Solution 4: Enable Automatic Game Updates on PS5

It’s possible that you might have missed the new update notification of Remnant 2 and an older version of the game can be causing these issues.

To avoid such situations and besides updating each game manually, we can set PS5 to update games automatically.

Usually, they are set to automatic updates by default to avoid coop not working.

Here are 8 steps you can follow to allow automatic game updates on PS5:

  1. From the PS5 Homepage, go to the gear icon located in the top right corner to access PS5 settings.settings ps5
  2. Select System
    system ps5
  3. In the System window, select Power Saving from the left sidebar and choose Features Available in Rest Mode from the expanded menu at the right.
    In the System window, Power Saving is in the left sidebar and Features Available in Rest Mode are in the expanded menu at the right.
  4. Toggle “Stay Connected to the Internet
    Stay Connected to the Internet is toggled in PS5 rest mode settings menu to enable automatic updates of Remnant 2

Halfway through, we have enabled PS5 to stay connected to the internet while in rest mode as games usually don’t update when the PS5 is actively being used. So, let’s enable automatic game updates.

  1. Go back to the main settings menu that you opened from the gear icon.
  2. Scroll down and select “Saved Data and Game/App Settings
  3. In the Saved Data and Game/App Settings window, select Automatic Updates from the left sidebar
  4. Toggle both the “Auto-Download” and “Auto-Install in Rest Mode” options in the expanded menu at the right.
    In the Saved Data and Game/App Settings window, select Automatic Updates from the left sidebar to enable automatic game updates to avoid Multiplayer issues

Now, your PS5 will be able to download updates over your internet whenever they would be available. Even if your PS5 is in rest mode, your Remnant 2 will remain up-to-date.

Solution 5: Remove Old Problematic DLC

Ditching old DLC content can free up space and refresh your game, making coop not working a thing of the past! Here is how to clear Remnant 2’s DLC on a PlayStation 5:

  1. Select Remnant 2.
  2. Press the Options button on your controller.
  3. Select Manage Game Content.
    manage game content on ps5
  4. Look for any content with labels such as “Unknown content” or similar text, as this may be the problematic DLC.
  5. Delete the problematic DLC.
  6. Try re-downloading the content to see if the issue has been resolved.

Following these steps may help resolve issues with DLC and allow for the successful downloading of updates on the console.

Solution 6: Wait for the Official Release of Additional Content

If the suggested methods did not work for you, the best course of action is to wait for the official release of the additional content on the PlayStation Store, which will provide full support for the game.

Solution 7: Disable VPN

One potential culprit behind these annoyances could be the VPN set up on your router. You might have enabled VPN on your router to Bypass geo-blocks and get access to international game servers and DLCs.

But by redirecting your internet traffic, VPNs can sometimes introduce latency, especially if they’re routing through distant or congested servers. If you’re experiencing significant lag or stuttering on your PS5, consider disabling your router’s VPN as a troubleshooting step.

Solution 8: Reset PS5

This is the final resort that you can take before you contact PlayStation and you have tried all other fixes to play Remnant 2. Being a PlayStation Plus member would make this easy for you as you would be able to save all your game’s progress which is really necessary for the hours of work that have been put in.

Resetting PS5 will completely wipe off everything from the console whether it’s a game, save data, or any other content.
So its best to backup data first on your cloud storage and here’s how you can do it:

  1. Go to Settings and then select Saved Data and Game/App Settings.
    Saved Data and Game:App Settings page on PS5 main settings page
  2. Now choose the type of data you want to backup:
    • PS5 Data:
      Select Saved Data (PS5) > Console Storage and in the next Screen Upload to Cloud Storage
      Saved Data and Game:App Settings Saved data for PS5 console storage to delete Remnant 2
    • PS4 Data
      Select Saved Data (PS4) > Console Storage and in the next Screen Upload to Cloud Storage
      upload saved data to playstation plus
  3. And PS5 will upload your saved game data.

After backing up your data, now you can Reset your PS5:

  1. Go to Settings
  2. Then go to System
  3. Select System Software from the left menu and Reset Options (the last item in the expanded menu)
    ps5 system software reset options
  4. Select Reset Your Console and follow the on-screen instructions. Wait until PS5 will restart and you are directed to the setup process.
