Cyberpunk 2077 is now available worldwide, and millions of players are looking to try out the most hype game of the year as soon as possible. Unfortunately, your download may be going extremely slow, which is causing a lot of frustration for many players. There are some things you can do to make it go a bit faster. Here’s how to fix Cyberpunk 2077 downloading slow on Steam.
How to fix Cyberpunk 2077 downloading slow in Steam
To fix Cyberpunk 2077 downloading slow on Steam, try the following solution:
- Click Steam from the menu and go to Settings
- In the settings tab, go to Downloads
- Under the Download Region, change to Japan
- Restart your Steam and check the speed
The slow download speeds will vary by region depending on the number of people connecting to them. For example, United States servers are extremely congested around the 7:00 to 8:00 PM EST release time. Consider switching off of that region if you are experiencing slower than average download speeds.
If you try this solution and continue experiencing slow download speed, you can try a few other regions. Make sure to restart Steam after each region switch. If downloads continue at slow speeds, you can try to restart Steam completely and pause, then resume the download. The rates might be slow for the remainder of the day until server traffic settles down a bit.
