PS4 overheating only on DbD

SolAkiraSolAkira Member Posts: 3
My PS4 keeps overheating only when I open this game. It works like a charm on anything else but as soon as I open this game and get into a menu it overheats and cuts off. Anyone else ever had this problem or currently have this problem

    Got the same error, switching with another one: you will be logged out on PS4 due to an error (NP-34937-6)... was looking forward to play the game...

    Mine too! It’s crazy this is the only game to ever make my console fans act like this. Play anything else and minimal fan sound. Game is seriously broken

    Yeah my friend can't play either his fan kicks in. He did have the disc and switched to the digital version and that is when it started happening.

    I have the same problem. I have the disc (I already had the game before it came out for free) and the fan is running at full power. Could it be a server problem or the latest update?

    Same issue for me, all I've found from searching are other forums of the same issue. While the game was installing, once the data was at the percentage that you can start the game, I was able to get in an play the tutorial. When the game finished and I started it again, crashed at the same place as everyone else. Hopefully since PS+ has it up and more people are playing, this issue will get attention from the devs.

    Its not the game its your ps4 it could have a lot of dust on the fan or your thermal paste is going out

    hard2tumble, wouldn't it be way too coïncidental that a lot of people are having this problem ONLY with Dead by Daylight?

    Once I loaded into the games servers where you select which mode (survivor/killer) the fans quieted right down. So my fan noise is only when you press X to play.

    NO it’s the game! My PS4 has NEVER made a noise like that and after when I played rainbow6 it was silent!

    Same here can play every game there is except DbD.
    Sometimes i can play DbD when when not getting stuck loggin in because of server issues .
    The ps4 turns into a fighterjet trying to read a autosave -.- ' so yea no wonder they give this as a ps plus game. Only so you can buy a ps4 pro that doesnt run this hot on reading a simple autosave because of a bad made main menu & dont say it isnt because Cod , Fortnite , Battlefield Eso,Gta V etc. Al work fine without any overheating problems even when leaving the ps4 on all day . If the Devs care enough they will fix it otherwise rip DbD for most console players.Maby wait for a new survival game with a Dev that can create a main menu without all the animated stuff that just works on console . And have servers running longer then they are down and while your at it maby take out random reverse of the y-axis so you dont have to switch it on and off again while being chased.

    Btw losing rank for getting disconnected every game because of server issues is also a gr8 system.

    Peace!

    This is the buggiest game ever! Downloaded a few days ago, my partner can’t play on his PS4 however as it just says the PS4 has to shut down from overheating, even after downloading several times. I however was able to play for a few days on my PS4. Few issues I had, my character level reset which was annoying, and there is a lot of lag and disconnection problems with the server. I love the game itself and was quite addicted. Then I spent money on the in game currency, now later today, it won’t let me get past the loading screen and makes the PS4 fan go so loud! Convenient after I’ve spent money with them. Really angry! Ridiculous developers! Get it sorted or you’ll be giving my money back!

    I havent had overheating issues but my playstation does sound like a airplane being ready for take off sometimes when I launch the game lol

    Ok, so i might have found a fix. After i skipped the cutscene and as soon as i heard my playstation start to overheat I put it in rest mode. When i turned it back on i was able to log on without a problem.

    I'm going to need more information about this - if you get past the title screens and into a game are you still having the overheating issues, or is it just when the game starts up?
