UPDATE 3 — October 31: A new game update for Modern Warfare Remastered just went live again on PlayStation 4 and has re-enabled Public and Private Matches in the game for everyone to go online.

A message of the day in game says:

Stay Frosty…

Modern Warfare Remastered officially launches on November 4. Day 1 prep is in full swing as we are heads down making final adjustments to launch. In other words, game servers will be intermittent and unavailable at times as we make final adjustments before Friday. Thank you for your patience! 

NOTE: Embargo is still in effect. Activision will take down all streams and gameplay videos. They are even taking down some pictures form Twitter.


UPDATE 2: Now private matches have been shut down. Was fun while it lasted.

UPDATE: Looks like the MP servers were shut down, you can now only play private matches with bots.

ORIGINAL STORY:

Today keeps getting interesting…

The Modern Warfare Remastered Multiplayer servers are currently online on PlayStation 4, but in order to get in you have to do a few tricks…

You need to find someone in your friends list that is currently in a game session in Modern Warfare Remastered, either in a online game or a private match. Once you’ve joined them — you’re all set. You can play online and private matches.

It’s not clear if this is a bug or intentional…we will keep you updated.

UPDATE: … or you can do this->

    What about Xbone? I’ve had this preordered since June 3rd.. please let me play too 🙁

    • Xbox had their contract.

      BOOHOO.
      Don’t feel bad one bit 🙂

    • twanythedon

      go and pre-order a playstation 4 next, and then you’ll be able to (possibly) play before launch date

      • Beast Mode

        this call of duty is nowhere near a good enough reason to go from a badass system like the xone to a playstation…nowhere…

        • AlphaPoppy

          graphics, more players, mw1 contract – PS4 wins

          • Beast Mode

            Lol graphics..if you really cared about graphics you would be on PC..so no

            More players? So you choose quantity over quality..psn is trash compared to xbox live..look it up… so no

            Mw1 contract lol..again..if youre thinking we should switch consoles for a headstart on a dying franchise then youre lost…

            So no

          • Filthy Prank’d

            It all depends on preferences. The only reason I have an Xbox One is to play with my friends, and that’s literally it. We play games that are only on Xbox One and PC, while the games that are on PS4, we play it because they are exclusive to it. I main on my PS4 though since I cater onto my Japanese consoles more (PS and Nintendo guy), and I’m a guy that is really in Japanese games. It doesn’t matter which is “superior”, rather the system you’ve had the most enjoyment out of.

          • Beast Mode

            Superior matters to me (the buyer)….
            Xbox is the clear winner in online gaming…backwards compatibility, windows 10 integration, 4k blu ray, best online network…i can keep going..

            Ps4 if u like those type of exclusives obviously…but overall its xbox

            Plus….SCORPIO IS COMINGGGGGG

    • Bruce womack

      Exactly !

    • Mario Rivera

      its only 4 days 🙂

    • What’s an X bone

  • Beast Mode

    its a way to gradually let people get on the servers without the effect of a DDoS..

    but probably not

  • bre

        Shit, i wish people actually got banned on the OG cod4. Maybe then it wouldn’t be filled with carefree hackers

        • one of the biggest reasons im excited for the remaster is for the bigger player count and hacker wipe. graphics update is also nice but those two things are the biggest problem with pretty much any older cod

        Depressing? I find it quite exciting that we will have a qualified woman as president!

          disgusting.

            u do know they re opened the emails for a reason right

          • AlphaPoppy

            Yep to make President Drumpf happen

          • Skillreks

            Hillary is a literal ling piece of shit. Trump is shit too, but he’s not tied down by rich people telling him what to do or say. politics are corrupt. Trump says things because he’s not being paid to keep quiet. also, “grab her in the pussy”. OMG he’s a Human being!!?!?! No guy has EVER said something like that EVER. shit. damn, I was hoping to vote for a pharaoh of Egypt. Tut for prez, amirite? -.-

          • BradyAlucard

            Way to defend him. How about his sexual assault cases, or him calling Mexicans criminals? He’s the worst presidential candidate in U.S. history. At least the 3 presidents with a lack of political experience were military leaders, unlike Trump, who avoided the draft.

