    One step closer to better gaming experience for everyone. However, I would like to see these patches on Playstation platform at the same time with another platforms…

    • RdJokr

      PSN and PC users will probably get it this Thursday, to enable the Ohm for season pass owners as well.

    • dfsv

      They tweeted out they are just waiting for Sony’s approval so it can go live

    • ScOott

      It really doesn’t matter or effect anyone … It’s just something for people to moan about … If Sony approve the patch first I won’t cry, if Microsoft approve it first other people shouldn’t … its not that big of a deal Who approves first imo … What has it come to when people argue over who gets a patch first, or people feeling the need to have it at the exact same time as another console ..

  • Gimp

    Have they added the ability for the game to be any good?

    • Slothigans

      Actually laughed at this. Lol. But I like this game. I play ranked play. (:

    • Drasadex

      $29.99 DLC.

      • But to be honest, that is a bit cheap, maybe $99.99 is a bit more accurate. 😛

    • Mike Hunter


  • Daniel Sims

    Maybe if Season Pass owners weren’t screwed over AGAIN by not being able to download the Map Pack.

    When this happened the first time, I understood as things happen. The second time, they’re idiots for letting it happen again. Now for THE THIRD TIME, I really hope the greedy bastards at Activision don’t ever hope to make Season Pass sales anymore.

    • Mr.good News

      But hey! You saved ten bucks right?

      • josh

        Lol ikr

    • Mike Hunter

      Same thing here ffs all the money they make and still screwing us

      • Jaaziel Delgado

        And so, as it is the first time Im suffering because this ****ers, I must ask, ¿Did they fix this error in the previous COD games? or we are really screwed x(

    • Jarszy

      You do realize that Activision is the company who allows to to get on Multiplayer… They are the company for multiplayer servers. Nothing to do with any of the basics of the game, like updates, gameplay, features, etc. You need to take your outrage to Sledgehammer, not Activision.

      • Daniel Sims

        Sorry but you have no idea what you’re talking about.

        Activision is the publisher of Call of Duty. They are the company that funds CoD, makes the most money from CoD and most importantly, they make all of the business choices that relate to CoD.

        SledgeHammer Games is simply the developer of Advanced Warfare. They also take their orders from Activision.

      • RebornAngel666

        They are SHG’s boss. They own them. They should be telling them to do the RIGHT fucking things but they dont

    • Random

      Exactly what issue do you have? I have had no problems with any DLC – just go to the in-game store, select the DLC (which will show a price), and then a pop-up appears explaining the DLC is already owned and can be installed. Are you expecting that it will show “free” when you select it? Because it doesn’t.

  • Gimp

    ‘Local only’ option needs to be added, 90% of my games are on 3 bar

    • Baruck obuma

      same here

    • I’m having that same issue as well sometimes. I have 100mb download and 20mb upload speeds. Is that not fast enough?

  • Ball

    Ok. So First DLC comes out, and theres a bug with exo zombies, you guys realized you made a mistake and fixed this. Now its time for the second DLC to come out, A lot of people that have the season pass go to download the DLC and we have to pay for it! I get messing up once, but when you guys let it happen again is stupid. Make sure you guys get your shit straight before you release this shit

  • EmbraceThePace

    The only way I’ll get excited for a patch is if they remove skill based matchmaking. I want the old COD back.

  • Flash1098

    #RIP any last-to-next gen players who didn’t keep AW and their 360. That’s how I’ve been getting the dlc. Download it on 360 and its immediately available on ONE for free as an install

    • SaintMortichai

      That’s what I do! =)

  • Treyarch #1

    Sledgehammer are the most useless developers ever. How come the PS4 and PC versions get neglected once again? Looks like Microshaft have patch ‘exclusivity’ now. Perhaps if the game wasn’t so broken; it wouldn’t matter but this must be the 100th patch on this dreadful game and were not even halfway through yet. This industry is a complete joke now and it’s no wonder every game releasing is rubbish, broken or full of mircotransactions.

    • ScOott

      Maybe it’s because the dlc is ready for xbox so they push it out in one big Patch … Or may be Sony hasn’t checked it yet … Either way it’s not SH fault (for a change)

    • Duke of hazard

      You people really do know how to give the gaming industry the impression that cod fans are dumb as hell. The patches are tested by first parties. SHG can’t simply just roll them out. Do your research before posting like an idiot.

      And you’re a fucking hypocrite. Bashing games for micro transactions while having a treyarch fanboy name.

