As a possible resolution, Sloclap (the builders behind Sifu), suggests restarting your console and launching the sport out of your library. If youre on a PS5, you too can attempt going to Settings > Users and Accounts > Other > Restore Licenses, after which hitting Restore to start the restoration course of. (We have PS4, head to Settings > Account Management > Restore Licenses.)
It does not seem to be these options are working for everybody, sadly. If its nonetheless not working for you, Sifus developers ask that you just DM them together with your PlayStation Network ID, together with the area and whether or not youre utilizing a PS5 or PS4. Sloclap says it’ll relay this data to PlayStation engineers who’re monitoring the issue. Some customers additionally recommend downloading a sport that you just at the moment dont have out of your PS Plus assortment after which attempting to put in Sifu.
Problems arose when the sport was set to go reside Sunday morning at 7AM ET. Users rapidly seen that the video games countdown timer on the PlayStation Store which shouldve ticked right down to 00:00:00 this morning was caught a number of days sooner or later, barring players who preordered the sport from downloading it.
ace TheGamer factors out, it may need one thing to do with the PlayStation Stores inside release date for the sport. While some users report seeing a release date set in April, others noticed it set in late February, doubtlessly as a consequence of an error with date formatting. In any case, we nonetheless dont actually know what went mistaken. The Verge reached out to Sony and Sloclap with a request for remark however didnt instantly hear again.
I’ve to say, Sloclap has been on high of the problem from the very starting, which is much more spectacular contemplating the problem appears to be on Sonys finish (the video games early access release went easily on the Epic Games Store). Soclap is additionally providing a free in-game present as a form of comfort prize, however that in all probability doesnt make up for an entire day wasted of not having the ability to play the sport a day early.
