Checking if content is installed on PS4

If you want to find out if your content on PS4 has downloaded and is installed properly, please follow these simple steps:

Check your notifications

The notifications on the PS4 home screen should tell you if your content is downloaded. Check Notifications > Downloads.

Check your Add-Ons

If you are unsure if the additional content has been correctly installed, from the PS4 home screen, highlight the game that the content belongs to and then press down on the controller.

This will bring you to the game page. On the left, select Playstation Store.

Check the PS Store

Sometimes, content that was purchased does not download and install automatically. In those cases, the download needs to be triggered manually. To do this go to the PS Store on your console and look for the item you want to install (e.g. DLC). Once you have located the content, click the button Download.
If the button displays a price instead of a download option, the item is not detected as purchased. If the item was purchased or should be included in your season pass, please contact PlayStation Support.
PlayStation also have an article showing how to install additional content on their support site.

If the item is showing as downloaded and installed but the content is not available in-game, please perform the below console-specific troubleshooting steps:
- Restoring licenses
- Power cycle:
1- Turn off the PS4.
2- Disconnect the power cable.
3- Wait 1 minute.
4- Reconnect the power cable and restart the console.
