Sony has confirmed that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare on both PS4 and PS3 will support the preloading option if you preorder the game on the PlayStation Store. If you preorder the game on the PlayStation Store, you will get automatic preloading starting on October 30th.


The game will begin downloading on October 30th and will be ready for you to play starting November 4th at 12am PST. If you preorder Advanced Warfare on PSN Store, you will still get the Advanced Arsenal bonus that was announced last week.

Microsoft does not yet support preloading for any titles on Xbox One or Xbox 360.

    • HotHam

      I’ve been loving my ps4 but also my gaming PC 😛 it’s up to you now!

    • jooker-jr

      I’m ps player. But if u have the money to build a ps and purchase parts for it in the future go with the PC , Also play with ur friends and look at what interest u in terms of games

      Good amount of dancing in that interview.

      * Super Melee [Knock someone 20 feet]
      * Exo Slam [Vertical Melee]

      This could really ruin it for quickscopers. This could be the best call of duty yet.

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        If quickscoping was difficult to do for a change, I’d definitely consider it the best CoD.

        • Bigi345

          If the new engine uses a new auto aim mechanic, then it could be difficult.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            It better, or they could have built it in, which would piss me off. If the quickscoping is like Black Ops 2/MW2/MW3, then we’re screwed. Lots of rage. Lots of controllers broken.

            A new engine (which definitely is new btw I think they started completely from scratch and just threw in old code) also means that the game doesn’t think in frames per second anymore. So I guess the lag compensation won’t be nearly as bad (I think that’s kind of what it means correct me if I’m wrong).

          • Hopefully they make going prone a bit slower. I’m sure i’m not the only one who hate those dropshotters.

          • Bigi345

            Hip fire more often

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Looks like in the trailer that you prone pretty fast tbh.

      • Grenaider55

        How I see it – either:
        Leave “quickscoping” like how it was in Ghosts

        Make it much more difficult to pull off (something like the sniping in thge original Black Ops)

        • jordanxbrookes

          Black Ops sniping Post Patch was great, the only issue was the crap hit detection and latency issues.

        • Angelreborn96

          Nooo no no Can’t leave QS the way it was on Ghosts. Absolutely not lol

      • Would be great if when you punch someone, they would go through a wooden wall that’s behind them or something.

      • jooker-jr

        I think boost jump will make it easy to trickshot ( although I think they removed it because it’s a new engine and most people hate trickshoters )

        • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

          Which would suck lol. Trickshitting needs to go.

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      No matter what video a YouTube channel makes, whether it’s an interview or gameplay (on channels that aren’t CoD-biased), people will always dislike it and talk shit, even though they know little about the game. That’s what pisses me off.

      • NextGenNose

        It’s what all the “cool kids” are doing. They just do it to follow the ‘Crowd of Negativity’ and whatever will get them thumbs up/likes/whatever, by other blinded and clueless people. It’s always the same comments every year.

        Oh look, the usual people talking shit on a CoD article on GS. Only took me 30 seconds to spot some!


        • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

          Yep. Comments like those definitely piss me off. I don’t want to butt-in, but it’s so hard not to. I don’t think those guys know that these are the developers of Dead Space (on a side note, it’s weird that Activision and EA are so similar in terms of their developers quitting lol, Visceral and IW are marketed as the original studios). Just because it has “Call of Duty” in the title, doesn’t magically make AW a terrible game. They saw ONE mission with only a few mechanics. We’ve only scratched the surface so far (in the words of Condrey himself). We have not even seen the multiplayer yet, so it’s difficult and very ignorant to say that the game will be garbage just because it, again, has CoD in the title.

          • TheShadowReaper

            ^ this

            and to add to this, if AW didnt had COD in its title it would have been Titanfall of previous E3. but there 2 kinds of people. those who hear COD and run towards it and those who run away from it just because of the words “Call of Duty”. *sign*

        • Xboxonedan

          Why get so butthurt about other people’s opinions? It’s pessimists like that who were spot on about COD Ghosts and wish I listened to them instead of being blinded by hype. I bet they’ll be absolutely correct once again come November.

          • i♥COD

            Ghosts was an all time low for COD. AW does need to live up to the hype.

          • Grenaider

            All they’ve seen was AW single player, and these are the same people who’ve hated and called out half of the previous CODs

        • XBOXONE4EVER

          OMG thats what i say. “Oh yeah, Im so cool, let me hate on CoD for likes even though i base my life off of it.” Makes no sense, the haters are usually the ones that play it the most lol.

    • I don’t want to look like a hater, but didn’t Crysis had that kind of power slam?

      • kyr95

        Well we havent seen it in action in AW, we dont know if its the exact same thing, right?

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        Power slams are everywhere. When they say that they are innovating, they mean that they’re innovating CoD, not the genre lol (or maybe that’s completely the case and I’m just a corporate sheep).

        Infamous Second Son has power slams. Halo has power slams. I’ve seen it in all sorts of games (except they are so powerful that the ground quakes). The difference? I don’t remember the AI flying 20 feet.

        • kyr95

          I actually think that we might have a case of power slam from the trailer. Remember the last scene that shows Gideon launching into an enemy? Maybe this guy gets thrown 20 feet away 😛

        • jooker-jr

          No slaps ? Damn it

    • Epicsand

      It has nothing that has not been reported by Charlieintel, but thanks for sharing.

