Sony has confirmed that you will be available to pre-load Call of Duty: Ghosts starting Nov. 3rd if you are digitally downloading the game. The game will unlock immediately at 12:01am PST on Nov. 5th.

Pre-order Call of Duty: Ghosts on PlayStation Store and you’ll be able to start downloading the game any time after 3:00 PM PT on Sunday, November 3th so you can begin playing as soon as 12:01 AM PST on November 5th. This feature will be available for both the standard game and the Digital Hardened Edition.

Then, after you’ve picked up your game, take advantage of the Double XP event during launch weekend from Friday, November 8th (10:00 AM PT) to Monday, November 11th (10:00 AM PT). You’ll earn twice as much XP on all of your multiplayer accomplishments.

If you’re in North America, or Latin America, buying Ghosts digitally on PS3 will get you Free Fall map.

    Now it’s Valve’s time to confirm a pre-load for the PC version. Pretty please.

    • Jay

      It would be easy to bypass so I don’t think they will do that

      • Primey_

        It’s very, very hard to bypass. All major games get a pre-load and none of them are cracked. They encrypt the files.

        • Unreal

          for ps3 its easy im already downloading it and then ill put it on my harddisk and cobra ode =)

          • campionite

          • Primey_

  • Dylan Wilson

    • campionite

  • Knives

    THANK YOU!!!

  • HenryDF

    YES! I’m gonna be waiting until 12:01am that night…it’s gonna feel like a really long wait.

    • Lightning1432

      To be honest it may feel like a long wait till the game comes out, but as long as you keep your mind off the game releasing, it will happen sooner than some may think.
      Note: This may not be the preferable option for some but it works for me 🙂

      • HenryDF

        Ahaha I’ll give it a go 😉

  • CoDforever

    Im so smart im partnered up with a friend and pay $30 each and we both get the game .. awesome !

    • BobtheCactus

      Smart? I think you misspelled “against code of conduct”

      • CoDforever

        Im only kidding.

    • Tracy Klock

      hows that ? game sharing ?

  • lMattW

    Will it also be available to pre-load for 360 and will Free Fall be included?

    • Keshav Bhat

      No pre load for 360 as you can’t preorder any game digitally for 360

      • vanguard

        You can lre order ghosts on xbl for a 12:01 dig download on the 5th just no news to a pre load

      • Jon Cameron

    • eggy

      yea FanOfMMA

  • agb96

    well looks like ill be picking this up in person as I’d have till wait until 3 am as I live in the eastern time zone. Way to support digital downloads Sony, if you want people to download the game as opposed to purchasing the hard copy you should have an incentive not penalty!

    • thatigg23

      You can start to preload at 7pm sunday. You can start playing your time 12.01 nov 5th

  • ElseAndrew

    I’d of more than likely done this if I didn’t have to wait until 4AM to play, I might as well pre-order and wait a little longer for the postman and get a hard copy.

  • campionite

    Whys there no ground war on current gen? 🙁 lets start a campain to get it back in please

  • Umbra_PC

    Really, us users on PC still have no news of when Pre-Loading will be available

  • Bmeowmix

    So who’s going to be the first to hack around the “lock”?

    • Brandalf

      I’d be surprised if it happened, Steam has done preloads for years and as far as I know nobody has ever been able to unlock the game early. They encrypt the files and then at 12:01 send out a decryption key to unlock the files and complete the install.

    • OldBrazy on PS4

      COD Ghosts is already hacked Aim Assist (ie Red Boxes..)
      People have been playing all day today
      @wyanando on instagram for example

  • Chris

    Setting up a clan for CoD: Ghosts cslled Chrono Gaming. Message me on xbox live. Gtag is Chono Savage. See you on november 5th fellow ghosts!

  • 3rdWorldMafia

    Seems like Ghosts on PS3 will dominate the 360. I bet some people will hack it so it’s playable before launch…

    • Nathan

      It already is. The torrent file for the game is out there.

    • Avery Horton

      Where do get that from? Cod has been way more popular on 360…I don’t know why u think all of the sudden everybody magically has a ps3, 360 has way more players on xbox live

      • Tracy Klock

        ur insane go do sum research the ps3 out sold the gaybox just as the ps4 will ~ Sony rules we don’t have to pay to play like u gaybox users they r all about money SONY is all about there players ~ and theres 5x’s more players on COD on the ps3 system !

        • Avery Horton

          Yah I’m sure that’s why when people hear COD, they usually think xbox. The ps3 may have sold more systems in the last few months but COD has been way more popular on xbox. Think about it, the MLG all play on 360s because that’s what everyone plays on. And guess, you have to pay the same amount for online when the ps4 comes out, I’m sure that’s just because Sony loves their customers right? I am not a fanboy, you, obviously are, so why don’t you do some more research first. I am just pointing out the truth. By the way, I own both systems, and am buying both next gen. The online on 360 is light years ahead of sony’s and it will take some time for them to catch up.

      • 3rdWorldMafia

        Think about it. With the PS3/4, the graphics are better and you can pre-load the game. I’m ignoring popularity, and talking about solid statistics.

        • Avery Horton

          Most people will buy the disc anyways so that doesn’t factor in very much, because when most people think of COD, xbox comes into mind just because of how popular the system has been and actually cross platform games have always been better on 360 because the ps3 architecture is hard to make games for, most developers, like IW, trey arch, dice, etc. just make lazy ports after they make the 360 version. The ps4 will be better, but that’s a whole other topic…
