Some Playstation 4 users see an “Incomplete Game Installation” option. Failed to load saved data while loading Bloodborne or loading saved data disc, unable to load. Most of the time, this problem occurs when users are using the disc version of Bloodborne (GOTY Edition).
Update the game from the control panel
It turns out that the problem is most likely due to the game not working in the latest version available, or the latest game update is still installing in the background.
Also, there is an issue with the Disc GOTY version where the game update is not shown when installing the update.
Once you’ve got your console to check for the latest version, take an hour off and leave your Playstation in sleep mode. This is important because Bloodborne can still install the update even if you don’t see the PS4 dashboard.
There is no official confirmation as to why this is happening for the Bloodborne Game of the Year Edition CD. People think it’s just bad code from From Software.
Uninstall and reinstall Bloodborne
- First, Bloodborne is completely decrystallized
- Insert the CD to start a new installation process
- Download and install the patch
- Now start the game
Tip: Don’t start a new Bloodborne game until you’ve downloaded and installed the patch.
Turn your console off and on again
To turn your PlayStation 4 off and on again:
- Hold down the [PS] button on your controller.
- Turn off your PS4 using Power Off PS4 instead of Activate Sleep.
- Make sure the console light is off, unplug the power cord and wait 10 seconds.
- Connect the power cord and turn on the console again by pressing the [PS] button on the controller.
Create a new character
If none of the above methods helped you, and you see the message “Game installation not completed”. Error saving recorded data. Unable to load when trying to load a recorded game. There is one more solution you can try.
In the end, you can get around the bug entirely by creating a new character in Bloodborne, going through the first cutscene and then heading to the first bonfire. After lighting the first bonfire, return to the main menu via the options screen and reload a previously saved game that was previously unsuccessful.
If you are still having problems, you should contact PlayStation Support for further troubleshooting. You can also check out any fixes or updates on our official forums.
