Sorry to see that you are having issues @KOR_ChiefEditor.

Can I ask you to ensure that the ports for Origin are open on your router: 


  • TCP: 80; 443; 9960-9969; 1024-1124; 3216; 18000; 18120; 18060; 27900; 28910; 29900
  • UDP: 1024-1124; 18000; 29900

Once done, try the download again and see what happens.


Let me know how you get on.

Check your drive space where the game is installed and the temp location for where downloads go + windows temp files.


Also do a scan of the drives related locations could have an issue.

How the hell do I change that ? My download speeds are stuck at 24 kb/s max whilst my internet download speed is around 40 MB/s. My game downloads for 3-4 days whilst I can watch 4K 60 fps videos on YT without any issues. WTF ???

Best thing for it @NedaGarib is taking a couple of minutes and trying the following steps:


  • Disable all background programs on your system (including Steam). You can also do this with a clean boot
  • Temporarily disconnect all other devices that you don't need from your network
  • Use a wired connection
  • Make sure Origin is accepted in your anti-virus and firewall
  • You can also try using Safe Mode Downloading via Origin which is under Application Settings, Advanced

Let me know if they make a difference.

I have tried these steps before. Btw the safe mode makes my download pause to 0.00 and won't go. I also got in contact with the support team and followed 3 different methods but nothing seems to work. I even reinstalled windows from how pissed I was and I got the same result.

This would point to a system issue @NedaGarib, I just tested Origin on a number of machines there and had no issues on any.

Try disabling your anti-virus and Firewall to see if it helps?
