If you’re still experiencing this issue, please be sure to finish your current downloads, then restart the game to begin downloading the newly-packaged maps. If you see the file sizes above, these are the latest files – finish your download and the process will be complete.

If you don’t see the file sizes above with your next download, the update is likely still in the process of rolling out in your region. Our partners at PlayStation are working to resolve this as quickly as possible.
