    If you've redeemed bonus content and cannot find your content in game, please try the following steps:

    • Enter the code.
    • Once the code has been entered correctly, select Continue in the dialog box.

    2. If the items are missing in game, please check if they need to be downloaded and installed manually. To check this on PS4:

    • This will bring you to the game page. On the left, select Playstation Store
    • The window on the right will show you your add-ons. Select Your Add-Ons and press X to see a complete list.
    • Check if the content you are looking for appears here and is marked as installed.

    3. Power cycle your PS4
    • Turn off the PS4.
    • Disconnect the power cable.
    • Wait 1 minute.
    • Reconnect the power cable and restart the console.

    Connection Troubleshooting

    If you are having issues with your connection to Watch Dogs Legion, please try the following troubleshooting steps.

    1. Reset your network hardware
    Resetting your network hardware allows it to re-establish a fresh connection to your ISP. To do this:
    • Shut down all computers/consoles connected to your modem and/or router.
    • Power down and unplug the modem and/or router.
    • Wait 60 seconds.
    • Plug in and turn on the modem and/or router
    This will power cycle your modem or router.

    2. Rebuild your PS4's database
    • Turn off the PS4.
    • Once the PS4 is off, press and hold the power button until the PS4 beeps twice (this may take up to 10 seconds).
    • Connect the DualShock controller with a USB cable.
    • Once connected, press the PS button on the controller. You should now see the Safe Mode options on the PS4.
    • Select option "5. Rebuild Database" and press X.
    • "The database will be rebuilt, it might take a few hours to rebuild the database" will show on the screen, press "OK".
    • Allow the database to rebuild. Afterwards the console will return to the sign-in screen.


    3. Enable UPnP
    Some players have reported that enabling UPnP helped them to fix their issue. UPnP stands for Universal Plug and Play and allows applications to automatically forward ports. Due to the amount of different routers, we cannot provide exact steps and recommend you consult your routers manual or your ISP.

    4. Port Forwarding
    Port forwarding makes sure that the router's firewall does not interfere with the game's connection. For more information, please check out this FAQ. If you forward ports, you will also want to set up a static IP for your PS4. Instructions on this can be found here.
    The ports needed for Watch Dogs Legion are:
    TCP: 80, 443, 9003

    5. Place the console into the DMZ
    Please follow the instructions on this FAQ. Please be aware that your PS4 will not be protected by your router's security measures in the DMZ. If you have concerns about the security of the network you are on, we recommend that you do not apply this troubleshooting step.

    6. External restrictions
    There may be restrictions set by your ISP or network administrator. Some examples of where this may be an issue include a university campus, a military base, or shared housing. If you believe this you are affected by this, please contact your ISP or network administrator.

    If you are still experiencing connection issues after completing these steps, please create a ticket with a screenshot of your forwarded ports. Please do not post your ports on the forums for security purposes. If you create a forum post, please include your ticket number.

    If you are experiencing crashes, performance issues, or any other issues on Watch Dogs Legion, please try the following steps:

    1. Make sure your system is up to date
    To do this, connect your console to the internet and check if any updates are available. Please refer to this official Sony article.

    2. Power cycle your PS4
    Try power cycling your PS4 as a first step.
    • Turn off the PS4.
    • Disconnect the power cable.
    • Wait 1 minute.
    • Reconnect the power cable and restart the console.

    3. Rebuild your PS4's database
    Rebuilding your database is similar to a computer disk defragmenter and will not affect your save data.
    • Turn off the PS4.
    • Once the PS4 is off, press and hold the power button until the PS4 beeps twice (this may take up to 10 seconds).
    • Connect the DualShock controller with a USB cable.

    • Select option "5. Rebuild Database" and press X.

    • Allow the database to rebuild. Afterwards the console will return to the sign-in screen.

    4. Restoring Licenses
    If you bought the game digitally or redeemed it via the PlayStation Store, try restoring licenses . This ensures that any content on your console matches your account's privileges.
    • On the PlayStation Dashboard, select Settings
    • Select Playstation Network/Account Management
    • Choose the option to Restore Licenses
    • Select Restore

    5. Reinstalling the game files

    If the game is visible on the PlayStation home screen:
    • Hover over the game tile.
    • Press the Options button.
    • Select Delete.
    You can also complete this, by following these steps:
    • Scroll to the right to locate the Library.
    • Hover over the game tile.
    • Press the Options button.
    • Select Delete.
    Please note, this will not affect your save data.