          • Skillreks

            you’ve never swore in your life? you’ve never made fun of anyone? you’re no better than the people we are about to have in charge of us. what do you have to say? let’s all vote you for president! there. problem solved.

          • BradyAlucard

            I swore like a sailor up until a few months ago, where I’ve almost completely stopped in every day dialogue, but the “beast” comes back out when I play video games online. But, again, your ways of excusing his antics that no president has ever done (Hillary too, unlike Nixon, Hillary was under FBI investigation before she [presumably] gets elected) is adorable, but not logical. The difference between me and Trump is that I am very open about the fact that I have a dark sense of humor. Your statement is fallacious because Trump’s bigoted comments about Mexico, disabled reporters, and his sex life are serious, not a joke.

            I endorsed Gary Johnson and he called Donald Trump a “pussy” and Obama’s had his own fair share of swearing, it’s not the swearing that makes me think that Trump is the worst presidential candidate in U.S. history, it’s his complete utter ignorance, bigotry, and lack of political experience.

        • Kys

          That didn’t know what the C ment in those those classified emails she deleted.

        • Sol Malus

          “Qualified”

          If being a criminal makes you qualified, then I’m qualified.

          • BradyAlucard

            Hillary’s only qualified on paper; as a First Lady, Senator, and Secretary of the State. Johnson is more qualified to be a leader.

    • Both candidates suck. I’m not voting and I’m a part of the problem. My problem is I’m peaceful. And I believe in the people.

      • Apollo Ape

        Using Lupe lyrics lol 😂😂

      • Sexy Mcgee

        Vote Jill Stein, bitch.

        • BradyAlucard

          Jill Stein is a wacko.

          • Sexy Mcgee

            “Gary Johnson is a wacko.”*
            *fixed.

          • BradyAlucard

            I hope you’re joking, because “what is Aleppo?” hasn’t got anything on “we should not be subjecting kids’ brains” [to Wi-Fi]. Johnson’s the best candidate we have no question and there’s no reason to call him a “wacko”.

          • Sexy Mcgee

            I think the repercussions of knowing dick all about foreign events are more dire than making health concern statements on inconclusive medical evidence.

          • BradyAlucard

            Johnson and Weld both did great things as Governors. They were Republicans in Democratic states and shrunk the government down. But yeah, let’s all vote for another crazy lady who makes up conspiracy nonsense. We already have Hillary for that.

      • BradyAlucard

        Amen. Thanks for the view from the outside. Here in America, everyone seems to think the world is America and America is the world. All I can do is hang my head in shame.

    • DEMOLITION12
      • Mario Rivera

        Hillary is depending on people who don’t keep up on current events to elect her. Her lies and corrupt treasonous acts are easily viewable to the public but somehow many idiots remain…

        • Skillreks

          yea. also, trump isn’t held down by rich people. Hillary just blatantly lies, and ther is proof all over youtube. Trump, however, sure, hes bad. but, I mean, I’m a human, I am not perfect. who cares if he said “grab her in the pussy”. Hillary said she’d stop, and she hasn’t. Trump says what he plans on doing. Hillary says what others tell her to say. JS

          • Mario Rivera

            Its funny cuz Hillary helped a brutal rapist of a 12 year girl get out on a laughable loophole as well as being on record saying that she was going to ”crucify” all the women coming forward about being sexually abused by her husband. Yea, shes all for justice and equal rights for women…

          • Triton

            Meanwhile Trump tries to french kiss a 6 year old on live TV.

          • darren

            YouTube=truth??? Wtf are you smoking???

          • Skillreks

            she once said she was against abortion. and against gay marriage, to name a few. suddenly she is for them? she is just saying what she thinks the majority of people want to hear.

          • BradyAlucard

            Trump lies all the time by flip flopping about everything he says.

          • Mario Rivera

            Most of us men have said similar or worse things when chilling with the guys, difference is Hillary is actually on record for evil acts against abused women tho.

        • darren

          And Trump is relying on getting bellyachers who don’t have a clue about what the real world is. I’ve got idiots in Wis telling me how bad Mexicans are and how they are taking our jobs. We have like 3 in my area, and those three jobs they took, the unemployed white people felt those jobs are beneath them and would rather stay unemployed.

          Honestly, do you trust this idiot with the button? If you do, you’re even dumber than you sound.