    • Lol

      Condrey tweeted out “#AdvancedWarfare Xbox game update notes incoming shortly via @SHGames. Lots of goodness in this one. PSN update soon pending Sony approval.” So it isn’t Sledgehammer neglecting PS4. So sony is the reason you haven’t got the patch. You do realise most games come out with several patches during it’s time? It’s better to have more patches than none and it’s better to have several small patches instead of a couple big ones that still has some errors that they won’t fix until the next big one.

      There were micro transactions in BO2, that’s a treyarch game…

      Treyarch is #1 but think before you type.

      • Gameshark 979

        In your opinion. I personally hated the animations in every one of trearchs games, but that’s just me.

    • jahladagaming

      I agree they are fairly useless but the Xbox first thing is nothing to do with them, it’s a deal that has been in place with Activision for years.

      • ScOott

        Ur wrong Microsoft have no deal with activision over patches… I wish c.i would do an article on this to inform people about this, because as soon as a patch is released people moan about “exclusivity” They have to approve the patch then soon as that is done it’s good to go

        • You are mostly correct Scott. But, because of Microsoft’s deal with Activision, the base game is made for Xbox, then ported over to the other platforms. Normally the patches are released at the same time, but for AW things have changed. Like you said, the patches need to be a approved before release, and that’s where all the confusion occurs. I just a wish people wouldn’t be so ignorant at times. :/

    • SoulTaker

      Question next year is your username going to change to Infinity Ward #1????

  • ScOott

    Does this mean gun game is now split screen ? 😮 ? … I will pee my self with joy if that’s the case

    • That means it’s easier to boost though. It is fun to play with friends though.

      • ScOott

        True but cod is a game I 95 % of the time play split screen … I was really annoyed when I couldn’t play it due to no split screen … They should just do more to clamp down on boosters imo Without penalising split screeners who just want to play the game

        • Who do you split screen with?

          • ScOott

            My wife, she has a plus kd in all cods apart from this one … (Don’t know why maybe cuz of sbmm think she might just get put in with people of the same skill level as me n while she’s good, she’s no where near as good as me lol)

          • Cool! I wish my girl friend played cod!

  • Alex Reyes

    Anyone else get mad when they are scoping in with a sniper and it keeps scoping out while your prone and you don’t get the kill ? Or is it only me ? D:

    • Aceshigh87

      This is the first CoD I can recall where you can’t move while zoomed in and prone (at least with snipers) which means if you try to hold your breath but slightly hit a direction you’ll go crouched.

      A nuisance for sure but that’s why it happens. Has forced me to learn how to not hold my breath haha

  • LovekillerX

    Treyarch put this article on Facebook page:


    • Baruck obuma


    • Matthew


    • This isn’t special, it’s already in AW.

  • Slothigans

    Does anyone know if The previous map pack is in the regular playlist now? Xbox one.

    • ccrows

      Yes it is…

      • Slothigans

        Thanks (;

      • ScOott

        Wahoo … The wait has been a biatch

    • Jake

      No its not it has its still Havoc playlist aswell as the new playlists.

  • ShankSquadIII

    After Ghosts, Microsoft and Activision’s contract expired (If I remeber correctly). So Activision and Microsoft signed a new Contract which would now also contain Patch exclusivity for Xbox

    • lol

      Wrong, Condrey tweeted out “#AdvancedWarfare Xbox game update notes incoming shortly via @SHGames. Lots of goodness in this one. PSN update soon pending Sony approval.” So it’s up to sony to release the patch not SHGames

      • ShankSquadIII

        Sony normal approve this sort of stuff really fast with AAA Games. But I guess they do have to up their quality control with COD

        • Treyarch #1

          Ignore everything Condrey writes on twitter. Sledehammer are always late with their patches on AW instead of rolling them out at the same time like every other game on the planet in history. It’s nothing to do with sony – sledgehammer’s game is broken and they cant even patch the game properly so they blame sony to avoid the wrath. theres been 3 patches this year where the ps4 version was 2 weeks behind the xbox 720p one. it’s a joke and no wonder nobody plays this game now.

          • ShankSquadIII


          • ScOott

            U have to be a child… No adult is that thick

          • AstroCyborg

            its all sony sony has to approve every update for every game the same way microsoft has to byou wanna blame someone blame sony

          • blackburnt7

            Sony has never been late, not even 1 day, let alone stand 2 weeks. I have to agree with Treyarch #1, I don’t think the late patches are Sony’s fault.