  • Damien Anderson

    I wonder what the differences between the current and next-gen will be? Well, besides graphics anyway.

    • jordanxbrookes

      Player count, Ground War wasn’t available on 7th Gen systems because of capacity limitations. It doesn’t affect me since I have an Xbox One, but I hope the normal modes in AW are 9v9 and Ground War is 12v12.

      • Damien Anderson

        Ground War? Never heard of it. A next-gen exclusive game mode, I assume. Is it just 12V12 deathmatch? Or does it have objectives?

        • James K
        • MichiganerE

          You’ve never heard of Ground War? You know, the 18 player game mode that’s been around since CoD 4? Are you new to CoD?

          • Damien Anderson

            No I’ve played online since COD4. I guess I just overlooked it until know. All I play is TDM and DOM.

          • MichiganerE

            Are you blind?

          • Damien Anderson


          • MichiganerE

            Thought so.

          • TheShadowReaper

            funny fact is that the usual number for COD4 on PC is still 9v9 so we on the PC saw ground war first time on MW2. it doesnt make any difference but its a fun fact knowing that what we had one year earlier was baptized “ground war” one game later.

          • MichiganerE

            Wow. Also, didn’t CoD 2 & 4 on PC have 64 man servers?

          • TheShadowReaper

            yeah they still do in some versions. but i wouldnt recommend more than 32 players per server, else its a fuckfest. i’ve tried and its “shoot somewhere, you get a kill” on 64 player servers. on 32 players its more balanced yet the action is still huge.

        • jordanxbrookes

          You seriously don’t know what Ground War is? Was Ghosts your first CoD game on 360/PS3?

          • Damien Anderson

            No, as I said earlier I have played cod online since 4. Though I’ve played the series in general since “big red one” on the original xbox.

          • jordanxbrookes

            I didn’t read the other comments lol

      • MichiganerE

        I’m getting Advanced Warfare on Xbox One as well. I hope to see you there.

        • xVale

          I’ll be just getting it on my PS4.

          • MichiganerE


          • TheShadowReaper

            and i’ll be getting it on my PC. too bad cross platform isnt so popular yet.

        • jordanxbrookes

          You will my brother 🙂

          • MichiganerE


      • Manu

        If the maps are small to medium you don’t need that!

        • jordanxbrookes

          Black Ops 2’s maps were all basically small-to-medium and it still had Ground War.

        • k5berry

          Thank you for reminding me about another thing on my AW Wishlist: a thing that labels maps as “Small, Medium or Large”. Why? I have no idea, it just looks cool

      • TheShadowReaper

        i really miss the good old days of COD4 and BO with 9v9 on the PC. the perfect number of people for COD maps imo. lets hope SHG brings that back else that will make me really unhappy. and i have been unhappy about this 3 games now.

        • jordanxbrookes

          Black Ops will always be my favourite CoD game, I miss my Commando :'(

          • TheShadowReaper

            yeah, i miss my Commando too and especially the Galil. such a nice arsenal of weapon BO has. i wish for AW to also give us an arsenal as exciting to use as BOs’.

    • Keshav Bhat

      For one, it’s done by a different developer. SHGames is all on next-gen and PC since day 1 for this game; so you’ll basically be getting a port.

      • Ryumoau

        i’m so glad they decided to start with next. Ghosts was held back too much.

  • Not sure

    The PlayStation Store has said this for at least 2 weeks.

  • ItsReaDz

    Steam had that for Years! 🙂

    Aint hating on Consoles got one two! 🙂

  • That sounds like a great idea… shame Xbox One/Xbox 360 doesn’t have this…

  • Steamy

    I just bought this as a pre-order on PC for £22.99. Steam still charging full price but thankfully other reputable sites are selling it dirt cheap on DL. Was gonna get it for Xbox One but I don’t really want to pay £54.99 for a game that might not be worth the money.

  • TheShadowReaper

    you know as much as i bash consoles i’ll give props to Sony for bringing at last the pre-load feature to their system. thats a nice addition for PS gamers. while pre-load has been on Steam for a long while, Steam or XboxLive for that matter do not have this *game is loading as you play* thingy. hooray Sony i guess. good addition and value out of a PS system.

  • Really glad that the knife melee is gone.
    It wouldn’t be logical to see a futuristic marine, running around in the Exo and knifing people in the legs.

    • jordanxbrookes

      The knifing will return, it will be missed :'(

      • jooker-jr

        Super slap > the knife

        • Jeffy

          *Bitch slap > Panic knife

      • It will, but in a power melee form.

  • Ryumoau

    love that we can preload it that far in advance, but the midnight PACIFIC time is pretty bs. Eastern time should be the standard for midnight releases on psn. It benefits everyone and its been used before on certain games already.

  • Adam Nord

    Can anyone tell me if I pre-order this digital copy, do they take the money out of the account now, or do they wait till a couple days before actual release?

    • Vivek patodia

      wait till the actual release.Money wont be asked for right now

  • Abdullah

    Well isn’t that a Bit** ! We were promised October 30 for the PS3 / PS4 which is fair and at the date of this article xbox still didn’t have pre-loading but Now ( The 12th of October ) and the xbox 1 has pre-loading and pre-loads started for them ONLY since about 3 days ago !

  • Someone

    Mine Is Not Pre Downloading

  • Marijuanaman

    Is somebody already preloading it?
    I am in germany and don’t know if the german ps store got it to pre – load also on the 30th
