How to Fix FIFA 23 Download Failed Error
There could be many reasons why a game may fail to download. It primarily occurs because of an unstable internet connection. Sometimes, the servers get super busy which can lead to download failure. There could be some software bug too or a storage issue. Let’s now look at the solutions you’ve been waiting for.
1. Check Your Internet Connection
Even when your device is connected to the internet, if the device isn’t getting a stable connection, the download may fail. You need to make sure that the internet connection is fast and stable and then start downloading FIFA 23 again.
Most internet-related issues such as slow speed or unstable connection can be fixed by rebooting the router. To do this, open the router’s setting page and click the Reboot option. A simple approach is to unplug the cable from the wall outlet and then plug it back after 2-3 minutes.
2. Enable Safe Mode Download in Origin
Sometimes files get corrupted or become missing while downloading a game on Origin. To prevent this, we have a Safe mode downloading feature. Enable it and then download the game again.
Here’s how to enable Safe Mode download in Origin:
- Search for the Origin client. Right-click on it and select Run as administrator.
- Click the Origin button on the top-left side.
- Go to the Application settings.
- From the top menu, select Diagnostics.
- Enable Safe mode downloading.
Once done, try downloading FIFA 23 again. I hope you won’t face the download failed error message again.
3. Restart the Device
A software bug or minor system glitches can also lead to download failure. It can also occur due to some bad processes running in the background. Restarting the device can fix it as it forcibly closes all the apps and essential processes are added into the memory thereafter. You should therefore restart the device and check if the problem is fixed by downloading FIFA 23 again.
4. Try After Sometime
If a large number of users are active on the game, the servers may be busy. In such a case, the download may fail. The game can also be under maintenance, during which some of its functionalities become inaccessible. One of the situations could be playing out while you were downloading FIFA 23. I would recommend avoiding the busy time (usually 11 am to 9 pm). Try downloading the game after a few hours.