          • AstroCyborg

            keep on damage controllin

      • PS4 update a 60$ dlc

    • They did sign a new contract, but only to continue getting the dlc first.

  • arcengine

    Just hit level 30 again and no advanced care package. I have gone over 100 levels without an advanced supply drop and a regular supply drop.

    • Advanced Warfare is broken!

      dont worry, sledgehammer will patch this sometime next year

      • blackburnt7

        what is that word ‘patch’ you talk about? never heard of, neither does SHG I believe.

  • Aceshigh87

    Still no patch about 2nd player in Split Screen not being able to see After Action Report? I get that split screen isn’t priority but this problem has been around since launch.

    • And the 0 effort on it. the screen effects aren’t even cropped for splitscreen, such as using the Exo in any way and using Exo stim

      • Aceshigh87

        Plus all the in-game chatter (enemy captured the HP, we lost B, etc) all echos since its done twice. They put split screen in but haven’t cared about it at all.

  • wtf SH add variants and all the outfit parts into local already

  • njnj

    i miss cod, too bad i cant play because of sbmm

    • WhiskeyDick

      You can still play! You just are too much of a pussy to play with players of your same skill. Blame it on whatever you want! Plenty of people play aw without whining about SBMM constantly if ever! I think it’s sad all you opposing SBMM feel the need to whine all over the Internet! No one cares except those with similar opinions to you!

      • iReallySellPower

        You are a lad.Anyone who whines on CI about SBMM. shouldn’t bother commenting IMO

  • Dylan

    What about losing challenge progress in prestige? Trynna get my Red Baron calling card

    • TheDemonOfHate

      I doubt they’ll patch the resetting challenges. It’s part of the prestige system. You should just complete the challenge & then prestige. But if your GMP then just prestige.

  • blackburnt7

    first thing I was searching for was; removed SBMM.

    couldnt find it tho:(

    • mkApex1

      it will never be removed again black ops 2 was the only time. Activision the publisher wants sbmm its gonna stay.

      • blackburnt7

        still got my hopes up for Treyarch’s game. they removes it in BO2 so maybe they won’t put it in now.

  • drjakeyoung

    Has anyone noticed that the Charlie Intel logo is now in the black ops style, and the picture from the side are from black ops 2?

    Mods, do you know anything we don’t?

    • Romeo Benjamin Laurente RN

      Black Ops 3 Confirmed

      • Then why is everything like BO2?

        • Romeo Benjamin Laurente RN

          Possibly hinting at a black ops 3 announcement soon.

          • I hope so!

          • Dr. LilRobot

            i think charlie knows just as much as us. all of the art they’re using is black ops 2 art, so they’re just assuming hey, black ops 3 probably??

          • Seems like it.

  • onuris

    We need search match preferences like in bo2 please n nerf the god damn asm1, a reduced fire rate made it more accurate!!

  • rw

    worst game ever and bugs all time, i have the season pass and i cant download dlc

    • kenji jojima

      i can agree about the worst game sentiment, but i too have the season pass and have never had an issue dl’ing dlc. you might want to try a fresh install

    • Brenden Lewis

      What happens when you try to download it? Do you go to the in-game store and it has a price tag instead of free?
      If that’s the case, just select the map pack anyway; it will say you have already purchased it (season pass) and prompt you to download it

  • Fariko Lunatik

    Come on man how come weapon varients are still allowed in ranked play??? And why cant they update the fuckin esports rules

  • wafllekingxl

    I keep getting a disc error since the update -_-

  • Brad

    Still waiting for the update that removes skill based matchmaking

  • Kobrah

    As usual, Xbox gets the patch first… SMH

    • Kill Denied

      Deal with it

      • Kobrah

        Well there’s not much else I can do

    • GinsuVictim

      It’s a patch for new DLC, so of course it was there first.

      • Kobrah

        80% of the patch was unrelated to the DLC

  • NoZi

    I found a fix, this should work. when I went to create a class, I went to OHM gun I pressed on the last ohm weapon supply that needs to be purchased but if you have aw season pass already you shouldn’t have to buy it but anyways press on that last weapon and it will open up the download for the ascendance dlc pack and it will download for free because you have the season pass. The dlc pack is 1.04GB. So I hope that this works for most people!

  • wayneinnh

    The Flak Jacket perk is now useless in hardcore. Every idiot with a tube now looks like a COD god. I’m so disappointed in this game.
