On the eve of its grand release, PlayStation 4 users have experienced a host of problems when trying to pre-load Activison’s Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
In theory, the feature should allow players to download the file ahead of time so that it is good to go as soon as the general release occurs — Advanced Warfare’s Day Zero edition notwithstanding — but Sony has acknowledged that issues will force players to delete the file and re-download it in its entirety.

Considering that Advanced Warfare weighs in at just under 40GB on PlayStation 4, players have been left understandably frustrated. Sony has since redirected users who have encountered the problem to a dedicated support page in the meantime.
At this stage, it’s unclear whether this issue is due to the console’s recent firmware 2.0 update, which has caused an array of problems relating to Rest Mode and even the alpha for Turtle Rock Studios’ Evolve since it was released last Tuesday.
Neither Sony or Activision has issued a statement pertaining to this pre-loading issue on PlayStation, but we’ll keep you right up to date with the information as it appears.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is set for its general release tomorrow, November 4th. For those of you who pre-ordered the game on PlayStation 4, tell us, are you experiencing this issue when trying to pre-load Sledgehammer’s title?
