How do I validate game files using the Steam client?

Follow

If some of your game files are missing or corrupt, you can usually fix that issue by validating the game assets.

Validate Game Assets through Steam Client

  • Run Steam
  • Right click on the game in your library.
  • Choose Properties.
  • Select the Local Files tab
  • Click Verify Integrity of Game Cache

This method should only be used for games run through the Steam client. For games not downloaded through Steam, there is an alternate method to validate files.
