-Man is a much-awaited game for PC users. It is obvious how annoying it might become if the game was to freeze during the download. Or if the download would not start or gets stuck for some reason. It is as if 4 years were not long enough and now you have to go through this.
Well, this is what many users had been facing since the game was downloadable. And this is why we are here to see how to easily fix this problem.
How to Fix Download problems for Marvel’s Spider-Man on Steam PC :
Well, there could be a lot of reasons why the game might not get downloaded to your drive. The point is to figure out what is going wrong. Is it a problem with the servers or is something wrong with your Steam settings? This is how we are going to narrow it down :
Important Checks :
You need to first make sure everything from your end is working fine. These are the few checks that you need to do before we dive into the main settings :
- Your internet connection should be fine.
- Check for drive space. Marvel’s Spiderman by no means is a small game. You need to have more than 75 GB of disk space on the drive where you are installing.
Since the game requires about 75 GB of disk space it would take a while for it to get allocated. Once you start the download click on the Play button and you would see a bar getting filled by small blue boxes. Just keep checking if the bar is getting filled or not. It might take around 10 to 15 minutes or even more but if you see progress do not close it.
Step 2 :
This is obviously going to be your first step. No matter what the issue with the download provided you have gone through the basic checks discussed above, you would have to restart the Steam client at least once. Then start off with the download once again and see if it works.
Step 3 :
Clearing the download Cache could fix any downloading errors. Just go to Steam > Settings > Downloads > Clear Download Cache. I would recommend clearing this at least once a week.
Step 4 :
A lot of times the link between the steam folder and the app stops working. Due to this, the app cannot allocate disk space for a certain game. Repairing the Steam library folder fixes this problem.
Steam > Settings > Downloads > Click on Steam Library Folders > Click on the 3 dots and select Repair Folder.
Step 6 :
A lot of times there could be a possibility that Steam servers in the area in which you stay are not working quite well. Probably due to technical difficulties or it could be due to a lot of people being logged in at the same time causing the servers to get overloaded.
Steam has its Servers set up in several Geographical locations all over the world. You are free to select any one of these if in case the server in your location is not functioning well or has become very slow.
Steam > Settings > Downloads > Under Download Region click on the drop-down arrow and select the region of your choice. You might have to experiment with a few regions before you find the right one.
There you go, the easiest steps that can fix any download-related issues with Marvel’s Spider-Man. Make sure you restart Steam after these steps are completed.
