As announced by PlayStation at E3, if you pre-purchase select editions of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare* at participating retailers on PlayStation 4, you can get access to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered’s Campaign on October 5.
Activision Support has posted a new FAQ with more details on how this offer will work.
If you are planning on buying Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare* at a retailer, you must fully pay off your purchase of the game in order to get access to the MWR Campaign 30 days early. Pre-orders are not the same thing as a pre-purchase.
Once you fully complete your purchase of the Legacy or Legacy Pro Edition, your retailer should give you a download code to enter on the PlayStation Store. That code will give you access to Modern Warfare Remastered’s campaign on October 5. Check with your retailer if they are participating in this offer.
In the US, GameStop and BestBuy have confirmed that this offer is valid at their stores.
For GameStop, their site states that online preorders will receive an email with a code on October 5. For those that preordered in-stores, their site states that players should visit their store on October 5 to get a code printed on their receipt. In order to get the code, the entire game must be fully payed off by October 4 at 11:59PM.
BestBuy’s site states that they will email you a code once you have fully paid off the game either in-stores or online. Full details on BestBuy’s offer is available here.
If you are planning on pre-purchasing the Digital Deluxe or Digital Legacy editions of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare* digitally on the PlayStation 4 Store, you will automatically get access to the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered Campaign starting on October 5. PlayStation Store will notify you on October 5 when the Modern Warfare Remastered Campaign is ready for download.
The PlayStation 4 Store requires you to pay the full price of the game upon pre-purchasing it on the store.
This offer only grants 30 days early access to the campaign of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered. The multiplayer mode will be available to play on Friday, November 4, alongside Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s* release.
All of the progress you make on the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered Campaign prior to the November 4 launch will transfer over. After the early access period ends on November, players who had early access to the campaign will be required to re-download the full, final version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, included in select editions of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. The final version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, which launches on November 4, will give you full access to the multiplayer mode, alongside the campaign mode.
This offer is valid from now through November 3rd — meaning if you pre-purchase at a retailer or pre-purchase digitally after October 5, you will be granted immediate access to Modern Warfare Remastered’s campaign on PlayStation 4.
Xbox One and PC players can get access to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, alongside Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, on November 4.
*Offer is valid with the purchase of the Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s Legacy, Digital Legacy, Digital Deluxe, or Legacy Pro Editions, only on PlayStation 4.
Contact your specific retailer if you have any additional questions about this offer.
