Steam has updated their listing for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare to state that the release time for the game will be midnight local time.

For those that have preordered, you can get the Day Zero Edition with the Day Zero content and start playing at the release time listed above.

UPDATE: Users are reporting that you can now pre-load Advanced Warfare on Steam if you have preordered (via @ET_BigBuyer).

    It’s 12am YOUR time zone FYI so on my store it’s 12am GMT

    • KofodGame

      So if set my IP to a other timezone, that unlock the game early, i can get it early? xD

      • Primey_

        Yeah. Lots of people do so. Unlocking early via a VPN is nothing new. Figure out which timezone is the first to turn 12am on the 3rd and you can possibly play it then. It’s meant to be against the Steam T&C but it’s a gray area. People do it and valve does nothing about it.

        • KofodGame

          Oh, thanks man. Learn somthing new everday, haha.

          Sorry to bother you with more questions, but is there a guide to do this? I would really appreciate it.

          Thanks once again! 😀

          • Primey_

            1) Get a free VPN. I use SoftEther VPN Client
            http://download.vpngate.jp/common/cd.aspx/vpngate-client-2014.11.01-build-9506.130997.zip

            2) Find what part of the world unlocks the game earlier than your timezone so for the people in america they would probably want to use GMT because it unlocks earlier here than in the US

            3) Find that location in the vpn client. Exit steam and connect to a vpn rely server
            http://i.imgur.com/nPVSZog.png

            4) Open steam, start advanced warfare (you should pre-load before doing this), it will take a minute to download the stuff to unlock it

            5) When advanced warfare starts, alt tab and disconnect from your vpn < very important, you must do this

            6) Enjoy.

            Whenever you exit advanced warfare it will re-lock so you need to do it all again.

          • KofodGame

            Thanks man!

            What happends if i play while the VPN is on? And when i exit the game, does it still safe my lvl, stats, wepons and such?

            You have been a amazing help. Thanks!

          • Primey_

            If you play with the vpn activated then you’ll probably get bad ping. Yeah your stats and everything will still save.

  • Krizzeh

    Its 12:00am of YOUR time zone, for me it says 12:00am MSK because i live in Moscow

    • Daniel

      Good to see more russians on Charlie Intel 🙂

    • RdJokr

      Oddly enough, it seems that Steam applies the Moscow unlock time to every country in the Asia region (I’m from Vietnam BTW).

      Royalty looks nice. I hate how diamond looks in this game, though. I’ll probably use Multicam Black, Concrete, carbon fiber, and royalty the most once I unlock them. The image is cut off though so idk about the other 4.

    • meow

      50 kills with no attachments for gold. 500 headhots the digital urban…

      500 FUCKING HEADSHOTS WITH PEOPLE JUMPING AND DODGING N SHIT?

      • Guywithbrains

        50 kills with no attachments for gold? Isn’t that a little bit too easy?

        • meow

          http://imgur.com/a/7BDXS#0 check out for yourself lol

        • Siftblade of Rivia

          Yup. First thing everyone’s probably gunna get.

          • Guywithbrains

            But that diamond is hard to get. That’s good.

            Offtopic: Have you seen the newest AC: Unity trailer? (I remembered you are going to get it so I wanted to ask)

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            The time jump thing? Yeah. I tried to avoid trailers, but I was kinda curious on what it was. Instant regrets, wish I didn’t watch it, lol.

          • Guywithbrains

            It just feels like they had two favorite eras and now they just mess it up by adding both of them to the game. Also it doesn’t make sense to make time jump from revolutionary Paris to the other one (I won’t spoil it to other ones).

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Well, I’m on the other end. I love this idea of jumping through time. It makes sense to me, as it’s an Animus, so when the worlds get mixed together… Yeah, but I don’t think it’s going to change the Arno storyline, i think it’s just going to add to the out-of-the-animus story, which I hope they fix in this game. It’s too damn confusing. I like the puzzles though, lol.

      • Siftblade of Rivia

        You’ll get it with playtime. Plus, I heard most of the weapons have like no recoil, so that should help.

        • meow

          i mean 100 headshots i could do in about 5 – 7 games with an AR on HC would take me a couple of hours so 200 seems right but 500 then 50 kills with no perks or attachments? doesnt make sence :/ ah man its gonna suck lol

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            On the plus side, it’s going to take people a while to get Royalty legit. Nobody will have it in the first few weeks like BO2 where everyone had diamond quickly.

          • meow

            yeah true just annoying because when you got to focus on headshots you cant really enjoy the game :/ oh well we will find out xD

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Difference between BO2 and this is that in BO2 you had to do the headshots first, so you focused on that. With this, you can do everything at once, I believe. So if you focus on other challenges and just playing normally, you’ll get the headshots pretty quick I hope. People are saying the 500 grind isn’t too bad.

