  2. Search for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare in the store.
  3. The price will show “Free” or “Download”.
  4. Click the”Free” or “Download” and you should be taken to the “Download List”.
  5. Now go to the PS4 and the item is ready for download in the PSN Store.

For PS4 version:

  2. Go to the PS3 PSN store and you can now download the item.

Original Story:

Already known to be affecting Xbox owners, Ask PlayStation confirmed on Twitter that they’re “aware” of the issues with Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare on PlayStation, particularly the pre-load/pre-order issue where some people are unable to access the game.

If you’re experiencing this problem, the PlayStation Support offered up a solution:

If you pre-loaded CoD: AW and you’re experiencing issues with the game, you must delete all pre-load files from your system and re-download all Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare content.

Please ensure you download all available updates for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and your system is running the latest system software.

Re-download steps

  1. Restore PS4 licenses. [Settings] > [PSN] > [Restore License]. If this doesn’t solve the issue continue to step 2.
  2. Go to Library, highlight Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and press Options.
  3. Delete Game Content.
  4. While still in the Library highlight Call of Duty: AW and press X to re-download the content.

As Ask PlayStation explained in less words about pre-load problems, “If it persists, delete and re-download Advanced Warfare.”
