Update 2.0 and Phantom Liberty expansion for Cyberpunk 2077 have brought a lot of changes and upgrades to the game. While these changes and upgrades are great, not everyone is having a good time with Cyberpunkl 2077 following the update 2.0. Some PC players are unable to play the game due to Flatlined Error, crashes, and now PC users report that they are experiencing the “Corrupted or incomplete game data” error when they launch the game. In this Cuberpunk 2077 guide, I will list fixes that will help players fix the Corrupted or incomplete game data error.
Cyberpunk 2077 Corrupted Game Data Fixes You Can Try
There are multiple reasons why you are experiencing the Cyberpunk 2077 Corrupted or incomplete game data error like mods, corrupt or damaged game files, and more. The following are the fixes that will help PC users fix the Corrupted or incomplete game data error.
Verify Game Files
As I mentioned above, one reason for the Cyberpunk 2077 Corrupted or incomplete game data error is corrupt or damaged game files. Verifying the files will replace any game file that is damaged or corrupt and will fix the Corrupted or incomplete game data error. Right-click Cyberpunk 2077 in Steam Library> Properties > Installed Files > click “Verify Integrity of game files”. Steam will scan and replace any corrupt files and fix the Corrupted or incomplete game data error.
Mods pretty much fixed a lot of stuff in Cyberpunk 2077 that CDPR missed at launch, even adding new or missing features to the game. Mods are very useful but also the reason why you are experiencing Corrupted or incomplete game data error. Delete all mods that you have installed for Cyberpunk 2077 and the error will be fixed. Then install them back one by one to check which mod is causing the Corrupted or incomplete game data error.
Disable Intel Turbo Boost
Intel Turbo Boost technology allows the CPU to run at base clocks while executing or processing lighter tasks and run at the maximum clock when needed. Turns out it is a reason why Cyberpunk 2077 players are experiencing Corrupted or incomplete game data error. Disable Intel Turbo Boost from the BIOS and the error will be fixed.
- Open Windows Settings
- Go to Windows Update > Advanced Options > Recovery
- Click “Restart Now” in front of Advanced startup
- Your PC will restart and Windows will give you options when it boots.
- Go to Troubleshoot > Advanced Options > UEFI Firmware settings
- Click on Restart
- Disable Intel Turbo Boost