          • Guywithbrains

            Am I right when I say that in MW2 you needed 250 headshots to get fall camo?

          • I hope we can progress towards every camo at the same time.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            I think we can. When they scrolled over the camo requirements, none said “Must unlock ___ camo to unlock this challenge”

          • meow

            id rather 200 then something like 200 kill with no perks and 100 double kills why make those so easy you could get half of the camos in a day :/ well i guess you could do 500HS a week so really itll take you 3 months to do AR and SMGs thats time i would like to be playing the game too :/

          • meow

            use to take me hour half to do 100 headshots so yeah 8 hours isnt really a grind (still long though) i guess but then thats AR what about and pistols? or shotguns? o_o ah fuck it only couple more day and ill find out my self xD

          • True dat.

            “Hopefully everything will reset when the Day One patch goes live.”

          • DB

            50 kils with no perks is exactly the same as BO2 – and I got DIAMOND everything in that game

          • I Might Be Wrong But…

            It was 150 kills no perks and/or no attachments in black ops? Diamond eh?

          • Stephen G. Perez

            Seems legit.

        • Juses

          Ok.. thats 3,000 head shots for all the smgs. and… you don’t get a headshot with every kill.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Who said it was supposed to be easy?

          • Juses

            That’s too difficult.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Not really. Everyone with the game already says it’s not as bad as it looks.

          • Juses

            500 head shots ? 200 longshots when the maps are tiny?

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            The maps aren’t tiny. They’re all medium to large. Plus the long shot distance is pretty short I heard. You probably shouldn’t judge the difficulty of something before you play it.

      • Apox

        Yeah you get gold in 2-3 matches..

      • Justin

        And isn’t it like 200 Longshots? They are crazy, I really hope they get nerfed like they did with some of the Ghosts challenges. This is all I will play for the next year pretty much, but these challenges are still a little bit too much.

    • Stephen G. Perez

      Thanks, this shit gets me hyped.

  • Kevin Spacey’s Hair Transplant

    Come on Charlie Intel; at least display the exact times for each region the game unlocks. America isn’t the only country in the world and this site has a bigger European fanbase than the US. We should be the ones having to convert the times.

    • Primey_

      You don’t need to convert anything. It’s 12am your timezone. It doesn’t unlock for everyone at 12am et just those in the et timezone

  • TheGamerBeast

    yes this info is 3 days old, it was changed to Nov 3rd midnight for US and EU will be unlocked 14 hours after US release, then after we talked about it the whole day Steam removed the count down and put AW on steam 12am for every time Zone so if that is CORRECT UK will get it before US, so it is 12 am GMT, EST, PST, CST, MSK, everytime zone & there’s information REGARDING PRELOAD ON STEAM SHOULD START 12PM CST which is in 1 hour FROM NOW

    • Daniel

      Thanks man, gonna check steam later

  • Boss

    The Pre-load i propably gonna star in 1-2 hours.

    • Mar7ongA

      I hope so! 😀

  • J4MES

    5PM GMT for the Pre-Load according to Gamestop. Not sure if I believe them because we haven’t heard diddly squat from Steam as per usual.

  • Still seeing the same ” we wuntz ww2 cod plox ” comments on YouTube.

    • Mar7ongA

      I know, its so annoying. And also the people who say CoD4 and MW2 were the best CoDs, all others were shit. They dont even give a chance to Sledgehammer Games to produce something good, they instantly say “oh exo-skeletons? fuck that shit it looks awful”.

        also here is a guy playing the map Solar…and a unique map scorestreak… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xXNFL7_7aF4

        • What happened to the MORS? The scope isn’t how it used to be, I liked the old version better

          • JuicyJuice

            Dont know…dont have the game yet

          • I think this guy wasn’t playing on the current gen because I saw the same footage titled xbox 360 so It’s just moon studio that did that.

          • Why? Ghosts could handle rendering the screen twice for their DMRs and Sniper rifles on the 360. Plus AW doesn’t even render the screen twice, the screen zooms in like it was in older cods.

          • SlyCooper5555 .

            Dont worry Moo Cow the snipers are dual rendered i saw leaked last gen gameplay. His must have been glitched out.

          • Jay

            I’m pretty sure that’s the variable zoom scope.

          • In ghosts the scope still zoomed in, it didn’t change the entire way it aimed down sights. Also, he didn’t use a variable zoom. He used stock and the anti-suppressor microphone thing.

          • Jay

            Pause it as he’s changing weapons. He’s using stock and a variable zoom. The microphone does look like the zoom tho. Easy to confuse them.