          Trolls for Trump

          • Mario Rivera

            Sounds like you like in a nice cushy neighborhood darren. Here in NYC just about all of our restaurants and construction companies are filled with illegals. Trust me people want those jobs but when a lot of them go for them they are either filled with Mexicans or you are forced to accept a sub minimum wage salary to compete with all the cheap Mexican labor. I have about 10 years in the restaurant biz and a couple years in construction. I’ve seen this 1st hand all too well. A lot of places, even in the most upscale neighborhoods wont hire you unless you speak Spanish just so you can communicate with all the illegal Mexicans working in the back.

        • BradyAlucard

          Benghazi was never proven, but that’s just one thing. No matter what, she’s still infinitely better than Trump will ever be, but I can’t stand it when Americans think that there’s only a 2-party system.

          • Mario Rivera

            Well sure, you got your various independent candidates but Democrat vs Republican is always what it comes down to. Trump actually screwed the Republicans over when he ran as one. He is more a independent as He doesn’t represent the party at all. I think its a good thing that he doesn’t represent a party filled with bought out politicians tho. Theres a reason why both parties hate him, hes a straight shooter and he can’t be bought out by the same political sponsors they were. Trump can be rash but you know what, i actually like his ideas of protecting our borders, bringing back jobs and generally putting america 1st no matter who he has to offend at the end of the day. I’ll take him over the Anti-Christ any day.

          • BradyAlucard

            “but Democrat vs Republican is always what it comes down to”

            Not to me. I brought it up because I’m not part of the two-party system, and the only reason why you say that is because of the lies that you’ve been fed to, such as Johnson, Stein (puke), etc. being wasted votes even though our votes don’t matter when we have the electoral college anyway. The Libertarian Party, the party that I’m a part of is the 3rd largest party in the United States (50 states unlike the Green Party, + DC), so not embracing that is asinine. This “15% to be able to debate” rule is silly and needs to be abolished; all candidates should be able to argue for their agenda, especially Johnson, who’s doing the 3rd best (how Trump is beating him without any political experience is beyond me, if you’re a Republican, I feel very sorry for you, as a former Republican).

            “i actually like his ideas of protecting our borders, getting a better end of foreign deals, bringing back jobs and generally putting America 1st no matter who he has to offend at the end of the day”

            All of these things are an act. Sure they might speak volumes to you, but that’s because his speeches work on you. What I’ve noticed is that Trump seems that he can’t even explain his own policies, so if I had to choose between the two I’d say… neither one, but Hillary is more qualified and would do more in her presidency, I mean heck, even North Korea endorsed Trump. Plus her foreign policy destroys Trump’s; his build-a-wall charade is nothing but a joke and would never work. About Hillary being the Anti-Christ, well… I don’t know. She’s religious herself just like you and I (presumably), but being an SJW liberal, her views aren’t really as in-favor of religious liberty as Trump’s or Johnson’s (I’m not even going to mention Stein because she’s crazy, Johnson destroys her in ever way).

  • Well.. I already know I wont’ be able to get into a game because I don’t have a lot of people playing this game.

        No it wont because PS got the campaign 30 days early so they got into the game already

        • Former

          That’s what I figured.

    is it working or nah???

    • [EV] BLISS

      Read the charlieintel post if that’s what you mean, you can’t actually go straight into multiplayer wihtout joining somone, so I would advise you joining a community and joining them through there

    • you need 1.02, 1.03 dont work my doude

  • The servers weren’t shut down? You can still play with other people in private match (not just bots)..

    • Jackson

      Private matches use p2p so your machine is the host just like the old days but you need to connect to a dedicated server for public matches to work and this is not the case at the moment.

      • “UPDATE: Looks like the MP servers were shut down, you can now only play private matches with bots..”
        I was referring to what they were stating.

  • They just forced out an update, fuck

  • Hunter

    Damn they took it down. I can’t even play private matches anymore after the most recent update they did which locked it. What a tease.

    • At least we know the game is gunna be great, gg

      • Hunter

        Same man. It’s gonna be awesome I can’t wait. All the nostalgia is coming back.

    • [EV] BLISS

      Wow, and I just bought like right now for that lol to play private match

  • Fucking Tmartn having to fucking make a video on it, along with all the other COD youtubers.

