We have checked and considered the causes of this problem and come to the conclusion that in most cases, the error occurs due to the download speed on Steam. Yes, it may sound weird, but by changing the download speed, we were able to install the game without any problems. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Open the game platform and click the Steam tab in the upper left.
  2. In the drop-down menu, find Settings and go there.
  3. Now, among the list on the left, find the Downloads tab to find the option you need.
  4. On the right side of the tab, you will notice an option called “Limit bandwith to”, which is where you can change the speed of your download to the required amount.

Note that you’ll need to specify the download speed in kilobytes, so calculate everything correctly, so you don’t set it too low. We recommend reducing the speed by 10-30% so that this setting doesn’t affect the loading time too much, but also fixes the error. In this case, if your download speed was 35 megabytes per second, then the value in kilobytes should be between 24500 and 31500.