    It should unlock @ midnight on every country. I don’t care if I’m playing it before the US is, I fucking payed to get one day of early access, not half of it…

    • Primey_

      “It should unlock @ midnight on every country.”

      It is

        • Tricky VIk

          “I know right, I mean I don’t really care much that they got it early, but what pisses me off is that people can’t follow rules, all they had to do was wait and whatnot, wait till’ release date to post things, but no they leak and stream, they mod and hack and it ruins it for the rest of the community, I’m glad they’re releasing a security patch.”

            I used to be a PC Player…but I bought a PS4 and leave PC. I just will HAVE TO play on PC at launch because my PS4 is broken and Im waiting it comes back from Warranty. IM tired to waste lots and lots of money changing VGA’s…every GTX we change..we spend a LOT of money for what??? Same graphics of Consoles..

          • TheShadowReaper

            false, a lot of lies said here. i have a GTX570 and i still play all games better than any console does right now. 1080p 60 fps.

            what you spend your money on is being able to run games on higher frame rate, but if you are already at 60 on 1080p then why even consider upgrading? the only reason i want to upgrade is because i want more VRAM for mods. else i have no reason to do so. please, stop spreading misinformation.

          • Diego Diniz

            Im Brazilian Dude! Do you know how much is a brand new NVIDIAs GTX here??? much more than a THOUSAND dolars! if you want to build a SLi…you will have to spend A LOT OF MONEY here!

          • NuttyTheSquirrel

            And the fucking PS4 costs more than 600 dollars (it costs more than 1,800 dollars according to some websites) there in Brazil…

            But Brazil is one of almost 200 countries.

            I was talking in general. If you’re talking about your experience, then you need to mention that in Brazil things cost more than they should.

            EDIT: You can save a shit-ton of money in Brazil in terms of games for PC then. My point still stands.

          • Typical KD campers before launch?

            they will stil camp after launch because they’re campers.

  • Iwan
  • J Sama

    Can someone please tell me if COD: AW will have Day Zero edition on the 360 Marketplace. I’ve talked to 3 different support people. Here are the results. 1.”im pretty sure” 2.”it should be” 3.”it’ll be out the day is comes out but im not sure if you’ll get the day zero bonuses”. So basically all I’m certain of, is the game is coming out on Marketplace at release but will it include all of the Day Zero bonus stuff? I have 83 dollars on my xbox account, so I’d rather use that but I still can preorder with my own money online. I just dont wanna spend unnecessary money. Anybody know the deal with this?

    I got a message from game stop saying all Advanced Warfare releases will be available at 12am Eastern so 11pm for central.

    • xlExquisite

      Well Nvm, I didn’t know it was already stated on another thread must have updated before I noticed.

    • Xecho

      Treyarch always has love for every other company

    • Juses

      Infinity ward didn’t even give Sledehammer a card D:

      • Infinity Ward doesn’t seem to care as much as Treyarch, which is rather funny since Ghosts is ew.

  • RdJokr

    Meanwhile, IW forgot to send SHG some pint. #GoodGuyTreyarch

    • Juses

      IW hates Treyach and SHG

      • RdJokr

        No kidding, it was like that even back in the West/Zampella days.

        • ben wills

          It was MORE like that in the West/Zampella days.

          Buttt those two are also stupidly talented so whatever.

      • JDahn

        Because Treyarch and SHG are way better than the shitty IW.

        • Juses

          IW still hated TREYARCH during the mw2 days.

    • Kill Denied

      I like how you posted this.

      • jooker-jr

        And What’s your impression ?

  • Juses

  • Guywithbrains

    Tough times are ahead. Somehow people who are going to play singleplayer first have to avoid spoilers as much as they can, including me.

    • Chris

      I know! As soon as its realised I’m taking out my internet router to force myself to play single player.

  • ScOott

    I know most of you will know but just incase in the uk game open at 11 pm tomorrow and u can pick up ur copy of advanced warfare

  • LovekillerX

    So there is new mission listed on Call of Duty which is called “Terminus.” I don’t know what happens in that mission but last mission isn’t “Captured.” And I wouldn’t even tell you even if I would know because I don’t want to spoil. 🙂

    But there are 15 missions if you count “Terminus” I think…

    • MyKogInYourAshe

      Terminus is the last mission

  • ScOott

    Looks like I’m avoiding going on charlie Intel now people leaking story mode.. I never thought I’d say this …. Weekend hurry up n be over!

    • Guywithbrains

      One does not simply hope Monday to come fast… until now. 😉

      • ScOott

        Indeed… Monday is said to be the shortest horror story n know it has a plot twist

    Actually it says EST everywhere, so no, not local time. Universal unlock based on that information.