      Its all about money dude.

      It wasn’t just Tmartn who ruined it. It was all over Reddit and Twitter before Charlieintel even said anything about it.

    Guys I just bought the legacy edition for PS4, how do I download the campaign?Q!?!?!? PLease anyone I’m freaking out lol

    • [EV] BLISS

      Yeah I totally got scammed, I fucking bought it like now thinking I would get 30 days early access to campaign because that’s what it says on the description when you buy the game, but it tells me to wait 3 days -.- fuck this, can anyone help that with this shit, I pre-ordered the legacy edition with in the PSN store

      • guestuser1

        Modern Warfare Remastered 30 day Early Access period on PS4 started on October 5th 2016. It is no longer 30 days, less than that. You understand?

        Maybe you should just check your game library. I played MWR on october 5th so it worked like charm for me.

        • [EV] BLISS

          It worked!! I had to like it first, then check my activites and it said download, now IM downloading. I tried searching on psn store, but it said wait 3 days, but Im so happy I got it!!

  • [EV] BLISS

    Wait so public match is now online?? This is what I understood from update 3, please tell me this is true 😀

  • YoungMurf

    The one year I decide to get CoD on my Xbox One instead of my PS4 :/

      • [EV] BLISS

        Well this is how we felt for 8 years, also think about the poor PC players, they never had the exclusivity 😉

        • Geo

          I legit hate that argument… “This is how we felt” yeah it was how I felt and still do, I had a PS3 and now an XB1 and PC. I have always been screwed.

          + The 360 deal did not extend to getting half a game early and devs caving in because they failed to set a date properly for game access.

          • [EV] BLISS

            Well cod 4 remastered is developed by raven software, and this is the first time where 2 cods come out at the same time…

          • BradyAlucard

            Xbox had ALL DLC early, not just the Season Pass. Microsoft should have allowed betas, but that was their own fault.

      • YoungMurf

        No I get it, the exclusivity is with Sony and rightly so, but I thought maybe after PS4 players getting the campaign 30 days early, that they would let both consoles now play online.
        Kinda blows that servers are okay for PS4 players and all I get is ‘Pre-ordered’ in my games and apps.

        • They’re only doing this as people keep finding ways to get on multiplayer via PS4….

  • Bogs Bunni

    anyone having an issue where when you’re searching for a game your ps4 makes a lot of noise? is that normal?

    • Triton

      No. Perhaps an fps issue during that screen.
      There are 2-3 games with this issue on PS4, I dont remember which ones tho.
      I recommend to report it to Activision.

    • Yes, sometimes during game as well

    • Nick Bly

      Yeah I had that problem, I was playing and all of a sudden it sounded like a jet engine… Restarted the game and it was fine.

    • Mr.Blobby

      Bro, my PS4 sounds like it’s about to take off. I deleted Black Ops 3 cos it was having the same effect and I thought it was because BO3 was really badly optimised, but MWR is making it even louder. I know about replacing the thermal paste and cleaning the fan, but I’ve had mine for 2 and a half years now so maybe an upgrade is due? I use it near enough every day so maybe it’s just beginning to pack it in. Any advice/suggestions would be much appreciated.

      • Paul Urquhart

        Clean out your fan take the back off then power pack out either Hoover or blow with air into the slots going to the board and the fan put it back together and you will have silence.

    • Vittorio D’Antuono

      Absolutely. Only when in the MP menu, as soon as I join a game, the fans slow down dramatically and get back to a normal RPM cycle.
      I’m sure it will be addressed in the Day 1 patch.

  • djml9

      I disnt mind the speed but the age definitey shows. It doesnt feel as smooth as CoD usually does, and the collision boxes feel way too big. Im constantly getting stuck on boxes and shit that im cleary far enough away from. Also, the selection is so limited.

    Should of just left the servers on like they done with infinite warfare. Very unfair as the millions hyped for mwr is sat waiting while others play infinite warfare

    Played my first couple of matches today and I was really liking it, but I’m so waiting for the Day 1 patch because there’s still a lot to be done. Weapon balance, health regeneration and most of all TTK (Time To Kill).
    Btw I’m stoked! 🙂
