    Can't download episode 5 on XB1

    Hi, sorry if something has been posted about my problem with episode 5, but I haven't been able to find anything on the matter...

    I have the game for Xbox One.

    I have all four episodes that I have downloaded no problems, but when I try to download episode 5 it always stops installation at 35% and tells me to install.

    I've tried deleting 5 and then reinstalling, same problem, even deleted everything from my console and still having issues with episode 5 stopping at 35%..

    Any help would be greatly appreciated as I would like to finish the game...

    Many thanks...

    Hello,

    I've seen a few users with this problem. I'd love to get some info from you so I can get the team figuring out a fix:

    - Are you connected via wifi or cable?
    - If you hard reset your console and re-attempt the download does it get past 35%?

    Many thanks

    Hey Scott,

    Thanks for the reply, to answer your questions:

    Yes I have cable connected to the console.
    Yes I have done a hard reset and the download still stops at 35% and tells me to install..

    Hopefully there will be a fix soon and I do appreciate your efforts.

    Many thanks..

    Thanks

    Also just to further your investigation into the problem I did buy the season pass when it was up on the marketplace at the time when the game was up.

    I'm having same issue. Deleted & re-downloaded 3 times. Hard reset. Moved game from portable HD to system. Nothing. Gets to 35% then says game has stopped DL'ing. Been waiting so long. Now I'm giving up
    I downloaded ep 1 first (it may have been free or v cheap), then I bought season pass.
    Download is EXTREMELY slow. So thought maybe a timeout issue. But I've downloaded 50gig B4, never thought 4gig would be such a task.

    Ok, I worked out the problem, my ISP here in Australia had changed something with their CDN and it's not allowing myself or others to download new games/updates etc... on the xbox one console.

    So after a bit of research on my side I manged to changed my DNS settings on the console to OpenDNS instead of the preferred settings my ISP chooses and it has managed to get past the 35% and its fully downloaded and ready to play..

    So after all this, it wasn't a issues with the game itself rather and ISP issue which I hope they get to fix it ASAP.

    Yes. In Melbourne. I have no idea what ur fix means. Will have to have a look on my XB1 settings & see if can follow ur steps.
    Thanks for the info. Legs crossed it works!

    Thank you so much Zbau73 and Square Enix team. I'm now downloading (@ 62%)
    Zbau73, after my last reply you got me thinking about the ISP & DNS mumbo jumbo & I figured I one more last ditch effort could save me from changing settings I'm not very comfortable messing around with.
    Since I'm currently house sitting, I was DL to my brothers console (logged in as me of course) so. I came home to try it on my XBONE & BOOM! DL surpassed 35% in 10 mins (my ISP is so much faster)
    So thanks to all who provided this dumbass with ur helpful tips. I didn't quite get to the stage of using said tips. But if my home DL didn't work, I would have needed them for sure.
    I can't wait to see the ending now. Xxx
